Poetry (Shadow)


Welcome to the very nucleus of my most fertile conception. Here you will find a collection of poetry fused from the shadows of my bones. Not all of the verse within is dark. Yet, one thing unmistakable is the brutal, yet beautiful, honesty of each write. Including carefully selected art, both chosen audio and live readings, and essence from the deepest soul of a poet. Please accept my blessing to follow the trail of silvery ivy veins below to very nerve center of my creation. And come bleed with me.
