Eclipse- A War of Words, is the epitome of human madness, the rage and fires of war. The work puts together the words, feelings and fears of soldiers alive and fallen from battlefields to home. The trauma, the damage, the life-changing experience of war on one's psychological and personal wellbeing. Eclipse, transcends the body and mind, into a different plane of poetical experience; pushing the boundaries of standard poetry notions. War has ravaged humanity as far as we could go back into history, why are wars still being fought? Are wars necessary in this age of technological and social advancement? The collection explores the physical, mental and socio-cultural impacts of wars on our world. Wars are fought every single day. Between the mind and body. Between the soul and the unseen. Within the body, wars are taking place, between humans and relationships, wars are taking place. On the battlefield, with guns and bombs, wars are taking place. The writing of these words have started a war within me. Take my hand, flip the pages of this collection and follow me down the path of war, poems and stories. Are you ready to be eclipsed?
