Looking for the emotional Baggage Claim

Background Information

     After having kept a journal with me everywhere I go for the last fifteen years or so I have a record of my life, losses, loves, hates, fears, and every other emotion that drug me around like a puppet at one time or another.

     My entire life I have always had this nagging feeling that I was looking for something, searching, waiting for something or someone- but I did not know what or who exactly it was that I was looking to find, so I wandered around in my life trying to find myself... I was lost. 

     Along the way I fell into a lot of traps, made wrong turns, some of them good some of them a complete nightmare. After all that, after all the friends and the late nights out after all the many who share my company, I was always alone. 

     The big problem I've found is that in life, all the wrong choices tend to feel so right, so good at the time that they are hard to resist... even when deep down you know it is right. Giving in to temptation, giving into love because holding it back is killing you inside is the very thing that broke me. I knew it going in and I only have myself to blame. M. Reed has been a writer, poet, artist and musician her entire life. Poetry has always been a passion for M. Reed, as it was a means of escape in times of strife. Having escaped a violently abusive relationship, M. Reed brings a vivid and inspiring new dimension to poetry. From hopeless romantic love affairs to the darkest hours of betrayal and isolation M. Reed offers readers and unforgettable story…

Born and raised in Sacramento, California M. Reed reflects the beauty of the places she grew up in and around. While she has never been an outcast, M. Reed glows with originality and character all her own.

Her work has been greatly influenced by some of her favorite writers, poets and musicians and is an avid reader and artist; craving to learn and create new things each and every day.

As for her as a poet… she speaks softly, but with great passion. Those privileged enough to have heard her read her poetry in person have said that they were absolutely captivated by her; literally hanging off every word she spoke. M. Reed has the rare ability to capture a moment, a feeling, an essence, a beauty or tragedy. Her writing has been described by fellow authors and poets alike as having the rare qualities of a true poetic soul. While M. Reed prefers to keep her private life private, there is no question that her story is written on every page.


Birth Place
Sacramento, CA USA

In 2011, M. Reed was published in American Songwriter Magazine for her soulful lyrical style and in 2010 honored as Song of the Year's Suggested Artist. This book of poetry is the first of the long awaited series of epic creations from her.
M. Reed thrives on creativity and continues to inspire and create artistic works that have received rave reviews. She explains that she has finally developed her voice, her brand, her style and that she has at last come home to the one thing she has always loved the most, writing. M. Reed is an English Major at AMU and plans to get her masters in creative writing in the near future.
