Yo, hi, hello. I'm just your standard sarcastic, cynical, satirical guy who doesn't care much for acting in an 'age appropriate' manner, whatever that means. I write poetry and short stories. Not much else to say, really. Ciao!

Why do I make promises I know I’ll never keep And why do I only make them To myself? I swear I’ll do better Try harder next time Con myself into thinking I’ll get it right this time And when I don’t I tell myself It’s a victimless crime But the conman inside me Forgets […]
