About EpicEllie


I am a writer. I am known to be orphic. The depths of my creative mind have no bounds. The complexities of my dreams and reality are often blurred. I am imperfectly perfect. I am a complex contradiction.

I stare into the reflection of my eyes-- Light is growing dimmer… Every passing hour I feel myself Gravitating towards numbness.   Pain rushing through my veins… I bleed the sorrow… I feel euphoric…   Numbness entangles itself around me. Give me your pain-- I will bear your heavy burden.   Light dims to darkness…   I am numb… I am free...  ...

I need to write-- my mind will not allow me. Feed my imagination. I am growing restless. Come close and I will sting you with my boredom.   I am dissociated from the world around me …lost in my thoughts. My thoughts are tangential--- my thoughts should be linear. Or should they? Perhaps, not now. I am lost in my tangled and obscured thoughts. My thoughts, my thoughts, my thoughts...  ...

The Waiting Game

The ocean is frigid and deep; sunken ships await my entrance My head is bobbing above and below the tide as I gasp for air Quivering lips turning blue…legs kicking and arms flailing…eyes desperate I fight to stay above the surface but then begin to wonder Is the struggle to survive worth the fight?   I have been playing the waiting game to no avail Reality is fading into false...

When We Danced the Waltz

The bright sun slowly rising from across the horizon A new day beginning to unveil and show itself The crisp air was chilly the birds beginning to sing A beautiful day approaching intertwined with strong emotions   She slowly walked along the trail away from her cabin She hugged herself with the quilt wrapped around her shoulders Walking into the field of long grass she stared ahead...

Three hours, three days, three weeks---- I need three months to create a poem of substance! Formats and slant rhymes ingrained in my memory; I have made a mockery of them all! Perfection has been my greatest destruction.   Poetry portfolio destroyed when my back was turned. A melancholic expression no less not a single tear. What was I to do?   My book in the process of final...

Jack and Ellie: Chapter Three (The End)

Once Ellie had returned to her apartment building she slowly walked up three flights of stairs to the top floor where she resided in her studio. Each step was painfully slow, and her melancholic face never wavered. Once she reached the door to her studio, Ellie slowly turned the key in the lock and was greeted with darkness as she opened the door. Walking inside, she leaned against the door...

Jack and Ellie: Chapter Two

Ellie looked around the café, taking in its surroundings. Paintings from various artists adorned the off white walls. Large circular dimly lit lights hung from the ceiling. Intricately crafted wooden chairs surrounded small granite tables. Lavender and white peonies in small circular vases were placed in the center of each table. And a small coat rack stood in the front corner of the café....

I can feel the tears behind my eyes My body won’t allow myself to cry Repressed my feelings for far too long I’m in love with the person I’ve molded myself to be   Surprise me as I turn the corner I’d rather not expect a thing…how boring Try to make me scream I dare you You will fail… I thrive off fear   I need to cry In love knowing not one tear will escape Music I listen to...

Beautiful Disaster

In the darkness, I live in tortured peace In the blackness, I am surrounded by empty solace I am grateful for the darkness for it is inspirational I am desolate in the blackness for all words have escaped my mind   My eyes drift yet I force insomnia to inspire my complex mind I crave the quiet darkness nighttime gifts me The complexities of my dreams are blurred with reality My...
