This section is for the various pieces I have written over the years that for some reason I got convinced to put online. If I get permission to post other people's work I like (particularly if it inspired any of my pieces), this is where it will go.

If you want to share how you feel about a piece, what you think or if you like something, let me know. If you don't like it, don't read any more. I'm not interested in critiques or ways to improve my writing, this is just something that pops out very occasionally and expresses itself. Sometimes there is accompanying music in my head, but I'm not talented enough to be able to translate that into something that other people can hear just yet.

If you want to reproduce any of this anywhere, in any form, please let me know first.

Only words

When I speak without words, 
I say volumes.
When an utterance leaves my lips,
It is my body that tells the true meaning.
What happens when words are all I have?
What do I do when I cannot touch?
I fumble, I stumble and
I cry,
For I can no longer speak.
