    The haunting evaluation
    of each negligible detail

    The silence is deafening
    revealing phobias untold

    It has been four years since I have sat down with pen and paper in an attempt to convey my emotions and repair my fractured soul. I no longer find myself broken, no longer in need of repair, Its only fitting that I should share my new found inspiration.

    He came into her life
    Like a fractured grain of sand
    He made her question things
    She believed to already understand

  5. Appeal to Authority

    This is another in my occasional series of logical fallacies. Appeal to Authority (Latin argumentum ad verecundiam) is quite popular, and some people think that it operates as a trump card. If old So-and-So says so, then it must be true. Well, that's not how one wins an argument; the one with the best facts and the logic wins.
