You’ve been warned

The seven or so days before my moontime are always rough… My emotions run even closer to the surface than usual, so close I feel as if my skin might split. I feel volatile and like all of my nerve endings are red-hot and raw, prickling with electricity. I feel everything so acutely, so deeply…

Blood Roses

Plant roses over my body and water them with your blood only yours will do for my heart belonged to you   Plant roses where I rest and tend them with your own two hands only yours, yes For I was only ever yours   Let the thorns prick your flesh a small recompense for…

Fever dreams

My nephew spent the night a few nights ago and he had a bit of a cough… fast-forward about three days and both he and I are down for the count with some sort of germy awfulness. We both had headaches last night that knocked us flat, and his mama told me that his was…

New-ish writing bits

It’s been kinda quiet around these parts since I started up nursing school again, but I’ve been writing tidbits here and there. The following tidbits popped out of the aether the other night while writing my nightly words on http://www.750words.com, and I liked them well enough that I figured I’d share them here. ^_^ I’m…

Wild Child

There are poppies in my palms Bears, too, and rabbits. Crows and seagulls call and cry from my throat, Moss covers my nail beds, soft and rough in equal measure. Nettles woven make my arms, painful, precious medicine. Cats twine between my shins, furry beneath my skirt. My hair is spun by spiders, shining silver,…

One off story – Chipped Stardust

Her nails were coated in chipped stardust, a lit cigarette dangled between strong fingers. Crimson lips, slightly parted, exhaled smoke into the cold Winter night. She was here for a purpose, for a reason, for a person not even she knew; but she was here, waiting, watching. Silent. Dark glittering eyes taking in everything, missing…

Beautiful Freaks Fest

  Welcome, all my fellow freaks and oddities! In celebration of all things that are other (ourselves included!), all things beautiful and terrible, dark and wonderful, bright and full of sharp edges, I give this bit of story.

Traveling inner landscapes

The past few weeks have been hard… my depression has spiraled down deep and I’ve been clawing at the walls trying to drag myself back up into “normalcy”. I’ve been extra tired, especially the week leading up to and the week of my moontime. I’ve wanted to retreat into myself and just shut out the…

Wandering the Edges

And so the journey continues, within and without, and has lead me once again to a new place to write.   Spring is here in full force, after hovering uncertainly at the edges of Winter for a few weeks. She arrived in an explosion of color and a scent on the wind so sweet it…
