What is a Scribbling? Roget’s College Thesaurus; Gives a verb – Write Carelessly; Scratch, Scrawl. What is a Madman? Roget’s College Thesaurus; A noun – Mad, Crazy, Insane, Rabid, Frantic, and Foolish. Are you using the Universal “Man”? As far as Scribblings and madman are concerned, I prefer those words to writings and crazy guy in the corner. We are all madmen (so to speak) writing carelessly in this world. We are bound by society's definition of who we are and what we do. The book is about the internal battles that we all have had or are experiencing in this existence. I choose to write my fights down on paper and not let them fester in my head. This book contains 5 sections:Poet, Priest, Lover, Thief, and the Vagabond. A description of three sections are below. The Poet’s Section – To be brief, if that is possible for a person of words, this section contains 10 poems that to me represent the power of poetry. They act as therapy for both the reader and the writer. The Poet which is named after that primary character expresses one of the many ways that I feel about writing. I do like to rhyme words. I do like writing when drunk, although that leads to a pocket of mushy poems written on napkins. The most important thing to remember about my poetry is word flow. I am a writer of spoken word poetry. The imagery is important because that paints the picture in the mind of the reader and puts them in the same place as the narrator of the poem. Also, think of these poems as written not by me but rather they represent the madman in all of us. Each of us has felt this way and experienced these feelings no matter how deep we have buried them, or tried to hide them. That is what all my poems do; speak to the truth behind the truth, the part of us that we fear. I have walked in the places that we fear to tread; those places where we are all dead. The Priest’s Section – The Priest is another of my favorite characters. At times he has been the chronicler, the old man, and a little boy. The priest allows me to examine life and avoid the pitfalls of self-delusion and self-pity. I know what I have done and am ashamed at times but like any good layman will tell you Hate the sin but love the sinner. This then is the Priests function, the grounding effect. The Lover section – To describe this section is the easiest. I am a hopeless romantic, despite all my failures at Love. I love Love. I am still to this day in love with my sweetheart from the 7th grade. If given the opportunity, I would wine and dine her, place her upon a pedestal again, and rekindle that Love in her. The Lover in me expresses the perfect idea of Love. A love that is Never-ending, Boundless, Timeless, Eternal, and Perfect. In this section this is expressed in numerous ways at different times. The most eloquent expression for me is from Star Trek “I have been and will always be your {lover}.” Spock, says friend in the movie, this however is my reality. Watch out for surprise endings! Enjoy The Vagabond section - A hobo, an itinerant illiterate, a man without country or home, no space upon a mantle to call his own. These are the words that I have used to describe the feelings and motivations behind this voice in my head. This character is the embodiment of my destiny which is "Loneliness is my destiny. To love many but never be loved. To know many but never be known. My heart laments, my soul repents a destiny such as this." I write as a poet. I confess as the priest. I Love and take as the lover and thief. I live as the Vagabond and that has made all the difference.
