This is a collection of Poetry from my journal entries over the past decade. I took a few months to rearrange the work fit with my music. I quickly figured out that most of my writing doesn’t function in the musical sense, but I still wanted to share the collection with the world! I was inspired to write down all my emotions as poems and see if others would enjoy reading them as well. They shift between being quite serious and at other times quirky. The collective themes herein discuss physical and emotional isolation in the twenty-first century, anticipatory anxiety and the fear of death, addiction to negative emotions, self-reflection, love loss, and complete honesty. The lighter works detail daydreaming about the future of humankind through a lens of science fiction and the idea that modern chemistry can be as exciting as the alchemy of old.
