About the Book

Her love to me

Is higher than poetry,

Deeper than a memory.

It is, you see,

Imprinted for eternity.

So let it be.

—Paul Chrisstarlon Wesselhöft

Paul Chrisstarlon Wesselhöft is just like all of us. On his spiritual journey through life, he has experienced frustrations and disappointments, joys and triumphs, and the heartache and sorrow of finding and then losing love.

In a volume of thematic poetry, Wesselhöft shares verse written since age fifteen that candidly reflects on childhood, adolesence, adulthood, and into the final years of age. From his search for soda pop bottles alongside the road when he was a boy to innocent contemplations about holding a girl’s hand to the magnetism of a female’s mouth, Wesselhöft’s poems reflect on life’s greatest moments and biggest challenges while offering a gentle reminder that we are all here on Earth to love and learn.

Eros: Penultimate Love shares one man’s lyrical expressions on a life well lived as he chronologically reflects on all he has embraced, experienced, and overcome to become the man he is today.
