ABOUT THIS BOOK

A collection of the poetry of a sixteen-year-old, Silhouettes Unravelled travels uncharted territories to explore what lies hidden beneath the many layers of human consciousness. The poems effortlessly weave together diverse themes such as love, betrayal, joy, loss and anguish, to reveal the dimmed voices of the human psyche, encouraging the reader to recognise the profundity that lies beneath the mundane as well as the extraordinary.
