Book: “Self Inflicted Heart Shaped Wounds” Backroad Poetry, Vol. 1


“With arms around your sweater
and chin atop your head,
I had one eye closed to the future and
the other looking towards a
street corner phone booth confessional
while trying desperately
to force myself to forget that
eventually I will miss you forever,”

(excerpt from the story”Eventually I will miss you forever”)

Review of “Self Inflicted Heart Shaped Wounds”:

“Just finished ‘Self Inflicted Heart Shaped Wounds.’ I’m speechless, and if I had been using a real highlighter on real pages (rather than reading this on my Kindle app) I would have run out of ink. Steve’s writing gets right to the heart of things, and I like writers (and people in general) who can do that with brutal honesty and grace. This work reminds me of a line from Jerry McGuire — ‘The Things We Think But Do Not Say.’ I can’t recommend this collection highly enough. Thank you, Steve, for writing the things we think but don’t often (or ever) say.”

“Self Inflicted Heart Shaped Wounds” is available at Amazon in paperback and ebook  /Kindle format (link below).
