Pittsburgh, PA (Vocus) July 8, 2010
Cross and Key was started with one poem entitled ‘The Battle in Darkness” which was essentially a short autobiography written in stanzas and rhymes. Eventually the poem was broken into four shorter, separate, more-detailed poems that expressed my feelings and perspective at specific points in time. Each poem afterward was relevant to some ordeal or epiphany in my life that, in order not to lose it, I recorded on paper or on my computer. Sometimes, I wrote one to cheer up a friend, and sometimes I wrote to cheer myself up. All of my poems are significant to me.
