Author has written 8 stories for Horror, Politics, General, General, and Life.

Hello. I'm Jude (or Smithy - people call me Smithy). I'm a former art student (graduated from a high school of the arts, currently attending a somewhat crummy community college with the full intention to transfer and become a forensic psychologist). I studied creative writing at school and continue in the pursuit. I've got rather a few poems published. Poetry is the main thing I do (though I still "dabble" in fiction, if you call "occasionally writing tiredness-fueled short stories and attempting novels and novellas" dabbling).

I like tea and corgis and lots of music and art and nightmare fuel and fandom and yeah. Cheers.

A Suicide Sonnet
Exactly what the title says - a Shakespeare-style sonnet about suicide. Note - I don't mean to advocate suicide at all. I'm merely using it as a topic for a poem.

The Pairing of the Reds reviews
A semi-abstract poem about how people who were once friends can be torn apart later in life when they begin to adopt differing ideologies. Marked as "politics" because it's written with political views in mind, but any differences could apply.

The Last Streetlight Before Heaven
A man has escaped from a madhouse "Purgatory" to journey into a "Heaven" of his own making. Technically horror, but the main fear is of a psychological nature.

You Can't Hide From Yourself
A brief account of what it's like to be pursued by an intangible enemy and realize that the mere thought of nothing can be very frightening. Rated because, although scary, nothing actually HAPPENS...which could be scarier than if it did.
