For my Favorite Admirer

Posted On February 14th, 2024

Every time I look at you

it’s a vibe

You’re fully locked in on me

And it shows

You look at me with the kindest, the softest, eyes I’ve ever felt

Your energy towards me is possessive

There’s no secret about your intentions

to protect me, my peace, and my happiness,

at all costs

Your compliments are consistent

You extend grace towards me

for the same flaws that you embrace

You set the standard for how to adore me

You can’t let a day go by without expressing your appreciation

for, and of, me

You are who I look forward to seeing




In my reflection

I love you

And you love me back

And as long as me and you remain good

Then everything else…

well everything else gone be alright

Happy Valentine’s Day Beautiful People!

Perfect Monster

Perfect Monster

Original poem by Ms. Scott

Ms. Scott

I have two minds

One says I can do no wrong

The other says all I do is wrong

I listen to them both

My mirror shows two reflections

One of beauty, power, and hope

The other of unworthiness, weakness, and defeat

I see them both

I am at once enough and lacking

My consistent projection of perfection

Conveniently blocks your view of my flaws

Until it’s too late…for you

I am too strong to ask for help, much less receive it

It seems, I may just have to gather up my conflicting minds

And two faces and destroy your wonderful image of me

Before it’s too late…for me

Announcing my new book release: “No Really, I’m Fine”

Posted On March 24th, 2022

PSA: I stopped reaching for the stars and just GRABBED one! And I confess, I love the way this success feels in the palm of my hand.  

Let me explain. 

Recently, I made the decision to stop aspiring towards my dreams, and to just do the work to achieve them. As a result, in the past 13 months, I published not just one book, but TWO. That’s right, I released my first novella, “A Table for One” in February 2021 and just published the sequel, “No Really, I’m Fine,” last week! Never mind the fact that this occurred while I served in a Key Development (KD) assignment in my full-time career as an Army Officer. I prioritized an accomplishment that served MY happiness, supported MY dreams, and fulfilled MY purpose. And I don’t have a single regret. On the contrary, I am beyond proud of myself for having the courage to put ME first. 

I am also extremely and externally grateful to everyone that supports my work. It’s true, I could never thank you enough for encouraging me to do that thing that makes my heart smile the brightest and biggest. Writing books. 

Indeed, no longer do I aspire to be an Author. I am one. Twice over. 

Grabbing stars is addictive. Try it out and let me know if you agree.

Best Friends

Posted On January 12th, 2022

The goal of my life

Is to get my heart and mind

To ride the same wave

At the same time

And to have neither fall off

To realize that their connection

Has the power to calm storms

But that their separation

Creates them

I want my feelings and thoughts

To be Best Friends

That never fight, each other

But that will go to war, for each other

Creating a heart 

that listens to reason

And a mind that knows

when it’s not the right season

for love

I’ve given you too much power
You’ve betrayed me one too many times
And it turns out
You know very little about what I need
And even less about what I deserve
Yet you are in control of everything

From now on
I think I will experience love
Less with my heart
And more with my eyes
And see where that gets me

There’s something I’ve never told a soul

And I’m not sure if you can take it, if I shared with you

It’s about the girl I used to be

About something I was forced to do

You see I haven’t always been this woman you know

Didn’t always hold my head up quite so high

In fact, I used to believe that everything about me was less than

Though I know now, that’s a bold-faced lie

Because I murdered the girl I used to be

And truth be told, I’d do it again

Because she would’ve done anything to make me lose this confidence

She would’ve always let, my insecurities win

So yes, I celebrate myself on purpose

Because I survived the battlefield of my mind

And that’s why the only thoughts that enter my head right now

Are full of self-love and positive vibes

The Gift of You

Posted On June 4th, 2021

Picture yourself in that moment
When all that you are, is everything they see
And the message of “enoughness” you came to deliver
Is the very gift everyone around you receives

Yes, yes I know there’s so much you need me to do
Right now
At this moment
So many things that I told you I would do
For you
Right now
At this moment

Who gave me this thing in the first place
That is the question of the hour
Who tricked me into believing that if I put this thing on
It would give me all this so called “magic” and power

Already Full

Posted On March 1st, 2021

I have always found myself in relationships that were unequally yoked. Mainly emotionally, sometimes financially, and a time or two even spiritually. And I always stayed in those relationships until the wheels fell off. I managed to start every day as if I had not already figured out that I would not get what I needed from that particular ‘union.’ And I stayed because the thought of being without the other person frightened me more than the reality that I was already without that other person. I stayed because I valued the idea of “togetherness”, more than I did the possibility of “wholeness” centered completely and fully…on me.
