the start of a new journey

The start of a new journey begins with, simply putting one foot in front of the other and walking towards the hurt, the pain that makes you want a new start. waking up in the morning and realizing there is a purpose, a reason! Trying to figure it out will take time, time that nobody thinks they have. You have to just believe in yourself, and have hope! If life ever gets to hard to stand, kneel, just close your eyes and think, im here for a reason there is something out there for me and even You! wpid-images-72.jpg.jpeg


I am

I am the wild
Fragmented shards of broken glass

magnetically recomposed

I am the free

Unexpected outpouring of



showing my most inner self

I am human

Tears of the purest joy

droplets of pain


in a collective muddled river that twists and winds

meandering through life

basking in and absorbing

the rays of the morning sun
feeding, swirling

becoming a homogeneous mixture

I am the healer
Wade in my healing waters

find comfort and solace

as you snuggle

enraptured in my wings

radiating love and strength

So that you may take flight

once again

As I have

The Void


Not feeling yourself
Nothing seems to fit

Lost amidst the swirling, churning thoughts within the confines of your own mind

Like a tiny boat being tossed about on a dark, torrid ocean

Robbed of the ability to connect the
or even to connect to yourself

Not knowing why

Unable to make sense of anything
Misfiring attempts to process


Not wanting to hear, nor able to believe that everything will be fine again

Harsh reality of the ebbs and flows

I will sit upon the edge of this abyss unobtrusively with you
Feet dangling together

Never judging
Simply loving
Just being
For however long it may take

Not for a response
For none is needed

Just giving patience

Just to let you know
I will never give up on you


I will stand eternally with you and offer belief when you are unable to believe in yourself


I will never waiver
I will never leave your side

I will never expect anything in return
I will just be here

The eighties spawned a number of new horror franchises. While the likes of Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees were stuffing their floorboards with crisp fifty dollar bills, others weren’t so prosperous. After a strong start, The Howling series ended up shooting up in an old run-down subway and…

 Why is it that so many of the souls I am so very blessed to come into contact with on a daily basis seem to lack belief in themselves? Yes my beloved Grueheads I am speaking to you. I may come across as Scarlet Genesis, companion of Keeper of the Crimson Quill, oozing confidence from every pore all day, all night, and a natural-born leader, but let me assure you this is not always the case. I love y’all too damned much to ever tell any lies. I scribe brutally honestly and unapologetically, I feel it only fair to warn you that true to mirroring life, things aren’t always as they appear. Surprised? I thought not.


I know for certain some of you have sussed out the above, as you have reached out to me, offering the strength and warmth of your…
