For years I have found joy, comfort and therapy in expressing myself through the manipulation of words. On this page you will find, in ascending order, a smattering of samples from the attempts - some around fifteen years old, some only a few months. I am intentionally refraining from explanation of the poems; while I do believe written art should be understood from its original meaning, I also believe poetry is an experience. Additionally, because they are so personal, I will leave them to explain themselves.

Indeed, these are my diary; these are my emotions. I hope they make you think, and I hope you can enjoy them.
