Hello! I'm Mike, and I like to Write stuff over at https://shadowtonguepoetry.tumblr.com
I am a disabled writer & performance poet currently living in verdant Surrey, England. 
My main focus is writing poetry, as I have written over 450 poems, many of which feature a dark, gothic slant, with a focus on mental health. I am also working on a Lovecraftian Haunted House novel.

Unfortunately, due to my disabilities I have been out of work for over a decade, and have lived on the poverty line since 2012, when I first started to live independently in supported accommodation as a psychiatric outpatient. 
After five years of toiling away privately with no financial rewards, I have decided to share my work with the world, namely over at:  https://shadowtonguepoetry.tumblr.com
If you enjoy my work, please consider sending some spare change my way to help cover living expenses and future projects.
Your money will help me:
- pay my rent & bills
- feed myself
- continue to write
- look into further creative endeavors (such as music & video production)

I am grateful for every act of kindness I receive, and I thank you for your generosity and for taking the time to read my work. 

yours humbly,
Michael Valak
