Hi, I'm Michael. I'm twenty-five, happily married, and struggle with anxiety. I've always enjoyed making music, but I've always had a love of words. As self therapy, I keep a memo with me at all times, and this is where 90% of the poems I post will come from. Sporadic, random thoughts. I don't want to just borrow these thoughts in a notebook anymore. I desire to share them.
I am a weaver of words. Make no mistake I said words, not wisdom. I am a coniessuer of simulies, and synonyms. My shelves are lined with glass beakers and tubes containing syllables, but I am no alchemist. Make no mistake, though, I am a poet. I will reach for the sharpest edges of your mind, and whether I come home with lifelong scars or your lifelong adoration - I don't mind. No, I don't behave like someone with something to say, I don't pry. I just sit and sift my words through mesh until only the most complex remain. Because cliche is a killer, it won't impress. How many others are out there right now with calices between their thumbs and index fingers speaking the same words I am? If you feel like you have already heard this before, it's because you haven't. At the end of a stanza or the conclusion of a verse all of the colors start to fade. These pictures I have painted in your thoughts are temporary. Make no mistake, though, the feelings are endless.
