Walking in Blind is a collection of poetry written over the past decade which are portrayals of personal experiences as well as depictions of others’ distresses. It comprises of over 40 poems, mostly melancholic and thoughtful, while a few boast a more elated note. Whatever the mood, one will always find them relatable, thought provoking and always a wonderful experience to immerse oneself in.

Kaviru Samarawickrama is an artist and poet who finds refuge in dealing with trauma and misfortune through painting and writing which takes up most of her free time. She is currently employed at one of the leading art galleries in Colombo and is pursuing postgraduate studies in the field of Information Technology.

Her energetic and spontaneous personality has always been a catalyst through which inspiration is later born in her poetic compositions. Mood swings and cravings are often seen within her colourful personality, sometimes resulting in heated discussions and rants, leading to more creativity. When in high spirits, she’s a sight to see (and hear) at numerous open mics, a commanding presence through her creativity, despite her usual self-consciousness.
