About the Book
A collection of poems I've written over the years that until now, just sat around gathering dust and never seeing the light of day. The content ranges from pervasive thoughts to personal experiences to being completely fictionalized. The theme linking all of these poems together is love (or loss of love) in all its embodiments (from romantic to family to friendship to a love for a place or atmosphere.) Its been an interesting experience, going back and reading works I did years ago, reinterpreting them from a completely different mindset and point of view. It's a process that I think has led to some very interesting juxtapositions that I hope are just as interesting for you.
