A Moment of Happiness

Completely unexpected

Sitting upon your lap

My eyes meet yours

There is a smile upon my face

Something silly and unimporant is spoken

Laughter comes


author bio:

My name is Alisha Poff. I grew up in Bluefield WV. I’ve always loved to write. Pretty much since I learned how to. I wrote alot of short stories when I was younger. I won a few awards for them. One being the Young Writer’s when I was in 3rd grade. I started writing poetry when I was 13. After I read my first Edgar Allen Poe poem. My main influence is Sylvia Plath. I love her style and her words speak to me. My inspiration comes from my life. I write about everything that has happened to me. The good, the bad, and the ugly. I find it makes for good writing and release. I’m currently in college working towards a journalism degree. In my free time I enjoy laying the tarot, a bit of ghost hunting, and spending time with my loved ones. I practice Wicca. I also spend most of my time reading and of course writing.
