From GOOD NIGHT, NURSE:
This place is called Harmony
This place is called Rest
The cheat to the Test
Here Ashes are breathing
Here Ashes respect
The Fear and the Suff'ring
Here have no effect
Again All are one where
Again All are free
Behind or below or
Above, only Me.

LLOYD MATTHEW THOMPSON refers to the period of his life these
poems were born of as "The Flailing Years." As he came out of what
he'd been raised with and all he'd ever known, he followed his Heart
through alleys and staircases, struggling to find his way and his Self.
From shifty religions and spiritual concepts to rocky relationships
and family drama, Lloyd sought his truth with every breath.

Step into the mind of a man battling doubt, anxiety and despair.
A collection of over 150 poems about OCD and depression. I wrote these over the last 4 years, after making the shocking discovery that I'd been living with undiagnosed "Pure O" OCD all of my adult life.
Through supplementary sections at the back of the book, I'll teach you a little bit about OCD & depression; I'll walk you through my lifelong journey with OCD; I will take a look at certain assumptions that get made about OCD regarding CBT therapy and SSRI medication; and finally I'll tie it all together with a controversial critique on how governments, big pharma and private healthcare companies exploit those assumptions for profit.
Maybe you have OCD or depression?
Maybe you just want to learn more about these disorders and what it's like to have them?
Maybe, just like me 4 years ago, you have undiagnosed Pure O OCD and don't even realise it yet?
Whichever the case, I hope that my book will resonate, educate, and ...

The book contains 180 original, contemporary haiku, tanka, and short poetic prose entries about empowering the inner self, with breathing room for a mindful unfolding of the words or the reader's personal response (which can be done directly on the pages). The entries resonate and build to create an extended meditation on love, healing after loss, forgiveness, happiness, hope, wonder, and simple abundance. Small Stones from the River is a companion for journaling or journeying. "The door that opens is within yourself."
