You don’t need to know me
To know me.
All you need to do
Is read my words,
Because the answer
Is hidden in the ink.

A Writer's life, a Poet's life is really all that simple to understand.

All you have to do is look in the words and feel the phrases that are being expressed.

Hey guys, thank you all so much for the comments!

Maybe sometime I'll have my own website out and hopefully my own (small) publication.

Currently, I'm working on another poem that I'm falling in love with.

That was very refreshing in its own way to me it was the epitome of hidden depth, a quality that is seldom found in these times
