White Paint: Passion, Pain, and Poetry
Self Published: 2004
This book is a compilation of poems that were written in Bowling Green and Cleveland, Ohio, from the ages of 19-23. Most of these poems were written to combat depression during and after college, as I struggled to figure out what the next step in my life was going to be. A number of the poems were written about ex-girlfriends and break-ups. While they sound amateur and immature looking back, they were a great practice in expression and released a lot of stress.
