Since I give you insight into my sorrow, I also want to share with you my moments of joy. One such moment came to me today, which multiplied to moments, which multiplied to hysteria. But wait, I’m putting the cart before the horse…

2:00 pm Realized there was a master's… Continue

This post, a poem titled "Your Body Is Your Emissary", responds to a writing prompt at Carry on Tuesday. The prompt requires the use, wholly or partly, of the opening line of "All I Ask of You" from "Phantom of the Opera": No more talk of darkness, forget these wide-eyed fears.

This is a new poem I wrote to incorporate a Carry on Tuesday prompt consisting of the first four lines of Shakespeare's Sonnet C ("Where art thou Muse...?").
