Alexander Steen Stewart

Biography of Alexander Steen Stewart

Not terribly much to say to be prefectly honest, I would say that I have lead a bit of a sheltered life so far. I would say that the poet that inspires me most and has the greatest influence when I write would be John Donne, as I also feel very much lured to the perfect spiritual love which Donne often alludes to in his work.
I generally find I'm disappointed with the reality of life as it can never really match up with the idealised perfection of the imagination. Updates

Beautiful Phantom

A heart once broken leads one's eyes to roam,
Just as mine did one Winter day,
My youth ravished eyes swept the room,
And saw her standing, a beautiful cliché;

She turned, and sunlight seemed to shine on me,
Her eyes met mine and a fire blazed,
Unbeknownst to me, my heart's decree;
Standing there, she smiled, leaving me amazed.
