they belong to you and no one else

Do Not Miss this romantic love poem from Andrew – “THEY BELONG TO YOU AND NO ONE ELSE”

The Lonely Author


they belong to you and no one else


Jammed my jellied kisses into mason jars
Stacked them all neatly upon a shelf
Stored away all of our antique memories
they belong to you and no one else

Folded all of my unused embroidered hugs
Finding chores for my lonesome self
Bubble wrapped eternal promises unkept
they belong to you and no one else

Fine pressed caresses are hanging off a rack
Staying busy since you left me by myself
Polished all of the shiny vows meant for only us
they belong to you and no one else


Apologies for this bad poetry, Lonely Author can’t find his mojo.

I may not be Everyone’s Cup of Tea, but I am Someone’s Double Vodka in TBT

Rantings Of A Third Kind

Posted in Throwback Thursday

“If you don’t like me, fine. It’s not my job to make you happy”


I may not be Everyone’s Cup of Tea, but I am Someone’s Double Vodka

You dont have to like me
Or be my friend
I am not looking for a life partner
Just someone to understand

If you expect to mend
And change my existence
I’d rather you just pretend
Then try to fix it

Is buying
What I am

I may not be
Your cup of tea
But surely some one
Prefers me
As their double vodka

Why Pinterest May Be The Greatest Website For Writers: Part 2

Another Day in the Life of a Writer

A couple days ago, I posted an article on how the social media site Pinterest is extremely useful for writers and the visualization of characters, settings, clothing, etc. As a follow-up, I want to now get into the ways Pinterest can assist writers in a more general fashion. What do I mean by this? Things like writing prompts, suggestions, guidelines… you know, all that jazz.

Like many other writers out there, I’ve suffered from writer’s block. Well, one of the more recent ways I’ve discovered to help out with this issue is using Pinterest. Just simply search “Writing prompts” and you’ll receive hundreds of ideas to get you unstuck from whatever writing dilemma you’re currently facing. Sometimes it may be something entirely unrelated to what it is you’re working on – and that’s totally okay. Taking a break from your current project is sometimes exactly what you need to rejuvenate…

Why Pinterest May Be The Greatest Website For Writers: Part 1

Another Day in the Life of a Writer

There are countless social media sites out on the internet, each of them offering us different means to share our thoughts and life with other people. For authors, social media can help us out in many different ways. Book promotion, connecting with fans, networking with other authors… and that’s just to name a few.

A little while ago I was introduced to a site called Pinterest by a fellow author and let me tell you, I will be forever grateful to her for it. In this post, along with another one I shall be putting up in a couple days, I hope to give you a few reasons why I believe Pinterest is so useful for authors. Right now, I’m going to focus on the private side of Pinterest, and what it can do for you and your specific writing.

Character depictions, settings, random quotes that mesh with your story……

‘Two out of three ain’t bad’

Come and enjoy John’s – TWO OUTTA THREE AIN’T BAD!


Two out of three ain’t bad

I told her. I will be your Hemingway and you can be my Agnes . You will be my beloved and untold story. I have found you after un-rudely and useless war I volunteered to be in. You will be my safe place to rest. You will show me calm and peace in the war of confusion and wrong places.

You soft brown eyes caressed me with the gentleness of kindness and pity. You did not promise tomorrow. You told me we have only today. Love isn’t for us. I belong to another. We will have our Paris and we will separate my love.

I knew you did not belong to me. You were just a lover that made me feel so damn alive. I saw the want to stay and leave in your gentle eyes. I brought you near and I whispered.

Come see why Dorinda is called “The Night Owl”

Night Owl Poetry - Dorinda Duclos

It’s 3AM and I’m still awake

I walk to the window and pull back the drape

And stare at a moonless starlit sky

And wonder aloud, why is it I

Cannot find the sleep I so desperately crave

These thoughts overtake me, to a point where I cave

And slink back to my desk like a cat on the prowl

After all, it is why I am called the Night Owl

Come feel the panic of “NIGHTMARE”

A Tangle of Weeds

Premature, the night woke up on me
screaming your name
I looked out into the oblivion
I tried to shift the blame
on the birthing sun I could only imagine
laboring to usher in the new day
Caught in the axis of dark light
the sleep-deprived mind gets down on its knees for calm to stay

Probably the worst after effect of a break up, are the nightmares I get that leave me feeling panicky. I barely get enough sleep and it doesn’t help to wake up terrified and anxious.
