Excerpt Tour + #Giveaway: Addiction to Poetry by Trevor Muir @GoddessFish


Addiction to Poetry

by Trevor Muir

GENRE: Poetry


This book is a compilation of all the poems I have written in my life. Each one comes from a very personal place within me. Some of the poems truly show me at my most fearful, sad, and lonely moments in my life, and others are examples of how I was feeling at a time when I was desperate and lost all hope.

Some are of love, hope, a general wonder or curiosity, and accomplishment, and others came from the experiences of people closest to me.

I have added a page that briefly describes where the inspiration for the poem(s) came from, to help better tell the story. For me, poems and writing became a personal outlet. They have given me a safe way to express my thoughts and feelings.

I hope you enjoy them. If they are at all relatable than that’s even better. I hope that those who read these, and identify with them, will see that no matter how rough life may seem at any given time, it can get better if you just keep going.

Although the poems within these pages may be a bit random and unorganized, as is my life sometimes, they are raw and real. They are as I wrote them at that time.

I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to read any or all of them, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I am sure my Mom will.


If my love for you could be measured

I wrote this for my wife on her birthday one year. It came to me while I was sitting in my truck so, I wrote it in her birthday card right before I gave it to her. – Trev

If my love could be measured in raindrops, then

my love it would flood the whole earth.

If my love could be measured in diamonds and

gold, then my love it would have endless worth.

If my love could be measured in miles,

then my love would go on endlessly.

If my love could be measured in sunlight,

then my love would be too bright to see.

If my love could be measured in time,

then forever would not compare.

Though my love for you cannot be measured,

in my heart you will always be there.
