Poetry Books


Which came first? The Poem or the Painting? Sometimes its one way , sometimes its the other. The Poem “Hollow World” on page 36 came first and I then painted the “Hollow World” Original Watercolour. Sometimes the Painting comes first and I write a Poem to describe it.

My aim was to create a book that people will read time and time again or keep dipping into for escapism, inspiration or just to have a laugh!

I hope it will appeal to anyone with a pulse, from teenagers daydreaming about their favourite famous person to men looking for a romantic gift for their girlfriend/wife or anyone who’s ever experienced the emotion of love.

My poems have been created by a mixture of observation, inspiration and imagination as well as life experience, my feelings and beliefs.

I’ll briefly describe what you can expect from each chapter here:

In chapter 1 – Dreams of Love – Anyone who’s ever daydreamed about an acquaintance, a work colleague, a famous person or a platonic friend (that you want to be more) knows the feeling of unrequited love: making up scenarios in your mind of how to make him notice you, we’ve all been there!

Chapter Two – New Love – Full of confusion, excitement and passion, you wonder if anyone else in the whole wide world has ever felt as good as you feel right now!

Chapter Three – Love Gone Wrong – Poems about broken hearts, hopes and false hopes!

Chapter Four – A Fan’s Feelings – Describes how we feel about our favourite famous person, the poems in this chapter are written about my heart-throb, Rafael Nadal, although some of them don’t mention his name and could easily be applied to your heart-throb.

Chapter Five – Love Triangles – Poems written from all perspectives of the love triangle, inspired by the song “Saving All My Love for You” by Whitney Housten.

Chapter Six – Autobiographical – Contains poems about my life, some of which I hope will inspire others.

Chapter Seven – Family and friends – Contains poems and tributes to and about my family and friends, I think you will relate to many of them.

Chapter Eight – Encore! An extra chapter containing more poems about ‘A fan’s Feelings’ and one poem about ‘New Love.’

Chapter 1 is 'Magnifico Matches,'
they're something this book doesn't lack,
read and relive each moment again,
the memories will come flooding back.

but Rafa fights till the bitter end,
I admire his attitude so very much,
and hope next time he'll get his revenge!
Chapter 3 is 'Injury Time 0ut'
and how we miss him when he's away,
we all send good vibes to help him to heal,
and hope he'll soon be back to play.
Chapter 4 is 'The Comeback' 
there's been more than one of those,
Rafa works so hard to get back to his best,
my love and admiration grows.

and memories of matches they've played,
they bring out such passion
in all Rafa's fans,
no wonder our nerves are all frayed!

modeling in underwear,
for that we had waited,
this chapter's about his sex appeal,
and why our daydreams are all X-rated!

we know a good Soul when we see one,
he's an earth angel all the way through.

I fell for him in 2008,
and I'll always be a fan.

and the jobs that he's done on the side,
