The Art of Unfriending on Facebook

When it comes to social media, some might say that in real life I am anti-social. My non-poetic, non-anonymous self has a total of 31 friends on Facebook and 14 followers on Twitter, as compared to approximately 10,000 “Likes” on my Facebook author page and over 150,000 followers on Twitter.

The service is through industry leaders Skimlinks, who have been the top innovators in the affiliate marketing space since 2008.

My Pandemonium

All around me is the bustle of life
yet I imagine myself on a beach
my toes placed within the cold sand

a restless dream within an hourglass.

My weak heart does now heave, always expecting the worse
I head to the gallows…

The Sky

I am sitting in 1C, waiting for the thrust of the Rolls Royce engines to propel me forward. I firmly clutch the faded gray, faux leather armrest with my left hand, revealing blue veins through now white clenched fingers. As the whir of the engines begins to purr, the miniature Dasani water bottle bounces around happily as the underbelly of the jumbo jet licks…
