E. Izabelle Cassandra Alexander grew up in a little village in Hungary and have been writing poetry since age ten. After relocating to the United States, it took her thirteen years to express herself in English through poetry, since one must open his or her heart in order to create something memorable worth reading.
Some of her work has been published and forthcoming in Spark, Unlimited Literature, and on the IL State Poetry Society’s website and in their next anthology, Distilled Lives.
Her nonfiction piece titled Disciplined Discipline received honorable mention in a contest by WOW Woman, and several of her poems, fiction, and nonfiction stories had been selected by Oakton Community College to represent them in the annual Skyway Competitions over the last five years.
Izabelle is a mother of three lovely children and four pets. She has a Bachelor’s Degree in Information Systems and an MBA in Business.
My whole world is crumbling
Breaking at the edges and seams
Being whole is just an elusive dream
A life of meaning
Crashing down to the ground
Dressed in purple
In the color of prestige and royalty
But feeling lost and
worth nothing at all,
Walking on paths of vibrant flowers
But nothing more than a soul
Longing to be home in eternal peace since
Upon this earth, I’m just a prisoner of grief
