To Hide Away

I want to hide away,

Away from all of you.





You may think my pain is about you.

You may think I am thinking about you.

No one thinks about you.

No one cares where you are.

You think they should; you demand they do,

And that is why they don’t care where you are.


I want to hide away,

Away from all of you.

All to the pain,

The heartless words, only said to hurt.

No feeling inside.





I want to hide away,

Away from you.

All the pain you cause, when I have more.

My pain is not about you, though you think everything is.

Everything isn’t about you, though you want it all to be about you.

You want to hurt and tear people down.

This is why I hide away.


I want to hide away.

Away from you.

Away from all your pain.

The heart words, you only say to hurt.

No feelings inside.

The Fairy

The sun hit her long chestnut brown hair highlighting the golden hues.

Her wings glistened in the sunlight as she dried herself and turned. 

She smiled looking at him, with her gaze falling to his eyes.

His sea-blue eyes that made her blush but who was he?

He was in awe of her beauty, of her wings and her eyes.

Her green eyes looking him up and down.

He knew her; he knew her gaze.

It warmed his soul as he stood there wanting to go to her.

Wanting to touch her, to talk to her, but he found he couldn’t speak.

The fairy twirled as she dried the rest of her clothes,

Whirling her wand around her emerald dress.

The man watched her with a yearning smile on his face.

He knew at this moment; the fairy was to be his.

The fairy, however, bowed and vanished before his eyes.

Lord, give me the Strength

So much time in the day.

So much to do and yet so little time.

The hours tick away, and yet so much more to do.

The guilt I feel, when in don’t spend enough time with them.

The guilt I feel, when I need to work.

The guilt I feel, when I am just too tired to move.

Lord, give me the strength to give them the mom they deserve. 

Work and life, but all I wanted was to be a mom.

Feeling lazy and wishing I had more time.

More time to spend with them, more to give them.

The life I didn’t have and the life I want for them.

So much time in the day.

So much to do and yet so little time.

The hours tick away, and yet so much more to do.

The guilt I feel, when in don’t spend enough time with them.

The guilt I feel, when I need to work.

The guilt I feel, when I am just too tired to move.

Lord, give me the strength to give them the mom they deserve.

Biting and Gnawing

Photo by Daniel Jensen on Unsplash

Why can’t you be happy?

Why do you delight in others’ misery?

You can’t be happy for your friends?

You can’t stand when they are happy?

The pain of regret will come to bite you.

You will lose out and others will move on.

The cut will deepen as the time passes.

It will gnaw away at you until there is nothing left.

Your flesh will rot away as maggots eat you alive. 

It will fester and scab over, leaving you as horrid as you are now.

Opening again at each new sting.

The sting of pain and regret will eat at you,

gnawing away the new skin and devouring you whole.

The life of one with no happiness and the life of one who is not happy for others.

Is an empty, useless, decrepit life.

Support (A Poem About Supporting Others)

Support I give and rarely receive.

How is it the ones closest to you,

Are the ones who don’t support you?

Strangers give you praise and those you love

Wonder why they should.

Why can’t we praise people and support those we love?

Are we only there to support, when times are rough?

Why are those in your corner, not truly there for you?

When they have so much to give when your cards are down, 

But nothing when you achieve your goals. 

The Shadow Realm Chronicles: Maeve

CHAPTER 1

THE GREAT WAR

Many years ago, darkness tore apart the worlds. They called it the Great War, for it was massive and involved all the realms of each world. Enemies on either side grew their armies for battle with heavy casualties. New allies formed out of this bloodshed while old ones crumbled.

The world of the Faye changed forever as their king descended into madness. His name was Julian. He once was a loving ruler, but those times were long gone. The pages written of him now are full of rage, blood, and hatred. Hatred for his children who grew to love others and revolt against him and his rule. Hatred for his wife, who fled with his children and hatred for all the realms that were not under his rule. Julian needed his children because they were powerful. Each one controlled one of the four elements: wind, water, earth, and fire. Even though his children hated what he had become, they remembered the good in him and were perhaps the only ones besides their mother who did.

Marius, the leader of the vampires and Jonathan, the ruler of The Shadow Realm, fought alongside Julian, but they did not trust him. Each of these three men was scheming against each other as they all wanted to come out the victor.

Jonathan had many plans and plots forming in his head, but they all revolved around Maeve. Maeve was a fairy, but she lived in a quiet world. The one world that was protected from the Great War. Jonathan didn’t care what Julian or Marius did as long as it didn’t interfere with his plan but interfere was what they did best. Jonathan had great plans for Maeve and her family, but he knew little of her connections to Julian’s family.

The Great War might have been over, but another one was looming in the distance, and it all began with a lonely mother named Maeve.

Come find out what happens to Maeve.
