Author has written 8 stories for Biography, Romance, and Life.

I can also be found under the penname emptyword. This is an old account of unpolished, drabble-ish writing attempts, which will mostly consist of poetry, since I can't seem to lay that particular hobby aside, regardless of an utter lack of talent. A huge THANK YOU to any and all who have ever taken the time to read and/or leave a review.


HIGHLIGHTS OF THIS SITE: POETS (though I am by no means a proper judge):
Chochang913- This young writer focuses on the dark sides of life with stunning descriptions and intricate, thought-provoking prose. I count myself lucky to have come across her pieces.
content with rhyme- This is a poet with the most beautiful and inspirational messages to share. All of her pieces have been crafted with thought and emotion, presenting an extraordinary read.
Deana Bell- Her songs are incredible, washed with emotion and deeply moving. Her faith in Christ is unshakable, only one of the many things I admire about her. She has taken down her songs for publication.
Getuie- Unique and genuine poetry. Her willingness to give up everything for Christ and her steadfast faith in Him is encouraging.
God's Warrior- A dedicated Christian who candidly shares her experiences in her writing and poetry. She is unafraid to write about and reflect upon her struggles in Christ and for Christ, and even her works that don't focus on herself reveal her own faith. Again, very inspirational.
Hadrian's Wall - Wow. Simply stunning. The lines coming out of this poet's pen explode with vivid imagery and potent emotion. Not only will you feel, you will burn.
Keep it 100- This poet's work is one of the best you'll find here. Her words are powerful and to the point. Read "Power of One" and you'll see what I mean. She, too, is a proud follower of Christ. Sadly, this beautiful poet is no longer posting on this site.
InSpiteOf- A talented poet with heaps of experience to share. Witty and talented. I'm often left laughing.
Matthew James Current - A writer with the most fascinating, thought-provoking poems to share, always powerfully written, holding nothing back, even emotionally draining at times. Amazing grasp of language.
Wren Craven - This poet takes the simplest of concepts or daily concerns and twists it into gorgeous poetry. Her rhythm is impeccable, making all her poems a treat to read aloud - like chocolate melting across the tongue.


"Just as I am, without one plea,
But that Thy blood was shed for me,
And that Thou bid'st me come to Thee,
O Lamb of God, I come! I come!

Just as I am, and waiting not
To rid my soul of one dark blot;
To Thee whose blood can cleanse each spot,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come!

Just as I am, though tossed about
With many a conflict, many a doubt;
Fightings within, and fears without,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come!

Just as I am, poor, wretched, blind;
Sight, riches, healing of the mind;
Yes, all I need, in Thee to find,
O Lamb of God,I come, I come!

Just as I am, Thou wilt receive,
Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve;
Because Thy promise I believe,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come!

Just as I am, Thy love unknown
Has broken every barrier down;
Now, to be Thine, yea, Thine alone,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come!"

-JAIA.

A piece dedicated to a close friend of mine, who has been very badly hurt by someone. This piece is directed towards the person who hurt my friend. It is a work wrought in flames, smoke, shadow, and pain. I hope you all like it.
