Work-in-progress fantasy novel about two children of a Revolution and how they step up when the world's in peril, all that jazz.

My PostModern Romance reviews
a case study into what would happen in a relationship with a romantic guy and a post-modern girl. it's a song too, which explains the annoying rhyming.

Growing Up reviews
This is a song I wrote that's all about that one friend that you keep from cradle to tomb, and it's all about the times me and my buddy Chris spent together, especially over last summer. You might not get all the references that I make, but that's the poi

Midnight Song reviews
This is a poem I wrote while writing a research paper on Lord Byron. Maybe you can see the influence, maybe not. But yeah, I was just playing around a lot with rhyme scheme and such. Enjoy!

Green Wednesday reviews
This was written the day of callbacks for a high school musical. Any theater nerd will identify with the sheer idiocy of the competitiveness that pervades the area - especially when you're leaving for college and can't afford to lose friendships that way.

Memories at the Ocean reviews
I wrote this one directly after Spring - I was in Georgia, at a beach house, at the time. I prefer this one to Spring, but it doesn't really keep with the free verse, therefore Spring finishes up the trilogy, and this is just a little tribute to what I wi

Acrostic Portrait reviews
Wrote this one just before I did Spring. Got the idea from a Poe poem, wherein he encased a name of somebody. The idea makes me cringe now, but anywhoo, good luck finding the name! If you do, you can e-mail me at darkmarsz@hotmail.com and I'll congratulat

Spring reviews
The third part of the free verse Seasons Trilogy that I wrote. This is my least favorite of the three - in case you can't tell, I was a little sick of the free verse (and a little sick of the relationship, too). So that's my excuse as to why it sucks.

Snowstorms in Hell reviews
You might say it's the sequel to Falling, or, more correctly, the relationship expressed in Falling moving into the season of Winter. Wrote this from the audience, watching the tech rehearsal of the first half of a play I was in. The lights kept turning o

Falling reviews
Written 10/24/04, after I was inspired by a lovely girl in a situation much like that in the poem. I absolutely love this one, almost as much for the feeling it evokes in me as for the words themselves. See if it reminds you at all of leaves falling if yo

My most recent poem - written probably a month ago, originally titled Confrontation. Unorthodox rhyming and stanzas, but I had fun with it. Enjoy!

The most random story I've ever written. Not much point to it - it was done at 3 in the morning while under the influence of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata being played through surround sound speakers.

A Dozen Strands of Winter reviews
This is more of a psychological horror story. Sad as hell, too. I just realized that I tend to bring religion into things a lot - even a story like this.

My own take on the ending to Nosferatu and the Dracula story in general. Also my first delve into the horror genre as well as the first-person POV of a girl (That was interesting to say the least). Enjoy!

Contemplation reviews
The first short story I ever wrote, after a succession of poetry. As such, it is quite poetic in nature and has very little, if any, plot. I think this falls under the category of 'Descriptive Prose.' Maybe.

Very pensive free verse piece. Can't remember who it was about though... that's kinda weird. In fact, I don't actually remember writing this poem. For some reason, I get a big kick out of that. It's my writing and my opinions, obviously, I just can't reme

Whee! Finally a poem that's not totally cliched and sickeningly romantic! lol... lotsa big words though. Oh well. Rhyming seems a bit forced at times, but I guess that's what I was goin for.
