*announcement* hello lovelies xx hope you enjoyed my first attempt at an art poem (don't expect a lot of those bc omg this one took sooo long, but i had a lot of fun, so maybe for my shorter poems??) *also, i am hoping to post a poem i wrote a while ago, but i need help from y'all

the poem's idea was inspired by short poem/quote on commaful and i cannot find it anywhere, but i don't want to post it w/o giving credit where it is due. the original work was about how "isn't love giving someone a gun and placing your life in front of them?" something along those lines, so please either help me find the original author/title, or if that is your work, comment that w/ the title

*tysm for your help, and i will post that poem as soon as the original author/title is found *reminder: you can join my taglist at any time, just comment and i'll add you *update on book: i have officially printed the first manuscript and i am editing mistakes. as for the second one, i am still compiling and placing poems in order.

OMG I ALMOST FORGOT!!! SOMEBODY MADE A LIST OF THEIR FAVORITE INTERNET POETRY (FROM COMMAFUL) N I WAS ON THERE ALONG W SO MANY OTHER LOVELY POETS N UGHHH I'VE NEVER FELT SO PROUD IN MY LIFE SO TY (I WILL LINK IT IN THE COMMENTS AND TAG ANYONE WHO WAS ON THE LIST)

ALSOOOOOO i don't know if any of you are on powerpoetry but they picked me as one of their top fifty emerging poets of 2018 and i just thought i would let y'all know ilysm n i hope you have a great frickin day xx much love xx
