Time for some shameless self-promotion and exploitation of my ability to put words on a website to which I don’t give a red cent.
I’m a poet. In all truth, I’ve been enjoying poetry in one form or another for many years now. Music is an integral part of my life, it’s almost always going. The lyrics are something I routinely look up, and I have always enjoyed finding the meaning behind the music, so I suppose it’s only appropriate that I start putting some menaing and style into my own words.
This is actually something my sister inspired me to get into. She is a poet herself and would always send me her work for input, opinions, or pointers…the latter of which she rarely needed.
Once I actually started writing, many people started to come together and help me out with my craft, always ready with an encouraging word, a positive suggestion, and anticipation for more of my writing. Were it not for this ‘independent collaboration,’ this conspiracy of friends and family, I doubt I’d still be writing today. I owe them all a debt of gratitude I’ll never be able to repay.
My deviantART Poetry Page: My own site. Everything from protest poems to breakups (quite a few of those, actually), stuff from my own head, collaborations, rants, and the beginnings of a poetry series. I’m also trying to learn how to sketch, so keep an eye out for that in the future.
Phoenixtx’s poetry page: one of the poets/conspirators I spoke of before. Her work is brilliant and a solid inspiration for my own — check her out.
Shivarra’s poetry page: another inspiration, she moves between light fantasy to Edgar Allen Poe-esque horror to personal grief overcome with the grace and ease of a pro.
CyborgGold’s deviantART page: some poetry, mostly photography from a man with talent.
AzKitten’s deviantART page: Another artist, this one’s a sketch artist with some amazing works in her gallery.
Neilsama’s deviantART page: Another illustrater, Mr. Neil (as I know him) favors a more cartoon-esque style, which he pulls off with excellent (seemingly effortless) skill.
A special thanks to those listed here, and to those who worked off dA, my sis, grandmother, mother, and everyone elso who has commented directly to the poet in personal communications.
Anyhow, I look forward to seeing you on dA! Please drop a note if you have an account, I’d love to hear from you.
