I am Eli Love. I am a transgender female to male. I write stories about anything that possess my mind and I love writing poetry.
I will occasionally do Slam Poetry and I will eventually post my actual performances online and link them in journal entries.
I am also an avid role-player on an adult web forum. No, not all of it is sexual. Please be considerate and if you would like to know about this website and are above the age of 18 I will gladly give it to you if you ask privately.

So, recently last week I was participating in a talent show at our local High School. I performed on stage one of my poems called "I Am Eli." This was my first time performing my slam poetry on stage and it was nerve racking for me. It did not help that two of the most important people in my life were in the audience and they did not yet know about me wanting to be a man. Well, I AM a man, just don't have my dangly-bits yet :p
SO! This performance was my coming out to my sister Lenora and my mother Shirley. I do not recall if the performance was recorded or not, but I know after my performance I was given a standing ovation and many in the audience stopped me after the show to congratulate me and tell me how much strength I had to go up on stage and be up there. Even the performer who was hired to entertain the audience while the judges were calculating the results of the winners, he stopped in the middle of his performance and mentioned me. I wanted to cry from so much happiness and support. There is nothing better then having seen tears in the eyes of an audience who doesn't know you, but hears your message and you move them so deeply they feel the need to tell you about it. That is all I ever wanted to do in my life and it has happened. Now that I have had that experience I want to do it more and plan on perusing a life in poetry whether it be slam or just publishing books to the masses. I love performing and I love writing. It is my passion and I hope to let you all know that I appreciate anyone who follows me from here and into the future. I hope that I continued to find that happiness I had that first night of my first performance. The beauty of the world is out there for us to hold it, but we have to take the time and stop and just stare at it. We move so fast in our lives that we don't see the true beauty in the people who surround us and the world we live in, corrupted with politics and money, but there is still beauty. Just look.
