I am 24 year old female from Miami, Fl. I enjoy swimming, cooking, golfing, and bowling. I write free verse, lyrical poems and haikus . I began writing at age 12 as a coping mechanism to deal with being too shy at the time. Poetry currently still is a form of therapy I use now when I am going through (my bipolar) a manic or depressive episode.


"MY VOICE DIED" I seem to have lost my crayons and pencils! The detective looked at me strange I continued speaking rapidly My creativity - I cannot find it anywhere I fell to my knees begging her to help I recall where I last saw them I said hastily Middle school when I was fourteen They were replaced with highlighters and pens! The annoyed detective sat me down in her office It was cold, dreary and poorly lit, too Take these crayons and this notebook Go home and work on your craft. I entered my apartment door and opened the blinds Began drawing freehand and even taking photos? Hanging it up on the walls for later inspiration Then I finally picked up my pencil apprehensively My mind hesitated What I write could be disastrous Containing no rhythm or flow? In this moment I realized long ago my voice died Hours passed - I began sifting through old boxes I found my stack of stories and poems All dusty and torn up - what a scene! I called the detective swiftly I am so distraught I said to her I cannot fathom this dilemma All these years it was right in front of me! My fear of failure murdered my creativity!
