Biography of Bill Darrah
My poetry has primarily been motivated by personal experiences with other people in my life-friends, family, and loved ones mostly. I didn't even care much for poetry until I fell in love for the 1st time in December 2000. Plato has a quote that is the manifestation of my aspiring passion for poetry that says, 'At the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet.' I wanted the content of my poetry to not only sound intelligent and elaborate in design, but also to convey a clear, concise, and universal understanding for people of all educational backgrounds to appreciate while hopefully becoming greatly intrigued by its impact on their hearts and minds to become poets themselves or at least desire a much more sophisticated level of deepening comprehension of the powerful beauty/fascination for words!

Self-Inducing Provocative Thoughtfulness
(When you read this poem I highly recommend you read the 1st and last paragraphs only because it is my belief you the reader will either have a much stronger appreciation for this poem's message as well as for the middle paragraph or you will have as much of an appreciation for this poem the way it is written with the middle paragraph not adding or taking away from the meaningful message written. Additionally, you will notice a striking resemblance of word choice in the 1st and last paragraphs not included in the middle paragraph-this is because I used the same 35 nouns provided to me and arranged them in differing syntax, thus added more words needed to make complete thoughts of poetry.) Sometimes love is something actions do To create confusing relationships we choose to
