I'm a writer, I pull from everything i see and experience to write. The may reason i use this site is as online storage for my poems, just in case. Feel free to comment or email me if you'd like to contact me.


No man knows the burdens of another, The ripping ache Attached to life As center of his universe No man knows The dreams of another, Stalled by reality Plundering endlessly Tattered to shards Falling apart Locked in his heart Shrouded in shadow Sheltered from daylight Hidden from plain sight Hidden from Pain's slight Secrets by nature, What was once held sacred Dreams of dreams All thats left Dreams of dreams All thats left

Love your work...
I was in Paris in July, and somehow missed reading your poems!

An interesting piece Ridge - I'm guessing most of us here will find a lot to identify with in the starving artist :) Much as I prefer to write poetry than other forms, I confess it isn't the money that attracts me........

Best wishes
