More > tried so many times, the pain would eat me. Like they loved me, like they tried to grab me. My insides were sliced open. Violins playing, screeching. “Don't let me die without you.” I scream.

Beautiful Paradox By Broderick Carter
eBook (PDF): $6.95
Beautiful Paradox is a culmination of selected poems over a span of 10 years. Beautiful Paradox actually began through a tragedy in my life. I began to have a new found and creative way to explore... More > how poetry was written. Over the 10 year span, I wanted to change how we read poetry, viewed it and embraced it. Due to my love of short stories, I have found a way to put poetry into a short story form. I developed a concept of how to write poetry in short story form…sort of like an experiment with word play, emotions, day to day living and through life experiences. Through my concepts, creativity and experiments, I developed a style that would bring the reader into an emotional connection with the writer. This connection spawns a new way of writing poetry that intertwines the reader and the poet by invoking an emotional, spiritual and a sense of realism to both, thus providing an intimate connection with the poet, Broderick Carter.< Less

Each of these poems is a little bridge—a link from here to here—from the here that isn’t, quite, to the here that truly is. We spend our lives adjacent to grace, not always... More > realizing it, and sometimes a little stepping stool is useful to provide a boost, so we can peek over the wall that’s keeping us from seeing what’s really happening. Sustaining this view means greeting life on new terms, embracing a shift in perspective, and that’s what these pieces hope to spark. . Hafiz is the ringleader in this collection—the playful voice of my own heart. There’s a whole crew of friends in here. We scamper across dew-flecked lawns at dawn, assault the meaning of existence, dare the stars to wink at us, and drive off the edge of the road in a flying convertible. We’re just having fun as we receive, little by little, the joyful inklings of eternity’s promise.< Less
