I sat in the middle of a room today To become acquainted with the space To see what the space would say To see if I'd become its next prey I sat there with an open mind Let the space see what it could find Each response seemed so assigned Now I'm unsure if the... Continue Reading →
I've been lulled into a false sense of purpose Where nothing seems too urgent Rendering me wordless I used to fear the bump in the night Now I'm afraid if I don't wake up That'd be alright I tried to be the monster The bump under the bed But I'm just in your head Life is... Continue Reading →
So, I was slightly scolded and very honored when I wrote my post about acquiring 100 followers (though after 99, I had 2 people follow my post at the same time, so it ended up really being 101 followers). I was honored because heck, that's 101 people in the world that like my writing enough... Continue Reading →

Hello Everyone, it’s time to do this again!
Are you a poet? Do you enjoy writing poems until your heart is sore or until it soars?
I’ve held a poetry contest once before and I absolutely adored it! It was a blast and I got to meet tons of amazing poets and bloggers. For my current followers, you may have noticed an influx of poetry appearing on my own blog lately. What can I say, it’s simply flowing out of me! Anyhow, I am so excited to hold an “End of Summer Poetry Contest.” Unlike my first Poetry Contest, this contest is themed!
*Please be sure to read all of the rules, otherwise your poem may not be eligible!*

A reminder that it is enslaved here, too
By its own beauty, its Clair de Lune
Much like the hearts it shines to woo
Are we not all but silhouette
As such, ’tis only shadows we beget
The shrouds that encompass each starlet
Illuminate dreams and prayers unmet
Footprints on the sand, then, are soul-deep
And as I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
That, into the world, my light might seep
My name is December Rose… Well, that’s not entirely true, but I prefer that name as a writer. Just like everyone else, I’m not just a writer. I’m also not just a musician, engineer, coffee enthusiast, or child, but I am all of those things and plus a bit more. I’ve lived life and had my share of wonderful and regrettable experiences, and found that my place…

Searching for answers between the lines Lines in the palm of your hand Searching for the slightest sign Sign that is your heart's fervent demand I search your eyes and see it unfold Unfold like cloud shape shifting Rampant, it could never hold Hold shape: I saw my own soul searching Searching, I found only you. Confess
The whispers of dawn de-throne streetlights Who they themselves committed mutiny in an outcry What other reason does the dark need for corruption Except that it was led by a false light, a half-light But now the half-light has had its anarchy The darkness, its unwholesome frivolity and revelry So I say to the sunrise:...
