The Blood of Night

The blood that drips from the dark moon is only that of my shattered heart.

I roam the dark forest, feet dragging through the damp floor. The mist begins to surround me. The scars of my life engulf me. The demons intertwine my damaged existence. I do not notice the person in the reflected fog. The demons have my soul. I feel a presence behind me.

I see his face through the mist. Wicked blue eyes, mysterious smirk. His hands glide down my arms. Our hands connect, and I feel a sense of energy rush through my battered soul. He slowly whispers in my ear.

“Don’t let them tell you how to pace your life.”

My ghost is gone. I could feel what he was telling me. These demons are supposed to be my angels. But they have consumed my passion. I would rather live a thousand lifetimes with the devil then have the angels take my existence.

Look Up Video

I'm posting a video about social media on social media. I do believe social media is beneficial to communicating, but there comes a time to look up.

The Power of Choice- A Look At Bella Swan

This may be a sore subject to many, but I want to discuss “The Twilight Saga.” There are a few people in this world who think Bella is not considered a strong female character. They tend to say her whole life revolves around a man, and all she does is cry. They compare her to Katinss or Wonderwoman. They say she is not strong because she’s not like them. Here’s my argument. Bella is not supposed to be Katinss or Wonderwoman.  She is a normal 17 year old teenage girl in today’s society, who learns to thrive in a supernatural world.

“Twilight” is about making the right choices, and learning how to live with them. It’s about learning who to become or what to become. Bella knows her life was not meant to be normal. She wanted more and knew she could become more. She found her life with Edward. We’ve all been there. Everyone has had their heart broken, and when it’s the right person its hurts more. Bella should not be judged because she had her heart broken. This does not make her weak or feeble. By the time the story reaches “Eclipse,” Bella tests her choices. It was never about Jacob or Edward. It was about what kind of world she belonged in; a human or vampire world. She chose vampire. Bella stands up for herself during her pregnancy. She did not let Edward, Jacob or anyone talk her out of having their child. It was her body and her decision. This ultimately led to her choice to die giving birth, but then was changed. She found her strength and power in being a vampire. As she stated, she was born to be a vampire.

The Velvet Room

It’s dark, the light is gone

The wind and rain slam against the window

I hear Mozart playing softly in the Velvet Room

The candlelight dances against the satin curtains

I glance at my reflection in the hollow mirror


My dark eyes hold nothing, no emotion

My red hair in tight curls, shines in the soft light

My painted red lips, still

I stand, walking in a trance to the Velvet Room


My red dress trails the floor, like blood

My mind tells me to run, but my body moves in a zombie like fashion

He waits, in the Velvet Room

He waits for my soul


I know he’s dangerous, deadly and fatal to my existence

But his dark eyes reek of seduction

His long dark hair sits above his shoulders, as he runs his hand slowly through it

He trails his finger across my lips

I breathe in and close my eyes




I open my eyes and look around The Velvet Room

He stands in a corner, a knife in his left hand

He walks toward me, smiling

“You are mine.”

He slides the knife down my neck to the core of my chest

In one quick motion he cuts my dress open and drags me to his hell.

The Burning Rattle

The petal falls

The thorn breaks

The blood oozes

Upon my battered face


The venom enters

Constricting my airways

Squeezing my lungs

Striking until I break


It bites into me

Pulling my flesh

Gnawing my skin like meat

Trying to swallow me whole







Yet, I won’t let the burning rattle get me

I won’t let the slithering pain consume me

I won’t let the poison control my body

I will fight the clever creature invading my all.

A Small Thank You...

I have been influenced by many people in my life. My family, friends, professors and coworkers have all contributed to my success, and helped me achieve my goals. It’s very rare for someone I don’t know to have an effect on me.  Well, someone I don’t know has inspired me. The funny thing is I feel like I know him. I could easily hang out with him on my front porch, drinking a beer. For those who do not know who Norman Reedus is, please let me introduce you.

Yes, you can Google him and find his full filmography from The Boondock Saints to The Walking Dead.

Yes, you can read about and view his amazing photography.

Yes, you can follow him on Twitter.

These are all his amazing talents, but there’s so much more.

I met Norman this past October in Savannah, Georgia. The one thing that sticks out the most about meeting him was his patience. I have so much respect for someone who can deal with so many people day in and out. I work in retail management and my patience runs short. It may sound cheesy, but my coworkers look to me as a leader, as Norman’s fans look to him to be inspired. I couldn’t keep the similarities out of my mind.  It really helped me change my leadership style with my coworkers.

I know many fans post this, but I’m still shocked that he follows his fans on Twitter. For him to take the time to hit the follow button inspires millions. There could be that one fan across the country having a bad day, and he changes everything for that fan by following them. How can that not inspire or influence someone? I was one of those fans. I was working and studying so much, that I forgot what I loved. I love to write. So here I am, writing on my blog again.

So thank you Norman Reedus, for making me a better leader and allowing me to recognize my passion once again.

Old Bonaventure

The full moon unleashed the ghostly night into the air

The moss hung from the trees like long horrific fingers

I walked slowly through the old graveyard, bare-footed, caressing the moist grass

My dress curled in the wind, as I waited in old Bonaventure.


The ghosts were in the air, the old dog pack racing through the gravestones

The weeping statue of Gracie Watson, softly filled the air

A dinner party of apparitions laughed in the breeze

I smiled as I felt his presence nearing, as I waited in old Bonaventure.


His breath slowly traveled down my spine as I felt his warm hands around my waist

He slid my dress straps down baring my soul to the midnight sky

I turned to him, kissed him with a fiery passion as we collapsed to the ground

Intertwining as one

Lips moaning together

Hands exploring each other

On the grounds of old Bonaventure.


The secret was safe

Safe with the ghosts who roamed the grounds for eternity

The night of passion and infidelity would be buried on the grounds of old Bonaventure.
