I started writing when I was about 19 years old, mainly love poems as cheesy as it may sound; and my work still reflects that style. In early to mid 2012 I suffered the loss of my muse which had been writing and videoconferencing with me online; it hit me very hard, and I found the best was through it was to channel the energy into poems written "to her." Although I doubt she ever read any of their content, the poems were archived and published as my first book of poetry, Please Don't Touch. Since then I have written numerous other books and small booklets on various themes, but the strongest two have stayed with "religion," and "the muse."
Poetry has given me a chance to speak to people in ways that I would not know how to do otherwise; people respond to poems differently, some are sad, some are lusty, and a very few of mine are light spirited and free. Each poem has its own character. I like the feeling of reaching out to people through my words and knowing that I have touched them. But the main reason I create poetry isn't for the reaction of people, it's something internal to me; my "internal muse" you might call it. She is perfect in form and function; Beauty incarnate. I write to her my words of love, and to death and hell I write my sorrow.
The direction I would like to take my poetry is to write more of what I feel and less of what I think. I believe I do a pretty good job of this already, but I'd like to continue practicing. Sometimes I think myself out of writing because the words are nonsense or embarrass me. I'd rather like to be able to write what I feel and hell with what people will take it for.
