A few weeks ago I released my new book, Very Sad Poetry. Thank-you to everyone who as purchased a copy, for a few days I was giving William Wordsworth a run for his money on the Amazon ranking charts and ahead of such luminaries as Milton and Rumi.
Now things have settled back to normal I expect and William Wordsworth is no doubt breathing a big sigh of relief that he has seen off another pretender to his throne of poet extraordinaire. Still, I thought I would share two more poems here plus another one which is in my book promo video below. I hope that you like them!
Fears by Stephen Liddell
If eyes are like the window on a soul
Then what are tears?
A tortured tap on overflow
The manifestation of all my fears
I’m a big believer of creating book promo videos. For myself, I enjoy making them but on a professional level I think promo videos helps bring books to people who might not be otherwise aware of it and you can share them on various sites.
For this promo I used a free-to-use rain video with various sound tracks on iMovie along with some footage I took myself from behind the waterfall at Ashgill, not knowing then it kind of suited the video.
Absence by Stephen Liddell
The sun is shining I see no light
The birds are singing I hear no sound
People laugh I sense no joy
The fire burns I can’t feel warmth
I am alone.
