concediu de odihna

Goodness me, has it almost been two weeks since my last post? Oops, well, have some poetry. In case you couldn’t tell from the title and image, it’s based on my trip to northern Romania a few years ago. Life is an adventure, just wait until you see, Maybe someday it’ll be worth what this … More concediu de odihna

Sonnet IV

Closing on those summer nights, I can’t bear to say goodbye. The fun we had reached new heights, And now my laugh turns to a sigh. For you to dream of new ways, So that we can meet and I see your face, Has me counting down the days Until our time to fall from … More Sonnet IV

It’s stream of consciousness, and I was doing one of those write-750-words-a-day things and I thought a poem would be a … More When The World Died

The Raven

This one’s based on the Edgar Allen Poe poem The Raven. As I walk down the long and winding street, I start to wonder where I’m being led by my feet, Because I don’t know my way down this path of concrete, And with every step I take I can hear my heartbeat. The sky … More The Raven
