i have decided to have a journal dedicated to just poetry and short stories. i don't know how successful it will be, but i needed somewhere public to post these "visions of my soul" for others to read, consider, and comment. they have been sitting in a private, offline journal for over 2 years and i figured it was time for them to "come out of the journal closet".
be forewarned that a lot of these poems are from dark moments in my life. hopefully i will find some that reflect happier times. i am now happy in my life and feel that these poems of my emotions and feelings of yesteryear cannot hurt me. they do, of course, bring a tear or two, reflecting on sadder times in my life.
please take your time, read, reread, and take what you want or need from each.
