DYING IN LIVING - A book of poems. Semi-autobiographical in nature. Written in free verse style.
It began in 2016 when I had left my stupid desk job. This book is a result of writing poems for almost 3.5 years during which time I kept changing my job and I kept getting pushed out of one city and into another. In this collection of 50 poems, I have tried to put down as honestly as I could what I saw or heard or felt or experienced as my life went on and things kept happening. From the shock of a new city to falling drunk in love, from spending days alone looking at the walls to hours of contemplation on a meaningless, absurd life, from moments full of rage to moments of utter tranquility under a caring sun, this book has all that and much more. Pardon my use of explicit language at places. I simply cannot live without using it!
Here are few titles of the poems contained in the book :-
Poem 3 - Drinking while you going away
Poem 9 - Time flies slowly
Poem 15 - No other way
Poem 23 - For a chilled beer
Poem 38 - Always, somewhere
Poem 43 - A dead man's room
Poem 48 - From an old hole that still echoes
With these words, I give to you my maiden work. - Tomic Riter
