While I do work as a writer full-time, I also experiment with the craft in my off hours. Below, you will find a piece of poetry I penned in June 2018. Enjoy or rip it apart.
All through my life, I’ve been a gamer. Through thick and thin, polygons and digital sprites have greeted me like an old friend and enveloped me in their glow.
I’ve saved worlds,
and faced fears,
all from a couch or chair.
As I age, it becomes harder to stay hooked, for my friends, controllers gave way to jobs and responsibility. I have those too, but try to hold on.
Can I do it?
I guess time will tell.
For now, all I can do is explore
and see what,
engages me again.
