“Poetry is the rhythmical creation of beauty in words.” ― Edgar Allan Poe
It is a marvelous achievement when married couples face and overcome challenges and problems while remaining firm in their love for each other.
However, there can also be pain and heartache when a loved one dies, or a relationship fails. Times of anguish, no doubt. Several of my poems touch on this genuine part of life.
Though several of the poems are derived from personal experience, not all are autobiographical.
I've written many for my wife but have also composed poems when inspired by an image, an article I read, or observations made in other relationships.
