This is a poem that I wrote today that was not inspired by anything in particular, it just tells the story of someone who has everything they've ever wanted and still struggles to find happiness in it all.
So, I ended up writing a second poem today, again inspired by the music. This time it was Ludovico Einaudi's "Seven Days Walking (Day 7)" album. This one is a bit more 'raw', and it includes some background noises like a creaking piano bench and it inspired this poem.
This is a poem I wrote yesterday for my brother's birthday today. We were very close growing up. I looked up to him and followed him around like a shadow, and though some of that can get lost with age, it never goes away entirely.
This is an except from my upcoming novel "Forsaken of Silence", Troika: Book III, which mirrors a very similar section from the previous novel. They are the only two sections quite like this in the whole series, and for whatever reason I am very fond of them.
This is a poem I wrote for my dad since today is his birthday. He lost his brother to suicide many years ago, and plans on getting a tattoo of a seagull to commemorate his brother's free spirit.
This is a poem that I just wrote about my maternal grandfather, after whom I was named.
