They are mere words., which can mean everything or they can mean nothing, such is their power. The spoken word, mightier. The whispered word, lighter. Keep your words precious beside you, they will win both wars and gold someday. ¿ Jade Jackson

Drunk Love Sober Death is a heartfelt and captivating collection of poems by Jade Jackson; influenced by being drunk, being in love, becoming sober, and dealing with death and grief; though not necessarily all at the same time.

Split into two books (both included), Book One features poems originally lost in a house fire. Saved only by a handwritten copy, gifted to a friend, Emma, who posted her notebook copy back to Jade a few months after the fire.

Book Two features works written after Jade removed alcohol from his life, bringing with it a clarity which allowed words to flow and from this came evocative and powerful poems.

Comprising over one hundred poems, songs and micro-stories. This book is a journey and upon reaching your destination, you'll have laughed, cried, pondered and loved.

Jade Jackson is an Author, Podcaster and Photographer, based in the Blue Mountains, Australia. He's published a play, Compass, along with a novella, a book of poetry, Drunk Love Sober Death, and he's also written hundreds of travel articles. Jade lost all his original writings in a house fire. He then lost several backup hard drives in a lightening strike and is forever grateful to whoever invented 'the cloud'. He produces three podcasts, Jade Talks Travel, Jade Talks Cheap Flights and Jade Talks Stuff. Travel and Poetry drive's him, and he loves the sound of words, often combining foreign words or phrases in his everyday speech because they are more pleasing to the ear than their English equivalents. He's ever searching for that one place to call home, yet he is at home, anywhere. You can find more of his works and connect with him via his website at https://jadejackson.com.au.
