What Lies Beneath the Surface of Love In this collection of 20 poems, the author expresses different aspects of his love life by portraying personal experiences in creative poetry. In it, layers of love are defined, from the pain of heartbreak and betrayal, and the confusion it brings to your love life, to finding new love, and the transitional flings and compromises between the two. The author makes use of contemporary and somewhat unconventional metaphors and imagery, so the poems are food for thought. Life lessons, personal concerns and love’s complexities are interwoven to give the poems layered meaning. This is the fifth book in the “What Is Love?” series and it adds to an expanding, vivid and heartfelt poetry series.
