Words are our only tools to express the physicality of the chaos in our minds.
It is tedious and painstaking process to create something, anything. Emotions are not words, hence, to put them as such, requires quite a bit of searching, meandering and stumbling. I believe my affair with these alphabets will never be satiated. Yet, I have tried to sing some broken tunes, sket

I read this comfortably on my Kindle, but I wish I could have read it somewhere else to appreciate the pictures better. I could tell they were beautiful. They went really well with each poem and gave me an insight in

This collection reminded me how much I enjoy poetry. There are several lines which made me pause and reflect. The poems are short and easy to read. I recommend this to both poetry lovers and those who don't normally read poems.

There is something for everyone in this book. I can honestly say I resonated with many poems in this book, all the beautiful words spoke out to me in different ways but still captured exactly what I was feeling or what I have felt.
