God Is Not In Your Phone

Procrastination is one of my specialties. I am very good at it. It is something I do often. Day after day, I try to fight it, but it always comes back to me. Plans and lists fall by the wayside. I lose days and hours, every intention falls leisurely from my mind. My eyes are…

As Far As I Could Get

As Far As I Could Get by Florence + The Machine In the celestial vaults, I drew a bedraggled breath. Because I am unloved, I went as far as I could get. In the cedars like sparks, wasting my goddamn time. Past the museum of death and the madman yelling answers. I sail on new…

From You the Flowers Grow

Whether you’re an artist, a writer, or creative mind, it can be difficult at times to find illumination in a world overflowing with darkness.

I Like People Who’ve Seen Some Darkness

I don’t know why, but Florence Welch has the uncanny ability to put whichever emotions I’m feeling into flawless words or epic songs. She’s written something for every appropriate occasion. This poem from Useless Magic makes me think of myself and my writing. I tend to lean toward the strange and supernatural in my stories,…

Now Playing: Florence + The Machine – “What Kind of Man”

There isn’t much more I can say about this song that hasn’t already been said. In fact, I think I’ve pretty much said it all. I have come to a realization, though. You’ll think it overly simple, but I don’t think I’ve ever said it out lout before. So, here it goes: This is one…

In the Woods

Flower crowns and flowy gowns. Enchanted forests where witches prowl and growl. Birds trapped in cages and love songs sung from broken rib-cages. This is where I choose to spend my time, with a songstress made of heartbreak and rhyme. Honestly, did you really think I could go this long without talking about Florence Welch?…
