I cannot recall many of my old fears
Or taste the insecurities of days gone by
They've been swept away like autumn leaves
Leaving behind only the faintest trace

That being said I question their potency
And their impact on my conditioning
We all accumulate such things
Even if their ghosts are beyond our grasp

I've grown into one culmination of a chaotic world
An example of continual coalescing
Just another person wishing to understand
By pulling on threads that only multiply

Ever present questions yearn for answers
Driving me to reflect on what I can't remember
Keys aren't scattered through the past
Yet my impulse is still to dig

I attempt to dust off old moments in time
To examine the catalysts forming my reality
Even though I could choose to be something else
Truth be told I don't know what I'm looking for
Driven To Reflect
This is my first crack at writing in over a month. It took a while to start the machine and get the gears in my head shifting again, it was honestly kind of unnerving. I keep meaning to regain my consistency, but like this poem it's a lot of work. I'm hoping this is a step in the right direction.

I wasn't sure what to title this one to be honest, it took a lot out of me and I feel like something should have sprung to mind more organically but for what this exercise was I suppose this will have to do.
The past isn't what I long for
Funny how I couldn't see
How I crave what it represents
Another blank slate for me

I don't miss what I once had
So much as what I could have done
What time I had I wasted
God knows I'm not the only one

All this time I've looked back
Perhaps not understanding why
Clinging to fluid reasons
Letting my fleeting present die

Young mistakes I can understand
But I haven't been young for a while
It's time to stop looking back
And make what time is left worthwhile

Irony can be a bitter thing
As I had my blank slate all along
Our futures are built in the present
To each new day we do belong
Blank Slate
Welp, here's the first new poem of 2017. Feels weird to write that, but it's a thing. Last couple years I've really set my writing down and that disappoints me. I'm not going to make any promises because that's rather pointless, but I'm hoping to be a bit more creative and consistent this year in regards to my writing. I'm not going to set a number goal this time, but I hope to be more productive than I've been the past few years. Here's to hoping.
I don't wish to be kept
Perhaps someday but not now
Not until I know what I want

There's not enough to give
And so much work left to be done
No one else will build my future

My heart is encased in iron
It's unlikely anyone will melt it
But I wouldn't have it any other way

Romance isn't everything
Some things are more important
I'm driven to stand on my own

Until the end I will be here
So I would build stability for myself
What comes after time will tell

Some days I'd like to be kept
I've got a heart in there somewhere
There are just things I want more
Encased In Iron
This has been rattling around in my head for a while, not the poem but the sentiment behind it. For the longest time I wanted to be had, to find fulfillment in people and to dive into that whole relationship/romance/whatever bit again, but I don't want that anymore. I haven't wanted it for a while. More than anything I just want to build me, to build my own life and my own future. I'm not prepared to invest in anyone all that deeply when my greatest investment needs to be in myself. Maybe I don't have to do it all alone, I've pondered that myself but I'm not ready to dabble in that direction right now. I just want to build something for me and I'm willing to make sacrifices. I'm willing to sacrifice things that may or may not make me happy to get where I want to be.

If you're curious about me, just send a note or something? But I suppose I should at least put a few things here.

I'm a hobbyist poet, I've been writing for.. shit. Seven years now I think? A lot of what I've written hasn't actually made it to dA, but those were likely things I didn't want to keep. I'm Canadian, I live on a beautiful island on the west coast. I like artsy shit, music, nature, books, video games, minerals, the odd movie/show when I can find someone to watch with, singing, photography and a bunch of other things.

I also have a tumblr if any of you are interested in that sort of thing! Go stalk me at! Stalkity stalk stalk.
Well, shit. Really, it's been a long time. Hell, it's been over a year since I've uploaded anything and I'm sorry for that. I've not had a computer but that's a sorry excuse for slacking so much in regards to my writing. This time the ball was a bowling ball dropped through a hundred story glass building. Oops!

Anyway, I'm gonna be putting a conscious effort into writing more often and uploading. I'm actually doing the same bit with my singing, which I might share at some point because why the hell not? It'd be stupid to abandon my passions, so why not share them?

I apologize to all my followers, to the ones who've followed this profile because they saw something they enjoyed. Here's hoping you'll enjoy what I've got to offer you going forward!
  • Listening to: The Dark Half by Aesthetic Perfection
  • Reading: Yet another Star Wars novel because I adore them
  • Watching: You in the shower (this never changes!)
  • Playing: The Witcher 3
  • Eating: Applesauce of all things
  • Drinking: Drinking in the satisfaction of being back
