“The Madness: And My Decent Into It” Is part one in a four part autobiographical poetry series written from 2008 – 2015. These four books cover my daily struggle of trying to live a... More > normal life, hiding behind my mask, where my madness lies. This book and Part three “Better Without: The Unraveling of My Safety Net” were both intended to be my suicide notes. Prior to this book I had never written poetry before, honestly I have no idea if my words fit what a poem should be, or for that matter if this is any good. What I can say is each poem contained in this book is written in the exact order, and unedited as my initial suicide note. "All is quite but the drop of my gun. I want to belong...to someone... But maybe life's not for everyone." Justin Furstenfeld< Less

And So I Write: Confessional Poetry Verses the Madness Is part two in a four part autobiographical poetry series written from 2008 – 2015. These four books cover my daily struggle with trying... More > to live a normal life behind my mask; struggling to battle my madness with the written. After writing part one “The Madness: And My Decent Into It” I discovered the therapeutic effects writing had on my ability to get through another day. I started to blog as another outlet to purge the chaos in my mind by simply free writing. I still used my poetry journal chronicling my spiral into insanity. In order to write a true confessional story, each poem contained in this book is arranged in the exact order as my original journal, and remain unedited. “Perhaps the saddest irony of depression is that suicide happens when the patient gets a little better and can again function sufficiently.” Dick Cavett< Less

Better Without: The Unraveling of My Safety Net. Is the third book in a four part autobiographical poetry series written from 2008 – 2015. Part three covers my daily struggle with trying to... More > live a normal life behind my mask; where the darkness extinguished my will to live. Similar to part one ‘The Madness: And My Decent Into It’ the content was intended to be my suicide note. I intended on finally leaving this world on November 26th 2014; I am still trying to understand why on November 20th I was robbed of finally having a quite mind. Still lost within the darkness each day is worse than the last. I shouldn’t even be writing this, I should be free. I believe when my day comes it will be by my own hands,I hope the contents of these four books and any that may follow will provide my children some comfort and lesson the sadness they may feel as a result of my decision. This is the last book in the series where the content is unedited and arranged in the exact order as my intended suicide note.< Less

“Hell Has Become Our Home: A Poetic Narrative on the Duality of Marriage” Is the conclusion of my autobiographical poetry series written from 2008 – 2015. Part four focuses on my... More > marriage and the impact my multitude of masks had on it. Contrasting the previous books the majority of the poems were specifically chosen from the first three books in the series. I wanted to see if I could pull off writing a short story chronicling the chaos and destruction books 1-3 had on marriage by combining multiple short poems as the narrative. Anyone who is chronically mentally ill and the unfortunate people who fall in love with them will intimately relate and piece together this complex puzzle. When you marry someone with a chronic mental illness; you are not just marrying the person you love you are also marrying the illness. Honestly I am not sure if I will be able to pull this off, but I had to at least try. This is our story.< Less
