    I was a member of the old poetry.com and submitted several poems. None which I have found by searching my last name Brasley. Please help in trying to locate these for me. A lot of my original work on paper was lost in Katrina and I started writing them on here never thinking that they may ever disappear. Please help!

    Hello. I submitted around 7-8 poems back in the early 2010s and was really hoping I could get access to them. I still have the notification emails and tried to follow the links to find the poems, however, it didn't work. Is there a way I could find copies of them? I used the same email back then as I've used to make this current account which leads me to believe that my entire account was deleted. I hope this is not the case and that there is some archive of sort that I may access to find my work. Looking forward to a response. Thank you in advance!

Unfortunately, I cannot recall the title, but I’m hoping my last name will help with your search.
