Willow (22 Poems)

I write YA Dystopia/Sci-Fi, Paranormal Fantasy, YA/NA Apocalyptic. I live in SC with my son and daughter and two manic cats. Fiction and poetry are my passions. I like to make stuff up. My third book will be published Summer 2015. The Vita BioGen Legacy: Gods 1st 3 chapters: http://willowarenner.com/3chapters/ I love writing and poetry. I write everyday. It nurtures my soul. It keeps me sane. The world can be cold and lonely, but words can create beauty.

Forged in the Stars

We Are…
Forged in the stars, the molten core.
Flames dance, consume, roar.
Desires swirl, burn, soar.

Condemned to burn, the conflagration consumes.
Glittering sparks, the dying embers glow.
Swirling ash on howling winds.
Scattered lost. To be seen no more.

Alone, I walk.
Is this my fate?
At night, he comes to me.
He holds out his hand.
“How long must I wait?”
~The Shepherd of the Dead

The Shaming of Eve

One bite of the apple…
Banished. Shamed. Blamed.
2nd class citizens to this day.
Woman: earthy, sensual, powerful, strong, equal!
Arise, woman. Arise.

Tempus Fugit

Time unravels quickly around me.
Sand sifting through grasping fingers.
I reach for a moment, but it slips away.
How did I get here?
