About Me and My Poetry

I write poetry about things that affect me personally, whether physical occurrences in my life, or emotional ones. 100 percent of my poems are written with emotion, but less than 10 percent of them are based purely on imagination. That means that if you can ferret out and see through the metaphors, you can see directly into my life, and even more than that, into my soul. I find that thought scary sometimes. But I am not one to give in to fear! I use poetry as a way to sort and manage thoughts and feelings. That means that a lot of my poetry is based on inconvenient truths, things that are bothering me in my life. I feel everything to the full extent, all at once. I am not afraid to feel. I believe that the more you feel, the stronger you are; and the more you feel the sad things, the sooner you can feel better. I always say, give me 2 days and a heartfelt poem, and I will be fine again, guaranteed. Somehow once it is down on paper, it doesn't linger in my thoughts anymore. That means I sort through things very quickly. Through one obstacle and on to the next! (update: apparently it doesnt work for everything) Since my poetry is written while my feelings are still raw, I pour a lot of passion into them. However I am not just a poet, I am an artist, and think as such. That means I write however I feel; I don't follow any set rules. I have always been that way. So, enjoy!

Stick a fork in my arrogance-

Best poem ever, by George! Since he doesnt repost :-P

Childhood wounds left unattended
are like broken panes of glass
trampled into ever smaller pieces,
embedding deeper in the flesh
and more difficult to find.
