About the Book

Being in love can take you to amazing heights, but when it ends it can drop you in a bottomless pit of gloom. Yet we live on, burying this desire to relive that last embrace, that last kiss, and in the quiet moments, we dream of a perfect love and close our eyes to sleep.

This book of poetry spans roughly a fifty-five-year time period of experiences with love and relationships and reflecting the culture of the times and beliefs influenced by the silver screen and films such as Casablanca, Second Hand Lions, and many in between. Struggling with disillusioned certainty of forever-lasting love, it is finalized in a sphere of regrets and missed opportunity.
