This year has been, by far, the worst of my relatively short life. Things are getting better, though; all of the craziness of the last few months has finished its business and moved on, leaving me here with a barely noticeable twitch in my left eye and several dirty coffee cups in my bedroom. 

I'm working on writing a serial story. It's fantasy. I'm not all that confident in my prose-writing skills, but if you want to read the first tiny chapter, here is a link. (Did I mention I'm not a prose writer? Haha.)

Aside from all that bizness, I'm just hanging out for now. I'm writing more poetry, too, thank all the miscellaneous gods and such. Maybe I'll be around here more, too!
Mythically,
I will transmute myself:
       flesh into flower,
       bone into bark;
and I will fall into myself
with the weight of it all,
and when it is time,
I will unhinge, blooming,
uprooted and jaggedly blossomed,
and even this will be prelude
to the upwardness of growth.

-

And I will know:
growth entails stillness.
With patience, I will cultivate myself
unceremoniously, desperately;
I will not be heavy-handed
nor dense in presence.
I will be still:
still and inching and still, unceasing
until I shuck myself,
give birth to the heartwood beneath,
and bear myself, quietlike, against the hillside.

-

Someday, someone will recall
the scatted membranes of summer
and roll back into sleep,
wishing for the curl of a lover's hair
or the ghost of skin or voice:
of this, there is certainty.
The Oracle at Dawn
An oldie but a goodie.

He did not hand me philosophical bullshit -
no 'endings beget beginnings'
or fatalisms -

he handed me a glass of whiskey
and we sat silently in the space
where he'd build a porch
if he could swing it.

There is silence in the house.
The word for this is:   unfettered
                         or:   cold-bodied
Soft
Tiny poems are kind of nice, in their tininess.

I haven't been writing lately because I've had some personal stuff going on. I was engaged, but that relationship ended a few weeks ago after a long time of being difficult to handle. After the relationship ended, I moved to a new city, and I'm moving from place to place until the 15th, when I have a place to stay that is truly mine. 

Because of all of the upheaval -- emotional and literal -- I just haven't written anything. I'm sure that I will, soon; a place of pain is a place from which many people draw inspiration. For now, though, I'm going to lay down with my cat, watch Netflix and eat a bunch of pizza.

I'm a college student that likes to write poems. Occasionally, I'll write a short story or two. Beyond that, I mostly sit around in my house and read.

Congratulations on a well-deserved Daily Deviation! :squee:
I was, perhaps, a wee bit devastated to end my favorite-ing spree so soon. ;_; I hope we'll see more from you; you're quite excellent! :la:

Aw. I appreciate the kind words! It was certainly exciting to see the whole Daily Deviation thing, haha. 

And thanks, by the way. I'll try to submit more poetry -- and I hope that you like my future poems, too! :)
