Naked Shadowboxing gives the reader a glimpse inside addiction, schizophrenia, depression, poverty and love. A journey through the turmoil of madness and loss, broken dreams and heartache. A soul cleansing introspection of a life on the edge, and insights and wisdom gained through the experience of a harsh reality. A sublime retrospection of deliverence from the pain of self-destruction. Leake takes the reader through an existential evaluation of life, death and the pursuit of immortality, presented in vivid, at times intense imagery that truly captures the peaks and valleys of life.The quintessential collection of Grunge Poetry,Steven's works tackle subjects often cast aside as not having a place in mainstream literature and not taken into serious consideration by older disconnected magazines.
