The Man You Didn’t Marry
About the Book
You have a way of dancing
To the beat of a storm in the sheets,
Making me say stop in the form
Of a question. I've got it now, a
Form in my mouth, and when I bit
Down, all there was, was glass,
And your face amazed. Why do I
Talk about you again like every
Pivot of my mind brings me
Back to you?
In a debut collection of poetry, Clifford Wayne Williams II opens his heart and life so that others can find understanding through his reflections about the world around him.
Williams' lyrical verse explores the years before his career began and represents his thoughts and philosophies as he organized and occasionally solved the puzzles within his mind. As he leads others down his path in life, Williams reflects on such relatable topics as the value of hard work, a twenty-one-hour drive when cruise control came in a clutch, and a pre-bucket list as simple as a book and a cup of coffee.
The Man You Didn't Marry shares poems from a fresh voice that explore his journey through life as he learns about love, heartache, and how to overcome his obstacles.
