Edie's Song

(It's been a while since I posted on here! It's good to be back)

Edie Sedgwick was a socialite who lived in New York City in the 1960's. She has for the most part faded into obscurity, but was very prolific in her lifetime and was known for her striking appearence, eloquent, intense monologues and most famously for her involvement with Andy Warhol and his Factory. Unfortunately her story is a tragic one, and after a lifetime of battles with mental and physical health she died very young. This is my tribute to her.

(Verse)
Were you raised on memories of things that you could never be?
And could you be picked out of a crowd?
Were you told there was no place for a troubled soul with an angel's face
And that you'd fade away without a sound?
(pre-chorus)
But they knew you so well at the Chelsea Hotel
Where you sent them to heaven and gave them all hell
I set out on a pilgrimage, painted in your image

In Case You Missed It...Here's Oh Snap!


Hi everyone! Last Saturday was Oh Snap! YWP's Online Open Mic, hosted by LadyMidnight and I. I recorded the entire open mic so you can listen and watch everyone read if you missed it, or if you read and want to watch your performance. It was so nice to hear everyone read! Thank you to all the people who shared their poems (and a really cool short story from laurenm!). 
If you're interested in being in an open mic, please let me know and I'll coordinate another one. Should Oh Snap! be a series?!
I hope you all are well and having a good Wednesday!

You helped me through the dark times told me it was ok i need you. you pushed me to be my best I need you. And now that you are gone I cant see so turn the light on I need you." so that was I need you a song written by me

My dogs eyes

when I close my eyes sometimes I wonder what its like for my dog. I pretend I am my dog and this story is about what I do when I pretend in a dream. I am now my dog Mylo. A ten year old girl walks by, she is tall, nice, and fun to play with. But sometimes she is the opposite, she pulls out this vibrating plastic thing, she calls it a masseur I think. anyway that thing gives me a chill down my spine. Also when I eat her poptart she yells at me and pulls out a pink thing filled with water and sprays me with it. Plus they lock me in the kitchen with another old dog. her name is Sophie I think, but she is MEAN, I walk over to my bed, she barks, and growls at me. And humans are confusing, they normally let me up on the couch, but seance they said they were whats it called... Moving?.. anyway any time I put a paw on the cushine the yell at me say get down and stuff.
