In The Night.

I write
by candlelight
in the dark gloom
of Night
closing in at my sides.
He embraces me,
comforts me--
runs long fingers
through my hair
down my shoulders
touching my spine
as I write
to the comfort
of long, dark Night.

Script Frenzy starts in April. I wonder if I should try it this year. It's essentially the same thing as NaNoWriMo, just in script format. 30 days, 100 pages is how they describe it. I guess we'll see how busy it gets after spring break! :)


  1. NaPoWriMo starts in April too. I've signed up even though I know I can't possibly write a poem every day - they just don't come that easy for me. But, I figure I'll do the best I can and it's a good way to meet other poets. Good luck with your frenzy!

  2. Nice work - the atmosphere is really strong in this one JB.

  3. I like this one. You can feel it. Very cool.
