"And if I show you my dark side, will you still hold me tonight? 
And if I open my heart to you, show you my weak side;
what would you do?"

~ Pink Floyd "The Final Cut"

I feel that the emotions behind a poem are like flames that burn deep down inside of our souls, and occasionally, they need to be released. Some artists use paint, oil and canvas to express themselves.  Others use the pen. I first started writing when I was 17 years old. For me, it was a way to release my pent up feelings and put down on paper some of my deepest and darkest feelings. I kept most of my writings private, but after a time, I began sharing them with my friends and found that many of them could relate to my writings.  Some of them were even inspired to begin writing their own poems while others decided it was time to share what they had created.

These are some of my favorite works. Some are mine, some of my friends, and others are from some of the great poets of our time.  Enjoy!
