...Introducing the Masochist...

Author/illustrator of Whispers of the Goddess & The Quit Smoking Express. Graduate of the Long Ridge Writing Group & Institute for Writers


The hot molten metal

The silver slivering blade

In the shivering silence

The masochist is made

Fire burns like lava

Iron kettles cannot contain

The yearning for wholeness

Is what now remains

Fear leads to nothing

Nothing no longer dwells

Wrapped in barbed illusions

Where faith will prevail

Under harsh round bulbs

Beneath a surgeons blade

Steps forth a warrior

The masochist is made
