After two years of hard work my new poetry book is now available to pre-order on Amazon and in other book stores.
I’ve been writing for years and not always when I’ve been in a good place. But that darkness makes the words honest, and to an extent brutal.
From the start of having confidence to edit them and send them off to publishers, I said to myself that I wouldn’t hold back, if I feel it’s too much, or maybe a trigger.
I decided if I ever felt that way with a poem I would write it anyway. No more avoiding life and escaping from my true feelings.
Suicide is suicide, pain is pain, and fear is fear. No need to dress it up. Don’t get me wrong every topic is used in context, not just for shock value.
Each poem reflects a stage in my life. They are deep, to the point, and honest.
I wanted people to feel what I was feeling when they read them. But also being able to interpret them in their own lives and history.
I believe that people with messy minds and ill mental health have great imaginations. Just imagine if that was used creatively, in art, music, poems, anything. The results would be unique and wonderous!!
I am very proud of this book. I’ve been able to step into the darkness without fear of being sucked in. What saw I put down in words, and this is my story and journey in poetry form.
