I'm going to attempt to be more active on my dA from now on. Though who the Hell knows how long that will last. Recently, I took a trip to Savannah and not only was it very much needed but the place was actually more gorgeous than words could even describe. Beautiful trees with Spanish moss dripping from them. Cobblestone was everywhere and the buildings were so rustic and had the aura of 18th century New Orleans. We went on a ghost tour at midnight and it was genuinely terrifying and interesting. I adored it so much, I didn't even care that my feet were screaming from all the walking. I got wicked drunk in the hotel room and I'm pretty sure our whole room almost had a massive orgy. I was the only one that kept their alcohol down. I ended up being the mommy all night but I didn't even care, I was just so happy to be around them.

Then right before we left, I got to meet Anne Rice. She spoke at the convention and I was an emotional mess the whole time. She signed my copy of Memnoch the Devil and I asked her what her routine was before she sat down to write. She was so patient with me and explained her whole routine. She then asked me if I was a writer and when I told her that I wanted to be one desperately, she said "You should do it. It's definitely worth it." Anne Rice is my favorite author in the entire world, past and present and it meant so much to me, I get really choked up every time I even think about it. And I plan to do just that, Anne. I will be stubborn. I will not stop. I WILL write.

The taste of cigars
That's what her tongue held for me
Dissociation
Cigarettes
A love-life isn't always pleasant.

(Contains: strong language)
Earth exists within him
Something shockingly kind
Gentle as the warmth of a breeze
Combing through blades of grass

Like a river rock
Smoothed by cool ponds
The sharpness of anger
Dulls to a whisper

There's a pureness in him
That should not exist
In anything but sunlight
And children's bedtime stories

Yet it stands
Year upon year
Ever moving, ever growing
Ever laughing, loving
Crying and comforting
Tears like droplets of citrus
That soothe rather than sting

And a tenderness
That makes the word "Fuck"
Feel like the exhalation of clouds
You Shouldn't Say 'Fuck'
A poem I wrote for my friend, Nick for his birthday

They've said the sands feel like silk
They were right
They've said sea foam feels like God's breath
And I believe them tonight

I've walked into Infinity
Where a zipper-line crosses the sky
I am not afraid of the ocean's salty kiss
I am not afraid to die
Midnight Ocean
Recently I went to Myrtle Beach and at 2 in the morning we all decided to sneak out of our rooms and walk on the beach. We could see the Milky Way and the complete blackness of the sea blended with the sky. That night will always be special to me.

My machines are broken
So I dried my clothes outside
Now my socks feel like clouds
And my shirts smell like the sky

I'm a writer and that is truly all I identify as. Words have always been my only means of conveying emotions.
