Poetry On Odyssey: One Drop At A Time

Poetry On Odyssey: One Drop At A Time

It falls, casing the world in, almost protective at first.

Eyes Closed, breath heavy

My mind flutters to the caves of my subconscious

Searching, scavenging for an idea.

Lost in the void, it holds onto the only light that it knows

sinking deeper and deeper.

I am awake.

My eyes wander curiously to the surrounding settings.

Dark, Gloomy, Cold.

A light blue lens illuminates and flows through the room

like water on the ocean.

My ears perk up

the drumming inside begins to pull me away

like a child excited to see the bright lights of the city.


I watch it hit the window,

falling in a motion that little understand.

Nothing else matters.

It engulfs the world around me

softly at first, like an unwanted embrace.

Then violently crashing down

suffocation and no vision of a way out.

A warm touch, a look.

Steam overflows the cup, the warm embrace of hot coffee kisses my lips.

I am pulled back into the reality

I am pulled back into you.

10 TV Shows That Can Replace 'The Office' On Netflix By 2021



Netflix has done it again. Created a mass panic. But this time the reason is not that "Friends" is being taken down or renewed for a giant price.

No, this time it is much worse.

Netflix has said in just TWO short years, it is likely NBC will be taking 'The Office' down. I know, it is unthinkable. What else are we suppose to rewatch a hundred times and quote endlessly? You cannot simply take Michael Scott off of Netflix. The best thing to ever happen was for Netflix to put "The Office", they made it popular again. And you @ me on that. But now they are removing it. I guess we will just have to watch other shows now.

Find other shows on Netflix to watch and to fill the void that NBC is creating for us.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
