Smile – Short Poem

I heard a voice say Everything will be okay The clouds will make way For the sun today

A Beautiful Kind of Mess

For years, I wore that mask, trying to feed the word the lies it taught me, yet over and over, I’d fail miserably, and the consequence of my failure was ridicule. It isn’t so hard now; these days, my smiles come with ease, and sadness is no longer a monster I grapple with every night,…

To Heal a Broken Heart

I thought I had changed. I thought I could take on a new world, and abide in the boundless love it has to offer, yet, instead, I only find that I sabotage myself. Anger stirs in my soul, and love becomes bittersweet. I should have known better than to give in to desire, for now,…

Writing Update: New Projects, Wattpad Books

Hey guys! It’s been a while since I’ve spoken to you like this, but I have some important news for you. Lately, I’ve been making big plans, and simply cannot contain my excitement. New Projects I am currently working on two projects: a novel and a poetry book with a running theme. I hope to…

True Love

Must I always be so blind? True love it seems I never find Yet ever do I seek it But no one ever seems fit To play the role of a lover In this troubled mind of mine

Remember Me: A Letter to Someone Special

It pains me to let you go, but it pains me to let you stay. You must set me free.  I had promised years ago to not let anything or anyone come between us, that is, truth and I. But I admit, whatever logic or reasoning I had before I met you, it had all…

The Book Experiment

Lately, I’ve really been getting into reading books. It is long over due, I should think, as a writer must first become a reader in order to hone his or her craft. Truth be told, I’ve grown a little tired of romance and mystery novels these days, so I’ve decided to experiment a bit. For…

Only Hope – A Poem

I cannot make sense of that which haunts me Nor of these desires that consume I cannot make peace With this mind of mine Which chases death, but yearns for truth Every fibre of my being Longs for the One Who saved me in my youth Yet only ever do I find That I am…

Invisible

All my life, I’ve felt invisible, as if I could vanish today, and no one would notice. Growing up, I was the quiet girl, and it seemed that, “Oh, she’s just shy,” had become the catchphrase of all the adults who thought it their duty to help me appear to be somewhat normal. I was…

To My Faithful Followers

Sometime ago, I discovered WordPress, a place to share your thoughts and reflect on the thoughts of others. I am so grateful for this platform, and for the support of my faithful followers. Blogging, for me, is not only a way to express myself, but to inspire and encourage others. The beautiful thing about blogging…

Ghost of You

That voice, once string and proud, now an echo It haunts me day and night Like a ghost hiding deep in the cracks of my fractured soul   Could it be, we’ve met our end? Silence speaks for itself Yet quietly, patiently, I keep on waiting Hoping to find you again @dainellewrites

You Are Brave.

When people hear the word brave, they think, “Soldier.” Often, you see others commending soldiers for their prowess, telling them how strong they are, and who can disagree? To put your life on the line to protect your country is pretty brave. Though I must say, I am not a fan of war, I see…
