Poetry On The Odyssey: Emptiness

Poetry On The Odyssey: Emptiness

A poem dedicated to my absent father.


He’s supposed to be your biggest hero

Your biggest supporter

And the one man who would never let you down

He’s supposed to catch your tears from falling and be there for you in every way

And that’s the crippling and earth shattering thing

In my case, he’s not

He’s one of my biggest let down’s

He’s made me cry a river of tears and was absent for the majority of my life

That’s what makes it so hard to get out of bed some mornings

He’s one of my creators, yet he has destroyed me like no other

Fire burns down my throat as I skeptically say “I love you too” as we greet each other

Obliviously ignoring clear signs that nothing will ever change

He’ll never fill the emptiness that resides within me

He’ll never say that he’s proud of me, or that I look beautiful with no makeup on

Which is such a damn shame…

That daddy is always supposed to make everything better

But for me, he makes everything worse.

Dreading This Day All About Love

Valentines day blues


I have never enjoyed Valentine's Day.

Even if when I was in a relationship it was just an awkward day of "hey I love you, give me gifts and lets make out." But this year, I am just not feeling this thing at all. Since the relationship ended last June I have just been dreading the time when February came, because you know that on the 14th you are going to see all these love post and all us singles are like "welp this is just not my day.", and honestly you feel defeated. I personally asked other singles friends (like the three I have) if they wanted to come and watch Netflix with me and dread the day, but sadly they either had school or work. So here is my plan of getting though this day of love:


Yes Netflix how else am I supposed to get through this day? Usually I have Greys Anatomy playing all the time but that has love in it, and I am not in the mood for that. My plan is to watch all the crime shows I can because watching TV crime series or documentary about serial killers just seems perfect for the 14th.



Yes sleeping. I don't have anywhere I need to be why not catch up on some zzz's


Yes I am going to eat my feelings with chocolate because why not? if I could I would get a giant slice of cake and live off that on the 14th but sadly I am stuck with the normal Heresy's chocolate and Reeses which will do their job.


me :)

This is my wonderful cat Kimber and she will be my partner in crime on the 14th. She will sleep, snuggle, cuddle, all day with me because I need that moral support of my fluffy cat.



If I am able to fit reading a book into my schedule of everything listed above then reading will go into that open spot. I always loved reading but with school it is hard to find the time to read for enjoyment. so this day will be the perfect day.

This is my plan for the 14th of February and hopefully this will help me get though this dreadful day. And if you are also single try this out :)
