More About Me

What I want you to know about me...

Hi! I’m Meg.

Poetry has been my saving grace as it has helped me through some really tough times. Most of my poems are personal.

I love reading, writing, gaming, being random and howling at the moon. I’m a music junkie , I listen to anything and everything.

Loves:
♥ fantasy, especially vampires and werewolves.
♥ steampunk
♥ Assassin's Creed
♥ vikings
♥ eating cheese
♥ watching the moon (and howling at it)
♥ anime

p.s. I think ninjas are wicked and Star Wars rocks :-).

“Books, I found, had the power to make time
stand still, retreat or fly into the future.” ~ Jim Bishop

“All children, except one, grow up. They soon know that they will grow up, and the way Wendy knew was this. One day when she was two years old she was playing in a garden, and she plucked another flower and ran with it to her mother. I suppose she must have looked rather delightful, for Mrs Darling put her hand to her heart and cried, ‘Oh, why can’t you remain like this for ever!’ This was all that passed between them on the subject, but henceforth Wendy knew that she must grow up. You always know after you are two. Two is the beginning of the end.”
~ J. M. Barrie, Peter Pan
