"Dark Currents" shares poetry author's two-year period of severe depression

BROOKLYN, N.Y., Feb. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- During a two-year time period, author Arthur F. Temple kept a journal, in which the basic underlying quality of his life on all levels had become intolerable, and the result is this fascinating book of poetry, "Dark Currents" (published by iUniverse).

In nearly 100 poems, Temple shares his heartfelt feelings of extremely difficult times in his life, from an abusive childhood, being laid off from his job, having his friendships and marriage severely strained, followed by a time period of great physical suffering. The physical suffering was the result of multiple serious health issues. Due to his deteriorating health, he was "holed up" in an apartment for nearly the entire two years with the exception of hospital room visits and subsequent visits to several specialists.

A friend suggested that writing might help him through his depression and even be cathartic for him. With most of the selections written in prose poetry, Temple's thoughts are divided into four chapters: Memories, Proverbs, Society and Abyss.

"Memories" deals with abhorrent childhood and young adult memories. "Proverbs" is the result of his daily observations since childhood. "Society" reflects on his thoughts of daily current events. "Abyss" was written at the height of his depression and moments when he was not even lucid.

As in "Responsibility" from the "Proverbs" chapter:

It is easier for mankind to deny truth to shed itself from responsibility.

What would transpire if the listless masses woke from their slumber?

Temple is also an artist, as each piece of poetry comes with an abstract piece of art related to the subject matter.
