Kill My Thoughts – Andrew Marshall

For those with a predisposition to all things dark, even macabre, this collection of poems is sure to please. While the poems delve into universal themes such as love, longing, hope, anger and vengeance, everything is tinged with the poet’s signature dark shade. Through his poems, he dissects the lives of people who we often neglect to see – the marginalised, the wounded, who are trapped in predicaments that are difficult to escape from.
