I started writing in 1985, the same time as learning to play music. The most active bands and roles in each are:
Drummer - Imagined Perils
Keyboards - Response; In The Kitchen
Guitar - A&D (Arwen and Dad)

Carl Roussell Poems
Again With Hope.
I gave you all I could stand, fell down, then
A Waiting World.
Life will never show 'cause all you ever do is sit and look outside through your window
A House Made Of Glass.
You shouldn't throw stones when you live in a house made of glass. There are no secrets when you live in a house made of glass.
Sit With Me.
I search my life for happiness, but all I find is loneliness, I cry myself to sleep tonight, dreaming of a friend I do not have.
Hurt And Healing.
So you have tried them all, ways to avoid the call from where you don't want to be. So you have used the knife
A fragrance in the air Of your love, of your rose, Ferried on a gentle breeze. A love both hard and soft;
A Bird (Tanka #1) .
I hear a bird sing, The sound, a sweet melody. Will it sing for me? Gliding to a perch so near,
Your Opinion (Tanka #6) .
I would never tell you to hold your tongue, don't talk, be quiet for me. Too many have been silenced.
Not always is there a way out, so you keep your voice pitched low. Maybe they won't take notice and give you some peace in there,
Music, For a while lost, For a while so quiet, Now seen moving my heart again.
Will Today Be My Last?
A letter came in the mail to answer my nations call, There is a need, so it said, For our boys to fill the boots of men
Misunderstanding (Cinquain #5) .
You felt, you thought I knew, but I didn't. Did I come across as cold, unfeeling?
There is in me a man, one who cares and feels, and yes, one who is afraid, of you, and because of you.
My Dear Friend
Hello my dear friend,
Though life has been quite busy
It's good to see you.
To spend a moment with you
Just to share with each other.
