Poetry BVD 2021

Welcome to the 2021 Valentine’s Day poetry issue! Here’s to love in all its multifaceted dimensions . . . Obsession? Yes! Revenge? Yes! Disturbing? Of course!

And just remember to pay attention, to really pay attention, to what you ask for, as those fantasies you explore may just manifest in dreams and nightmares – in your daily lives!

Here’s to celebrating love – and poetry! Please join me in thanking all of the poets sharing their work for this issue!

Until next time, I’m yours in the darkness and those shadow realms where we thrive!
