    I Am Quite Sure.

    I don't know why, but I seem to be a bit more complicated than most. I am a little bit of everything. At times I am utterly docile and innocent, at times I am dark and sarcastic, sometimes I am downright aggressive, sometimes I am insubordinate, sometimes I am a bit eccentric...

    Subtraction

    Take away the colored contacts, the blonde hair and 38C's and what do you see? Do you truly know who I am or what makes me tick? Or are you a shallow person who blithely goes through life never disturbing the surface waters to see what lies beneath? In which case you are doing...

    But They Will Soon

    I will write, express, create, and produce until all that I am, all that I feel, all that I believe is so sewn into the fabric of the universe, that there will be nobody who knows my name that has not been touched by my soul.  I will emblazen myself on the souls of those...

    An anarchist. A sinner. A carnal, violent, viscous, instinctive, passionate, articulate, free thinking writer who's not kept complacent by the rules of the game. They just gave me a number when I was born. I organize a humble nest with the scraps they throw me once they've...
