Starlight – Erik Shinker (Perpetually Past Due)

She is celestial,
a fixed point of light
placed in the ether to guide.
A glimmer of hope in the void.
One piece inside
a constellation of eternal splendor,
she is luminescent.
With my Skyward traveler,
I send my love,
ad astra.

I am a Social Worker by day and an artist/writer by night. I use the written word in an attempt to make sense of the secret worlds and dysfunctional dynamics that lurk beneath the facades of our daily interactions. 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...
