The title of this book comes from the fact that all my life I have enjoyed being a storyteller in one form or another.

But true or not, all are written from the center of my heart. The poems in this collection are perhaps about me the writer. Or perhaps about you the reader. Or about someone you know or someone you knew. Maybe even about someone you love or have loved or will love someday. Also perhaps, just perhaps, a few will be about something you hate!
