Hey there!

I mostly write poetry, and sometimes it turns out okay. I really love it, though. I may be posting other fiction on here in the future, it just depends on how busy I am.

Hope you enjoy!

Please leave reviews and tell me what you think! I'd love to get any kind of input or just a hello.

Some of my favorite quotes about poetry:

Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash. ~Leonard Cohen

Poetry is a mirror which makes beautiful that which is distorted. ~Percy Shelley, A Defence of Poetry, 1821

Poetry should... should strike the reader as a wording of his own highest thoughts, and appear almost a remembrance. ~John Keats

The poet doesn't invent. He listens. ~Jean Cocteau

The only problem
with Haiku is that you just
get started and then
~Roger McGough

Perhaps no person can be a poet, or can even enjoy poetry, without a certain unsoundness of mind. ~Thomas Babington Macaulay

God is the perfect poet. ~Robert Browning

Poetry is an echo, asking a shadow to dance. ~Carl Sandburg

Poetry is the synthesis of hyacinths and biscuits. ~Carl Sandburg

P.S. If you have never read these poems, you should: Scary, No Scary by Zachary Schomburg and The Plummeting Old Women by Daniil Kharms
