The Dark Side of My Mind: The Complete Collection
I started writing poetry at the age of 16 for an English assignment. An assignment I was less than thrilled about. As it turns out, writing those first two poems opened up the floodgates, and allowed me to express all the emotions and thoughts that I was unable to express to those around me. It was written therapy. I came to enjoy writing, and over the years, my work has expressed a myriad of thoughts, emotions and dreams. I hope that within these pages you will find something that speaks to you, and helps you feel like you are not alone in the world. I have written about love, hate, pain, fear, loss, dreams, wishes, and all the things that I had inside myself, and that you may have inside of you. It is also my hope that reading these poems will not only give you a sense of belonging, but perhaps inspire you to write poetry of your own. It can be a wonderful release in times when you feel overburdened and alone. It is a wonderful art, and should be both created and enjoyed bar far more people.
