Author has written 22 stories for Love, Life, Humor, Supernatural, War, Religion, General, Friendship, Work, School, and Nature.

I am primarily a poet, as you can see by scrolling down. The few stories I post are very short. My writing style is whimsical and abstract. I favor the genres Romance and Angst. My poems are somewhat inspired by my daily life, except heavily dramatized.

Opal by Lily Lotas reviews
Opal thought it would just be a normal day, other than the fact that it was the one-year anniversary since her grandmother's passing. She never expected to fall into a vortex and end up in some strange fantasy world with talking cats and masked strangers trying to kill her, or maybe save her? All she knows is that she needs to get back home—and what's this about her grandmother?

We Normal Ones
It was a journey for me to accept that I deserved to seek therapy despite how well I "pass for normal" in our society. If you are on that journey yourself, I hope you'll read this short poem and know that you're not alone in feeling this way.

This is a collection of six-word stories, in the spirit of six-word memoirs. The trick to enjoying these is to imagine your own plots. Six-word memoirs are an acquired taste, so you might not like this style of writing.

Humanity reviews
What does it really mean to be human? Is it being humane? To the dying world around us, we are nothing more than a parasite, rapidly killing off other species one dozen at a time. Should you really be proud of being part of the human race?

Two poems in my usual style of call-and-response. The first poem, Free, is from a certain POV. The second poem, Strong, is from another POV. This is a story of overprotective love going too far.
