Who I am is not what I look like, what I wear, or what I appear to be on the outside. It is what I say, what I think, how I behave, and how I relate to other people that are important. Having said that, I am short, thin, light, dark-haired, and usually make-up-less. I am my own person, shaped by the lives of those around me, namely my friends and coworkers. I enjoy thunderstorms, coffee, and physical affection, and I write too many sentences a day that begin with 'I'.
Why do I write poetry? Because I if feel strongly about something, whether that be love, hate, or bad experiences, I feel the need to set those emotions down on paper. Other people who feel the same way can then relate and learn from the writings of one who has experienced such things. I write for escape, for knowledge, for release from the boundaries of traditional writing.
"I would rather share sadness with the one I can't have, than laughter with one who doesn't want me for who I am. "
2) Lonely World- Just some reminiscence on the last three years in a new school. ..The basis for this poem is completely true, based on experiences I've had in the past. This is the poem that gives the deepest insight into my psyche so far. Maybe it's a new trend for my poetry...?
4) Before I Could Save You- If you've ever read the book "Silver is for Secrets" (Stolarz), you'll know why I wrote this poem. I was haunted and bleak after I finished reading, and immediately grabbed for a nearby paper and pen. This is the result.
3) Only in the Aftermath- Entirely true and completely heartfelt outpourings about one of my closest friends. Maybe one day, he'll find happiness again.
5) Of Sadness and Saviours- It's amazing how, when it comes down to the wire, words are just words and the one person you thought you could rely on for a little bit isn't there. It's not their responsibility to be there, either...but sometimes they're the only link between you and hope. Again, entirely true.
