Welcome to my world.

This collection of poems, if it were to have a title, would be ' A Short Candle in the Long Darkness.'

If you are wanting to know more about me, then get use to disappointment.....


Dedication:

All that I write is always dedicated to all of those I have found that have struggled to find their answers, as well for any in this world who somehow keep going, even when they don't even know why. I carry all of you in my heart:

My family
Randy & Jen
Nadine
Annie
Brian
Jo (Maiden)
Paula
Peggy
Jeremiah
Robert
Alisha & Craig
Stephanie
Stacy C.
Stacy M.
Camille
Sarah


To those musicians whose songs and music have sustained me and given me strength, or has taken me away for just a moment even in the greatest despair:

Collective Soul 'Shine'
Live 'Lightning Crashes'
Peter Gabriel
Shelia Chandra
Tori Amos
Henry Rollins
Eva Cassidy
Diana Krall
Holly Cole
Toni Price
Nanci Griffith
Yoav
A Fine Frenzy
and all the others...

To Henry and to all those I have known who eventually lost the strength to keep up the fight; and to the lost I have not met still out there searching in the darkness.:

Do not ever think you failed or were cowards: you had a strength and courage to keep going as long as you did. I light the candle to keep your memories alive, and to light the way of those still wandering. You were and still are loved.
