Moments of Unconsciousness
It is with much love & pain that these poems have
been brought to life. I never set out to write them.
They were written in those
“Moments of Unconsciousness”
in which words would come together to amplify
some point in my life that I had reached.
I hope that you enjoyed reading my poems.
