I've been writing poems on this website since I was thirteen, so please excuse my earlier work.
Also- pretty much none of my own poems reflect my own views. I don't have a veteran heart. I don't have an ex-boyfriend like a computer. And I most certainly didn't take part in the Great Escape.
A side thing: If you try to look at any of my poems and find that everything but the title has been removed, that means that I have selected that poem to be in the poetry book I am writing and hoping to get published. I still keep it on Poetry Critical because I want to be able to view previous comments. Sorry for any inconvenience.
