The other day I got the urge to write this down. Sometimes my creative juices just flow out of me unexpectedly (~just writer things~) and I’m not sure where they come from or what they mean. When I finished writing this poem and read it back through, my initial reaction was Damn, this sh*t is dark… Read More Could I Be Any More Bleak?
Alright here we go. For any of you who listen to the radio (or are even connected to the world at all……) you’ve probably heard Adele’s new song ‘Hello’. Basically it’s amazing and if you haven’t heard it go listen to it right now. I’ll wait…… Okay, so anyone who knows Adele’s music knows that… Read More Let’s Get Serious: The poem I was never going to post
Helllllooooo again! Forgive me for not posting very often but I’ve just been so busy since being back at school. Today I thought I’d talk about freshman (seeing as though they just arrived at Gettysburg two days ago). This being my sophomore year means it’s my first year really getting to see the freshman from… Read More For All You Freshman Out There

Once again, I wrote this for my poetry portfolio mid-way through last semester. It’s probably one of my favorite poems because it just sort of flowed out of me, as if it was just begging to be written. I think it only took me about twenty minutes to write the entire thing. It just really represents… Read More Let’s Go Far Away
It’s time for another poem! This one was written for my portfolio at the end of the poetry unit in my creative writing course. At the time I didn’t quite have enough poems to meet the requirement for the assignment, so I needed to write one more. Music always inspires me, so I put my headphones… Read More Inspired by a Song
As I mentioned in my last post I want to be able to use this blog as a way to post my writing. So this is my first attempt at doing that! It’s kind of scary but here we go! So I wrote this particular poem a few months back as an assignment for my… Read More Inverted Syntax
