Lonely Boy is an open conversation about mental health but it’s also bery much a tribute to Erbie, who we lost almost 11 years ago. So it means everything to me that his mother, Karen, is finding some comfort in what I wrote about him ❤️

I sometimes struggle to recall anything about the previous day, week or month, but there are some things that happened decades ago that still seem fresh.

This poem means a lot to me so I was glad when it appeared in the Summer Fare issue of @PaddlerPress

Thanks for reading. 🙂

"Even if he did not see her, what happiness it would give him to step on that earth where, not knowing the exact location, at any given moment, of her presence, he would feel palpitating everywhere the possibility of her sudden appearance."

— Marcel Proust

This is a poem about my father and my grandfather. My grandfather died before I was born so I only know him through stories Dad has told me over the years.

It was published a couple of months back in an anthology called Chasing Shadows.

Thanks for reading. 🙂
