More Poetry! Yay! (This one's for NICK.)

Nick

Dark, soulless eyes
that do not express
anything.

Hard, careless face
that has no concern for
anyone.

Warm, calloused hands
that are not kind to
everyone.

They are kind to me.



So, I wrote this after reading the end of THE DEMON'S COVENANT by Sarah Rees Brennan, because that last scene with Nick and Mae made cry. This is probably Mae narrating, but in my dreams it's me ;)

And if you haven't read her stuff, go pick up THE DEMON'S LEXICON right now and read it. Immediately. It's a story about demons, magic, siblinghood, and epic family drama. I can't even. Just read it. (And then spam @sarahreesbrenna with tweets over the week that you take to read the trilogy. Because everything is more fun with tweets.)

Poetry Wednesday: Day 30

Well, okay, it's actually Thursday, I know. But this poem was incredibly relevant yesterday, and I WROTE it yesterday, so we're calling it Poetry Wednesday.



Day 30

Holy
crap
my
characters
are
stupid
and
my
plot
consists
of
mostly
kissing
and
their
love
isn't
even
believable
and
I
have
to
write
10,000
more
words
by
midnight.

Frak.




The good news? I TOTALLY WROTE 10,000 MORE WORDS BY MIDNIGHT! So, yeah, I won NaNoWriMo. It was awesome.
