Hey all.

So if you want to know about me... well, ask. I'm not going to sit here spouting random facts about me 'cause that's just boring. Go read my stuff instead. It's way more interesting...

Before you do though, just one note about some of the poems and stories before I get disowned by a few certain friends of mine...

Just because it's first person, doesn't mean it's from my perspective. So many people don't get that. But just because I said that, doesn't mean it's not. If you for some reason need to know- ask me. Maybe I'll tell you. Maybe I won't. It's worth a gamble, though.

Oh, and for the record, I have gone through and cleared out a few of the pieces I just couldn't stand anymore...

Anyway, on with the show.

Slow it down

Don't dance so fast

Time is short

The music won't last

Carpe Diem, kids- you only get one shot at life.

A Shipwreck by Landcaster reviews
Originally about a painting Vernet's Shipwreck , which depicts a struggling set of sailors crawling on a rocky coast after a wreck. In the distance is a glorious sunset and set of ships. Basically the poem tries to capture the feeling and sounds of it.
