Hello all and welcome to my new poetry page! For those of you are confused, I'm also Winged One1. My poetry outnumbers my prose horrifically, so I've moved the poetry here.

Basic stats- Name: Simi
Age: 17
Religion: Jewish
Other important facts: I'm easily confused. Bear that in mind when you Review.

Perhaps more will show up in this bio later? You never know.

Goodness. Enjoy the tonloads of poetry! It enjoys you. _~

And Now, A Moment From the Dictionary

angst (ängkst)
n.

A feeling of anxiety or apprehension often accompanied by depression.

(Surprisingly, not "A feeling that you are drenched in your own blood, slashed by the knives of your inner sorrow," or "Incurable gothiness, lamentations, and self-mutilation." Hm.)

I love constructive criticism on anything here, though I have two caveats:

1) Some of these poems are very, very old. If the summary says so, crits of any kind are probably necessary as they're really only here out of a sense of completeness. If you wanna, though, go ahead.

2) I start poems with so/and/but, which I've found baffles some people. That's okay. You may comment on the oddity, but it's sticking. I like the sound of it. :)
