Poet's Corner

I stole your name

I stole your name
how many times have we played our different parts?
Losing is my art
I appear to have lost you but you are in my heart
the devil is death
But lived is breath
I keep breathing
the boy born into the land of the dead
Last and first
and cursed to breathe your love in my breath
Yes you are my memory
but I have buried you the cemetery of the past
and she wants you not me
but she can’t see
Because justice is
blind
and her scales are evaluated by a sense of feeling
we are all victims of the hell in our minds
and the heaven in our hearts
and living and dying are arts.

Dan Hooks

Hi there my name is Dan Hooks and I am a poet.

My poetry has many diverse themes from madness to the mundane, from fantasy and fable to philosophical and the darkness of reality (whatever that is).

I have been writing since I was 18 and have inspired other artists such as Benjamin Heine who created an piece of art work called”filled with fire” from my poem called “Freedom”. That poem was inspired from a quote from Nelson Mandela saying “we are free to be free”. Writing I find is a collaborative process.

I have also written other poems which have been used in language courses in America, Canada and Australia. One of which is called “poem on identity” and the other one is “Antithesis”.

I have a soundcloud account in which I post poems to music and my spoken word pieces. I find spreading my work on various social media platforms really useful for presenting my work.

I am also fond of travelling and have climbed Mount Fuji in Japan visited Finland skied in both USA in keystone Colorado and Whistler in Canada. I find perspective can be found in travelling to other countries and it also helps you appreciate other cultures as well your own.
