Tie of Love

Stepping out of self blame

I saw him for the first time..

Standing there, he was, all along

It was my eyes that went sidelong..

You can mark me as a narcissist

But your words are not gonna make me desist..

Its candid Iam in love with myself

For its him I see when I look At myself..

Detached

When the cold seeps into my bones

I wonder how long until my heart feels numb

Deep down your memory burns

Yearning for an illusion, Iam feeling so dumb

Waking up from a trance is nothing but hard

Have to let go before it consumes me whole

Hoping from now on I can keep up my guard

Yet, deep inside, I know I will never again be whole…

Desolate

When life’s disloyalty becomes more than I can bear

When it feels there’s no escape from this deep despair

I repeat my words of anguish to the one who still hear

“Take me away to where there is only cheer”

When I shed a tear, when I think of you at night

Of all the sweet memories that gave me so delight..

I wish I could send my love and brush my words away

Yet here I sit with an aching heart, pain unspoken, my thoughts gone astray..

Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus you own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
