I love poetry, it is the furthest thing from my profession and I think most people who know me would be totally shocked to find out I read and write poetry. I simply do it for my self. It makes me feel better some times, or allows me to put things in perspective. The reason I chose to put my poetry up on this website is because I started sharing my writing with a select few friends. I was totally shocked at how many of them just nodded and gave that smile of familiarity. What I concluded is that so many people are so similar in our experiences, good and bad, but many of us do not share them with one another because those conversations do not fit into out society. It is my hope that just one person will read something I have written and feel a little less alone.
