About the Book

The gods

Have fallen.

There is no more


Only internet


Created to hide

Who we really are.

There is no more

Thought and memory,

Only what we see

“I read it from Google.”

Ian Skrivseth loves inspiring others to think more, feel more, love more, laugh more, and even to be angry or sad more if need be. In a debut collection of poems, Skrivseth explores what it means to be human while reminding us that no matter what our place in life, that we all have flaws and feel a variety of emotions like love, hate, and pain. While relying on myths like Orpheus, Hades, and Sisyphus for inspiration, Skrivseth reflects on a variety of themes and subjects such as heartache, passion, love, falling stars, sins, and the graveyard of the gods where there is no more intimacy, only internet personas. Graveyard of the Gods shares poetry that leads others on an introspective journey through one man’s heart as he interweaves inspiration from stories with real-life experiences.
