We Walk Alone

4.68  ·  Rating details ·  22 Ratings  ·  10 Reviews
We each are but a grain of sand on a beach, a cog in a great time piece. We are surrounded, yet solitary, wanting to be part of the whole while aching to be individual. We search for those special connections, reaching out with hope but holding back with trepidation, our hearts wanting one thing when our minds are saying something different. Yet within this battle, despite ...more

Short and sweet:
If you enjoy brevity and poetic insights into the imperfect intricacies of love, loss, and life, this is the book of poetry for you.

Lengthier analysis:
This collection of poetry has something for everyone. Whether you're looking for light-hearted wit, rhyme and rhythm, sexual innuendo and double entendre, rich emotions, metaphor, and imagery, or just relatable content, you'll find it somewhere in the book, and that is what makes it great.

One of the first things you'll notice is

It's almost impossible for me to review my own work, of course I love it, it's mine. I write because I love to and my only hope is that some of you out there like my work.

In this book there’s a poem titled We Walk Alone. The book centers around this idea, this realization that though we may walk the same path as others, we’re all alone in the end. That’s a line that I first heard on True Blood. It stuck with me, it resonated somewhere down inside me and it just made sense.

Not one other person o

I was given a PDF copy to read this morning.
I would just like to say, first off, I love sharing the same first name with a wonderful person. (A bit on the side, haha.)
Anyways...
My review is nothing but greatness. I've never read poems such as these. They remind me of Shel Silverstein's works. So simple, yet so complex.
The words ring in your ears as you read through.
I will definitely buy myself a copy once it is released.

Sent to me in a surprise package from the author about two months ago, I FINALLY got around to reading it! This is full of some complex, thought-provoking poems, so naturally, I loved it. My favorite in the collection is the title poem, "We Walk Alone" because even though I am surrounded by loving family and friends, I almost always feel like I am walking this world alone. I have been in a reading slump the past few months, and I'm noticing that poetry usually helps me get out of them, so here's ...more

This review first appeared in The Compulsive Reader (http://www.compulsivereader.com/2014/...)

The poems in We Walk Alone by Mariah E. Wilson, remind me of the great writer John Edgar Wideman’s description of one of his characters in his Damballah. Wideman writes, “He has the gift of feeling. Things don’t touch him, they imprint.” Wilson, too, has the gift of feeling. Things don’t touch her, they imprint. For evidence, read her poetry.

In You Remind Me, Wilson warns that the universe can “be heavy

I received an ARC PDF copy in exchange for an honest review.

In her debut book of poetry Mariah explores how even in all our connectedness there is still a part of us that walks alone. I love the use of imagery in her poems with Conversations In The Rain, Linger, We Walk Alone, Dandelion Daydreams, Broken Toys, The Echo Remains and One Night being particular favorites. Broken Toys reminded me so much of my brother and brought back childhood memories for me.

An enjoyable read and one that many ca

I was fortunate to be given a pre-release copy of this collection. I should preface this review by admitting that I am generally not a fan of poetry. It tends to go over my head (the same way physic does). However, I found this book to be excellent... several of the poems 'spoke' to me on a very personal level. I found myself smiling through some poems, and tearing up through others... I was deeply moved.

I highly recommend adding this book to your collection, and personally am looking forward to

I was given a PDF of this today. Such a beautiful collection of poetry. The imagery is strong and the words stick with you.
I smiled when I read Conversations in the Rain because I've been that girl standing out in the rain to feel something.
Another piece that stood out to me was Claire. I especially loved the last stanza. I'm a poet myself but could never achieve the light atmosphere as Mariah does so flawlessly. I feel like this is the kind of poetry book that I'd go back to and make notes in
