Poet Introduction

I wish I knew what to say. I try again every day. I am plagued with the need to explore the surreal, or just to think in a way I haven't thought about before. But I never really know what to say, but I still try every day.

Favorite Poets/Writers

Rainer Maria Rilke, Rumi, Billy Collins, Nick Flynn, Pablo Neruda, Edgar Allen Poe

About Me

Read Full
Teetering on the edge of attempting to see clearly and stumbling into complete insanity, I throw words against mirrors and let them spill into Rorschach shapes; reflections of our greatest unknowns as interpreted by ego and id...I want to make something truly beautiful. Even just once. Even just in the eyes of one person, even for just a moment. And you can't paint a rainbow without a raincloud. You can't sing a song without silence. You will never be everything until you know what it means to be nothing. Also, sometimes I am just full of shit.

Sometimes you just have to let a string be a string. Let a sunrise just be a sunrise. Stop searching for meaning where there is none. Embrace the chaos and start putting your footprints in the sand. Time and space will erase any trace of your existence in the end, stop trying to leave a mark in the history books and start leaving memories to warm you over the years you fade against the churning oceans and endless starlit nights.

"The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry." -Ernest Hemingway
