The idea for this anthology has been on my mind for a while. I fell into a slump the past year due to both world and personal events, and I neglected poetry. Sitting with yourself in hard moments is never easy, so I'd like this to be a challenge for myself and whoever gives these poems a read. Let's allow ourselves to face the difficult and uncomfortable.

Perhaps a metaphor for the disintegration of a country.

Ha, you could see it that way too, I suppose.

The imagery in number four strikes with as resounding a blow as the statements that follow it. I think the imagery is perfect, as it reflects on his character as a family man (empty couch), a poet (notebook), and a lover/companion (bed) - you sum up the most important aspects of who he was with those symbols.
I felt some catharsis reading this piece. Although it is full of sadness, it's beautifully presented, and the last stanza may be interpreted as panic, but I see it as hopeful.

Thank you so much for reading :) The last stanza is a reminder to breathe while you can. The waves are strong, but with time they come farther apart.
