About the Book

If you read this then you would obviously want to know about mental illness or are maybe curious about schizophrenia in some form. This compilation of diverse introspections is a manifestation of the schizophrenic mind in words of somewhat poetic form. Words we use every day, mindlessly repeating sounds and communicating, sending messages in the language we understand. These words in this book are dedicated to those who dare to want to know about this illness and have it communicated to them. Because we don’t speak to each other day to day in poetic forms, we often have to stop, and reside with it for an enlightening experience to come about. Perhaps the reader will find one of those doorways into another world in which a sufferer exists alone and invisible. It’s when you dare to stop and allow your being to be enveloped by these words and references that you drift through “The Dreaming Gates” to your own visceral response. This response is what gives these words adequately reasonable meaning in today’s world.


About the Author

David Tenney-Maxwell had a deep burning passion inside when he left his home. In his mid-teens he traveled abroad alone and in search for the missing pieces of his troubled mind. After this at age 17, the onset of mental illness and schizophrenia changed his life and perspectives forever. After many excruciating moments of darkness a pinprick of light manifested itself. It was his faith and a new found ability to express his journey and experiences through his writing. Armed with nothing more than a high school certificate and an intense desire to fight on, he gathered the courage to share his intensely honest poetry and a deeply personal learning curve through life.
