G.E. Gravesabout this book: Contemplations - Romantic poetry
Contemplations, the second book in a series of free form verse, display a moment of force through expression that presses boundaries. Unlike poetry, which is often smooth and flowing, emotions are powerfully turbulent. Often, when thoughts and desires are expressed in words they vanish through editing. This in itself is the point of Contemplations, to show raw passion as it comes forth.
The outpouring of one's soul is never to be taken lightly. The ongoing path of self-awareness is riddled by deeply embedded desires that one often times wish were not present. However, they do exist. Facing these demons removes the mask that often holds one bound to rules that run contrary to nature and one's true path. That is what one strives for when following the only path that matters - self enlightenment and happiness.
My belief is that no one "chooses" to write poetry. I believe that poetry chooses the person. In my opinion, the most difficult part of writing poetry and prose is building the ability to look within, to understand ourselves in the only way possible – to feel emotions.
