About the Book

Thirteen years ago, I led a very dark and disturbing life, and I was suffering severely with mental illness and drug addiction. During this dark period of my life, I isolated myself from my family, friends and the world in my little den on Long Island. While I was in my “Den of Darkness” I did something else besides drugs and drinking, I sat at my desk and wrote poetry. Hundreds and hundreds of poems that stored in my desk top computer. These poems were not written in a proper state of mind. Unfortunately, because of the mind set I was in at that time, my poetry is very dark and disturbing, but when I think about it -- isn’t Batman dark and disturbing? These poems describe the way I felt when I lived in my “Den Where I Cried.”

About the Author

David Anthony Daniels is a retired NYC Correction Officer and has been writng poetry ever since he was a young boy. At the age of 30 he suffered a mental breakdown and five years later had no choice but to retire from the Dept. because of his illness. "Writing poetry is very therapeutic for me," says Daniels. "It is the only thing that keeps me sane. I spend a lot of time in my den writng about my depression, my anger and even my happiness. It really helps me to write my feelings down and one day I hope to write a novel about my experiences working as a NYC Correction Officer while suffering with a mental illness." Daniels currently lives in Long Island with his wife and two children but unfortunately he is in the process of getting a divorce. " I don't know what the future will hold for me or where I will go. But this I do know , I will continue to write because writing gives me the strength and the courage to continue on no matter how difficult the road I travel becomes."
