A November Night

A Poem For Those Who Love Stars

A November Night

Smoke wafts across the blue,

Burning old, fading leaves gold,

Coaxing the violet out of the azure

To make a true dark sapphire.

The moon is but a bow,

Pulled taught in some invisible hand,

Aimed at nothing

The arrow flies

Into the empty pot of

The Big Dipper.

Maybe Aquarius can fill it with water,

Lift it in his hands and leave it to boil

Over Saturn's rings,

And Cassandra, with her lovely smile,

Can sing a spell over it

To make the stars align.

The dog will bark,

The warrior will howl,

And the bear will rear on her back legs

To better see the peering face

Staring up at her gleaming eyes.

Okay, so, background story! I was taking a little walk at night, something that I would not recommend anyone else do alone, and I couldn't help but look up at the stars every once in a while just to admire them. I'm from an urban setting, so I'm use to the night sky being washed out by the brightness of hundreds of street lamps, but after going to college in a more rural area, I've come to realize just what I was missing out on. This poem is basically just my reaction to the beauty of the night sky.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester.

It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
