It's National Haiku Day, apparently, so I tried my hand at haiku. Here it is: When will Senpai see, I’m the perfect one for he? I ship it so hard! And here's another, in case it's not clear enough that I have no idea what I'm doing: My friends write haiku. I don't know how … Continue reading Haiku?
I wrote one of those poems that only sort-of rhymes for a change. Those are weird… I can't sleep tonight. I've been lying here forever.

Keep me in your memory, and I'll be up to the task. As long as I stand here, rose wrapped … Continue reading Poem #18
I really don't have a consistent schedule for these. I'm trying to put them about 24 hours apart but there are gaps, and there will be gaps until I get it figured out. This isn't a formal challenge or anything, it's something I'm doing for me. I've also been asked to do some illustrations for … Continue reading Poem #17
