Happy New Year and a very special thanks…

Everyone I want to thank for all the support you gave me for the entire year.  This year I have seen a growth in writing that resulted in more sells, exposure, focus and making connections with other writers and artist.  There have been changes, some good and some bad but it balances out to a productive medium which I can say, I have no regrets.  It is good to take the time in quiet moments to reflect and also create a plan of progression for the next coming months.  I don’t do any New Years Resolutions, I believe convictions of that nature are made throughout the year.  I remember my brother from another mother, F. Kenneth Taylor and I, back in 1999 made our last resolution and it was “Gotta do what we gotta do!”


I love my family! I love my mother with all my heart along with my little boo boo.  I love my brother, my sister in law, my nieces along with my aunts, uncles, cousins and everyone else!  I have love from my St. Louis peoples, Po Theory!  My DMV folks along with GA, Cali and Louisana (way too many to name, I have a huge extended family).

2019 will be a continuing of what has happened this year but the difference is more progression.  Expect to see my upcoming books:
Shadow Within A City “Ghost Squad’s Apocalypse” (co-written with F. Kenneth Taylor)
She is to be remembered
Untitled book of poetry

Also look for more On Location features as well as coverage of special events in the DMV area. Look for my podcast of Kaydee’s Thoughts for the Moment to return on January 7th at 6:30pm EST.  Again, thanks to everyone who has visited my site, the likes, the comments, everything!  Remember it is greatly appreciated because you took the time out of your day to share it with me!

We are young

self.JPGHer place is underneath the laundry she left to decompose last month.
Her house becomes a Havisham, a destination long forgotten.
The clocks stop, the walls and windows grow grayer.
The plants in her window slouch from their negligent mother.
The machine archived voicemails into ancient history.
The friends she never called back, their pictures on the walls
like portraits of dead saints, they gaze in eternal judgment.
This purgatory her mind built that she lives in day after day.   
She will never leave it behind, because how can you escape
a prison others deem as fictitious.

-Tina

Special Poetry Corner for Seasons Greetings (A view from the corner room)

 

closing in the distance

 

 

 

Good afternoon everyone!

 

Season Greetings to everyone.  Today, I felt like writing poetry, yep just out of the blue.  Sometimes a certain moment needs to be written down and I thought about this, especially with seeing a film wrestling with this topic.  How could you react, mentally, spiritually and physically to something that is out of your reach but yet in your presence?  Crazy talk, almost like a standard CW show, eh Vibe and Gipsy?

 

Any note, here is my newest creation, “A view from the corner room.”  If you have the time please share your thoughts on this, it will be quite helpful in more ways than you know.

 

 

A view from the corner room

 

 

I see you from afar,
yet so near.

I speak with no words
your presence stunts such growth

you smile,
I smile back
you react to a joke,
i laugh softly

I see you from afar,
yet close,
mentally in deep conversation

many years set us independently,
the reason for my silence,
in keeping with normalcy
of social proximity measures
to which I truly hate.

I see you from afar,
yet so near,
waiting the day,
or the hour,
for you to see me too.

 

-K.G. Bethlehem
