"Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before..." ~'The Raven' by Edgar Allan Poe I'm a poet. I enjoy reading others' poetry, and wish to attain citicism -- both good and bad -- on my poetry, as I retain my right to tell anyone else if I enjoy his or hers, respectively. If you find my poetry or short stories enlightening, please, don't hesitate to tell me. I would love nothing more than to post my works for others' enjoyment. If you don't like Poe, Dickinson, or Shakespeare, and you are irritated by William Faulkner's stream of consciousness, and you dislike strange punctuation and imagery overload, normally of darker scenes...
