The poems in this book range from romantic to erotic, from being apologetic to suffering heartbreak, love to lust and just plain trash talking. In most of the 109 poems in this book, the title of the poem is always in the last line of the poem. Sometimes the last two lines may even rhyme, but not always. This has been my signature that I started back in the 1990s.Some of the poems are written as conversational prose to create a vivid mental picture in the readers mind. To accomplish this I rely heavily on the use of simile and metaphor. Some examples of poems where I endeavor to do this are The Lady that Dances in My Dreams,Compassionate Superwoman Lover, and Call Me Mr. Goodbar.I also have a few Rhyme Scheme Poems – poems where every two lines rhyme. These are not Hip Hop styled raps. They are conversational and meant to be spoken, not yelled. Some of the poems written in this style areWhat Couldve Been,The Flutter of Butterfly Wings, and Im NOT that Dude!In this book, I will introduce you to two poetic styles that I created. The first is called Haiku Chain Poems. A haiku is a Japanese form of poetry composed of three lines with a total of 17 syllables. The three lines have 5 syllables, 7 syllables, and 5 syllables respectively. What I do in a haiku chain is to connect several related haiku together to create one larger poem. I am very proud of this innovation that I created. Law of Attraction,Cant Get Over You,Smooth Operator and “I am Akuba” are a few of the poems written in this style.Speaking of Akuba Annan, she is a supernatural person that I wrote a short story about called “Corporate Casanova.” The story is posted on my blog at www.tpegonline.com. Im also working on a short story featuring Akubas male personification, Kweku Annan. There is a haiku chain poem in this book entitled “Know My Name; Kweku.” There is a soon-to-be-posted short story featuring Kweku will be called “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.
