Hello there! Poetic Transcendent a.k.a Denise here and the proud creator of Poetic Transcendence and its transcendent poetry. I’m just an introspective girl who’s been writing since my early teen years.

I vividly recall the day I decided to try my hand at poetry. I was in the 7th grade and I remember my best friend calling me up telling me she was entering a poetry contest. She encouraged me to join it as well. So with nothing to lose, I agreed to try it just for the heck of it. The poem I decided to write was actually a fandom poem based on the X-Files. While it was a simple and short poem I was surprised at what I had accomplished. I figured that if I can write about something like that then there was no telling what I was truly capable of. Since that day I have written pieces that predominantly come from the depths of my soul with a few oddities here and there. When I get into that place of intense feeling, those feelings just flow on to paper effortlessly. I’ve written on receipt paper, Mcdonald’s paper bags, tracing paper, graphing paper, regular paper and just about anything I could get my hands on at that moment. As you can probably gather, I’ve accumulated a lot of paper over the years which brings me to present day. I finally decided to do something with those pieces of poetry which is how Poetic Transcendence was born.

Poetic Transcendence is poetry based on the raw emotions, experiences and events that have taken place throughout my life including present day. This poetry will expose the dark and the light that we possess within. Without the dark there wouldn’t be light. It’s all about the balance between the two. With that being said, I would like to share these words with you. I invite anyone who may need to hear some uplifting or resonating words. No matter your path, I hope that you can find peace or comfort or just simply enjoy a good poem.
