Death is a blank space

That I’ll never be able to deal with

Happiness is only a temporary solution

Life is the only way out!





Testimonials



I love this poetry, I love this poet
Geoff Thompson - BAFTA winning writer


Paul's writing is optimism in the darkest places. Seeing illness as bringing awakening, this is an interesting and hopeful insight in these messageless times. Paul finds entire worlds in the smallest of objects, a sketcher, he draws the reader into the pictures of both outside and inside his mind. Paul has a keen eye for astonishing audiences, through reversals of common meanings he constantly surprises. An eminent performer, his delivery is always a treat.
Michael Wilson - national award winning poet
