Adrian Lovebook Carter
Adrian's motivational speeches infuse spoken word poetry as a creative approach to reinforce his message. The poetry becomes powertry as his words tackle the world system of politics, religion, education, marriage, socialization, and personal issues encountered by individuals on their life journey.
Adrian “Lovebook” Carter has published two books of poetry with accompanying spoken word albums. Dubbed “Lovebook” after the name of his books, poetry found Adrian in the third grade as a way to communicate his feelings when frustrated. He penned his first poem titled “Teachers, teachers are the meanest creatures” after being told by his teacher to sit and be quiet. Adrian spoke through his pen.
Noted for his creative writing skills, by fifth grade Adrian tested into the Gifted Magnet Program for Miami-Dade Public Schools. As Adrian matriculated to middle-school, he competed in the Dade County Youth Fair Poetry Expo, published a poem in an anthology book of poetry, and competed in the Miami Dade College Theodore Gibson Oratorical Project, in which he placed third in the finals for two consecutive years in the categories of original work and dramatic monologue.

- Eccentrich, Author & Poet
Lovebook is a rich collection of poems that capture the essence of love and spirituality. In parabolic ways it tackles the world system of politics, religion, education, marriage, socialization, and challenges encountered by individuals on their life journey.
Recognizing these conflicts in the world system, Lovebook presents a formula to reconcile, restore, and sustain individuals from the worldly notions of love that besets them from fulfilling perfection. Overall, Lovebook is very positive, encouraging and imploring collection of poems that introspectively looks at love in ways that it may not have been looked at before. Each poem must be revealed as they contain deeper meanings than what meets the eye. Lovebook contains several poetic formats including cinquains, haikus, free form, and sonnets.
Lovebook II is a rich collection of poems that unveils the essence of love and spirituality by providing an introspective guide to building interpersonal relationships. Lovebook II also shares how to avoid the all too familiar emotional roller coaster of falling in and out of (what some individuals call) love and adopting a renovatus mindset to being a spouse, parent, or friend.
Lovebook II recognizes “it’s not the problem that counts – it’s the solution.” Subsequently, the poems must be revealed as they call for a revolution that will not be tweeted. The Revolution Will be a renewing of the mind that fosters inclusion, multicultural appreciation, mentorship, conflict resolution, and the building of sustainable relationships founded on respect, trust, and honor – the tenants of The Ellison Model.
Lovebook II contains several poetic formats including haikus, free form, sonnets, and six-word stories.
When in love the sensual touch between lovers evokes a depth of emotion and connection that can only be perfectly aligned between spirit, soul, and body. Song of Adrian swoons into these feelings of Eros love through poetry, showing the appreciation and tenderness between lovers. The word play is foreplay that deeply caresses the heart into deeper depths and higher heights in that sacred space shared between perfect lovers, flowing with passion, romance, and eroticism.
Welcome to Lovebook III.
Problems don’t count
They’re not mathematically inclined
Problems can’t composite
They’re too busy being prime
-marily the focus
Hoping you’ll cosine
Going off on tangents
Through vectors of conflict lines
Problems have a standard deviation
From resolving situations
Problems carry combinations
With inaccurate approximations
Like misery loves company
Tries to form triangulations
Problems don’t count
They’re trapezoids of dilation
Problems don’t see how I've grown
It thinks I'm weak but I am strong
I know where Problems went wrong
For even shorthand division is long
Standing firm in your perfection
How you hate rejection
Not seeing your regression
Where problems rule, I’m the exception.
Solution is a numberer
It calculates concise
Solution understands the commutative property
Of multiplication in human life
Knowing there’s a plane
To sum the difference of contention
Methods to alleviate poverty
Is its exponential function
Solution has the transitive property
Of building inclusion properly
Solution negates the animosity
And compounds the possibility
To rightfully divide
And increase the probability
Solution loves to count
You into every opportunity
We have come to this conclusion
The answer is not exclusion
The solution is inclusion
Not evolution; it's revolution.
