VERSE

Here you can find my poetry selections. I often tackle subjects that are personal to me. Much of what I write in this regard cannot be tackled in other mediums,

or may simply be more effective as verse.

 

Many of these pieces consist of stories from my life.

RECENT PIECES

The following pieces have been made available via my YouTube Channel.  I read all of the poems myself. Text versions of these poems are made available on my blog at www.EricsOutHouse.com. Print versions of these poems will be made available when my next collection is released in the fall of 2018.
