    honestly, i'm not influenced much by any actual poets. or at least modern day poets.

    i'm into the edgier, angsty, dark, abstract type shit...usually i'll just play some nirvana or live and the ideas just seem to start flowing out of completely nowhere.

    I wouldn't say I am inspired by any popular or even famous poet, alive or dead.

    Life and Music in general inspires me to right. No poet has actually had a sort of inspiration on me when it came to writings. I have read something that have made me want to sit down and jot something. But for the main part it's life and music. The simple things in life.

    Just wrote a poem today about my daughter. She was just laying in the bed sleep like she always been doing for nearly five years. But something just hit me and I had to write.


    I'm feeling all mushy and shit now. Let me stop

    good song good song

    I agree though, the simple things in life. Some of us'd be suprised by how much we see on a regular basis, and always think about, but don't ever get to writing about. I bet I'd be writing more if I did that.

    what inspires me is people i meet on a daily basis and how they precieve me.
    and the daily burdens of living in eternal hunger.
