Dylan’s Drugs 

Will I always be second choice?

Hurt by time

Wanting to rewind?

Waiting for the right to be myself and

Feel good

Like no-one else?

I’m on an axis

Not quite balanced

A world unto one

No fun I guess

How do I conveniently

Become blessed?

What’s it to you if I want to regress?

And be in the past because it affects us

Passing by I try

Every day I live and die

Singing like a bird

My battle cry



Dear Lord

Please give me clarity to move past my pain

And live again

And the strength to be

Who I want to see

shook me off

I love to write, cook, and take photos. As an INFP personality type, I truly care about others and my values. I'm a fraternal twin, have two older brothers, and I served in AmeriCorps. I love my family and my boyfriend. They rock! For years, I collaborated online with Stuart Armitage (UK). Our band, The Lyre Effect, released several albums, though we never met in person. Additionally, I've written a novel, novella, poetry book, and children's book series. Being into the visual arts from a young age, I've had my artwork featured in several gallery exhibits, enjoyed providing assistance on music video sets, as well as acted in and co-directed a few short films. Playing piano and singing are also passions of mine (wrote my first song and poem when I was 9 years old). Currently, I'm part of the writing group, Lead Us Ink, and published my first poetry book in 2015. In this technological age, I think it's important to share the written word, something that will always be sacred and personal. I hope this blog will help me to connect more with others, and I look forward to networking with readers like you. I want to find out about new music, interesting articles, and artwork. So, please, reach out to me. I might even have some good suggestions for you. Take care, and happy reading!
