Tequila River

Description

This book of poems was written in binges while I was writing my novella, “It’s Now My Time: Coffee, Poetry & The Past.” As I wrote my novella, I had to take time and binge write poetry to keep my head in place while I wrote about terrifying events in my life. This book is an ending result of my pain and agony as I wrote. Some of the poems have a sense of love, but also with a hidden atmosphere of a broken girl searching for life in general.
I connected with myself on every level while I wrote. Some of the emotions and anger you feel in this book stems over from “It’s Now My Time” especially with respect to my father, Jim, my sister Kim and my brother, James. I had to have a way to release this anger and frustration as I wrote my novella or all of this insanity I was feeling would over power my mind, body, and soul. More than likely I would not be sitting here if truly allowed my entire past to capture and hold me. I fight these demons daily on a very low level, some days or nights they have a tendency to creep in on a higher level of stress and anxiety.

However, this anthology is more-less another capture of my dark soul and twisted thoughts among the world of words. There is nothing better than to take words and twist them into poetry that is written from the bottom core of s poet and that is exactly what I tried to do with this anthology. Hope you enjoy each poem and please leave a review!

Quietly I sit
In the stillness
Of the dark
Carelessness of my words
Like a river full of tequila brew
I close this poem
With an “I love you”
But it falls on deaf ears
While I take another drowning dose
Of heartache of Tequila Brew.
