let us go then, you and i, when the evening is spread out against the sky...

After much careful thought and consideration (psh), I've decided to start posting poetry again. Let me make it clear: fictionpress is a very stupid site. When I try to upload my poems, it messes with their format. It's why I stopped posting a couple years ago. And it annoys me, because I have to change my poetry to upload it. Which isn't fair. However, I do so love all the people on this site and miss my old poetry buddies. I write fiction on another account, but I miss the poetry kids. So...I'm back.

If you care to read my stories (mostly romantic fluff) you can find me at fp.dot.com.slash.hollyisfainting


I will add more personal details about myself for my stalker at another date.
