“Color Me In Cyanide & Cherries” – The Book


“Colour Me In Cyanide & Cherries” is my first book of poetry and it is finally ready to roam the world.

I am heavily pondering about what to write about it, accustomed to most of my readers already knowing what poems are in here, when and why were they written and so forth, so I am having trouble finding the way that could perfectly describe what the poems are about to a traveler, a roamer, a stranger.

Most of the poems from this blog are included in the book, some I skipped, some I added. The book is,for now, only available as a print book. I feel incredibly bad charging for anything(even more so when the available platforms mandate a hefty price in order for the writer to earn anything at all), especially for an e-book, since,like I mentioned, reading through this poetic haven of mine is like reading this book of mine, only on screen. I wanted to conjoin all of this writing into a poetic experience and, in a way, provide my soul a chance to be remembered when my shell is no more, a chance for friends and family and/or whoever to get a glance at my heart.It was, is and will always be a scary yet adventurous endeavor.


If you would like to see the book, it is available at Lulu, and you can go check it out by clicking here:

Cyanide & Cherries The Book

It won’t be available on Amazon for a while, and why? Because myself, an ecstatic idiot, ordered the wrong proof copy without checking inside the right distribution boxes and clicking on the right places and practically waiting in front of the door for the mailman daily instead of correcting said idiocies. Now, I await the correct (hopefully!) proof copy, which I need to approve and then wait a little bit more until my book will be on Amazon and other places as well.

I would like to thank everyone who ever read my poetry and took precious time and words of their own, to gift to me and teach me, help me grow and brighten my day, dispel loneliness by an inch. I thanked y’all in the book as well!


Here is another peek inside:


If you would like to have this book, but don’t want to pay for it, you can’t afford it or just about whatever reason, I would be more than happy to send you a PDF, and I will also give out the book itself in its print glory as soon as I can. Just ask!

Thank you all once again for your encouragement, support, time and company on this journey which, I promise, will not end anytime soon!

About Me

I don’t mind the sun sometimes,
the images it shows,
I can taste you on my lips
and feel you in my clothes.
Cinnamon and sugary
and softly spoken lies,
you never know just how you look
through other people’s eyes
