"The use of constrained rhyme rings of tradition yet is controlled in such a way that it reflects the poet's unique style. Without completely breaking of the past, this poet remains true to our modern context-adopting an older convention to a newer usage." -International Society of Poets Shades of Passion is a collection of fifty-nine passionately written original poems on a variety of topics. Countless metaphors paint vivid mental pictures dealing with the dark and light sides of love, religion, the world, and the eternal struggle between good and evil. Author Chad Shaim instills great enthusiasm in his words, allowing his poems to truly come to life. His poetry is "open" so you can put your own meaning behind each of his works. Shaim focuses on capturing the mood and the spirit of the moment and gives you the opportunity to complete the story. By looking at the poems in Shades of Passion-not from your viewpoint, but as if you are actually speaking them-you can make the experience a truly personal one.
