Author has written 80 stories for Fantasy, Humor, Love, Life, Supernatural, General, Religion, Nature, Friendship, Horror, General, War, School, Politics, and Work.
All stories belong to me, Kayla Giussi. Steal them, and you won't live long enough to regret it, rest assured.

I love angst and sometimes it gets graphic. Fair warning.
No review--not even flames!--are bad. I don't care what you say, just say it! Review!

For the curious, the name "Sakura no Miko" means "priestess of the cherry blossoms." Cherry blossoms represent the beauty of a short burst of life before death, as do most of my poems. Miko, or Shinto priestesses, have long been associated with mysticism, feminity, and tradition. In other words, I am a female. Simple, ne?

I'm a big poetry writer, with an occasional short original story thrown in. Maybe I'll even finish my long one some day, ne?
