Biography of Daniel Richards
i am a writer who has found inspiration from my bipolar disorder. poetry has been an outlet for me to vent my feelings emotions and the rut of an illness that has such amazing highs and disabling lows. emotions i believe are they key to all understanding of both human and natural
characteristic's and behavior as we are not dissimilar.
And also inanimate objects, i believe all of everything contain an energy a life force if you please with thought patterns. strange but thats just me.
i am also pushed write poems in reference to life as we know it today, the evils the goods the gods and the myths, and sacred geometry visions.
may i add also my own personal favorites are added with a star so they are easier too find, please check back regularly as more added almost daily
Oh and Please, Please please comment on me as a poet, it would be of great help
i mainly post first drafts here, just so everyone knows
I must add that some of my poetry or word art as i like to call it can be at times graphic in its content such as the subject of suicide for example, so i would like to take this opportunity to apologize for any offense or upset i may off caused. poetry is my outlet and unfortunately with the nature of my illness, i have, in the past attempted suicide and this is a very prominent life experience for me so i feel the need to express the emotions.
again, im sorry for any upset or offense
Also 90% of my work is first and only draft.
please peruse my poem collection and feel free to add comment as we all need improving in every way as perfection rarely exists.
to the reader.
at the risk of asking too much, would you be kind enough to give my poems a rating, good or bad it will help me aim my writing in the right direction
Thank you and enjoy (i hope)

Daniel Richards Poems
***the Day My Baby Brother Died***
I remember that dreadful morning, Waking to the beast, Time had stopped, the news reckless A beautiful boy amazing but deceased
*a Beauty Bliss*
I shouldn’t look I shouldn’t touch But your beauty does entrance A mind that searches from first glance To end attraction that cannot start
*a Dreamy Wonder*
When I fall into my land Of slumber, I come across My mind and in this place Of dreamy wonder, I am
***our Loves Birthmark***
We made a mark on October 3rd, between you and me this was the birth but this to me was the start of our universe, This day it all began, one day one place we came together me and you, a day with a birthmark that reminds me of our love you loving me and me loving you January, February, march, April and may half way there to that special date
**pink Ribbon Black**
I’m a restless and corrupted one Hoping for eternal darkness And an end to they bright shining sun
*a Flaming Arrogance*
An internal fire burns, Lights my life & is in all I learn Fallen victim to pure dis concern, I pull back the boundaries, to see between the lines
*seeds Of Change*
I find, as we go, we’re becoming more lost, As the days go by In our time, we know that time will change But things don’t seem ok,
*and It Was Her That Made Me Surrender P...
Her taste, what an other worldly pleasure was All I ever could’ve wished for an unearthly treasure And it was too me that she surrendered
**everything Is Broken*
Making lies Breaking society, Straining strings Lost sobriety;
*barrel, Of A Loaded Gun*
Can you help me…, a lost soul on the run? I’ve searched everywhere but heaven And the end of my road has nearly come I can’t go back and there’s no where ahead
Red dress, red shoes, A dancing moonlight reflecting from you A diamond laced necklace, so cheap but expensive Shining on through,
Watched but unaware, that I flow Right passed, underneath the shimmering still Which lay upon my upper where You stand before me with your stare
*an Unmistakable Void*
The day you left I followed you And I'm calling, I miss this lady now I’m falling And I’m hurting,
*would You Say Yes? *
Would you say yes to a very first date? Anticipation I really couldn’t wait Would it be wrong to want to hold your hand? Or brush the hair from your face with the very same hand
We where spinning into darkness
The ropes had become undone
Wrestling with our restlessness
The truth began to unravel & soon would be undone
Drawing on my selfishness
I ducked my head and run
From the fiery waves appalling
Igniting from our lying sun
