After the release of "Reflection Of A Poet’s Life” by the same Author, it was suggested that among those 170+ poetry pieces included within the collection something of a key interest was missing, something that would rest upon a more personal level with which the reader could attach themselves to the one person who wrote them. It was also considered that maybe from the 2,000+ poems in the Author’s total collection there may be some with a more "Up Close & Personal” aromatic essence that would best describe his passion for writing such ‘Rhyme & Verse’ poetry, especially from such a young age.
Within "The Private Poet 2012”, readers will find a vast change to that of "Reflection Of A Poet’s Life”, simply because the pieces are those which the Writer purposely held back as a ‘Private Collection Only’. Where originally the poems were to remain held back from the ‘Public Domain’, either because of their individual personal meanings, or because they were simply ‘Private’, it is now, for the very first time the Author lays himself bare and unleashes that which many other Writer’s dare not reveal – Passion; Pain; Happiness; Heartache; The very essence of a living soul.
Constructed in no particular order of appearance, such pieces as "Autobiographical Poem”, "Dying Flame”, "Forever & Always”, "If…” and "My Southern Sun”, comprise of the pains in the Writer’s life, while, such other pieces as "Of My Home”, "Our First Daughter”, "Poets Heart” and "The Piper’s Debt”, explain the ways of surrounding experiences which we must all face at some point in our lives.
The Private Poet 2012 is considered to be the only possible way to get "Up Close & Personal” with the Writer, Marcus De Storm, and by "Up Close & Personal”, we really do mean it in every sense of the term.
