Don't Forget to Comment! - Something Scary is Here

For the giveaway so far, I am seeing a large amount of traffic but only a few comments. Remember that in order for a chance to win the book you want, you must leave a comment along with the name of the book you want if you win! Have fun and I hope you are enjoying my writing!

Here is a short, scary one for you all:

The undead walk among us,
Pale faces searching for food.
Who will they feed on next?
They can drink blood from anyone.

They come so slightly in the night,
That we would never hear them come.
They stalk their clueless victims,
And wait for the right moment.

Suddenly they grab their neck,
Making their mark like a hunter.
The victim cries out for mercy,
But the damage has already been done.

Hope you liked that short poem about the undead. Happy Halloween to you all, will be back with more posts as our Halloween Giveaway continues!

Goodbye "Friend"

Like a swarm of maggots over the trash,
Your hateful lies have eaten me alive.
I can't handle your misery anymore.

You always find my secret hiding place,
Whenever I try to escape your evilness.
Your schemes are as lame as daffy ducks.

Your immature ways no longer scare me.
I am ready to face your rentless, ruthless wrath.
You are more cowardly than the cowardly lion.

My pity for you is dry like a deserted desert,
My trust broke when the mob showed up on my doorstep.
My trust should have broke when the rumors started.
I was decieved by your stupid lies,
I thought to myself, my friend would never pass rumors.
For the longest time, I defended you.

Even as it became more obvious,
I still stood by your side and stayed your good friend.
Without proof, why would I ever blame you?

You played me as a pawn in your game,
If you were ever my friend you would have told the truth.
Rumors and lies are never the answer.

You told lies about people I love;
Terrible lies that made me look weak and stupid.
Until the suits came, I had no real proof.

Lucky for me them showing up gave me a sign,
A sign that you were behind all these things.
Everyone told me they didn't send them over.

Other than them, only you could send them.
By deduction, there was my proof of your guilty verdict.
That ended our friendship forever.

I am not headed for a divorce;
My husband has NEVER raised a hand to my skin.
I also am stronger than you think.

These actions are why I am not your friend,
While I should have confronted you about this,
I was too hurt to even face you.

I was upset about losing you,
But I could not condone your disgusting lies.
Real friends never hurt their friends this way.

This is my way of saying goodbye to you.
While I miss you, I am better without you.
Time for me to move on and find real friends.

A Few Trio's of Modern Wisdom

Past is already gone
Present is what can be changed
Future is the unknown

Being Young is a gift
But with age comes wisdom
Time is life's teacher

Live life like a free bird
Love like a wild animal
Die with lasting honor

Friends are valuable
Love is a war worth winning
Hate is not a virtue

Writing Haiku's

In light of my new obsession with writing Haiku's, here is a site I have been posting to where you can post and make your own:

To help me count syllables and stay true to the 5,7,5 form, I use the following site:

These items give me an outlet to write concise poetry to help me sort through my thoughts during a period of my life where I am very busy with school, work, and the never ending drama of my family among other things.

I will be posting another Haiku based post in the next few days. Feel free to read my entries on
