“The Souls Of The Ship” is a journey. You embark in a ship full of sailors unattached to the land, who seek only the mysterious fortunes beyond the shivering horizon.
I wrote this book in a strange season of my life. I was madly in love with a girl, and I strived to forget her. There is one good thing about poetry when you are in love: it’s the best poetry you’ll ever write. And so, back in those days, I really felt that, because I was able to write down all those emotions and painful feelings, I had some light to guide me in the darkness.
Between howls of pain and songs of hope, sea storms and summer isles, endless days and magical nights, “The Souls Of The Ship” is, much like The Door’s song, “The Crystal Ship”, a tale about a man who ran away from the land to seek for new thrills and new horizons, to refill his magic and survive the night, and write down a letter after all ends are met.
If this book wishes to say anything, it is that, sometimes, true love assumes the strangest forms and comes when you least expect. Ultimately, that’s what this is all about: the meaning and search for true love.
