Author has written 12 stories for General, Haiku, Life, Nature, Love, and Sci-Fi.

Recently, I've been assigned to write a sonnet in English class. At first I thought, "This shouldn't be so bad, I write poetry all the time!"

Oh, sweet, innocent, ignorant me from two days ago (at the time of writing this). But yeah, I'm definitely not fancying this classic sort of poetry. Maybe it's just because the only real poetry I practiced before this with a strict syllable set was haikus, and I'm stuck in that mindset. I guess the point I'm trying to get at here is that I'm happy to have the internet. I don't think poetry in the style I write would get such positive feedback in an environment other than this, especially when there are still a lot of people who view poetry in the kind of mindset that reading Shakespearean sonnets can give someone. [DISCLAIMER: I actually enjoy reading sonnets, and I have nothing against the people who write them. I can just see how some people wouldn't really get into them. Also, I could never write them, so if you do, kudos.]

So in an even shorter summary of a short statement, The internet is awesome and poetry on the internet is awesome.

Thank you for reading my babbling, even if it just was that paragraph.

Not everything can be blamed on the hormones of a person, that's just my opinion.

This reviews
I've been reading Paper Covers Rock by Jenny Hubbard and it got my poetry juices flowing again. (Don't worry, I'll finish that short story eventually.) Anyway, this one's more of an experiment with rhythm and pacing than any of my other poems. It, like all of my poems, is about my life. Leave a review, please.

Fast, Binge
I loath to be man. But I cannot leave. I'll admit I probably rushed the ending a bit on this one, but at least I actually finished a story. Leave a review if you read it please.

Another Poem About Drought reviews
Another love song, another poem about drought. I don't really know how to explain this one except for "a word collage of my recent life." Anyway, tell me what you think.

Desolation is a Flower reviews
A little poem about where I've found myself in this world. Why I'm still there. Feel free to comment, please throw in your two cents.

Eleven Years from Now reviews
A little something I wrote up when I heard the song "2024" by Cage the Elephant, wondering about my future.

My Outlet reviews
I wrote this today, sick and staying home. I was bored, and I have to say it's probably my favorite poem that I've written. Not to say it's my best, but my favorite. Basically a poem about writing poems.

December Rain
Kind of a follow up to the haiku I did, "Autumn in Drought." Both poems I plan on using in a little story that I'm getting help with, which will also be called Autumn in Drought.

My mind's love
My head's screwed up. I think I'm not alone there. I guess this was just some way for expressing it's screwed up thoughts about itself.

Autumn In Drought reviews
A little haiku I wrote about my feelings on the drought that was going on here in mid-western America. I only wish I'd have thrown in something about how oddly beautiful I found it.
