Here and There

Read me a story,
And I’ll write you a line.
Tell me of a place that I couldn’t find.
Said I’ll be there when you get here,
And that was no lie.
God’s honest truth, I’ve been here since July.

  2. lol *Dusty swoons*. Write a book, god damn it. but seriously, I love that you have the resolve not to publish nothing but the best. Because like, good poems don’t fall out of me every day. I hated having to publish anything other than what I loved, in this class. And the pressure to produce something every day blocked me, in a way. Maybe I am just out of the hang of it. I dunno but I am glad that class is over.

    1. Finally!!…Finally!…Someone who shares the exact same sentiments…Where have you been all this time? (Here, as in WP of course. But I’m sure you catch my drift.) I thought I could hack the a poem I day thing. I really tried. But those assignments kept coming. I got stuck on the limerick. I stopped bothering with it. Skipped to the ode. I’m still stuck on the third verse. Eventually though, I think I’ll finish and publish it just to be done with it and throw my hands up and surrender. This poetry thing isn’t as easy as it looks.
      I was really excited about the prose poetry assignment. All I manged to get was s jumble of words and and idea of a story.
      I think everyone has their own personal groove/method thing and you shouldn’t beat yourself up if you’re kind of falling behind. (I do feel guilty 😦 )
      And your poems were awesome. I loved the realness you put in there. And as creepy as this sounds, I do go over and look at them from time to time in my inbox 🙂
      …So now you know you have a stalker. Sorry, I let that slip.

      1. Thank you! I’m glad I’m not alone in that unable-to-crank-out-a-poem-a-day category! God, Art, I love your writing. And, I’ve always wanted my own personal stalker. Likewise you too. 🙂

  3. Shit. I meant not to publish *anything*, etc. I still hate typos, and grammatical errors, despite what my About page says.

    1. Hi Dusty 😉

      To answer your question: Nope,I haven’t been nominated for a Liebster award, which is okay I guess considering how much I’m terrified of getting awards. My follower count right now at 10.10pm, is 65…gah!!…I’m thinking that if I hit 5000, then I’ll finally be able to perform miracles…I’m still waiting …

      1. (You slay me). Well good, then I’m nominating you. Unless you don’t want me to, because being nominated, the process after, is a sh*tload of work. Actually, scratch that. I’m nominating you, then YOU can always decline. PS I keep telling my writing thingy at wpadmin writing NOT to change my smileys to actual smileys but it keeps doing it. Arrgh! WTF! I want the good ol’ days when a smiley is a colon and parenthesis!! 😉 I do not like those lil icon things. Some things are sacred!

      2. I guess I should have written to each blogger I nominated but decided to do it all in a post. Sloppy? Probably. I was trying to do LESS work on here, not more lol!!
