Emotional Fissures

eBook (PDF), 64 Pages
(1 Ratings)
Price: $5.00
This collection represents a nine-year span (2000-9) in which its author experienced the following: a broken longstanding soulmate relationship, two car accidents, principal job/housing loss, sibling death and multiple karmic obligations played out in a continuous pattern of diffcult decisions, processing and release of past and present life trauma. The breadth of subject matter is both diverse and utterly personal. With no intimate support system, poetry served as his confidant, creative outlet and emotional vent. The results are a cathartic landscape of intense pain and quiet suffering leading to spiritual transformation.

    Each poem in this book provides a vivid, nuanced, sometimes mystical glimpse of an aspect of one man's struggle through the emotional hardships of life--usually relating to poor relationships with others, especially in his quest for a soul-mate. Over the course of the struggle, and in particular because of his sister's death, he recognizes that his own ego is often what has kept him from happiness, and gains new hope that he might find his companion, ironically by admitting that it is ultimately up to fate to decide. This book rewards those who read it multiple times: connections between aspects become apparent and add to the understanding of the journey. More importantly, each reading brings the whole of the book closer to the reader, in terms of understanding the author's transformation, how it relates to the reader's own life (it will), and how well it illustrates an ongoing battle in each of us: we yearn to care for others, yet we are afraid of the hurt that caring makes possible....

Do not miss the chance to learn from his insight. -peter< Less
