building into explosion on the inside,
sorrow transforms violently into attack
crushing all that I had held dear to my heart
leaving me broken
closer to comfort
swim down white funnel river
to peaceful fields
the last meadow
I can see nothing here, floating in a void,
the vast space encompassing beyond the sun,
blanketing its warmth, blocking the light from one
vision destroyed. I'm

collecting nothing in void beyond the sun,
where lost galaxies shall drift apart, avoid
each other and dissolve inside final void,
where they become none.
Sapphire I
Full title: Sapphire I (shut out from the sun's warmth / solitude in intergalactic space)

The Sapphire form is restriction I've added on to the Sapphic stanza. Rhyme scheme is ABBA, BAAB.

It's much less awkward when you don't pick words like 'void' for the rhyme :V
In what was once our own land, we have become
the slain, refuge, discarded, disregarded
venom will ensnare us and we will become
those of no longer
quoll holocaust
short and sapphic
with my hands - weave the dust
with my hands - the stars explode
in my eyes - collapsing to nil
in my eyes - points in the expanse

stellar magic

gases weaving into the core
destruction will feed my soul
my expanse is fed by this pain
the brightness is in my veins

stellar magic

magnetism to wield the flares
cannot flee the celestial wrath
in my mind - the burning will cease
in my mind - i am one with thee

stellar magic
Was thinking of this while writing

Hey there. I'm a graduate student at the Pennsylvania State University, and I finished my undergrad at the University of Pittsburgh in 2014. Writing's been my hobby since high school. Here you'll find all sorts of stuff - poems, lyrics, short stories and a few longer works.

Take your time and look around.
Hello to whoever reads these!

I'm proud to say that I'm now a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh! I'll be starting graduate studies nearby at Penn State this fall, but I'll be moving up to start my research at the end of May.

What does that mean for this account? Well, my updates were sporadic at best anyway...

But there is one thing I want to finish: Pokemon RED. It's very close to the end, so I way as well! Expect updates there before the month ends.

Beyond that I can't say. More lyrical poems? Certainly. A short story every once in while? Probably. Anything longer? Maybe.

The future is an open road...
