Poetry in itself is often subtle with undulating undercurrents which hint at the emotions of the poet, though at times it is also raw and exposes our normally hidden feelings. Myers successfully negotiates both styles, at times his words are gentle and whispered, but at others he portrays starkly subjects such as hurt, betrayal, and loss.
Classic poetry with a contemporary twist he crosses gender barriers to write from multiple perspectives which are both powerfully poignant and passionately revealing. From short stanzas to such epic length poems as The Kiss he creates images that connect and illuminate whilst exploring the darker side of relationships. Our wants, our fantasies, jealousy, abuse and obsession, but more importantly the consequences of our actions.

Not your typical book of war poetry, these verses rather examine the feelings and emotions which lie, often hidden, behind the face of war and conflict. Snapshots exploring the perspectives of different genders, ages, and ethical views blend together to present a powerful and poignant picture of how war affects humans-individually, as groups, and even as the human race. Those fighting, those left at home, those who suffer both emotional, mental and physical loss, and those who refuse to fight are all represented with no accusation or discrimination, rather with understanding. The words grapple with matters of the head, and of the heart, and refuse to shy away from the stark reality of war, describing eloquently both comradeship and loneliness, patriotism and futility, love and loss.

“If ever there was a perfect match it would be love and poetry: the countless interpretations of love matched only by the infinite capacity of poetry to embrace it.
Love Lies Within is a bittersweet union with Myers serving us straightforward romantic paean to marvellous effect. From lost love to unrequited love, to the sacrifices made in the name of it, to the heroic deeds that elevate it to mythical proportions. He runs the gamut of emotions.
Lifts us up and leaves us bereft in the space of a few brief lines or has us hanging on every word with epics like The Kiss and The Fallen. Myers courts us with intimate descriptions of time with, and away from a lover, which strike a chord in those have felt the intense first flush of love, or the desolation of separation. Tragic, cautionary, and wholly unforgettable, this is poetry for lovers and for those in search of the perfect words to express how they feel.
