I Meant to Tell You, but for the Things I Never Say

I meant to write a letter, but

The meaning lost its sway;
And though I always meant to ask you,
I always feared you wouldn’t stay.

I am not sure how my writing styles are characterized, nor am I overly concerned about it. I am immensely enthusiastic about music and often connect better with songs than I do people. I also have an intense appreciation for quality wines and whiskies, frequently consuming them in excess. I like things that smell good and struggle to manage the symptoms of a life-long relationship with depression. So, why "grumpygorman"? Spend some time here and find out...
