I write, more dark than light, because I believe a poem should rip out your still-beating heart and dissect it on the page. This is therapy for me, certainly, but I believe that all of us, from every walk of life, share a common humanity that is full of beautiful, and awful, and incredible flaws. I think that it is this commonality that joins us together, in creative expression in all its forms.

My goal for publishing here, is the hope that you can take away a feeling of not being alone, see that we all hurt and we all struggle from time to time but that we can be unified even when we feel most isolated.

Thanks for reading.
