This collection of ink splattered in brevity — three line poems — is dedicated to “you.” The “you” being anyone that’s experienced loss, heartache and pain, which makes reading this a surefire exhibit in bleeding monuments to those memories, as most people can relate to those emotions, I imagine.

The author, Grace Black, dabbles in the dichotomous pull of love: its ability to take and give pain in equal measure, as she noted in a recent interview.

Many of the three line poems are visceral, as she

Yesterday, I received "Three Lines" by Grace Black.

I read the book in two days.
I'm not a big reader of books, I love them, but I just fall asleep generally when I'm reading. So, that deters me from reading a lot.

So, there you go on the time frame on how long it should take to read through her book.

The poems are short, just 3 lines as the title says. I recommend reading the book several times and pick out the ones you enjoy the most and reread them.

This book of poetry may be small in size, but it does not lack heart and soul. Beautifully written three line poems speak literal volumes. Each of the poems are written as stand-alone pieces, yet they all flow together such perfect style and 'Grace'. Black's pen and paper make for an excellent union. She speaks from a true voice, and like the back of the book says 'a heart unedited.' The cover of the book itself is done in beautiful simplicity. Less really is more.

I love poetry and I enjoy reading it. When I came across this book, I decided to download it after reading all of the good reviews. I like the idea of having 3 line poetry. This is such a creative and unique concept, which is not like the other poetry books that I have read before in the past. I could tell that the author really unleashed her soul in this book and let the reader in to her deep inner thoughts. Not only is this book emotional, it also causes you to think about the prose and what i ...more

Raw. Edgy. Succinctly smooth. Three Lines... packs individual themes of emotion on every page, with brevity... and brilliance.

Stunning, bare, soul-dissolving. Black possesses incredible economy of words. Three lines is all she needs to capture, strip, and feed the mind.

Grace Black mingles with words as she navigates this realm.

“If you reveal everything, bare every feeling, ask for understanding, you lose something crucial to your sense of yourself. You need to know things that others don't know. It's what no one knows about you that allows you to know yourself.”
― Don DeLillo, Point Omega
