Angst

{ e x t e n d e d • s u m m a r y }

A poetry book filled with my heart’s most painful laments.

{ e p i g r a p h }

“The prizefight pits me against myself; the world is just collateral damage.”

{ d e d i c a t i o n }

To myself, for not even I understand the emotions I pour out on these pages.

{ a c k n o w l e d g m e n t s }

God, for giving me a heart that feels too much. And everyone I know, for hurting me in ways that leave me empty and wanting. I know none of you really meant it. And that’s okay, because that’s what people do. They hurt others, and they themselves hurt, and there’s nothing you can really do to stop that in a fallen world such as ours.

{ p r e f a c e }

I honestly have no idea why I’m posting this because a) my poetry is not very good and b) this poetry book specifically is for when the void in my heart hurts the most and I can’t turn to anyone or anything to express it. This will not be updated on a regular basis. You probably don’t even want that because it’s not very good poetry. But even though it isn’t good, it is from my heart. Maybe I could go so far to say that it is my heart. To whoever is reading this, don’t worry about being gentle. It’s already broken.

When all else fails, words find a way. (An anthology of drabbles centered around relating relationships to the English language.)

Our Grammatical Error: We started in the middle of the page in my book; how did we end in yours?

The Patterns in Our Pitfalls: I will always remember this about us.

dear infinity,if only i had known that you never were.

she is perfect, and he thinks it’s only fair that he should tell her so in a form of communication that would last as long as her name implied. he wants to let her know that she is his universe, and he is but a small star within it. he doesn’t realize how true that actually is.

n. a conversation in which everyone is talking but nobody is listening, simply overlaying disconnected words like a game of Scrabble, with each player borrowing bits of other anecdotes as a way to increase their own score, until we all run out of things to say.​{The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows}

War
Tragedy

The prince does not ask for his crown. The damsel does not need to be rescued. The king does not rule from his throne. The princess does not want a prince charming. The pirate does not enjoy his plunder. The assassin does not kill out of bloodlust.

Seek neither a crown nor a war, for Captain Kilyan knows not what he is in for.

{ a Legend of Luven // the Corrupt Crown Chronicles, book one }

{ r e m a r k s }

Yes, this story will eventually return, hopefully by the end of 2019. However, it is not the same as it was before. I have changed names and certain details because I want this story to be as strong as I possibly can make it. If you've read an earlier version, I hope you think this one improves upon the last greatly. If you're new to this story, welcome. I hope I do not disappoint.
