I Look For You In Other Truths
(2014, MoshPit Publishing)
I Look For You In Other Truths is a meditative excursion into the sentimentality of love and of remembrances, gestures, words, familiar faces and feelings that remind you of things that could have been and what might have been.
In this new collection of poetry from Ramon Loyola, author of not poems, just words: on loving, living and longing, he infuses his verses with the same sensitivity and poignancy, plumbing the deep and intricate vessels of grief, navigating the mechanics of sexuality, and rambling on like a cascade of emotions that sing the praises of lessons learned in a shared life.
At once literal and metaphorical, the verses illuminate the myriad colours you see in the throes of passion, the serenity of lovemaking and the propensity for guilt in the face of finding your purpose. The poems speak of losing someone’s heart and of the spectre of pain in finding love again.
The words are understatements about the business of love and sex and afterthoughts on remembrances. They are overwrought whims about finding happiness and truth in every face you see, in every touch you feel, and in every kiss you give and receive. It is about your life, waiting to be shared.
