Letters to an Imaginary Friend

Letters to an Imaginary Friend - kdp OP

This is an epistolary novella written in verse. It came about when I wanted to put all my poetry together in a bundle and noticed certain themes popping up continuously. I decided to edit the poems and pad them out to turn everything into a coherent story. This is the result.


When 16 year old M. writes an open letter to God, the teen unwittingly starts a chain of verse letters, and not all of these are from mortals…

Sometimes dramatic and emotional, sometimes sharp and witty, these poems tell two stories that somehow come to intertwine with each other. One is a bitter tale of love, jealousy and madness between three friends. The other tries to show the well-known history between the Father and His unfavorite son in a different light.

One thing is for certain – more than one person’s life changed through this battle of pens.
