Poems from a monster_small

I have gathered together years of scribblings and thousands of thoughts.
This book is a compilation of poems and prose I have written over the course of eighteen years.

Why a monster?
Reading these old pages made me think this person who wrote them…had such a deformed soul it could only be a monster. It is not necessarily a pejorative term – it’s just there to highlight the suffering, the destruction, the monstrosity of perceiving the world through too much pain…
This is the manifest of me, becoming a human being. I had been a monster and I had hoped to become human.

The following pages are not for the faint-hearted.
These are the real struggles of a hurting being. I have cried and I have bled over these pages…even now, as I rewrite them.
There are no curtains and no closed doors.
Don’t expect to find pink roses and gentle wind breezes.

This is real life! Real life hurts…
Readers are advised.

===== Same sorrows growing into the heart of the adult as those sad little tears of the child, going back in the midsts of time. 
Your soul will never be cured! =====

# Monster
“A monster is any creature, usually found in legends or horror fiction, that is often hideous and may produce fear or physical harm by its appearance and/or its actions. The word “monster” derives from Latin monstrum, an aberrant occurrence, usually biological, that was taken as a sign that something was wrong within the natural order. The word usually connotes something wrong or evil; a monster is generally morally objectionable, physically or psychologically hideous, and/or a freak of nature. It can also be applied figuratively to a person with similar characteristics like a greedy person or a person who does horrible things. However, the root of ‘monstrum’ is ‘monere’—which does not only mean to warn, but also to instruct, and forms the basis of the modern English demonstrate. Thus, the monster is also a sign or instruction. This benign interpretation was proposed by Saint Augustine, who did not see the monster as inherently evil, but as part of the natural design of the world, a kind-of deliberate category error.”

Sometimes, monsters write…

  1. I know how is too pass through time of crises. Bad people, bad events can create monster in us. Emotions go wild and we need to expose our anger and rage. Good poetry is often sad and covered with grief.

  2. “POEMS from a monster” is a treasure, a true Aladdin’s Cave!

    It is not just that it is a cool read, but it blew me away!

    Smooth and hypnotizing tales of loyal pilgrimage, a thorn paved path of pure love, of hopeless and cruel times during which ever-present death calls for a noble act of sacrifice.

    Poems are alive, intriguing, breathtaking, openhearted, beatifically honest, heartbreaking and emotionally rewarding.

    Absolutely my favourite book for 2017!
