About the Book
I started writing poetry to handle my feelings of love as an adolescent teenager. At 17, an event happened in my life that would forever shape me. I began to question my sexuality. Soon after, I fell for a boy and was convinced he was my soulmate. I wrote much poetry through this period of unrequited love. At 18, I fell in love again, this time with a girl, and I became convinced not only was I gay but that she was my true love. This was the beginning of my journey into Paranoia and Schizophrenia as this love grew. In 1995, I found God through various metaphysical experiences.
I travelled to Sunderland in the U.K. in 1996 to study B.A. Communications Studies at the University of Sunderland. By early 1997, I had a nervous breakdown and was in hospital in St. Mary's Hospital in Paddington, London. "Blossoms" is a collection of poems from that period.
My poetry is about Love, God, Madness and Sexuality.
To me, every poem is a blossom of feeling and thought through words. I'd like to share my poetry with the world as I believe there is a lot in my writing that can help heal people. By reading my words, I am sure many others can relate to me.
