Sometimes I get a little bummed out, sun’s out.
Sometimes I get a little gunned down, sun’s down.
Sometimes I feel I need to hide out, tide’s out.
Sometimes I feel I need to slide back, tide’s back.
The tide looks a little like a melted moon,
and sunlight is music in the proper tune,
people think tomorrow is the time to be,
but right now right now is growing on me.
Give me the bullet like a fallen soldier,
or life to the fullest so it’s I who holds her.
The past is a memory, the future is the end of me,
today I have the energy to polish off this centerpiece.
Put me on display because I’m almost there,
I have worked to earn my wings and so it’s only fair.

I am a marketing consultant and aspiring writer, with a major in English and a minor in history. I have been writing poetry consistently since my senior year of high school and have since published three poetry books and three novels. I have also written several songs and a few short stories. I also wrote and published a trilogy of novels, my Troika book series. I am currently working on a large-scale multi-book fantasy series that I am very excited about! Writing is a part of my every day, and I would have trouble finding meaning or the will to keep going without it.
