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.

Silent echo

Soft touch startles
Blurred spinning world resolves
I plead excusive glances seeking
distraction, solace.
Excuses wither before they begin
Eyes closed I listen to silence
Strength in silence, quiet
communion together.
Eyes closed I see you,
Radiating a smile, twin blue
pools of empathy jolt.
Trapped inside my thoughts.
Trapped inside myself.
Suddenly never alone,
Never unloved.
