The Devil Gets Lonely Too
Poetry from 2013-2016
by Thomas R. Langton

The Devil Gets Lonely Too is the debut collection of poetry by Thomas R. Langton. Containing a wide range of themes, the book offers everything from hope to despair in an exploration of the darker side of life.

‘Wrap me in darkness sweetheart
Darkness is my shroud
The black calls to me’

Using a colloquial style, Thomas writes a succinct collection with poems about happiness, depression and the monotony of everyday life. This work explores more serious subject matter, including bringing light to deeper issues such as anxiety and suicide.

Themes range from love and lust to happiness, heartache and depression. Thomas punctuates his poetry with references to biblical and historical figures to help illustrate his writing.

A dark, twisted and at times sobering read, The Devil Gets Lonely Too takes inspiration from the work of Charles Bukowski and George Orwell, and from the music of Patti Smith. Thomas’ book stems from a lifelong passion for writing and a love of gritty literature. The book will appeal to fans of poetry, especially those that enjoy mature and honest literature.

This is an amazing collection of poetry from a talented young writer. 'The Devil Gets Lonely Too' will take you to the depths of the abyss and serenade you in surreal imagery. Offering comfort, beauty, sinister laughs and sobering thoughts in an all consuming darkness.

An amazing collection of somewhat dark, yet uplifting collection of poems, that at times nearly reduced me to tears and in the next moment brought a wry smile. The variety and compelling nature of the verse gives the reader an insightful look at the mind of the Author. Highly recommended.

I cried a lot through this book some of it spoke to me, some of it seemed familiar. I finished it with a smile you make such lovely poetry! I wish you the best of luck for the future, I'll be waiting for the second book :)

Stunning and thought provoking debut, from the despair of love and jealously to witty and charming. Even a sound track to a mis-spent youth, worth investing in this fascinating young author.
