i did not know what to say

shyness is crazy

it didn’t do me

any good

all those years

of being afraid

of rejection



in fact

when i was

lucky enough

to walk

with a girl

in high school



i didn’t


if i should






when i didn’t

which was

almost always

i saw


in her eyes

when we

went our

own ways

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
