Thus is a volume of poetry written in my youth, starting in my early teens, when I was a patient in the Adolescent Unit of a psychiatric hospital in the early 1970s, and moving on to poems written in my late teens and early twenties.

The early poems expresss the imagination of a teenager, while many of the later poems deal with lost love and feelings of depression, reflecting the sadness and aspirations of an unhappy young man who had fallen from a previous state of ecstasy into melancholy through having been compulsorily detained in a psychiatric unit for two and a half years.

It has been published on 6th July 2011 by the leading mental health publisher Chipmunkapublishing (see http://tinyurl.com/3bdxv36).
