by Christopher Marks

It Doesn’t Take A Whole Day
is a compilation of different aspects of my life with regards to the journey I have taken in relationships and love. In each chapter, I have captured different feelings and emotions that relate to those themes.

Music, in my opinion, can teach us not only about the artist but about ourselves. Admiration is simply that: admiring someone, not just from a physical standpoint but all aspects of that individual. Memories consist of poems from past thoughts and feelings, both good and not so good. Creativity is made up of four poems that just started from a thought and grew into something much deeper. Love, the final and largest chapter, is what it is: poems about loving someone. True feelings are expressed in black and white.

Reader Review
“ I haven’t been a very avid reader throughout my life,” he admitted. “I started writing when a relationship didn’t work out. It just kind of grew from there.” “It Doesn’t Take a Whole Day” is basically a book of love poems, he explained, written about that relationship as well as others. There’s a lot in there about how people touch other’s lives, about how someone might be admired. The title comes from, he continued, just a phrase that he’d heard, “It doesn’t take a whole day to recognize sunshine” being the entire phrase. “It doesn’t take long for you to realize the goodness of people, the integrity,” he added.
