Poet's Corner

There is a rave in my head

There is a rave in my head
It’s 3 o’clock I can’t go to bed
Disco lights should appear
Music that drives away fear
I hold the music close its dear
no worries they all disappear

There is a rave in my head
I am dancing to songs losing the thread
of what I am saying
beats and strings are spraying
Like cannon in ears
I am letting go of my tears
and feeding the energy
eventually I my feet will find a rhythm
I will find my rave
my groove will prove
club heat
and dance songs will stay on repeat.

About the author

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.
