I like to write poetry to express my deepest thoughts, feelings, rants, or observations. I'll give the warning that a lot is fictionalized, even if written in first person. I only hope everyone can seek to see things from a different perspective. I also like to doodle, because it relaxes me and gives me something to do when I am bored in class. I also play basketball and run! These two activities are my outlets out of reality for a bit. I am double majoring in English and Psychology. I am also a vegetarian, so VEGGIES UNITE!


I'm not sure what I want to do with my life yet, but I'll figure it out eventually.

Hello all,

I apologize for the inactivity- I'm currently playing basketball and full-time student at college- but I am very active on my Instagram. I've been moving a lot of my work over there, as it gives me a way to merge visual art and poetry beautifully! I'd appreciate if you checked it out: @tangledtalespoetry. It'd mean the world if you could spread the word to others- I'd love to stay engaged with the dA community through that as well. Thanks for the love and support! Stay beautiful! :heart:

I'm very active on there! :D
you tell me you feel hopeless
as you talk with tired eyes-
the sky drips with black pen ink
poured on crystal cosmic lights

your eyes become black vacuums-
your words turn to somber sighs,
and I ask you: on the darkest of nights,
have you ever seen a starless sky?
you're never hopeless
I'm back! I'll still be more active on my insta: tangledtalespoetry !!

Please give it a follow! Repost my poems! Share my work! Spread the love, always! :heart:

However, should be back to posting weekly here as well! :D

I'm here to let you know, like the sky on the darkest night, there is always light. On the foggiest night- there is always light. There is no starless sky. If you can't seem to find hope, to find light, become the light. You are not too helpless. You are not unfixable. You are not doomed to live a life you don't enjoy. You are capable of being anything you want to be. You are the light, you are the light, you are the light. I only ask you to believe it. Don't forget to love your beautiful self. Message me if you ever need anything. 💌
For anyone struggling with anything: stay strong. 💪🏻 I'm sending sunshine your way.☀️

sometimes you want to spit out your teeth
because you’ve been grinding them so hard
under a diaphanous coating of crimson lipstick;
but you know the floors already freckled with confetti-
aluminum and glass and paper-
and the eburnean pearls tucked away in your mouth
are not able to be recycled

and sometimes it’s rivulets on the back of your neck,
droplets dripping like honey,
because the rooms heating up from people swarming like bees;
as your cheeks burgeon like crimson roses
your oversized sweater becomes your only source of safety-
maybe from the constant touch of others,
as they bump around like lost passengers at a train station,
or maybe protection from those seeking pollination

you see mouths painted
with the liquid limerence, the daunting dalliance,
of any boy or girl with a tongue;
as their veins pump with effervescent liquid,
and their hearts turn to corks and bottle caps,
you can’t help but wonder what it’s like
to dance with something other than your feet

and sometimes it’s a rock in the bottom of your stomach
that causes you to take a seat;
as you cough up pieces of pebbles,
brackish water fills the veined rivers of your hands-
you skip the pebbles in the sapphire sea of people
only to realize you’re the center of the ripple,
as all the intoxicated seem to want a word
with the only sober person in the room
the sun and the moon-
the most dedicated
of lovers

for they soon
must depart,
before kissing
each other
