Dear Life, you are exhausting at times. You throw more tantrums than I have ever known possible. You slow down, you speed up, you take time and give time. Sometimes there is sunshine and other times there are storms. So I try to break it up a little, take risks, love a lot and find comfort in trying new things. But you are never the same Life, always changing, always keeping me guessing. So I will live you Life, to my absolute potential.
Sadly, I didn't enjoy this poetry collection as much as I wanted to. They're like rundown sentences, often times cheesy and it lacks substance especially on the first half of this collection. I like some pieces on the second half but it's forgettable and it didn't leave a huge impact on me.
To summarize everything, Pillow Thoughts is a portfolio of generic content framed using totally ...more
I think Courtney does have talent and she has put together a beautiful collection. I love the Jellyfish theme throughout this. As I said, there were several that rang like a pure bell calling me to a higher truth. That didn't happen often for me in this one. It could be me ...more
This book is split into many parts to read each of them depending on what you're feeling or what you're going through in life at the moment. If you're missing someone, if you're lonely, if you're in love.. and they're all so honest and raw.
Also, I sincerely hope the author found love, comfort, ...more
Pillow thoughts was beautifully written, very descriptive and with any poetry collection hopefully certain poems speak to you.
"I have been a little often on since the day I met you this is because I've never known what it was like it to be perfectly aligned"

It's a shame I can't share all of my favorite quotes, but here is one.
You can be in love at 3am or 5pm,
and sometimes it is with someone else
and other times it is with the way the sky looks
on a Saturday afternoon.
You need love, and love needs you.
You are the sun and the moon and every star
and you deserve someone who will cross the universe for you.
Life can be chaotic and sometimes people will hurt you,
but in the mi ...more
You could taste the overflowing emotions, the pain, the happiness, the longing and love. I really did enjoy reading it, and getting to know the person that wrote those poems, exposing herself out for everyone to judge and see. The fact that the author shared so intimate thoughts about people she was in love with and the pain she has gone through and the happiness that little things in life could g ...more
Viele der Gedichte habe ich mir markiert, weil ich sie mir mit Sicherheit nochmal durchlesen werde, weil sie mir so gut gefallen haben. Das "if you are missing someone" Kapitel fand ich persönlich ein bisschen eintönig, weil es sich komplett auf long distance relationships bezogen hat. Ich hätte es schö ...more
An extremely heartfelt collection of poetry. Courtney managed to craft a masterpiece that somehow expressed the thoughts that I always have in a way that I can never do. The poems speak to you. Courtney used simple and non-complex words that touch the heart, body and soul of whoever reads the book. It was impressive.
But truth be told, reading the book, I cannot say that I enjo ...more
