Man, it has taken me a little while to get back into the swing of writing. I took a small break after The Lost Guardian but now, I’m regretting it. It’s alright though. I’m starting to find my groove again and I’m almost finished with the first five chapters of Souls in the Dark which is the continuation of Erin’s story. The sad thing is that I’ve only got six chapters planned. I got bogged down. Hopefully, by already writing what I have, it will help the creative juices to flow so I can finish the outline. I love my outlines. They help me to stay focused and help me to pace my novel more efficiently. And it looks like it’s working! My brain is churning with scenes, dialogs, and what not. Once I do my first block editing, I’ll turn back to the outline to get it done before I start writing again. Anyways, time for me to head back to work. Till next time people!
In honor of Valentines Day, I have decided to share a poem dedicated to love. However, I decided to take an unconventional approach. Instead of talking about how in love a person can be, I thought it would be better to have a poem showing the other side, when love starts to fade. Love is wonderful, I love my husband dearly, but sometimes things happen that get in the way of love. Maybe work is getting to be too much? Maybe there was a fight and both parties are too proud to say they are sorry? Or maybe, the love you once felt has faded away as you and your partner have grown and changed. Losing love is just as much a part of life as falling in love. Both are necessary to life because how can we appreciate love if it doesn’t go wrong from time to time. So cherish the love you have for those around you and try to not let things in the way, but also remember that sometimes, there’s nothing you can do. When that happens, all you can do is pick up the pieces of your heart, dust yourself off, and get back out there.
So Close, So Far
How can this be?
I do not know?
How can you be so close and yet so far?
Even though we sit here together,
It feels like you are a thousand miles away.
The space between us could hold the world,
Yet I can reach out to touch you.
How did we get this way?
I cannot remember anymore,
I hope it was important.
I want to fix it,
I know you do too.
But we both are too proud
To say “I’m sorry first”.
So we sit now in total silence, tense,
How can we be so close and yet so far?
