A Note from the Author: Writing has been a way for me to process emotions. I wrote the poems in this collection in the early 90's which was a trans-formative period in my life. Current friends are surprised at the dark nature of this collection because they do not reflect the person I am now. One must travel through the darkness to recognize the light. I hope readers can find some meaning in them. I hope you enjoy the poetry. I ask you to take notice of the Creative Commons license. This license allows you to download my poetry and share it with others as long as you give me attribution as the author. You cannot change my poetry in any way nor can you use in for commercial purposes without my permission.
