Harlow Clark about this book: A deep and thoughtful collection of poems and two essays written over the course of three years about life, love, and the random and sometimes poetic thoughts that float through my brain. I'm a storyteller at heart, and I don't consider what I've written any more than flinging together pretty words in hopes that I'd hit a few heart strings and touch someone's life for the better.
These poems are supposed to read like music on the page---let them into your heart and then see where it goes. Their meanings are not concrete, and their symbolism is unique to everyone. Make them your own. Read them you're sad and let your tears stain the pages. Recite them when you're happy regardless of how insane you'll look. They work great as a bath time companion, and even better on a nightstand.
I hope you'll believe you've stumbled upon something special, and I hope you'll see a little bit of yourself within the pages of this book.
