It’s that time again! 🙂 It is now officially December’s poetry weekend on The Undeveloped Story! Today, I’ll be posting a few poems that I have written and tomorrow if you want a poem you either like or have written to be posted here, send it to me via e-mail at thestoryinme@gmail.com. You can also just send me a link of the poem if you have already posted it on your own blog.

My first poem inspired my recently completed serial story, The Painter. I wanted to post this one during October’s poetry weekend, but I decided to wait until I finished the story, so I wouldn’t give anything away!

The Painter

The paintbrush flew across the blank canvas

as the bright colors began to bleed into the white.

Making the emptiness feel small again.

His wrinkled hands never shook when he

possessed that brush between his fingers.

It was like his powerful weapon

drawn and ready to show the world.

The scene he painted was of a magical world

that he wished he could back to.

A world where everything was peaceful.

The love of his wife waited for him

by the wooded area in the backyard

of their cobblestone house.

She stood there, smiling bright,

her blond hair blowing in the wind.

She would wait for hours for him to arrive,

so they could live happily ever after again.

Once he was finished, his hand fell to his side,

spattered with bright colors of paint.

The brush fell from his hand, clattering to the ground.

He knew that it was his time.

That magical world he created was waiting

and the painter had arrived.


Blanket Full of Stars

Laying down on the dew filled grass,

I look up at the stars above.

They glitter and shine amongst the blackness

of the vast sky ahead.

I started to point and give each one a special name.

Each one had it’s own identity.

They kept me company on this cool night.

They kept me warm and safe

It was almost like a huge blanket.

A blanket full of stars.


Such a Shame

It’s such a shame that you really meant nothing to me.
You came into my life like a severe thunderstorm,
Building intensity as you went along,
Throwing my whole world around without a word.
I guess it’s a shame that I never stopped you.
That I never really took cover from the debris.
You made all these promises that you couldn’t keep
As the rain kept pouring down around me.
I knew what the game really was.
I’ve played it for so long, you see.
I’ve seen storms like you come through,
Trying to make as much chaos and damage as you can.
Trying to make my whole world fall apart.
It’s such a shame that I couldn’t care less
Now that you’re really gone.
The sun has come out again and it’s all becoming clear.
There’s not a cloud in the bright blue sky
It’s a shame that you think I needed you around.
It’s kind of a shame that I don’t think about you.
You rarely cross my mind,
Except for the moments when it begins to rain
And the rough winds blow through.
But it always goes away as soon as it comes.
It’s such a shame, isn’t it?

This past week  has been a very busy one for me, so I apologize if I haven’t really focused on this blog. My writing has also suffered this week, but I’m sure that I will get it back soon.

Have you ever had something happen in your life that has really made you sit back and evaluate how you live?  That has happened to me last week. I don’t really want to go into the whole thing in detail, but it has affected my thinking.  Achieving my goals have become even more important now.  Life is too short to waste, you know?

Finishing my book is now more important than ever. It is my focus and I will make it to the finish line. Why? Because I refuse to give up. I refuse to let people down.  If you want to achieve something, you should do the very best to accomplish that.

Tomorrow, you will get a real post, I promise. 🙂 Just wanted to check in and tell you all that I appreciate each and every one of you that stops by to read this blog. I can’t believe how much it has grown. I can’t believe how much I have grown as a person and a writer.

Oh, and I think another character interview is coming up soon. Be on the look out for that!
