Poet KindOfHeart

I have been writing poetry for about 15  years. Most of my poems express my inner feelings and emotions, and are an intimate baring of my soul, although I write some of a more humourous nature.

Favorite Poets/Writers

John Dunne, William Wordsworth, John Keats, T S Elliott, Dylan Thomas.
I was a public health scientist for forty years before my retirement, working for many years with blood borne and sexually transmitted infections. I am still a part time lecturer at Masters level on virology, public health and epidemiology.

I was introduced to poetry at a very young age by my mother, often poems that might have been thought to be too old for me, and have continued to read poetry throughout my life.

I am bipolar, so at times I feel like I am flying and thoughts and ideas flood my mind, at others I sink into a slough of despondency and self loathing, and my mood can change in an instant. Sadly, in my darkest moments I am subject to feelings of irrational jealousy and rejection.

I am in a long distance relationship with elizabethblack, who is not a poet but just a lover of poetry and my best critic.
