I respect what you do, the risk you take. You place your emotions on the line and people judge and do not always understand, I'm sure (I think I know). If you choose the path of the (good)poet/writer/artist, you risk ridicule, judgment, doubt; you risk accusation and blame, you risk hate and argument, love and embarrassment, you risk being hurt, being shunned, being stabbed to death; you risk hurting those you love, risk feeling too much, drowning in the human condition, for every word you write, you risk your heart ... May the Universe/God bless you in this task to which you, as a soul, are already committed. P.S. You also take a chance on the greatest possibility of all, changing the world, or changing the world of a few, or just one. Write hard. Dec 30 by SMarie

Oct 15, 2009"A truly inspirational written journey of the heart!" Kevin Anthony is an emotional soldier, no matter which battlefield he treads. Although love is a well-trodden subject for many artists, Mr. Anthony paints a cerebral collage of love in its most candid light. Whether its Love's awkwardness, desire, disappointment, affection, forgiveness, or stark loneliness, you'll find this cohesive collection is one to be savored repeatedly. As many an artist knows, the most difficult goal to achieve is to make his or her art appear effortless. "Love Overflow" is not afraid to explore the tough questions. For example, Living Or Dying literally makes you stop - take a breath - and REALLY try to answer the questions contained within... "Does my extreme faithfulness to you mean I am cheating myself?" as well as... Is love really worth it when I don't know if I'm Living or Dying? Mr. Anthony uses concrete imagery and sensory-filled motifs to describe the emotional... More > landscape love's various forms have carved. These forms are vulnerable, frail, and contain the aspects which make us so blatantly human. In the poem, What Could I Do? What Could I Say?, Mr. Anthony bares such naked thoughts - REAL thoughts many of us have but aren't willing to share - in such a way, you end up feeling as if you've snuck a peak into your best friend's diary. "Love Overflow" precisely frames loneliness in a deceptively simple starkness. In Phantom Of My Nights, the wanting, the desire, that moment before falling asleep - wishing your lover was still yours is addressed: "Oh yes, you are all mine tonight though you are not really here, I know it My apparition of the past, ghost lover making love...phantom moments." This collection is love's navigation - through both smooth and rugged terrain. Stand-out selections include: The Have Knots - regarding 9/11 as fresh as if it was yesterday, My Greatest Affection - an unapologetic and forceful testament to love's strength, and The Back of My Bus - a cornucopia of conflict, resentment, and love's absence. No matter which selection moves you the most, you'll walk away feeling a little less lonely, knowing that this incredible array of emotions DOES exist. And, you may walk away voyeuristic, as watching someone's heart unfold is much more alluring and sensual then disrobing in front of a stranger.< Less
