About Adagio

Biography

Just a guy who enjoys life and good people. Writing has given me an outlet to express myself. Born in the deep south. That is where my roots are and I have a fondness for books.

I own a small bookshop with a coffee shop. And I enjoy collaborations and discussing ideas. At times I tread the dark side.

I spent twelve years in the USMC. Also at one time owned a chain of video shops. I sold them all before the roof caved in.

Topic: Looking for a proofreader
Posted: 30 Dec 2019 08:40

Thanks Survivor, I understand.
I am sorry for that, because I genuinely love both to read and write. Most sites allow publishing with just a check if the story meet the rules, if any. I know here and the red site value proper English so I was looking forward to be able to publish here and see how my mistakes can be corrected. I understand that it can be considered a job, and I'm not looking to hire an editor. I write a lot because I can leave my fantasy free. I mostly write for my own pleasure, but hoped I could share some of the stories here.
I'll try to find someone somewhere else who can be willing to proofread, otherwise I'll keep writing for myself. Even if 'sloppy' sites I could probably publish the stories, I'm just not comfortable enough with publishing something that may not be written properly.
Regards.


How many "words" are you talking about?

I wish more people would come to SS. It's disheartens me to see so few writers and readers.

Wings of a Peacock

Hearing tapping on the window-pane with wings of a peacock. I looked up and saw a shadow, as I envisioned my Romulus. Knowing it was a ghost in loneliness, crying in the rain of my despair, somewhere on the edge of time, as I felt wanton lips kiss. From my bedroom bordello in a dark shroud of lust, my pulse came back to you, as I envisioned my Romulus. But for a moment's grief, before...

Once There Were Gods

Now ghosts are the blessed ones Where once there were gods Along the Euphrates Now but sand dunes   Wearing shrouds of memories Of the breaths, we spoke On streets of gold Only the ghosts knew   Of the dark full green Rushing toward the Spring As young lovers, we played Where once there were gods Along the Euphrates Now ghosts are the blessed ones  ...

Shadows Of Daffodils

In meadows and shadows of daffodils As they runneth over sweet nectar Of melodies and forever tomorrows As my spirit walks through light And angels choir of golden sunsets Like swans, we dance with arabesque A classical romance of love In valley high touching clouds As my heart swells In meadows and shadows of daffodils    ...

Faded Memories

What is my state of mind in mime scribbling words that ease my soul as night falls and the crickets chirrup    assuming dark but put it to rest Feeling your breath touch me and knowing that you are there to comfort me night and day in love's prevail What is my state of mind in mime taking a seat as my mind levitates in this restful place of mine faded memories of past Fingers talking...

Memories Of Now

Lighting a candle, seeing it glow Watching the flame dance Bringing back memories of now In shadows of my mind And the innocence of your lace Every thought of you is a poem Like a Swan dance in rhyme Bringing back memories of now For no man could love you more...

Tinged Of Snow

Walking the night wearing gloves trailing a veil of seductive lace so ebony's song of twilight As frost lay light as a feather   missing the touch of softness as strange as it may seem Yet your breath seduces me   as the shadows fall on the dark and deep scarlet of rising tides   Lusting in my veins for love so true of things that will haunt me forever walking the night wearing gloves...

Shadows Play

As shadows play among broken stones And eyes piercing, empty stare The resting place of poets bygone I give to you my soul spoken True love beyond the portal With crimson red lips   In the moonlight of the autumn moon With my dark sacred charms   Loving you is preordained Burning within my lusting veins As shadows play among broken stones...

Feeling Your Shadow

Feeling your shadow as you whisper The tenets of requited romance   With thimbles full of pheromones   Dark is for lovers and musical chairs Muted notes in my ear once upon a rhyme As the piccolo winds blow through your hair With a silence at the end of my prayer That you will still be there in a jubilee Feeling your shadow as you whisper Dark is for lovers and musical chairs In...

Before The Dawn Falls The Dew

Whispering, it was the age of reasoning, but who was I deceiving Alone without a prayer, a hymnal, or song to sing   As I stumbled to the microwave to heat last night's coffee On this Monday morning before the dawn falls the dew   I'd been a fool with my profane and liquored-down soul Swilling down the redeye as you gave me your love But all I ask is forgiveness for this old broken fool...

Body And Soul

When in loneliness soloing blue Like sometimes I do As the moon's shadow falls on a rose In my lucidity free from the thorns And the vagabonds of dark    As we dance in dreams Body and soul on god's carousel And forty acres of Heaven   On cotton candy trails   As the moon's shadow falls on a rose When in loneliness soloing blue Skipping with my Lou...
