Photography & Poetry

Memories of the times we shared
Rush over me like sea foam
Hand in hand,
You and me against the world

A time when we had no care
All around the world we roamed
Hand in hand
You and me against the world

When things were simple and seemed fair
You always kept me close
Hand in hand
You and me against the world

Lyrics & Photography

I wrote this song my sophomore year of college. And I found this accompanying photo on Unsplash, an awesome website that collects photographs under the license of Creative Commons Zero (which is a license that allows people to use these images completely free of charge for any purpose, including, sharing, editing, and for commercial use.) So if you’re a blogger and you’re looking for images to use on your blog that won’t get you fined check out the Unsplash website and follow them on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Pintrest. But enough with the shameless promotion haha.

This particular photo reminded me of the mindset I was in when I wrote this song. I was crushing on a new friend and couldn’t get them out of my mind and I wrote this song as a way to deal with the fact that they liked me too but because of our personalities we didn’t mesh as a couple, but even then I still wanted to be with them.

Be Mine

Verse #1:
You kiss me slowly and I glow.
You look at me and I never want to go.
Why can’t you see you’re all I need?
We come from the same star, you were made for me.

Chorus:
Be mine; you’re all that I need.
You are the one, the one of my dreams.
Baby you’ve got my heart; you have my soul.
Will you be mine? And I’ll be yours.

Verse #2:
You smile at me and I know.
You hold me close. I never want to let go.
When will you realize that you’re my soul mate?
We belong together for now and for always.

Chorus: 2x’s
Be mine; you’re all that I need.
You are the one, the one of my dreams.
Baby you’ve got my heart; you have my soul.
Will you be mine? And I’ll be yours.

Rap:
Stop playing now you know that I’m in love with you.
Cause even in my dreams I always seems to think of you.
Day or night you’re on my mind.
Rain or snow you’re all I know.
Come on baby don’t ever let me go.
I’ll be by your side all the time. You can count on me.
Baby it’s you that I want when will you see?
When will you finally see, you’re the one for me.

Chorus: 3x’s
Be mine; you’re all that I need.
You are the one, the one of my dreams.
Baby you’ve got my heart; you have my soul.
Will you be mine? And I’ll be yours.

New Novella Serials

Hello! I have begun writing two new free novella series one which is Urban Fantasy and one that is a Space Western. Urban Fantasy to me is a story where the city is as much of a character as any person in the story; for me this is a very important concept/definition because much of what is considered “contemporary urban fantasy” completely ignores two things in the genre. One being the city as a central point/character of the stfox-in-the-streetfgory (authors will have a setting that is not urban but rather rural which to me makes no sense) and two is the diversity which is present in all major cities in America and even Europe (e.g. New York City, Chicago, LA, Hollywood, London, Paris, etc.). Without both of these points present I do not consider these stories Urban Fiction.

This mistake comes along when writers are struggling to classify their stories. I love many different genres and I enjoy writing in genres that mix or cross, so I don’t get upset when novels that are more Paranormal Romance end up in the Urban Fantasy section, but as a writer who believes that reading is the way to improve ones own writing, it can be annoying when reading a specific genre, like Urban Fantasy only to discover that the book you thought you were reading to improve your skills in writing Urban Fantasy stories is actually of no particularsouthwest-design-1-23441281361702fVXrrular help in that specific genre. But that is all just my own opinion.

My Space Western novel came along as a new character began speaking to me. His name is Micquel and I couldn’t get him out of my head so I sat down and started writing. He explained to me that he was a decedent of scientists from Earth who traveled to Mars to help finish terraforming the planet before they lost contact with Earth and were forced to survive on Mars. The planet was survivable but the scientists on Mars lost contact with Earth before it could be industrialized which forced the surviving scientists, engineers, and others to “start from scratch” in terms ohintergrund-tapete-1453k035515V58f innovation and technology. Which brings in the Western aspect of the novella, much of the towns and cities on Mars are mining towns and other labor centered jobs, with few vehicles and minor technology. It’s like the Old West on Mars. It’s been fun writing both of these series and I have decided to post each part/chapter on my blog.

ce-space-scene-1 I will be “releasing” (posting) each chapter as a serialized season. Each season will consist of a certain amount of episodes and each episode will consist of a certain number of chapters. Be on the look out later in the week for the first episode and chapter of each story! I hope you all enjoy!

New Blog, New Adventures!!!

So after the success and fun I had writing my 365 Days of Creativity blog in 2015, I have decided to continue with my creative writing adventures with a new blog titled fiction. art. music. which will not be as busy as my last blog which I wrote a post every single day for an entire year but will be a blog that I will write on as I am inspired. Writing everyday was a lot of fun and a lot of work and now that I know I can do it, I am ready to challenge myself to create more. This blog will consist of short stories, poetry, photographs, film, videos, music, paintings, drawings, artwork and any other work that I feel inspired to share.

I will set some rules for myself, first one being that I must post at least twice per week. Also, I will not be writing on weekends, this will force me to keep a writing/creating schedule that can go along with my work schedule.

I hope you all enjoy!


I choose to be the change I want to see in the world.
