Matthew’s poetry collection, Darkness Never Far, is published by Coffeetown Press., 8/31/2010 - St. Louis, MO.

Darkness Never Far is an exploration into the thoughts and feelings of an individual who has visited the darkest places of the human heart. ¬Fortunately, the author has now returned to teach the rest of us important lessons about human love and longing.

“Matthew ¬Freeman was my patient many years ago,” says John G. Csernansky, M.D. in the book’s introduction, “and I wondered then whether he would find the peace and happiness every person deserves. After reading Darkness Never Far, it is apparent that he is still seeking that peace. Matthew’s latest book of -poems takes us on a journey through the streets of St. Louis, so that we can look through his eyes at women, men, authority, medicine, ¬hopelessness, and hope.”

“I feel that nothing’s really happened until I write it down,” Matthew says. “I began ruined by love and hope to end that way. I like to walk the line between myth and delusion.”

Matthew Freeman woke up to find he was a poet when in high school he was nearly destroyed by love; accordingly, he then travelled from Alaska to New York, suffering and singing his songs. Having drifted in and out of hospitals, he finally began his recovery and was able to get three books of poems published. Currently Freeman is now finishing his degree at Saint Louis University; this fall he will teach his very first workshop.

Darkness Never Far is available in Kindle ($5.95) and print editions on,,, and Books can also be ordered through Hardcover ($23.95) and paperback editions will be soon available through the Baker and Taylor catalog.
