Publisher's Summary

These 25 poems explore the dark paths on our walks through life: addiction, bereavement, solitude. These are the forgotten spaces, blighted areas we pretend don't exist. Everybody's got one. For some, it's outside their windows; others, it's under their very roofs. But regardless of where these dark places are, a pit of quicksand is just as deadly no matter where located. Tread lightly.

    "Memorable Poetry Performed By Award-Winning Poet"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Forgotten Spaces: Poetry for a Pensive Mood to be better than the print version?

    The print version is excellent in its own right, but narrator Shawn Aveningo's performance of the work really makes this audiobook stand out. Ms. Aveningo is an award-winning poet whose work has appeared in dozens of publications worldwide, and her expertise shows in performance of this audiobook. Her voice is nuanced yet forceful; her delivery and timing are top-notch. All of this combines to make this audiobook an exceptional addition to the poetry-lover's collection, especially those who prefer brooding, moody poetry.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This is a book of poetry, and so there are no characters, per se.


    Have you listened to any of Shawn Aveningo’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first of Shawn Aveningo’s performances that I have listened to, and it was wonderful.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Memorable Poetry Performed By Award-Winning Poet
