While the hills and lights begin to geld in a grand symphony, I finally got you where I want you Glistening glimmer, the perfect balance of music and silence Listening to the sounds of darkness, dividing God’s plan for eternity It’s a homecoming Don’t let life compromise your star Jonathan Faia is a passionate writer whose work encompasses despair, angst, and even flirts with death while reflecting on the indulgences of love and the loneliness that accompanies its failures. In his second collection of poetry, Faia explores all aspects of love while reminding others of the hope and resilience needed to navigate through complicated relationships and the pain of heartache. Shared in the spirit and rhythm of the Beat Generation, his poems delve into the emotions and failures that follow him as he examines his depths amid an internal struggle to balance his sanity with his conscience while battling the urges for sin and debauchery. Figuratively illustrated by the long, lonely road from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, Love Letters from Barstow shares empowering poems that reflect on love, heartbreak, and one man's limitations.
