Read A Desolate Reunion, A Return to Ether (Angustus Edition) by TC McKinney-fReado
The Story Behind This Book
A COLLABORATIVE INDULGENCE
“Am I someone, somebody or something in your eyes?”
(From the poem entitled 'Aliquid')
~An Afterword by TC McKinney ~
I must therefore reason concerning the written publication of this book. We all live and die accordingly. For it is said that every man is
indeed a condemned criminal, only he does not know the day of his execution. This is indeed true. This work is not an attempt to engage in suicide, cutting oneself, doing drugs or harming others etc.
This work is for those who thus feel alone, solitary and desolate. These poems are meant to bring tranquility and serenity in such emotional feelings that are thus conveyed. A way to cope with the art of living
in such sweet sorrow. There is a comfort and splendid art form that is therefore taken for granted by the mainstream of humanity.
People often have the misconception that feelings such as the ones presented in this book are not 'Normal' and thus these feelings and people who feel this way are in need of help, comfort
and need a new set way of thinking patterns.
When solitary confinement runs its course through the veins of such people as who feel depression it is true that this is such a way to draw attention, cope with the way of living, bring themselves down
to humbleness, keep from judgment, bring a higher state of mind and give meaning to their lives and thus questions arise within:
Why am I?, Who am I?,What am I doing here?
These questions in general are considered normal patterns that help our intelligence grow but yet the patterns of actions bring questions that are judged by society as dark and not healthy for ones being.
Let us therefore live and surrender our ways to understand the perception of others around us. To the darker inner shadows of ourselves we should give credit.
There is indeed a light within every dark aspect that surrounds us.
