In August of 2011, I had a life changing event happen and consequently spent two weeks in the hospital under lockdown and supervision for suicidal tendencies. Upon release I moved in with friends and started a new life. On November 11, I was at work and had a first line for a poem and could not find anything to write it down on. I decided to make a note to myself on my cell phone. When I came home I was taking the line off my phone to continue writing and had the idea for PoextS. I would write short poems as somewhat therapy and send them via text to friends and family. I sent my first one on November 12. Now one year later to the date, I have written 1,000 PoextS. I hope you may enjoy and be enlightened by them.
