From the Preface:
"I revisited the past to collect these poems together,
aboard the same train of thought I travelled when I wrote them. I didn't
recognise the destination, even though the landmarks remain today. I still
paint my life on a canvas of love; it's just that the colours I use are not
the same. The pictures I paint today will hang in the galleries of my mind,
reflecting yesterday, but without understanding.
We build our lives as sand castles; no matter how secure we
feel, the sand can be washed away by the tide. I write because I need to;
it's an outlet for my emotions, and when I wrote these poems I felt no
greater need. There is something special hidden amongst the words, something
that will never be the same again. The castles I built, in the innocence of
my youth, has been lost forever in the waves."
