Scribblings and scrawls of a hopeless romantic soul


Inspiration Call



Captivated. I’m chained to your love.

In response to Inspiration Call: Write a Six Word Story

Be Yourself


I think it’s time to cut the ties
Of doubt, distrust, and disbelief
Steer away from all the lies
Cut loose the strings of utter grief

No one can tell us who we are
No one can read us from our scars
In life we may tumble and fall
We’re not a puppet, after all.

I am trying out a new form of poetry called Rispetto. A Rispetto, an Italian form of poetry, is a complete poem of two rhyme quatrains with strict meter. The meter is usually iambic tetrameter with a rhyme scheme of abab ccdd.

In response to Inspiration Call, here’s to being brave and fearless to be yourself. Have a great Sunday everyone! 🙂


If I should walk the path alone
Face the unknown
Brave the abyss
In clenching fists

I would walk with faith in my heart
Beam as I start
Follow your will
Let go and kneel

For you alone are my savior
You are my cure
The one healer
My redeemer

Too afraid to fall
She never did get a chance
To fly or to land

In life and love, we’ve all came to this point. How did you take the chance?

Carried Away

She used to be a summer raindrop pierced by sunbeam
A moist breath wringing the willow reeds
A pattering beat to the calm and silent
A tinkling harp of droplets to the meads Continue reading “Carried Away”

Like wildfire it burns
Embracing us with its warmth
Scorching, rough, and mad.
