"All madmen have something to say, often though those things can not be expressed in words. Most are known as monsters, the rest- artists." Me
"We all have flaws. We all have demons, defects, and desires. But it's how a person deals with them that defines them." Me

I am Red ink.
I am a poet, a dark romantic, and thinker.
My poetry is mostly dark, ambigious, philosophical, melancholic, critical, and straightforward. Common things i write about are insanity, dark romance, struggle, gothic fantasies (not the teen s**t either), religion, philosophy, and the supernatural. Though most of my work has a very melancholic hue, a lot of it also contains a rather positive message. Seldom will i ever write something "light", but it does happen. Also, i sometimes write about personal things.. I am mostly a dark romantic, but once in a while i will post something on the "horror side". At times my poems can get pretty extreme, graphic, anti-religious, or just plan twisted. And so i suggest heeding the occasional "mature warning" on some of my poems. Also, i occasionally write short stories.
I sometimes have random flares of anger and sadness, and don't like to be bothered during them. Just don't pay attention to me when I'm in a bad mood, I tend to be a bit of a psycho. I am for the most part nice, just not the most stable. I have a dark sense of humor and am often very blunt and direct. Some people take it the wrong way, but I usually mean well.
Things i like- Music, poetry, classical literature, dark fashion, finding new bands to listen to, writing, helping others, talking, thinking, philosophizing, horror movies, zombies, vampires, demons, reading, shooting guns, collecting knives, ranting, blaring music, honest people, blunt people, silly people, and randomness.
I like when people send me reading requests, so send me all you want. But do keep in mind that i dont always jump onto them right away, i usually wait a while and let them biuld up before reading any of them. So do not be suprised to recieve late reviews from me.
