Missing Peices

Missing Peices

I have fantasies of writing about my life

Let you hear my inner monologue

Give you the visuals that only my eyes have seen

But, and isn't there always a but

I cannot recall

I have pieces missing

I have pieces missing from the story line

A story line where in I am the main character

Chapters have been lost

Almost as though I skimmed through them

Disconnecting and dissociating

I sailed on rocky seas holding to the sides of a ship

Eyes closed relying only on my instincts of survival

Pieces taken here and pieces ripped there as I struggled to hold on

Yet I held to poetry

Simplified, short, and dense word play to best describe my emotions

All because I cannot remember enough to write my own story

I have started a journey

I have invited in my greatest fears and have forced myself to analyze them

I am tossing away what no longer serves me

Who no longer deserves me

Me and all my missing pieces

Welcome! I am glad you've found me. I intend to write everything from poetry, horror, lyrics, and erotica. It is my dream to be a known and succesful writer and creator.
