DK Dmitriy Kokarev

I am a 22 years old and since i can remember i have been fascinated with poems and the power that they hold. I remember as a child reading poems, even though there were many that i did not understand back then, there was something there that captured me whole. I guess its this love for the written word that led me to where i am now, a student in the Faculty of Humanities at the Notre Dame University, studying English Literature, hoping to one day become known. My style of writting i would personally describe as a free verse and the themes are more or less dark and striking. I view the world around me as a slowly sinking ship, and everyone simply a patient at the hospital waiting for their turn to have the lethal injection. Im not a pessimist, but i guess there were many things in my childhood which simply gave birth to a lot of dark imagery and hate, and this is reflected in my work.
There are days when the world turns and i see the light, somewhat making the day clearer and the clouds part, yet the night is just around the corner and the gloom is there.
Much of my work is inspired by books i have read, movies i have seen or the music that i have heard. There are also poems which are written based on the events that i have lived through.
I hope you like what i have to offer and all commentary is most welcome and appreciated.

Were these poems written in English or were they translated? If so, by whom? Thanks,
Dmitriy is one of the great talents in the world of poetry. I forsee great things ahead. From my first encounter with his work till now, his ability to translate his thoughts and feelings into poetry has never faltered. This is because his execution is equal to his thoughts. And his understanding is equal to his vision. Greenwolfe 1962
