I'm a poet, and I know it.
The truth is rarely pure and never simple. Oscar Wilde
I sound my barbaric yawp o'er the rooftops of the world. Walt Whitman
If I can stop one Heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain. Emily Dickinson
We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars. Oscar Wilde
(now the ears of my ears awake and now the eyes of my eyes are opened) E. E. Cummings
Every English poet should master the rules of grammar before he attempts to bend or break them. Robert Graves
- then on the shore of the wide world I stand alone and think, till love and fame to nothingness do sink. John Keats
Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination. Oscar Wilde
To see the world in a grain of sand, and Heaven in a wildflower... William Blake
Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face. Victor Hugo

Welcome to my abstract Elysium.
(Your comments are greatly appreciated. I will do my best to return the favor.)
(A few FAQ's answered:
The "numbers" for some of my poems' titles are the "time of inspiration"... I got tired of titles that gave too much away.
I realize the line and stanza breaks seem random - they're not. They are intended to add a new meaning to each line. Although lately, the formatting hates me and refuses to let me include any stanza breaks at all... grrr. Someone want to PM me about how to fix that?
I don't always capitalize "I" because I don't want to, not because I can't. The lines may or may not have capitals, proper punctuation, even spelling - I assure you it's all intentional. Please don't assume I can't spell. I can.
The poets who inspire me are Emily Dickinson, John Keats, e e cummings, and Shakespeare.
Also, thank you so much for the lovely reviews. I truly appreciate it. Please do leave feedback!)
