The book contains series of powerful poems, with lively lines that turns to evoke the reader's instincts.Some of the headings are:
-first love(love's Journey),
-a wish on fire
-come with me
-eyes closed,hoping for a rhyme.

Pain's poetry is not for the faint-hearted but then again, neither is life. Her poems are raw, graphic and passionate. She shares her journey with us as well as the wisdom she gained from it.

At the end, she explains her intentions in a letter to the reader. I especially enjoyed this. People (especially young women) need to read this and take note of her message. The following words stood out for me: "Dreamers stand out from a graying background of people who are suppressed for whatever reason.

Rating 3.5 stars- Heartfelt and Purposeful

It does not take long upon reading V. Pain's work to realize that her poems are a labor of love. She speaks from a place of earnestness and sincerity about the universal female experience. The intoxication of infatuation, the frustration of failed relationships, the pain of missing someone you used to know/love, the joy of motherhood-all can be found in her poetry.

I especially enjoyed her "Nightmare" poems, the poems to her children, and the ones in

With chapters like Daydreams, Nightmares, Vibin' and Truth Hurts, many different poems come together to make up this collection. It is a reflection of the changes and challenges of one woman as she transitions from her clumsy stumble into adulthood, into a woman and mother. Many can relate. Some favorites of the author are Now What (2007), Come With Me (2012) and Should We Be?(2002) This book confesses, laughs, cries and rages in all the right places. Between the words, you may see a snapshot of ...more

By high school, VPain had joined the Speech ...more
