In this new collection from well-established authors Cendrine Marrouat and David Ellis, enjoy a series of love poems delicately crafted to stimulate emotional and endearing aspects of our deep connections with each other.

Cendrine and David have selected poems for this volume that perfectly capture feelings and nuances relating to romantic notions. They explore how love can fundamentally shape and change you, how it can feed your innermost muses/desires and ultimately how it can define you as a person, if you fully embrace it with every fibre of your being.

Love need not be scary or complicated. This collection shows us that even the simplest of intimate gestures can mean more to us when speaking from the heart and soul.


The Garden Beyond the Looking Glass

(Inspired by the Greek Fable The Magician’s Horse)

Once upon a time

There, in a large forest

Beneath the stars at night

Stood a trace of human life

A living soul, with hunger and thirst

Lost in the flame of a fire, flickering

A glow spoke from it

Pure gold in a looking glass

Smouldering ruins, discovered, heard

Behind a mirror, there was nothing to lose

The sound of the earth, answered

“Fly once more and see the way!”

We must look back again behind us

When not able to advance, retrace steps

Hear the twinkling, the water, the fizz

Gather it, open a door of promise

Let anyone see and set out through beautiful paths

Everything loved from that moment, celebrated

Not to be left behind

You will find the sun glittering, in all directions

A rose in rebellion, disguised as a garden

Where the right of nothing but ‘be themselves’ is good enough

Be a hero for many and see a reward embroidered within
