Welcome Readers

Welcome to my writing desk where I share snippets of ideas and stories that I've written.

Songs for the Heavy Soul

All the words used in this collection of poems are lyrics from songs. To me music is fundamental to expressing emotion and the feelings of depression often escape expression.
