Smudged Ink and Other Poems is a collection of scribbled thoughts and ruminations. These verses, most without any rhyme or meter, engage with the incoherent voices of a distressed soul with a promise to calm the mind and whisper in your ear, “Relax”. Feelings of hurt, joy, anger, and despair often find solace in words, albeit inadequately. However, expression is must, no matter the ink on the paper gets smudged or spilled. This is a journey to seeking the beauty of clarity in a blur.
