2. I LOOK FOR YOU IN OTHER TRUTHS

In this new collection of poetry, Ramon Loyola infuses his verses with the same sentimentality and poignancy evident in his debut work, not poems, just words.

I LOOK FOR YOU IN OTHER TRUTHS is full of afterthoughts and musings on what you see, smell, touch, hear and feel as you navigate the alleyways of grief, love and loss. It's about the chances you take and the choices you make, the potential and the promise of loving again and the hope of not failing again. It's about the excitement of another's touch and the ecstasy you feel when you dare to touch back. It's about the colours you see in someone else's eyes and the heartbeats you hear when you're standing really, really close to someone.

I LOOK FOR YOU IN OTHER TRUTHS is about your life that is waiting to be shared.

3. The Heaving Pavement: Epistles on an Anxious Life

Anxiety is an insidious condition. It is debilitating, frustrating and utterly life changing. It inhabits the shadows, the thick rays of light and the dense corners of the dark. In times when there seems to be no escape from it, the simplest thing—a warm touch, a sincere smile—could offer warmth, salvation and solace. This is how it is to be anxious, in epistles of simple truths.

The Heaving Pavement is an experimental memoir in verse, prose and illustrated forms.
