Before Crissi Langwell wrote fiction, she needed to find a way to create prose in her storytelling. Through poetry, she found it. These verses travel through emotions of love, heartache, joy, and despair. Some of the poems are true, many were poems wished to be true. And all of them are words that led to love, brand new worlds, and stories that needed to be told.

These are

I admire Crissi Langwell’s strong poems, and wish to read more of them. I find them beautifully poetic, touching, real and specific.

I didn't like all the poems in this book though. The beginning of the book pulled me in with many amazing dazzling metaphors (a lot more about that, below), human connections and situations. But then came a few poems which didn't intrigue me as much (for ex: small, white blossoms, fallen knight).
Then "vulnerable" brought me back the style I liked, but I kept feeling

**I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway**

This is my first time reading any of Crissi Langwell's work and I am so thankful I got the opportunity to do so. This book is filled with bittersweet emotions and words that paint pictures of feelings she had and moments she experienced. It plays at your heart strings at times and is able to be related to in a very unique way. I am absolutely in love with this book and have read it over and over again. Amazing book by an amazing woman who isn't afraid t

Langwell has given us some fifty-four poems, in free verse, of surprising range and power. From the opening poem, Her Heart Fell to the Ground, you will be ambushed by lines like these: “And how easily she gave you hers, /And how easily I gave you mine, /And how I even forgot to tell you /I was giving you my heart /As you swiftly walked around it.” It is impossible for me to set this up as well as it is in the poem. Langwell uses repetition occasionally, but with great effect.

Wow, Crissi amazes me again! Seriously. I read the Kindle version of this book on my iPad and it was beautiful. I am going to buy the print version as well, because it's a beautiful collection and a work of art. I've said it before that Crissi is multi-talented and I'm a huge fan. This review is sincere. If you love poetry, then buy this book. My jaws dropped after reading her poem The Queen. I laughed when reading Musical Poetry because I've wondered the exact same thing. I cried when reading S ...more

I love it. This book has me so inspired to start writing down everything in my life that is hard to talk about with anybody. Sometimes things inside you just don't want to tell people but putting it in a poem is so much better to get all of your feeling and emotions out. It was very inspiring. Thank you soooo much for the giveaway...!! Good luck in life. ...more

A poignant collection of poems that strike a chord on everything from love, to loss, to awe
and wonder. Even though this is her first foray into published poetry, Crissi's poems are so alive and rich, I would honestly put them in a top 15 with the likes of Frost, Elliott and yes, even Shakespeare.

A collection of bittersweet poems that will touch your heart. Touching and moving you as you read each line. Beautifull and painfull at times.
