I’m Lira

Welcome to my open journal.


This is me, Lira:

A young (and underpaid!) teacher, formerly known online as Tris.

I’m known as ML in the “real world” — no, I won’t tell you my “real” name.

{You can read Volcano here — just for fun! And, for more fun, please read my “proper” bio here!}

I decided it was time to change this introduction, and focus on the things I want to share, more than on who I am, despite what the title says.

Poetry, thoughts, countless free verses, maybe a few lines in my native language (Portuguese), nonsensical philosophy, drawings, ramblings & who knows what else I could do on this blog…

Maybe I’ll throw a pity party someday.

You’re invited.




PS. Some commas may be missing because punctuation and I live a strange romance together.
Also(,) picture dots everywhere. Everywhere. They might be added for fun or in benefit of *cough* art. I’m also passionate about post scripta.

PPS. Yes, I drew my Gravatar. Yep, she’s supposed to be me.

PPS. My blue heart logo was painted by YC, a young artist from Lancashire, England. Since Y doesn’t have her own page (yet), please, leave a comment. I will forward it to her.

PPPS. If you speak or understand Portuguese, maybe check out my new and smaller blog, Liras Azuis.


Do you want to contact me? Interested in using any written or photographic material from my blog?

(Only god knows why)

Leave a comment, please. I will respond back ASAP!

    1. Your words do mean a lot. I’m always unsure if what I write is good, or even understandable, but I really do write to redeem my world – and always with honesty.

      Thank you, Tom.


    1. You’re very welcome. I’m very fond of the bloggers I like — you, Phantasmagoria, A. Ramsey and others. I give you likes because I think your writings truly deserve them.

      Many hugs and keep writing!

      1. Thank you. I don’t think my blog gets read much, but that’s not something that bothers me.

        It is nice to be read and be a blogger than someone likes.

        I rarely get hugs, and I don’t think I could stop writing. Been writing poetry since I was 12, and it’s just something I do.

      2. Me too, I’ve been writing since my preteen years. It was rubbish, maybe it still is, but I’ve found such a therapy in art. I’m fine with the views I get — I have no intention of becoming a well known writer, or anything like that.

        Well, I hope you enjoy the virtual hug since you don’t get many.



      3. In the real world, there’s a lot I can’t say because I don’t want to spend my life arguing with people. Writing helps me to put across what I feel I need to.
        With your writing being ‘rubbish’, I don’t see writing as good or bad. If you enjoy doing it, and it’s what you want to do, and it’s saying something you want to say, good and bad cease to exist as reasons to do something.
        If you ever feel like chatting, send me an email {edit}. I enjoy chatting to people, I spend too much time alone now days.


      4. Well, I’m a self loathing addict, that’s why I said rubbish, although I’m very fond of my writings.

        I edited your email so spam bots won’t pick it. And sure — I’ll send you an email later.

        I agree that there’s a lot of things that should (or happen to remain unsaid in real life — for many reasons!), so I write them down and let them exist in that way.


  1. Hi Lira,
    I am delighted to tell you that you won the giveaway of “Why are you a vegan?” and other wacky verse for kids. Sorry I couldn’t contact you privately as I can’t find your email address, but you can delete this after you’ve read it :-) Just come to my About page where you will find a contact form and then you can privately give me your address and I’ll get the book to you as soon as possible. Congratulations :-D

    1. Yayyyy! ((: woohoo, thank you! I will contact you ASAP tomorrow (it’s kind of late here where I am!), but I’m happy to know I won. This is going to help me a lot at work since I’m a language teacher. Thank you so much, I’ll get in touch with you tomorrow. (:
