It hurts to hope
A muscle atrophied
Looking to cope,
Methods we alchemied

Our cobbled reason
Mistaken awaken
Cardiac treason
Perception forsaken

Welcomed devils
Make for hidden angels
Darkness revels
Black holes pull all angles

New dawn brightens the horizon
The deals made in the dark reshaped who we once were
A new world the sun will rise in
Struggle to make peace with what became our succor

Moving forward after trauma
Takes step after painful step to embrace our dark
Find lost light to cast our drama
We need both dark and light as we set to embark

I wrote last summer about how I don’t want to write these personal opinion pieces anymore about religion. I wrote it while decrying the heinous act of the same man that spurred on the reason for writing again today. If you are somehow unaware of the events of January 6th, 2021, please let me know what rock you live under especially if there’s room for a few more. I am a former Christian, former evangelical, and then mainline denominational Christian. I’ve since let that all go, and have felt free. …

Space and Time: Letter 4

Dear Friends and Family,

I really am sorry for having to write this letter, and for what I’m about to do. I honestly feel like I have no other choice. Everything was my idea. I am the one who gave Aster the tablet. I was just so captivated by this idea of us working together. I also…

I also have feelings for her. That is why I cannot let her take the blame and punishment…

Hollywood History

Hi there! I’m Marylin Franklin, and this is Hollywood History.

If you are just joining us for the first time, Welcome! Hollywood History is a semi-regular podcast talking about how the history of Hollywood and movies has made an impact on our culture as it is here in 2020.

This week we are discussing one of my absolute all-time favorite studios and films, Ace Studios, and specifically the cultural revolution that was “Meg”.

How long have I stumbled in the dark?
Did I lose you or did you lose me?
I discovered how to disembark.
Don’t remember what I came to see.

Suddenly, a small glimmer of light.
My dimmed eyes telling me sophistry.
How can the way be something so slight,
When darkness became our history?

Regardless, I set my way forward.
Bright, growing from pinprick to sunlight.
Misbelieving it is straightforward.
So long I had been stuck at midnight.

I can see, the beauty I possess,
Was completely lost back in the dark. …

To Anybody!

I don’t know if it’s day or night. I don’t know how long I’ve been like this. It feels like years. I built for myself this, well for lack of a better term, office. I built it out of the darkness I was in.

I was in an accident. I remember riding my bike. I remember making that fatal mistake, and then nothingness. It’s hard to remember much from the nothingness before this. I just recall…

Dear Diary,

As you will recall, I helped my mother clean out my Grandmother’s attic. Aside from the heat, it wasn’t as bad as I was expecting. My mom didn’t bring up the breakup, and mostly our conversation was pleasant. We did get a bit emotional when we found pictures or other sentimental items. I miss my grandmother. She’s gone far too soon. She will miss all the important events of my life. My graduation, my wedding, my…


Look I don’t care if you voted for him once or twice. I don’t care if you are upset that he lost, he did lose fair and square. I know why you did. I know that you were scared. I know that you were manipulated, and you are probably way too proud to ever admit it. That’s fine. You don’t have to admit it.

I will never understand what you saw in him. You will never understand why I hated him so much. I barely understand it myself. I know you don’t understand the overwhelming joy that the majority of…

Hey Asshole!

Yeah, you! I seriously don’t know why you keep making us do all of these horrible things to you! Look, I get it. After all, I am you, at least a part of you. I know what we’ve been through.

Dear Kristi,
I think on the other side you probably have better things to do than to check what people are saying on facebook about you, or I guess to you, but this is my way of coping I guess. I miss you, friend. You meant so much to Cathy and me. You introduced us, after all. You listened to me whine and complain about little things, and even gave me advice on how to be…
