OF LOVE AND WAR   
A collection of poems

By Jacob Paul Patchen

Of Love and War is divided into 4 parts: Fighting, Dying, Remembering, and Living. Each part represents a small chapter to the overall story of the book.

Of Love and War is a mix of Free Verse, Prose, and Narrative poetry that gives specific focus to the combat stresses, PTSD, boredom, and losses associated with author's deployment to Iraq in 2005 as an infantry Marine. It also meshes this bold, intense, and sometimes unforgiving voice with that of a softer, gentler, and sometimes macho or alpha male tone about love and the failings of. With great insight into the mind of a warrior, and the deteriorating affects that war has on the mind and body, Of Love and War is a book just as much about life, as it is about the struggles of war.

Full of wit, grit, honesty and sacrifice, Of Love and War brings a new, fresh, smack-you-right-in-the-face voice of a common man meant to experience extraordinary things.

 

Jacob Paul Patchen was born and raised outside of Byesville, Ohio where he spent his youth tormenting babysitters and hiding in trees. Patchen earns his inspiration through experience, where he writes abundantly about love, war, sex, family and drinking. Jacob is a poet, an author, blogger and combat veteran. He debuted with his 5 star rated book, Life Lessons from Grandpa and His Chicken Coop: A Playful Journey Through Some Serious Sh*t (2015) and Talking S.H.I.T. (Social, Humorous, and Inspirational Thoughts) (2017). Patchen is published in several literary journals, including New Millennium Writings, Into the Void Magazine, The Deadly Writers Patrol, and Lost Lake Folk Opera Magazine. He has also been selected as a finalist in many poetry competitions.
