Café Confessional is a collection of poetry— the telling of personal truths and beliefs. I have lived with the tragic effects of depression and anxiety most of my life, and I have chosen to put into poetry what is difficult to discuss and describe in ordinary terms. The reader will not only gain an intimate look into my life, but also some insight into the human soul. Café Confessional also deals with the issues of male victims of domestic violence. I have a personal experience with the topic and felt it important for male readers to know of this experience. Male victims typically do not speak up, and I hope to be a voice for them.

I wrote most of the poetry at cafés. Most of the poems have an honest nakedness about them, which feels like confessions. The book feels like an in-depth conversation with an old friend, revealing scars and all. It’s a conversation you can only have with your closest friend.
