    About Me

    I love singing out loud. When no one can hear me. I write so many love poems I could write a book. "There is no boundaries, no locks anyone cant put o your mind," and i use it. I think what ever i want and almost always write it down so I dont forget. I love a lot of...

    Singing and Writing Poetry Help Define Who I Am

    I write poetry about my life experiences - sometimes words pour faster than I can write. I've done this for years and by doing this, I've learned about myself, connected closely with others I care about, and better understood my inner feelings. When I was a teen, I sang in a...

    A Little Something

      I just wrote this without to much thought. Please don't be to critical. I have suffered writers block for years.     What was one a electrical tingle from your touch is now a urning for you love what was once the passion from your lips is now the absence...

    Arbre De Vie - ( The Tree Of Life) Feedback On My Writing Is Greatly Appreciated!

    Writing and Singing Were Great Passions.

    I used to write poetry and songs all the time. It was like I could put a pen to paper and words would just flow. I guess with the husband and kids life got so busy and stressful that I lost the time or something. I try but it just doesn't come so easily. I met a friend who has...

    There's a heaviness in my chest

    that I can't explain. There's this weight dragging me down that I can't explain. There's a part of me that wants it to all go away, but there's a part of me that deserves disarray. There's dozens of scars, bruises and cuts for each and every sin that I can't explain. And...
