The First Eclipse

Your eyes remained closed

You did not utter one word

You didn’t sit up

And say, “Hey, ‘Shanie!”

And then, so suddenly,

I was falling, falling

So fast and crashed

Into the black, cold abyss,

A growing pain in my chest

As I fell deeper still

A sparkling glint caught my eye, oh!

Coins upon coins, watches,

Frames full of pictures

Painful memories flash before my eyes

Alas, the pain grows

To be so unbearable

I look upon my chest,

And through the flesh and bone,

My heart, my vulnerable, weary heart,

Had broken in two

All the pain,

All the sadness,

All the struggles

Had been

Too

Much

The tears cascaded down my face

This man, who loved me until the very moment he died,

I would never see for decades to come

“I love you, Grandpa.”

I whispered desperately,

But he did not hear

Outcast Update(s)

While I know for sure I want to complete “Outcast”, it will take a long time, for a number of reasons (School, family engagements, etc.). But, in the mean time, I’ll still be writing short stories and poems. Also, I would love any and all comments and feedback about my writings and/or the blog in general (I’m thinking of maybe taking on another author to collaborate maybe? I dunno if it’ll work out). I’m also thinking of doing a Q&A or something like that? I don’t know, but if you guys wanna ask questions about stuff, I’ll probably put one together if there’s enough questions I guess.

See you later.
