About Me





Get your own valid XHTML YouTube embed code


I'm an amateur poet who's been writing for about three and a half years. Some of my influences include Edgar Allan Poe, Paul Laurence Dunbar, Margaret Atwood, and Mary Oliver. The majority of my writing consists of simple, metered rhyming verse, but I also write free verse, prose poetry, diary entries, essays, and personal rants. Feel free to leave honest, constructive reviews of my work. I'll occasionally send read request, but they're just my way of letting my friends know that I've posted something ... ignore them if you wish.

Refrain from sending friend requests if we've had no interaction. They will be declined.

I don't own any of the images used. Most of them come from Google Images.

Thank you for stopping by!

Ah, William. I feel sad that you of all people here had to experience the blockade 😶 😑
I know the feeling. But trust me, just block them back. They're not worth wasting your thoughts on...
Chin up, dear fellow.

Just wanted to thank you for writing about Paul Laurence Dunbar. I wanted to leave a review but was not able to do so. I grew up and still work in Lynchburg, Virginia, where Dunbar Middle School is located. It was named after this much "underrated poet." Dunbar High School opened in 1923 and represented the fulfillment of a request by the black community to the all white school board to create a new black high school. It has since become a middle school. He was definitely recognized and appreciated within the black community.

Thank goodness you are still here William! I look forward to reading your works, again. Serah, she was pretty special here on WC. Not many read her work, but she was brilliant & kind hearted, ornery too. lol
I glad you remember her. ( :
