A Poem

Welcome to where I write

Welcome to what sometimes keeps me up

And at others helps me sleep at night

Welcome to where people gawk

More exposed here than in my underwear

Bearing more than I care at times

Whether in prose or rhymes

If you know me in the “real world”

Be prepared to be confused and scared

But be glad you’ve been invited

Because what I write here, in the real world I often hide it

As weak tales that tell you everything and nothing about me

All at once

A genius

A mystic

And a dunce

As I make words dance and play across the page

Exposing the world to moments of pure happiness and rage

Welcome to the show

I hope you enjoy it
