i am an aspiring writer of sorts. i've been composing poetry since my teenaged years. i am realising the acclaim & awards won't offer me true love or happiness. i am attracted towards the dark. anything melancholy, ethereal, or somewhat romantic is something i am entranced by. i soak up music like an emotional sponge. i adore british post-punk, new wave bands & other worldly acts such as the Cure, Depeche Mode, New Order, the Sundays, Peter Gabriel, Genesis, the Chameleons, Echo & the Bunnymen as well as the Smiths. i enjoy collecting vinyl records as well. i never knew the name of true love. she seemed to burn my heart out. i don't know if she exists in an ordinary bliss. i will continue to delve my soul for my inspiration. alas godspeed young scribes. don't let the b**tards grind u down. alex says hello. everybody needs ultraviolence sometimes.
