Biography of A . T . Perkins
I am a beggining poet. I just fell in love with poetry one day, like it had fell out of the sky. I can remember Poetry classes in school, but they didn't appeal to me. Basiclly, I had to be force fed Poetry, and one day I woke up!

Been Gone So Long
Been gone so long, but
I've been right here
A shell of a person
Going thru the Motions, The wrong way.
