From the Heart of the Poet: Relationships, if done right, are redeeming, edifying and glorious. If entered into improperly, they can destroy and defile. She reflects the years of relationships some based on sound decision making, but most not so much. Concealed in this volume of poetry is also a story of redemption. I have poetically catalogued years of fact, fiction, truth, deception, fantasy and imagination in this third handiwork of lyrical storytelling. There are expressions of romance, rhythmic confessions, stories of profound pain and insightfully healing reflections found within these pages. You will note that as the speaker I have respectfully declined to reveal the names of the many women who became my muses, as some names were changed for obvious reasons. But actions and emotions have been conveyed in all honesty, to the best of my ability. For this is me not reveling in the conquests of an unchaste, sensual individual, not a whoremongering bard spewing tall tales just telling my story, as I lived it, up until the point I gave it all up for Jesus Christ.
