bloom by Enya Best is a magnificent self-published free verse poetry book that explores three chapters of the writer’s life. This collection hit me hard in the best way possible. The three chapters touch on topics like first love, heartbreak, physical and mental abuse and self love. My poetic side thoroughly enjoyed this short read, with only 91 pages of glorious, impactful, interpretive poems.

The first section of the collection, contains a beautiful 26 pages on the pain of heartbreak, broken promises, and abandonment. From my take of reading the collection this section also touches on a toxic relationship.

(favorite poem from this section lies in page 12.)

The second part of the collection focuses on the feeling of incompleteness, but also rising above it in the end. It touches on regret, one of the poems talks about being vulnerable and giving your body to someone who doesn’t deserve it. There are also poems about longing and missing a person (that we can all relate to as well).This was my second favorite section due to the self love and ‘finding yourself’ aspects of it.

Last, but not least my favorite section, this one is all about moving on, new love and the beautiful sunshine after the storm.

Many of the short-lined poems in this entire collection left me speechless. It was (to me) relatable in every sense of the word, pulling at my heartstrings with the simplest yet most impactful words. I devoured this book in one sitting.

Getting to read about self love after horrible circumstances in a relationship and seeing the author beginning to realize her self worth was incredibly beautiful.

I had many favorite poems from this collection, but my favorite lies on page 69:

i believe in love like
you believe in religion

i found safety in you
my salvation

Bloom is a great collection of poetry. Love is universal and this hits every string of emotion that we go through while loving and losing a partner. I will keep my copy handy as I know I will read this multiple times.
