– Me – I’m not a poet, I’m not an author

  But these words oft flow like water

  To England I was bestowed

  But my mind is my abode

Hi I’m The Lonely Recluse, what can I say really? I’m now Twenty something, I’m a guy from England, still living with my parents in the North West of the land. I’ve been to Uni, dropped out, come home worked here and there. I’ve suffered from insomnia, depression, self-harm and nearly been a suicide (twice). I’m now healed, or whatever you want to call it, from all that. I think some of my poetry has dealt with that stuff at some point.
I now find myself back in education, maybe that’ll get dealt with from time to time.
It’s a long time since a friend once turned to my and told me to turn my pent up emotion into poetry. I took it more as a challenge than the friendly advice it was meant. Eventually I had so many pieces of paper lying around I thought I’d collect them together into one place, that being …

 – the blog – A place for my verse to sleep

And for critics to come and weep

Yeah basically I’m just setting this up as a place to have my poems and occasional prose and hopefully to get your opinions on them. If there is anything else you want to know about me, please ask – if I’m happy to answer, then I shall, if not then I’ll say that is the case. Please comment on my works. Thanks.

  1. Recluse is correct, a mystery. Well glad you chose to share your poetry though saddened by the fact you hide the most basic of infromation. As this is your choice i will bid adue and wish you the best.

    • Hide the most basic information in what sense? Ask and if I’m happy to answer I shall. To be honest I didn’t really know what to write so I just put what I did.

  2. Gender, location (not like address or anything) the reason why you write perhaps age, you know the basics, if need be you can view mine for basic concept. Just helps the reader know the writer abit and see if they can relate 🙂

  3. Now, I understand you a little better you are as I was in High school. though those years were only 6 or so ago I remember them well. All I can say is you do great work for your age and should continue writing, one day you may have the chance to make otherwise ignorate eyes view upon your greatness. Good luck my friend.
