Hidden Facets reviews
This was just meant to be another small story for my website, but it ended up developing into a full-blown story idea. I had a dream about being in a nuclear explosion (again, it's one of my common dreams) and I ran down into the nearest subway and it tur

Another poem back from the dark old days. And considering that I lost my dad last night, it's quite fitting that it's one of my angst-ridden poems.

Sometimes I find the hardest person to be around is myself. This is obviously a problem. This is a story told as if a person is being their own therapist. Their mind is diagnosing their own problems.

Nothing to do with time itself, (for a change) this song is just another satire on politics, in a way. On the whole, it's just a collection of words that I quite like, but I guess you can read between the lines and find meaning and matter in here somewher

I can't really remember much about writing this one. I think I had too many other ideas flying around in my head at the time so I just wanted to get this one finished and out of the way. So sometimes it seems a bit clumsy.

A song I wrote whilst in the state of mind I have to be in to write things like this. Ocassioanlly I find that these type of songs by me get a little whiney and preachy, but I try to keep the tempo up and the clich├ęs down. Don't know if I manage it though
