And now for some inspiring words...


We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for. To quote from Whitman, "O me! O life!... of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless--of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life? Answer. That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse." That the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?

- Keating (Dead Poets Society), Peter Weir


These are my verses. Enjoy them please :)

The Dead Letter Office
This play incorporates both abstract and concrete elements to tell the story of a man who deterioates into insanity within the context of a dead letter office. This was inspired in part by Bartleby the Scrivener but is somewhat darker. Please review!

Rainbow reviews
Short and somewhat morbid in a very subtle way, no worries. Story behind this: four friends of my cousin died in a car accident the other day.. got me thinking about death and such. Very deep... not necessarily the truth, just a channel for my sadness.

Can you tell me? reviews
Everyone keeps telling me to caputre my emotions about a breakup that befell me in words, so that is what I've done. Very intense, maybe a slight exageration of the emotions I'm feel... but hey, I'm entitled to be melodramatic in light of the events! Plea
