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.


Hanging by a soft chain
Lies a broken, hardened heart.
Smashed by the words
Of people they tried to forget.
It looks so fragile, hanging there,
But steely resolution guards it.
Not many would notice,
But I did.

I tried to mend that broken heart,
Compassion and friendship was what I gave.
But locked away is a picture that
I cannot replace,
For fear that I shall see the heart
Broken again.
