Drunk Love Sober Death is a heartfelt and captivating collection of poems by Jade Jackson; influenced by being drunk, being in love, becoming sober, and dealing with death and grief; though not necessarily all at the same time.
Split into two books (both included), Book One features poems originally lost in a house fire. Saved only by a handwritten copy, gifted to a friend, Emma, who posted her notebook copy back to Jade a few months after the fire.
Book Two features works written after Jade removed alcohol from his life, bringing with it a clarity which allowed words to flow and from this came evocative and powerful poems.
Comprising over one hundred poems, songs and micro-stories. This book is a journey and upon reaching your destination, you’ll have laughed, cried, pondered and loved. Discover and explore Drunk Love Sober Death: Poetry by Jade Jackson.

'They are mere words., which can mean everything or they can mean nothing, such is their power. The spoken word, mightier. The whispered word, lighter. Keep your words precious beside you, they will win both wars and gold someday'. ⎯ Jade Jackson
