It has been one week since The Unaccompanied was released. A huge thank you to everyone who has bought a copy so far and supported this latest endeavour. It means more than I can say. Lkes and comments are wonderful, but when you buy a book it really supports me and this dream of mine in the most effective way possible. It has never been about making money for me, I just want to reach as many readers as possible in the hope that my words might resonate with others. So I want to express my deepest gratitude to everyone who has supported me by buying a copy of this or any of my other books through the years. Thank you 💖

“There is a war that rages inside every heart —
A battle between the light and the dark.”
– The Battle.
This conflict is the thread that weaves the poems in Phillip Mellor’s ninth collection of poetry together. From the protagonist in the opening poem Main Event refusing to “take a knee”, to the title poem that closes the book, the poet takes us on a journey into the human heart and mind and asks, if we leave love behind us, what steps in to take its place?
Thoroughly modern, yet rooted in ancient ideals and metaphors, The Unaccompanied is a master work of emotional and spiritual exploration from a poet at the zenith of his powers.
