Read an Excerpt

Poem no. 30: She’s Captured My Heart

My feelings for her rattle in my heart and spill over into my ribcage like thunder in my chest.

Her laughter sounds soft;
like rose petals and scented candles.

When she glances my way the butterflies
shoot through my heart, puncturing my lungs. Her pretty eyes are all I look for in others.

My feelings for her climb in my heart like
ivy getting stuck in every crevice of my ribcage. Her tattoos have captured my attention
and so has her lovely personality.

Date Published: May 4, 2021

Publisher: ShyMonkey Publishing

Poetry is the transfer of feelings and emotions onto the blank page. Great poetry shakes the heart and wakes the soul. Dare to read this collection; give yourself the opportunity to have your brain picked, heart squeezed, and soul poked. All poems are open to interpretation. If there’s one, two, or a few that don’t sit well with you, don’t get offended or startled. Maybe look and ask yourself why they hit you the way they did. Understand that when we get tangled in our feelings, we tend to say and write things that might seem harsh. But we really don’t mean those things—maybe—sometimes. This work of poetry goes into an array of emotions of today’s man because we have feelings too. In the five phases of the book, you’ll find poetry that aligns with mental health, love, motivation, being a man, and family. The poems carry sentiments of everyday life. We all experience highs and lows and sometimes struggle to find balance.

About the Author


A.F Agui started his writing journey in his early teens. He viewed it as a form art, and he wanted to be in mix, to create his own art and add to the artistic world. So, he did. Later, in his early twenties he discovered there was more to it than just beauty. He realized the simplicity of putting ink to paper was more than just symbols with meaning. The simplicity came with complexity. Because the art became a form of expression. AFA likes to give life to the pages he touches. He knows those pages can carry more human emotions than words can explain. He believes written words can reach souls, and he intends too.
