Stephen Furlong Original. This is my work, my dedication, my life. Thank you for taking the time to look at it.

Hello and how do you do?

You’ve found yourself on my section of this wonderfully artistic site. I am a writer, photographer and appreciator of the arts. I can honestly say that writing has given my life purpose and direction. My heart goes out to those on this site, without them, I must say I would have given up on writing. I am always available for conversation, just send me a message. May you find a reason to stay today.

Sometimes I--

wonder what you think / when you hear my name. / Is it like an alarm? / Is it capable of serenity? / Do you even hear it? / My voice echoes / in this four-cornered / divide, / whispered mayhem.

I am complicated. / I am your father. / I am your son. / I am your mother. / I am your daughter. / I am your cage.
