Jesus is King

  • Life is busy. Life is changing. Life is good.

  • Like a helpless dog I sit at your ankles
    And wait for you to pay me any attention
    I notice the scarlet being drained
    From the rhododendrons as Autumn nears
    I notice each thorn on the roses that wait
    For blood. I wonder if you notice like I do
    If you notice the change in my stride
    Or the tears I shed to the turbulent sea
    If not me, then what occupies that focus
    For you are living a life with me in the margins
    But you are the muse of my every thought
    Of my very being. The reason I write these poems
    I must be a fool to you, for wishing your heart
    Belonged to only me: young and helpless
    ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ ‎ —Inspired from Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier

  • I don't know what I'd do with myself if I ever lost my passion for poetry forever.

  • Finals are finished which means Attributes of The Divine is completed! Thank you for the patience and I hope some of you are still interested in reading/finishing the thread, even though NaPo is over.

    College is over (well, graduation on Saturday) and even though I am doing the Masters program online, it's a really weird feeling to be "done" with school, at least the in-person aspect of it. My bachelor's degree took 5 years to get, and it's been such a crazy time. Idk I'm growing up and I love it but it makes me sad. Super bittersweet, probably will write a poem about it.

    EllieMae Ahh congrats!! That is amazing!!!

  • At latest, I'll finish my NaPo thread by May 10. I have a huge paper due Thursday, which I will be working at non-stop for the next few days, followed by finals, which I only have two of. I'll have a few free days between my last final and graduation so I can write and catch up. Really unfortunate that my personal NaPo plans did not meet my expectations, but how could I be disappointed when I am writing about the greatest thing ever in my thread?
    I also haven't had the time to read everyones NaPo threads so I will definitely try to do that as well, I know I am missing out on some wonderful work!

    RavenAkuma Just don't push yourself, Fleur, you're doing great so far! ^^

  • As a brunette… I find it offensive that all my favorite characters are blondes lol

  • Days 16-20 are posted now ♡ Thank you for the patience!
    Attributes of the Divine

    *note: due to images malfunctioning (on my side at least) some poems will not keep the same structure as the original in my document, as I decided to copy and paste them directly as text to make it more accessible.

  • Slightly altered my wall but not really. I’ve been able to write some poems the past few days, some for my NaPo theme, some not. But then I realized my 8-10 page paper is due a week from tomorrow. So I will definitely not be able to finish all 30 poems of NaPo by the end of April. I will finish my thread, it’s really important to me that I do. I’ll post them when I can, I’ve been catching up out of order so I’m waiting. I’m sorry!! This month has been crazy, I hope everyone else is having a wonderful NaPo and honestly a wonderful spring as well! <3

  • Hey y'all! So I know I said I will update my NaPo thread every 10 days but I decided to upload 11-15 today. Attributes of the Divine

    I did this because I am falling behind on NaPo. I'm in the last few weeks of the semester, so school work + my job is taking up a lot of my time. I am determined to complete NaPo, it's just a matter of when I can sit down and write.

    - Fleur <3
