New book promo video & poems from Very Sad Poetry

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.
