Writing poetry has always been an creative and emotional outlet for me, ever since I understood the basics of prose.

2017 was a rollercoaster of a year for me, peppered with moments of sheer bliss and cavernous despair. Through the worst of times, my love for writing has kept me going, kept my blood oxygenated and helped clear my mind.

Whilst I know that 2017 was difficult in places, I’m interested to see how my state of mind fluctuates between the positive and negative, how the pendulum of mood swings.

A few years ago I was diagnosed with Cyclothymia, a rapidly cycling mood disorder which brings with it euphoria, depression and anxiety. Whilst I’ve always taken care to look after myself during this time, protecting my mental wellbeing with a concoction of mindfulness, meditation and medication – poetry helps me best express my feelings when I feel I have no outlet.

It is my hope that you find these collection of writings interesting, even helpful.

If you feel the same, or would like to tell me (and others) your story, then please get in touch!

One Year Of Poetry

Though I’m a man without a face,
Without a name,
Without a history,
I have a story.

I live a normal life,
I work,
I play,
I smile,
I cry,
I write…

From the 1st January to 31st December I will be committing the most honest expression of my innermost feelings on this site…

Some days may be good days,
Others may be bad,
Some may be happy,
Some sad,
Through poetry – as one man’s gift,
To make his feelings known,
Behind the curtains of this digital abode

So come with me,
Take my hand,
Let’s see where it will go,
For you and I shall not know,
How high the highs and low the lows,
Until we ride this lyrical ship to the end of the year…
