Who do you—think, you are
What are you looking at
—How did I address that?
When I look into your eyes
It’s the same as looking at the stars
When we each wondered if
If, either they’re dead or alive.
The world is cynical
Your eyes are cylindrical
They’re the only two stars; left in the sky.
I sense I haven’t seen enough to know
I sense I haven’t seen enough of them
Not even if I look into them
Unblinking, until I, go.

Excerpt from the book Back on Earth
Back on Earth by Mark Andrew Heathcote
This is a collection of breath-taking poetry and prose, which is packed with a cacophony of emotions. The author is masterful in poetic metaphor, often using birds, flowers and nature as an effective method of telling a heart’s story. The deep emotions of the writer will not be missed, but rather felt in a profound way, with imagery so strong, that the reader easily identifies with what the poet is saying.
