Started writing at age 18 or so.
Caused by inability to communicate as most others seem to. Or a link to the metaphysical world?
Creativity finds me rather than vice versa.
Later poems at least have happy endings, or point to some kind of salvation. My 'Shadow' or negative poems are prefixed with a 'z' so as to relegate them to the back page.
I have a B.A. in French/Russian from LSE, London UK.
Both parents dead, my father was a Spitfire pilot who came to Uk in WW2. My mother a poor, sad, kind, impoverished English gentlewoman of good family. I have one son.
I also write songs, on Myspace and Youtube, under the name 'Bonjazza'.
I live in a small rented flat in London, but my love is the countryside, horse riding once a week keeps misery at bay.
Have worked in education as tutor, teaching assistant, English to foreigners teacher.
My Poemhunter experience: what you read is actually a reflection of yourself: gravitate to misery, and you will get more of the same; gravitate to joyful poem titles, and you will find more happiness.
I've met some very interesting and lovely people on the site from all over the world! Fantastic! Long live Poemhunter.
