By Author L. Bachman
The introduction by KJ Taylor was direct and honest. Such an introduction helped me to appreciate what I was going to read a great deal more. Let me start by stating I’m no stranger to trauma, recovery, depression and how all three can suck the life out of a person. Each poem in this collection rung a bell with my own recovery with ptsd and grief laden hopelessness. While hopeless there was a ray of light that warmed those broken parts of my spirit as each poem’s meaning or message was comprehended. What’s sad to admit is author L Bachman suffered with trauma and the challenges of recovery that could normally break a person’s spirit and willpower to keep living. Equally this writer kept living, kept trying to improve his life and never gave in to the darkness some of us know rests just a breath away.
The first poem “Cannot Cry’ was short and brutally honest and finished with the broken parts fit between my own. No truer of a meaning could have been found in a poem.
‘The Candle, The wick, The wax’ is a poem of metaphors matching different aspects of the human soul that are damaged, overwhelmed or drown in the challenges life throw at us.
“A Simple Gesture” A poem about something I know to work in my daily interactions with family, friends and co-workers. I’m always dumbfounded by how the simplest gesture can make someone’s day or ruin a good day.
“The Quiet ones” well what can I say than how I know for a fact the quiet ones suffering trauma suffer the most.
There are too many poems here that have a direct correlation with what I dealt with, coped with and overcame as I lived these last eight years. So much wonder, love, anger, frustration, guilt and desire for life in the face of hopelessness here in this collection of poems.
