I have published single poems before in anthologies, magazines and the poetry website, Secret Attic, as a competition finalist and prize winner.We all find love at some point on this life's road. In these poems, I explore this complex journey of feelings, emotions and hopes lived out between two shared souls. Each poem is a cove on loves myriad path, inviting the reader to come in and share its succulent sweetness and dark despair. I have tried to touch that nerve in each of us, in a way that is romantic but real, traditional yet modern. Some of these poems are sensual and erotic, but they all try to convey honest meaning and understanding. This is a journey of love found, lived, lost and found again. From pleasures peak to the wilderness and back. Love is the door we keep open inside and hope will never close, for to love and be loved, means we are not alone. Welcome and well met ~Strider~Love is a canvas furnished by Nature and embroidered by imagination~ Voltaire~

By Michelle Daly who bought this book on amazonbooks.co.uk - and left this review of Aspects Of Love (Paperback): Pure Poetry, 1 April 2011 Aspects of Love is a pocket sized book of poetry. Whether you're falling in love, out of love, feeling rejected or searching for romance, Strider's Marcus Jones' voice will resonate with you. This book would make a lovely gift and I look forward to reading much more from this very talented poet.< Less
Without a doubt Strider Marcus Jones is one the THE best modern day poets I have had the pleasure to read. The poetry in Aspects of Love are frequently edgy,always passionate and make this poet envious at his abilities. Simply put he touches your emotions and fires your imagination to new heights.
"Aspects Of Love" The title says it all. This is a wonderful collection of poems that portray the strength and depth of emotions on all levels whether they are positive or negative. Beautifully written, and a joy to read.xx
