    Life Is My Muse

    I am thirty-six years old. I have been writing inspirational writings since I was a little girl. I have written thousands but I don't always show them to others. I take negative things that I survived in life and I write positively about them. Various things like how I was born...

    Fickle Muse?

    I write poetry when I'm inspired But when will she come Soon is what she always says But I'm left alone to ponder And tear up my dreams Sometimes I'm afraid the she"s too beautiful to be with someone as ugly as me.

    A poem written each day,

    Revealing you can say, What has crossed your mind, Helped your passions to unwind, Kept you awake at night With the thoughts of a delight, Dreams in the hanging tree: You sample so many experiences of life On that journey to become someone 's wife.

    Inspiration Flows

    Sometimes I just get this overwhelming desire to express my feelings, and a poem (or a story) is born.  The words come flowing from my heart, out through my fingertips and dance across my keyboard.  It hits me out of nowhere, and I grab a pen and some paper or log...

    I just want to live “I don’t want to

    scream, I don’t want to lie, I just want to have a normal life. With friends and folly, balanced in time, I just want to have a normal life. Why can’t I stop this searing pain? Why can’t I be secure and laugh again? Why have I stopped to live at all, when for me it always...
