"Against all odds,
And witnessing the scar tissue,
You hold my hand tighter than a rock
To risk this perilous path."
In The Suicide, Amy Tollyfield presents an anthology comprising many mixed moods and feelings - from melancholy to despair; from love to jealousy and betrayal; from hope to friendship and solidarity. It is a candid journey through many life experiences, with an insight into a range of hopes, dreams and possible dreads.
Her writing, like her soul, wants to obtain something deeper. May you find it here.
