18 August 2012 - Advice of the Gods
The heart doth surely bleed and the soul shall weep it’s lonely death. Life is a tear in the eyes of the universe. If only one could see. Let open your mind. Your heart shall never die.
16 February 2011 - Twitter: How it helps me as a writer and poet
All those micro-poems, lines of Haiku, creative thoughts and “Twitter Poems” have helped me learn how to write better. Often, those little bursts of creativity are seeds for larger and more complex ideas that grow into full poems. One of those little bursts on Twitter actually evolved into a full screenplay that I am writing. And the coolest thing is not only the instant feedback, but the reminder is always there in your timeline so you can ignite that larger idea on paper, in a blog and hopefully as a published work later on. They are like little notes to myself sometimes
2 January 2011 - Where Demons Dwell
Mountains rise in wakes of troubled thoughts Mere ripples turned swells of rolling rage Stirred torrents of doubt and question Blanket waters once still with unstayed ferocity Anger, fear, temptation and lust drown reason As my mind wanders in places where demons dwell
9 January 2009 - Shadows Fade
I look in the mirror. Shadows fading in a new light. I look in to my heart. Warmth and compassion resonate in every beat. I look in to my soul. Life and fulfillment anchoring foundations. I look at the world. All is new and everything is possible. I look at love. Lost for a time, [...]

5 August 2008 - Flying High
by Nichole Shannon Where a heart was once empty and torn, an other fills the void and heals the wounds. A newly reborn soul now filled by the warmth flies free in the clouds. No boundaries, no limits, no confines to contain it. Its wings spread wide and catch the rising warmth. The heart drifts [...]
28 July 2008 - Nikki’s Dream
Please god let this be real… she whispers softly. Her pillows piled high against her, she softly cuddles with them. She could only think of her lover, imagining they were together. Two lost souls reaching out to each other. She embraces the pillows harder. Her soft flesh pressing into the fabric. Longing for warmth and [...]
13 April 2008 - What Demons are These?
What Demons are these lurking in my head. Waiting in the shadows, they stalk me each night. By day they sleep, distant memories of the past. At night they awaken feasting on my fears. The present is fleeting but the past is always there. What empty canvas that lays before me. Painted in blood, painted [...]
13 March 2008 - What I Seek.
What I seek, Is a home for my soul, A place to rest my weary mind, Love to warm my heart, And someone to share it all with. What I seek, Is understanding and compassion, A place of acceptance where I may thrive, Deep Friendships to fill my life, And laughter to ease the pain. [...]
