I live in Florida and I am a local dessert vendor called The Ice Queen. I started writing poetry in elementary school and never thought much about it. I think it has a lot to do with being a hopeless romantic and I'm hypersensitive to other people's emotions, circumstances, relationships and everything in between. I found out later while in treatment for drug and alcohol addiction that poetry was a huge part of my recovery. I used poetry to help express myself and put my thoughts to paper. I can't write on a whim like some. I found that my poetry is inspired by my surroundings and how they have impacted me at that moment. Poetry is such a blessing and a beautiful form of expression that I get to share with others.

I was told that my ability to choose what was best...

If Heaven Had a Telephone

If Heaven had a telephone
I'd call you everyday.
To check on you like I used to do
Before you went away.

Whether on my way to work
Or to the grocery store.
You were always just a call away
But now you are no more.

If Heaven had a...

Dear Mommy (A letter from her unborn child)

Dear Mommy,

You don't know me, yet
Because I'm brand new
I'm that new life
Growing inside of you.

Every breath you take
I take with you
So, when you take that drink
I do that, too.

Please keep me safe
And free from harm
So I can be...
