The Waltz of the Wisterian Night or The Waltz of Wisteria’s Velvet: A.D. May 14, 2019
This poem isn't complete. At least it doesn't feel that way to me at the moment. I'm trying to get back into metered poetry and this was one of my first attempts to get back into that style. This was written about a night that I was riding my bike ar (More)
Too Many Animals: A.D. May 2, 2019
I don't really know how to explain this one. It's a bit of a doozy. I wrote this a couple days ago and it just sort of happened. Think surreal Lewis Carroll but really not. I can't think if a way to describe what this is but you know, you should prob (More)
Candy Floss A.D. February 22, 2019
Greetings yet again! This is a poem that I wrote on the 22nd of February 2017, and have since come back to many many times. I was doing archery with a friend when the sky suddenly exploded with color. I literally ran around excitedly and copied down (More)

The Fountains at d'este: A.D. April 24, 2019
To bring my blog back to a happier note, this poem is about an experience I had whilst in Italy. In the little city of Tivoli there is a great villa with vast expansive gardens full of fountains. I toured most of it and it was one of the best places (More)
Heavy: A.D. April 10, 2019
I feel bad putting up yet another dark poem, but this is just how I've been feeling, and it's all I have been able to write about so I'm sorry if it's a lot. I'll try to post something more cheery next time. But at the present moment, this is what I (More)
Float: A.D. March 28, 2019
Hello all. This poem is a bit darker than most. As most of you know, I suffer from depression and anxiety. I use art as a way to express that and my frustration with how I feel. I want to leave this poem up for interpretation but I will give some con (More)
Two Roads: A.D. March 28, 2019
Greetings again everyone. This poem was for an assignment in my creative writing class. The assignment was to create a poem of at least 25 lines that begins with the famous opening line, "Two roads diverged in a yellow wood," to Robert Frost's The Ro (More)
