Measuring by the hours I've written I am professional. My goal is to share my work with as many people that can read it, as far as the internet may reach with it. I hope if you are moved you will share this blog with others, and perhaps buy my books.

Whatever the result, thank you for viewing this blog. I cannot express how greatly I appreciate the many people, from many places upon the earth, who have visited.

Black reflections

The reasons
For my toxic
Existence is
My heart is broken
Into pieces
My soul is
From the grieving
For my lost seasons
Of youth
Spent in
Intense retrospection
From a cracked mirror
How am I
To reassemble
My being
From the start
I was crippled
That my temple
Was filled
With the liars
The forsaken
I suffered treason
A betrayal
Of epic power
And all I needed
Is a sleep
Consuming me
In a glowing dream
Instead there is
An oncoming storm
Of delirious thoughts
Betraying me
With enemies
Who refuse
To be gentle
With my fragile form
And now is the hour
That I pay the toll
To the ferryman
Why didn't I do this
