Dearest Demons presents a collection of poetry marking the end of innocence. We walk the earth never knowing when our time is going to be up, spoiled by good luck for some, forgiven by theology for others—until tragedy strikes. These verses explore this unsettling world. From the poignant "First Glimpse of Gray," about the inevitability of growing old, to "March Madness 2005," recounting all of the horrors that took place that month, Dearest Demons offers a clear-voiced perspective on the untamed beast that is humanity.
This collection shares why we must focus on absorbing every second of our existence—working through each other's sicknesses, rejoicing in health, redefining happiness, and rekindling the flame when the bonfire gets colder.
