About Me

Donít be so sure now.

A picture might lie.

Iím not just a photo.

Iím not just some guy.

Iím not who youíre thinking.

Iím not what youíd guessed.

The Ďmeí in my poems, might tell the tale best.

So take just a tick and look closer to see.

The words that I write tell the most about me.


I'm a sappy, silly, cheesy, hopeless romantic and my poems reflect this, so if the 'lovey-dovey' stuff isn't your thing then you'll likely hate most of these ;) lol

"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a great battle." -Philo of Alexandria "

[He] is gifted, they say. [He] has the gift. A gift with hard labor attached. After inspiration must come the plunge down inner passages, the search which suffocates but liberates: the spelunking where no one could help even if you wanted them to. Instead, plucking souvenirs from those depths, you must keep asking yourself, in a tongue only you can speak, 'What next? But how?' while shapes and colors swirl out of control. A gift, but a subpeona." -Anneli Rufus, "Party of One"
