Pillow Thoughts is a collection of poetry and prose about heartbreak, love, and raw emotions. It is divided into sections to read when you feel you need them most.
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
"I hate to spoil the ending
but You is fine
You is still here
You is going to make it"
I like how each section is labeled on what you are feeling right now and what mood you are in when you read it. I have always wished there were poems books that were like this because it would be so helpful. . . and now I found one.
Some of the poems were too straight forward for my taste and I was not a fan of all of them. This wa ...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"
Pillow thoughts was something i hadnt heard anything about ...more
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
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
