Please join me on this quest through dark passages – yet there are rays of hope throughout as we seek paradise. First we must embark upon a gritty, dimly lit poetic journey through the dark hour, looking for the new dawn. Once we have found this new hope, we must stay true to the path and finish our quest.

The dark passages within this book contain a range of poetic and prosaic writing styles in one compilation that is thick with liminalism and imagery.
