er - just a crazy guy who likes writing, and reading, all kinds of poetry, but especially dark poetry... as for the rest... you don't want to know
the one thing I don't get many of is reviews. For anybody who's actually reading this and actually cares... that's a hint... please R&R my work!

Alright - updating my page (finally). I'm a Christian who for some time strayed such a distance from God that the only thing still connecting me to HIm was my faith in Him and in His word. Now, about 4 years after I began to turn away from Him, I have recently returned with a whole heart to His word. My poetry and fiction from this point forward will reflect that, but I will leave all my former poems up if any of you desire to see just how far I strayed from the light. I believe the contrast between then and now is a testimony to God's power in that it shows how He was able to turn someone like me back from a path my feet would never have been able to forsake on their own. All glory be unto Him forever and ever, amen.

"And so my passion hath not swerved
to works of weakness, but I find
an image comforting the mind,
And in my grief a strength reserved."

"I'll hold this true whate'er befall,
I feel it when I sorrow most:
'Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all,"

-Alfred Lord Tennyson-

You know - sometimes some of the oldest and best known hymns are the best - here is one of my favorites:

"Amazing grace: how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost, but now am found:
Was blind, but now I see."

I thank God for all He has done for me, though I am so undeserving of His love. God bless you all.
