I hope to reach out to those who've ever suffered chronic physical pain, oppression, gone through dramatic transition in life, or just experienced the toll life takes on your soul sometimes. I like to believe that I have a pretty creative imagination, and a sensitive, emotional understanding, and I feel that my mind is unlimited in projecting my thoughts whether directly or indirectly, often exposing truths, as well as fueling fantasies that are obviously unobtainable, yet enjoyable to dive into occasionally. So to anyone who wishes to read any of my poetry, I hope you will be able to connect with it one way or another and please feel free to comment on any of my words spoken. Thank you.
If anyone wants to contact me via e-mail, I have created an alternate address specifically for my fellow booksians...anytime you wanna ask me anything, or just talk, here it is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Frozen by the Unfathomable Cruelty of Man
-10/16/09 (written by meg)
Frozen within the realms of hollowed time,
Decayed, we've become, behind the glass emotion,
Broken by those who forsake all forgiveness,
Yet, somehow, unsinking, within this vast ocean,
Of unfathomable reality versus mere fantasy,
We will break the ice with our committed devotion...
The Fact Remains
'a trigger on a loaded gun...forgive me, for I've decayed the sun...forever lifeless, against the blackened horizon...being weathered by these ashes, within this endless abyss of boredom...' -*m*
My name is Meg, I just turned 31 years old(but I still feel "forever 21" in my mind and heart). I live in Texas...I have been a single mom to a three-year-old daughter, named Tori Bethany(from a previous abusive relationship) until recently; I have fallen in love with someone, whom I have known for nearly a decade, and now we are married. He is my best friend in the whole world.....................................
Update: As of July 24th, 2009-I am now married to Andy, my new husband, my best friend, my lover...

Between the tainted love,
and all the bitter hatred,
and the bleeding promises,
that were never really stated,
you remained a lonely soul,
loathed by yourself, tormented,
until my own torn heart revived,
what was once proclaimed dead...
I have been living with a disability called Interstitial Cystitis, for approximately 6 years now. But I am happy to announce that it has finally gone into remission, so I am no longer in any pain. I have been through a lot of other turmoil in the past year, but that's a bit personal. Still I must press on. I haven't been on Booksie for quite some time, but I fully intend to start writing poetry again. In the meantime, I've taken up reading many novels along the way. Some I can recommend is the Flappers Trilogy: Vixen, Ingenue, and Diva. Another good young adult novel is the Everneath series. I am currently reading a fantasy novel called the Mistborn trilogy, all of which are worth reading.
I absolutely love music, a little of everything, but due to life's circumstances, my taste in music has drastically changed(maybe it's cause I'm older haha) I especially love alternative, industrial, and rock and roll, in general, along with pop hits and even some hiphop and r&b...without music, life would be boring...World history, arts, and science capture my interests...My favorite artists include Salvador Dali, and Vincent Van Gogh,...I also like some of the poetic writings and short stories of author, Poe. .
Me, personally: I have green eyes and jet black hair. .I'm of english, irish, scottish, dutch, and german descent, with a touch of cherokee indian..
My fave colors (and mostly to wear) are: black, gray, and blue mainly, but I also like white and teal..
Some of my fave bands/musicians in general and at the moment: Nine Inch Nails, Tori Amos, Cruxshadows, Paramore, Oasis, Our Lady Peace, John Newman, Bush, Smashing Pumpkins, Britney Spears, and Meredith Brooks, and I'm sure there's more, but it doesn't really matter...
My fave movies of all time: Across the Universe, Donnie Darko('why are you wearing that stupid man-suit?') Napoleon Dynamite('hey, tina, you fat lard, come get some dinner!'), Stranger Than Fiction, The Count of Monte Cristo...
The meaning behind my choice pen-name, RaisinGirl:
'The cereal bowl is used as a metaphor for divisions among women. The "Cornflake Girls" are close-minded while the "Raisin Girls" are open to new ideas.' (I got this from a well-known song by the independent musician Tori Amos, and well, the song is "Cornflake Girl"...) 'This song speaks for every girl that was ever "unpopular" in high school and instead of letting it defeat you, turn it into your strength.'
