Poetry is the result of a love for language meeting an unquenchable thirst for catharsis; in the ink soaking into the page lies the emotion that combats description, rebels against restraint, and suspires for liberation. 

Poetry, to me, is one of the most elusive, esoteric, extravagant, and beautiful forms of art within writing. And simply, one of the most difficult. 

It wasn't until I took an American Literature course in college wherein I was able to read, learn, appreciate, and analyze some of the greats that I truly began to acknowledge the power and subtlety within poetry. 

It was never my forte, but alas, I have tried and still continue to try. Listed are my works so far.
