Description

Tom Dockerill’s poetry collection, Chasing Time, is a culmination of nearly a decade of poetic ramblings and musings. Divided in to six thematic parts, the poems cover a range of topics with wit, passion and emotive language. Mental health is a prominent theme in the collection, and the honesty and transparency with which Tom presents his own struggles will resonate with many others who perhaps struggle to put words to their own difficulties.

If you were to throw romance, heartbreak, anxiety, depression, jealousy and nostalgia in to a cake mix, you might not end up with a delicious treat: but you will have sampled Chasing Time.

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading Tom’s new collection of poems featured in Chasing Time. He has a unique and honest way of writing. His words take you on a journey where you can truly absorb his feelings and easily picture the scenes he conjures up.

    I sensed elements akin to the works of Seamus Heaney, Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes (although controversial!). There is a distinct voice throughout Tom’s poetry which leads us through Chasing Time with intrigue and motivation.

    The chapter choices allow the poems to have further purpose, collecting them together into meaningful sections which allow the reader to grasp the full extent of the feelings behind the words.

    The elegiac poems are written with relatable and commemorative lexis, which only allow us to learn even more about Tom’s way of thinking.

    Original, well-paced, critical and in places, deliciously shocking, Chasing Time is an exquisite read, and will certainly stick with you!

    Also fantastic that profits will be split between two particularly relevant charities, Mind UK and Alzheimer’s Society.

    I am Currently Glancing through and reading the Poems and the Excerpts from Your Diary, They are Very well wrote and thought provoking.
    Very Dark in places and make me want to know/read more…. I myself have been in dark places and can relate to some of the poems and Diary, but unlike You have not got the abiltity to Pen thoughts down…..

    Well Done Tom
