  • Listening to: the restlessness of two years gone by
  • Reading: Cat's Eye - Margaret Atwood
  • Watching: the hearts over the emoticon
  • Playing: with how to say these things
  • Drinking: a crystal glass of water
What can I say? I've been away for a long time. But I have not stopped writing poetry. Rather, I've been trying to live out my poetry in real life.

The changes in my absence have been extraordinary... There are now skins for journal entries, twitter icons for deviations...

Haha.

But really, things have changed. The last summer I was writing here was spent slaving away in New York, interning in the fashion industry and dreaming of a day when I could breathe more easily. Now I've left the fashion industry forever, left the art school of my old dreams, and am diving full-force into a new digitally-driven revolution.

The other day, I slowed down for a moment, and asked myself:

What would my life have looked like without the Internet?

And I remembered this place.

Without this community, the amazing support of all of you, the countless comments and favorites, the DD's, and most poignantly- a single gallery by onthemetro that changed my 14-year-old life forever... I would never have been a poet.

Not like this.

And so I thank you. I posted a last poem, today, dedicated to you.

Keep writing & devouring poetry, and may it light your way as it did mine.

I'm so glad to see you back (if momentarily) and get my fingers on a new poem from you! I've been wondering lately where you've been and if you've been okay- I'm glad to hear you're doing well and will be camping on your website for new writing!

Oh my goodness oh my goodness. How I did miss you! And you come back to say you're going, just as I came back to say I'd stay.

Guess I'll just have to eat up your new website like croissants.
