I am Heart of Lead. A student of many, teacher of few. I am a storyteller and artist who builds on more imagination than experience. I am most inspired by Kipling's poem "If" and especially the quote, "Meet with Truimph and Disaster and treat those two imposters just the same." I have no idea where I'm going but you're welcome to join me on this journey.


Cold and stormy are her eyes, Light is her darting tongue. And I break when she cries, Forever old, forever young. She dances like a grey fairy, Void of colour, full of light. My heart becomes the grave to bury A silver knife hidden from sight. She flits and flies and steals A kiss from the lips of all, Prances away in heavy heels She is my tragic downfall.

From poet's heads
to seeing eye
hard to believe
we so contrive
We write despite
a reason why
the poem part truth
and part a lie.

Socks that we wash
leave us in doubt
when two go in
only one comes out.

Thank you for reading "Rumors of my Demise".
just a fun poem but with a grain of truth.
I am sorry I had to burden you with it.
Take a pill and get on with your life.

Thank you so much, Mae! Yes it's an extraordinary poem and the rhyming pattern I tend to follow the most. I actually have that quote tattooed on my shoulder, I kid you not.
