dancing in my head
slamming into my skull
— words better
off on paper
but left for dead
by my battered psyche —
endless poetry
forgotten songs
hovering in shadow
waiting for the
light of day
— or will they
seek a
different author?

Author: Mari Adkins

Appalachian gothic fiction writer - my works reflect a love of literature flavored by the darkness and magic residing in these ancient mountains. In my spare time, I'm a Simmer, I tumbl, I journal, but I always have a very strange sense of humor. I have lived away from the mountains and lived deep in the mountains. I currently live in Central Kentucky with my lifepartner and his cat. The mountains, their culture, their superstitions, their particular magics, will always be in my blood.
