For the past year I've been stumbling across gorgeous little poems written by Tyler Knott Gregson, so imagine my surprise when I discovered Chasers of the Light, an entire collection of his work. 

Typed on scraps of paper, old receipts, and other random bits and pieces, the majority of Gregson's poems are only a handful of lines long, but they resonate. Gregson is clearly a romantic... His words slip past the defenses of even the most bitter, with boarded-up hearts and cynical minds, reminding readers why we love, yearn for connection, and bare our souls. Many of his poems stray towards the philosophical and address insecurities, including depression. I'm drawn to the honesty in Gregson's poems. I know that, technically, he could type something, throw it away, and start again, but these poems, written with an old fashioned type writer and no convenient backspace, leave me with an impression of permanence and transparency. I find myself trusting Gregson's words.

For a taste of Gregson's work, check out some of my favorites below:


  1. I want to read this book! The UK and USA covers look completely different. :P

  2. I enjoyed this - I like the new movie-style trailers - and you kept it short and sweet. Looks like a cute read.
