When finishing this collection of poems, which neatly finished the end of the school year, I was considering attaching appendices and an extensive amount of footnotes to the collection. But, on second thought, i decided to let the poetry speak for itself, as they are moreorless sequenced in the order i wrote them.
No poem in here is written just merely for poetic or literary purposes, they are a reflection of my current state of mind and situations at the time. Of course some of the poems i tried to experiment with style a little, such as 'the tale of scarlet and serene' in which i've adapted a narrative poetic style, creating a work of fiction, but one which clearly parralells my thoughts the end of last february when i wrote it.
My use of imagery is an attempt not to disguise myself and hide behind my poems, but to embellish them and to make the feelings less specific to me, but also accessible to everyone. Yet at the same time what these feelings are, is all from me, and therefore the poems as a whole follow my journey through the last year as well as hopefully having meaning away from just me.
