Advice

Post, post, post some more

When faced with the decision to blog or not, I often opt to not, simply because I whine myself out of it. I tell myself, no one will read your posts anyway, and they kinda suck, and… etc. etc. Then, I have to remind myself that Rome wasn’t built in a day, and if I don’t post, people won’t find or follow. So maybe I should post more often… just a thought.

Poems

Flip-Flop Phantom

It is silent, all is quiet in the dark

I can hear him coming down the hall; there is his trademark

Flip, flop, scurt, squeak

Flip-flop phantom

 

I am frightened, all is still

I can feel his presence in the room; bring shudders down my spine he will

Flip, flop, scurt, squeak

Flip-flop phantom

 

The sound stops, I feel a stare on me

I am chilled to the bone; whoever’s there my eyes cannot see

Flip, flop, scurt, squeak

Flip-flop phantom

 

Worried for my own security, wondering who I will find

I switch on the light; upon him will brightness finally shine

Flip, flop, scurt, squeak

Flip flop phantom

 

No longer is there fear, silence is calm

I am embarrassed; sweat is wiped from my palms

Flip, flop, scurt, squeak

Flip-flop phantom
