I want to be a published poet. I live in the San Francisco Bay area and attend college in Boston, Massachusetts, where I study English and Nursing. I have been published in Stylus, a literary publication at my school.

I'd be delighted if you took some time to read my work. I welcome criticism and thoughts, I find it to be very helpful and necessary to my growth as a young poet.

Thank you.

Also, I have a blog at http: //theblindassassin723.blogspot.com/. I post art and poems by published folk that inspire me to write. more »

    I never knew that you could write like this. I always knew that you had a way with words and loved to write, but this is really amazing. Thanks for giving me a chance to read your stuff.

fifty candles melting into red velvet cake
my eternity waiting
to be extinguished—fade to black
even if the gray frizzy tendrils are unwieldy and obvious
in a mane of burnt auburn
they found me out
even if the keys aren’t in the ignition—cast in the basket with mickey
and tennis balls and winnie the pooh—
why can’t I ...
