    Mending A Broken Heart

      Good morning, everyone. How have you all been doing? I have been doing great actually, for the most part. πŸ™‚ I know it’s been a bit since I’ve written on here but mostly because I’ve been doing more writing offline than on. Usually when I write I post whatever I’ve written almost immediately but that’s brought me to a point where everything new is being posted. That makes it hard to come up with new material that you haven’t seen that might go into a book. And it looks like I may be getting to the point where I have an actual book of my very own poetry to…

    Prisoner of War

    Prisoner of War By Jesi Scott Would that I could turn my anguish into clouds, Then ask the wind to blow it away.

This one wasn’t particularly bad, but it wasn’t the greatest either. To say I’m happy that Monday is finally here is an understatement. I get two days before I’m back in my closet hiding out with the wine, cheese, crackers, pillows. blankets, books, music…my little padded room with all the necessities I need to make it through a holiday weekend with four kids. Truthfully, I’m only dreading it because three of them are…

    Definitely NOT the Ballroom Blitz

    Hey everyone. How are you? I’m doing ok today. Still feeling a bit down but I think I’ve finally reconciled my feelings and we’ll see where it takes me. Let’s get into today’s poetry challenge, shall we? We’re writing about being late,Β and the anxiety and stress that creates. The suggested poetic form is the Blitz Poem, and while I am not overly fond of it, it has an interesting effect that does intrigue me. I prefer reading it to writing it and I think you’ll understand why in a moment. You see, it’s a lot like word association. It’s one thing to say it out loud, and another to put…
