About Me

If my writings are sorted by date, then between "Low" and "To Remember..." was a two year hiatus. Before I wrote and finished a piece within an hour. Now it may take me months.
I don't put my poems in any category but general and explicit if it applies. I feel it may give the reader a bias. I don't care how long your comments are, and in relation, I don't leave involved/long comments. But will if asked. Also, I will more than likely not comment: anything in the "Love" section, works with pictures or songs, anything with text that isn't fairly simple.
I often write of religion, nature, depression; loneliness; hate; love; failure; death; suicide; poverty; bitterness; alcohol abuse; isolation: general lackings and yearings/the human condition. Or my experience with life thus far.

My personal songs will have a '' * '' by them.

 Bands/projects of mine:
-As Reality Fades, Golden Dawns E.P.:
-Waiting to Fail:
 "... art may be said to be God's grandchild."  -Dante Alighieri (The Divine Comedy: Inferno XI, 105)
The best art comes from pain... .
