“all your poems are amazing! I’ve told you this before, but you really are among my very favorite poets living or dead. You’ve got a way of distilling a feeling, a moment, or capturing the essence of a place or idea like very few.” -coloradopoet 1/29/21 https://mtaggartwriter.wordpress.com/2019/02/18/poem-have-a-day/

The Dance of the Living
The shadows are uncovered
I’m not afraid to stare back at where they lived
they don’t frighten me as they once did
their looming shapes and giant mighty waving arms have lost their power
they don’t define me
they won’t confine me
I am dancing down the road in sunlight
Unafraid to reach for what I want
Unapologetic for who I am
This dance is from the sun and rain
the leaves, the stones, the dirt and all living things
It is the dance of the living; the heart beating, the eye blinking, the breath moist, the mind thinking

It’s the simple oddities, the altered and possibly even strange, that I enjoy most. Is this the road less traveled that Frost wrote of so long ago? Then again, long in who’s mind? That partial-swamp, the pathway leading deep into the woods, was itself before the words were written. And how strange for me to think those saplings are the new growth; two of which are already bent at the knees forever bowing to the less disadvantaged.

Held back massively in 2020. Be prepared. I plan to post as often as I feel on this blog in 2021. However, and whenever I like. I posted 120 less times in 2020 than in 2019. This blog is the reason I’ve been published. This blog was, and is, my outlet. This blog helps carry my soul on stairs most wouldn’t care to walk on. Had a baseball bat swung at my head through my car window, glass everywhere, spit it out onto the pavement; watched the largest moon I’ve ever seen near a wide and deep river, where years before, Hell was shown to me, in front of accidental viewers: how can anyone steep in such lowness and enjoy their lust. Maybe a walk down memory lane will help clear the view. Maybe I’ll drive to the very spot, drag a few with me, and see what’s to see. The moon walks on land when we let it. Saw a dark sky asking for a view the other night.
Rumors and speculation surround the possible inhabitants of Blackout Island, located just a few miles off the coast. Conspiracy theories abound while social media leaks surface about government experiments gone wrong. Certainly something or someone must live there, for haven’t we all seen the shaky home videos of the occasional wisp of smoke or recordings of eerie sounds carrying far across the water on a calm summer night? Something wicked has been let loose within its depths… And it’s time for the truth to be revealed.
Featuring seven dark stories by L.E. Aleman, Darren Diarmuid, Lauren Rylant, A.P. Christopher, -M. Taggart, M. Ennenbach, and Joann L. Berg.
Check me out on Facebook for occasional posts that aren’t always included on this blog. Such as the creepy nighttime photo I took on an old dirt road on Halloween night!
I hope everyone is as well as possible. I know for myself, sometimes I am, and sometimes I’m not.
As the embryo speaks,
“Can’t we be,
and build another world.”
Only a few will hear
and fewer still will listen.
My short story, ‘The Stump Maker,’ word count his risen to 3,400!
There’s something about bringing a story to life that fills my soul full of positive fuel.
The submission word cap is 5,000..so I’ll be sliding this one to an end shorty…a heart pounding end I hope! It is a horror story after all ;P
I hope your day is treating you well.
Author of ‘Only. Just. Here.’ Which is published in America’s Emerging Horror Writers: East Region:
And author of the award winning short story, ‘Bodies in The Basement.’
I haven’t seen him since 2016
This is us
Wrote a story about him
He’s in the middle
I’m on the right
Phil is on the left
Love the man
He always said
We got to try everything once
That was then
I wonder about that now
