For too long "living" a somnambulant existence the poet is "slowly awakened by feelings long forgotten, now love's insomniac." From love's hopeful anticipation through longing and loss to some semblance of acceptance, these poems draw inspiration from such poets as Emily Dickinson and e. e. cummings, as well as singer/songwriters like Melanie and Adele, with a pinch of religious imagery and a dash of Shakespeare. 49 poems. 19 more or less free verse, 17 whose stanzas are haiku structured and 13 villanelles. Some simple, direct. Some complex, highly structured, symbolic. All straight from the heart.
