The world so far will be an alternate 1571 and I'm sure it won't be too hard to guess who the prince's mother is in this :P

This is the first in what I hope will be one of my new projects. This story is intended to be gothic fiction. It takes place in the early Victorian era. It's posted here because I don't have a journal for it yet as I don't know if I will continue with the project. But without further ado.

My paternal grandparents died within a year of each other. My grandfather, Willie Charles, died in December 2011. My grandmother, Lizzie Bell, died in November 2012. With the latter I got to attend her funeral and see her. I didn't know either of them well and I'm just now reconnecting with my father's side of the family.

When I saw this prompt on Tumblr, it instantly made me think of them. So the follow poem is the result of that.

Sometime ago, maybe six years? I read a young adult book. The book in question was one of the It Girl novels. While I can't remember much of the plot (But it was deliciously scandalous :P) I remember coming across a poem.

The poem in question was Unfortunate Coincidence by Dorothy Parker. This marks the beginning of my love of this woman.

For the longest time, I would put the complete book of her poems by Penguin Classics into my Amazon cart. But everytime I would end up not getting it, sacrificing it for something I wanted more. I even ended up getting the Complete Stories before I got the poems.

One day on a trip to my local Barnes and Noble, I came across the complete poems. I knew then that I had to get it. It was around $18 and I had to put back another book, but I finally had the complete poems. I remember reading them to my mother in the Kroger's next door.

Today while the net was acting dodgy, I got bored and I reached for the poems. I had never read the poems that were originally published in the Enough Rope volume. I was struck by how much she stewed over death. The title made much more sense by the fact that I had recently read Bobbed Hair and Bathtub Gin by Marion Meade. She said the title derived from something Dorothy said about enough rope to hang one's self.

Its been awhile since I've thought about suicide. But back in my late teen years, it was constantly on my mind. I never went through with it, thank goodness. But I can see and empathize with how she felt. It permeates the senses so much that you can't think about anything else. It is hard to read these poems, but I'm enjoying them. I only hope that I won't become so distressed again. Though with my bipolar disorder, it's likely to happen again.

But all you can do is hope right? Dorothy made it through and that gives me an additional hope that should I ever revisit that dark period in my life that I will triumph again.

I decided to create this journal one day when I thought: I am poet. No, I am a poetess. They are essentially the same thing, but even though the term poetess may be going out of style, I'd still like to use it and claim it. I am a woman and I am proud of that. In my reasoning, can't one still be proud of a certain identity and still be good at their job? Eh ignore me. I'm just rambling.

But anyway I've decided that this journal will catalog my thought on various forms of poetry and other types of creative writing. I won't post my stories here, no there are various communities for that. But I will mostly likely post non series poetry and fiction here. You know that ultra rare one shot before it sprawls into a whole series?

As a side note, I really need to just write a one shot one of these days that doesn't develop into a series. But pigs will fly first.
