"a thorn in my side—I put it there, ruin my own days, keep strange hours."

"to survive means forget, means to misremember, dismember
the old shadow room. don’t make me live without—I speak
to no one in particular."

Poetry is always a mixed bag - people see different things in different arrangements of words and it either speaks to you or it doesn't. It's more emotional. I really loved this collection of short poems - I reread a few of them to glean their entire meaning - beautiful.

I loved this short little chapbook of poetry. Each one reads like a slightly warped, darker version of fairytale dripping with sinister images and connotations. The first poem, Hex is amazing, a disturbing blend of sweet and gory. Covet is amazing as well. I especially enjoyed the line like doll blood, doll in a pale sheet. Actually, all of the poems are amazing. Please can I have some more?

Emily's imagery never ceases to remind me why I sometimes miss writing poetry (oops)

Unoriginal. Slightly above average tumblr type poetry. Nonetheless well written and put. No sense of uniqueness to the author. 2.5/5
