    Hate Writing It, Love What I Learned

    My undergraduate major was poetry writing, but I really chose the major simply because fiction (my original concentration) wasn't working out for me. I did manage to publish poetry in a few small journals, but my senior year I had a professor who was downright mean to me. We knew...

    Love: The Joy That Wounds

    “You try to be faithful And sometimes you're cruel. You are mine. Then, you leave. Without you, I can't cope. And when you take the lead, I become your footstep. Your absence leaves a void. Without you, I can't cope. You have disturbed my sleep, You have wrecked my image. You...

    I was telling a friend here

    that I've written mostly sad poems because the happy sounding ones always sound too cheesy to me. Then I quickly sliced off this bit of cheese..The birdies in the trees, The doggies with no fleas, They all have too much cheese, So stop now, if you please.

    Funniest poem ever written?

    "He took the stars out the sky

    and put them into her eyes. And she looked past the shadows -at summer's white butterflies. Seasons change and people grow, still she waits there making angels in the snow."

    for all Whom troubles and worries hold in thrall. He sings sweet songs of sun and dew And lightens that world for me and you- He opens our hearts- and pain has fled. And memories of childhood live instead. He soothes with the balm of love-bid tears The bitter pain of the...
