What is Poetry? My Own Little Personal Essay

The closer I get to finishing my book, the more and more I think of publishing, and the more and more I think about the many times I told myself I would publish my poetry.  I have sang this tune to myself many times, and still I have not completed that task.

I didn't think it was possible, but you brought something up out of me that I thought was buried under a mountain of regret and broken hearts.  You were honest, you were pure. And that scared the… Continue reading Your Love Never Existed for Me
