Been Gone Awhile

Hello to whoever reads this blog,


I’ve been missing for some time due to family and school as well as a bit of writer burnout. I’ve spent my year studying poetry, the short story, as well as the proper use of grammar and punctuation. I hope the effort show’s in my work. As such and due to my time missing, I’ve composed a set of poetry I’ll release over time. Please feel free to comment and editorialize.


5 Minutes for a Day

By J.D. Mullenary I


Flick and switch, Happy abodes

Caverns coursing in liquid gold

Stern and mad, the looks dial in

They judge and can’t share my sin

My choice, their choice, don’t stay around

The Pariah’s life keeps ticking down

It soothes, it kills, lungs filling up

All this joy from a couple bucks

Crave sings and joy abounds

Pleasure battles the liquid sounds

Ecstasy sets me free

Oh doc, what do you say to me

Patch it, chew it, nothing works

Few people survive this curse

Money cries and fades away

Addiction scratches another day

Brandly genetic they all say

The clouds create a nice bouquet

The sun drives my worries away

My shame and guilt are here to stay
