Here’s a look at my first poetry book – “For You”

This was the first poetry book that I wrote, and I’m currently in the middle of another one which I hope to have done by the end of the year.

As I was doing yet another reiteration of my writing portfolio and thinking about all the ways that I could revamp my site, I came across this little gem. Ironically enough, while also cleaning out my room recently, I found the hard copy version of this same little gem – all of my 18 year old self poured into a tiny notebook, chronicling one relationship with one person. The complexities, the feelings, the sheer pain that comes from adolescent love.

And I read it back to myself and I marvel.

In some ways, I find it amusing how dramatic I once was. But in other ways, I find that I’m not all that different from who I was before.

People that know me know that I keep a very transparent, open-book policy in life. I have nothing to hide. But divulging the who behind this book – the figures and memories referenced – will not happen.

I have full confidence that the inspiration behind this book – my muse, if we’re being artistically dramatic – will know from the moment they begin reading that this is about them.

I’d love to hear what you think about the pieces in this book, as well as any conspiracy theories you may have. Let me know in the comments!
