Too much or nothing

by Peycho Kanev

moments of agony and ecstasy
fighting for supremacy in my bed.
my girlfriend stared at me like she
knew it all.
but for that is way too late.
I am alone
feel bad
but one year ago
in my house
with my little girlfriend
we set the stars on fire
the moon was ashamed
and everything was in flames
the bed
the floor
and the walls breathed heavily
and sweated
disgusted of us.
but now
it's too late
now
behind the house
dead dogs watch my yard
all the rooms are empty
and they will remain like this.
this night
the universe drops the curtain.
there
where the love died with mouthful of worms
I continue to dwell.

Very good poem. Can anyone tell more about this poet and where I can read some other of his stuff?

Just google his name. He's been published widely. But I don't think he has a website.
