Instant Poetry Vol. 1

This past week I posted three poems on my Instagram account and wanted to share them here. I am very proud of them and hope you find something in them that moves you. If not, then I did my best and I wish you well. If you do, then stay a while and maybe we can inspire each other.


As a writer I typically always carry a pen on me regardless of whether or not I’ll actually use it, I just believe I’ll always need it, I usually have a little notepad with me too. In the days of smartphones and tablets though I find myself using my phone now more than ever to jot down story ideas or concepts and even to craft full projects. I still absolutely adore the feeling of pen/pencil to paper, but it does feel good being able to share something with you so easily.

Thanks for reading, may these find you well and may your heart beat strong. Be kind to one another, love deeply and be weird.


Depart From Me

For tonight I thought I could share something a little different with you guys. As I sit here writing out chapter 4 of The Gathering. I found myself distracted going through and deleting a lot of old Instagram posts, from before I even knew how to use it correctly (I still don’t use it correctly). While I was doing this however I came across a poem I wrote back in July of 2013 that I really liked. I re-read it now and still like it, so I figure that means it might actually be of quality. With that being said I hope you guys like it, and maybe find some inspirations from it.

Here goes.

Depart From Me
Like lines you cross, 
Like vines across.
Tangled and unmentionable 
Shielded from the day, 
A sign to many
Which means to say
I never planned to stay.
