Age and Beauty Her beauty was that of a princess in a fairy tale with a body that was as perfect just like a bottle of hundred year old red wine He was a Poet that wrote of women just like her in his epic love poems all of the time she was the timeless beauty who had the essence of Marilyn Monroe he was wanting to create a new poem on her on a blanket under a full moon on some hot midsummer night two hearts lost that were beating as one just trying to find their way but alas time was most definitely not on his side while she had all the time in world for she was just starting her life and he was half way through they were only friends though he wanted much more He was the age when he wrote of a love from the beginning of time she was all the beauty that he dreamed of in his masterpieces he would write whenever she was around she never even had to make a sound the poetry that he wrote in his head where simply amazing and the ones that he wrote for the world to see absolutely lovely as could be she was just as wild as a northern wind in a perfect storm with a wild soul that wanted so much more he lived a hundred lives in his dreams that would play in his mind

Chapter 1: Richard M Knittle Jr.

Richard M Knittle Jr. is a master poet. He bleeds truth on a page with a vulnerable sincerity. He has walked the paths of darkness, cried to the heavens, wrestled with his demons, and lived to see the glory of hope. His ability to deliver words of pure darkness from a personal understanding leaving a soul touched with hope is delivered with nothing less than a savior’s breath. Reading his poetry is a connection to the friend everyone hopes to have.

Richard M. Knittle is a number one bestselling author and poet with fifteen books to his credit. The darkness of life left him in addiction, sorrow, and misfortune; a path leaving most debilitated. He relentlessly fought his demons empowering himself with understanding and empathy bleeding out in his poetry.

Richard’s fight for the son, not acknowledged through blood, put this poet in a battle of words with a judicial system bent on keeping the properness of law but not necessarily the law of righteousness. His courage and tenacity blessed him with the right to be the father in his son Ryder’s life.

The epitome of heroic. Richard is a veteran of two services in the US Navy and US Army National Guard with three honorable discharges. Although, he suffers with clinical depression and PTSD; he uses his struggles to advocate for all veterans. He enjoys presenting his poetry live on stage to audiences through groups such as Spoken Word Poetry. He is not only a poet but a published songwriter. I had the pleasure of being a guest on his radio show Poetry because it matters. His warmth and honest sincerity is very much mirrored his poetic words. It was an experience I will always remember. He is a treasured friend and inspiration to all who read his poetry and are blessed to know him.
