Cloud of Despair 

Like the clouds

I am free-

to be who I want to be. 

A puff of white

or a blackened canvas. 

An attempt to change me will result

in failure. 

A twist in fate-

just enough to sate

the beast within. 

Who dares to answer the call?

Not me,

for I am nothing. 

A cloud of freedom and despair.

Simply put, I'm a thirty something single mom of three young boys with a passion for reading and writing. Writing, and reading for that matter, has been a passion since elementary school when a friend and I had our short collection of poetry published through the school where it was on display in the library for an entire year. While I still enjoy poetry, my love has grown into short stories and full length novels. Tag along for the journey, it'll be documented here every step of the way.
