Announcement (10/17/2013)

Hey followers! Two days ago I received an e-mail that informed me that three poems from my last book Concrete Promises will be published in an international anthology of love poems. I will post information once the anthology is complete. Also, I’ll post the three selected poems! It is always a humbling experience to get published, I admit. Again, thank you all for continuing to read my blog.

If you are interested in reading excerpts from my book Concrete Promises, feel free to do so. Also, if you wish to buy the ebook copy, head on over to Lulu.com!

The deception and defeated tanginess…
behind me.
 
Mistakes…
buried six feet deep.
 
Heartbreak…
a figment of my imagination.
 
The dream…
still afloat.
 
The tunnel of darkness…
I escaped.

Angel’s Passion (Five-Year Anniversary)

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen. Yesterday, October the sixth, marked the five-year anniversary of my second book of poetry, Angel’s Passion being published by PublishAmerica. Time sure has elapsed in such a quick manner. In celebration of this milestone date in time, I will be posting five poems from the book. I hope you enjoy! Once more, I am grateful to everyone that has continued to visit my poetry blog. I know you have plenty of other choices.

Here’s the synopsis of Angel’s Passion:

“From the mind and heart of Charles Banks Jr. comes a poetic story of escaping the past and embracing the bright and vibrant light at the end of the tunnel. Angel’s Passion is the tale of a unique individual (Black Angel) who is lost within the confines of a self-inflicted dark tunnel. The tunnel is cold and is a constant reminder of the mistakes he has made in life. The tunnel of darkness serves as a greenhouse effect, a suppression of emotions, confliction of a confused mind, and a beacon of eternal despair. For Black Angel to escape this tunnel of darkness, the following are needed: love, freedom of spirituality, and self-understanding.”
