Chasers of the Light: Poems from the Typewriter Series

Review:

The poems, in their entirety, is a collection that is more than words can describe.  They are both intimate and heartfelt that reach into the deepest crevice of your mind.  It gives you a sense of feeling loved and what it means in its reciprocated form.  My favorites:

I Love You,

in ways

you’ve never been

loved,

for reasons you’ve never been

told,

for longer than you think you

deserved

and with more

than you will ever know existed

inside

me.

 

Find my hand

in the darkness

and if we

cannot find

the light,

we

will always

make our

own.

 

You

are the poem

I never knew

how to write

and this life

is the story

I have always

wanted

to tell.

 

Can’t you see

from where you

sit

that I have scars

to kiss?

can you hear

from where you

rest

that I just may be

crazy?

can’t you feel

from where you

sleep,

that its always

you

that I

miss?

 

I promise you

I will try harder

to be better.

I

have battled with things

inside me

for longer than you know;

I do not know

what they are

or why are there,

I only know

that they feel

manageable

defeatable,

when I

am around

you.

 

You should know this,

that I love you

that I have always

loved you

and nothing,

no force in this

universe,

can stop me

from loving you

still.

 

“Thank you”

she whispered soft

like it may

blow away

with anything stronger

than a breath,

“for fixing me.”

“You,”

I sputtered out

like the first sound

of morning,

“were never broken.”

I love reading books as much as I love writing them. I enjoy drinking all sorts of teas and eating dark chocolate. When I need a trip back down to earth, I watch Seinfeld for comedy relief in this serious world. I'm a kid at heart that still enjoys receiving stuffed animals as gifts. I'm a Star Wars fan with the Nightmare Before Christmas as my theme music.
