Hey there, I'm Jordyn and I suck at introductions. Writing is something I'm very passionate about and I am trying to pursue it. I use it to speak when I verbally can't find the words. To me it's the greatest medication aside from waffles. P.S. Excuse my grammar, it's work in the process.


Tonight she longed for someone's arms to wrap around her and pull her from the darkness. Nobody was there except the shadows running wild in her mind. Her heart ached. She couldn't shake off the lonely and began to wrestle lonely to the floor. Her broken pieces spilled out shattering all over. The sharp edges of her brokenness cut deep into her soul letting all emotions bleed out. Now she lays almost lays lifeless over the cold tiles. Tears flood her lungs. She gasps for air. She chokes on the pain she feels Only a breath is left between her teeth. Mustering up what strength she had left she used her last breath to whisper your name. Even through her angry whisper her voice still kind and dainty. Silence. Here she lays as nothing but a lonely pile of flesh and bones held to the tiled floor. Though she is gone and silence fills the air, if you listen close you can hear her soul screaming out your name.

Hi, Jordyn. Welcome to WOL. Very arresting 'title', photo and bio, all of them full of dramatic imagination. Some day, writing poetry may actually be a joy, as well as a 'medication'. But, maybe, as 'medication', it already IS a joy. Interesting thought, actually.

Good touch with 'aside from waffles'. All is not so bleak that a sense of humour is stifled! Besides, I totally agree. Mine is salted peanuts, chocolate pieces and raisins - in one chompy mouthful - the taste coming through individually and in good company!

I looked you up after you “liked” one of mine. Glad I did. I think we sit at opposite ends of the poetry spectrum (if poetry arranges itself like that!) But really enjoyed your stuff. Keep posting.

A very dramatic sample Jordyn.
It screams love, passion and, total possession of another.
Terrific....but also frightening !
