    The Sparrow (Poem By Me)

    Like dreaming in black and white, with no sound or being in a place with no light, underground, came the memory of years gone, and the passing, so I tried to stop the spawn, and the classing, but the mind is a wild horse, until it's tamed, when falling my cry was hoarse, and...

    Life Blood.

    When people ask me, "Oh, do you still write?" I try to explain to them that it's like asking me if I still breathe. Of course I still write. I'm still alive, I still think; even if you were to take every writing instrument in the world away, I think I would sit and make up...
