Haunt by Ryan Meyer is a collection of poetry that centers around loss, death, and darkness.

Full disclosure: I was given a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. This did not affect my rating in any way.

First things first, I love that some of the titles are from songs from bands. Two titles were from Chevelle songs, and you bet I spent the next few days at work listening to nothing but Chevelle!

This collection has poems about death, loss, and other dark things such as watching someone you love get addicted to drugs, inviting darkness in, sacrificing, letting go, and much more.

Ryan Meyer's first book of poetry is an evocative exploration of what frightens us and why. I love the story-like narrative he writes in - each poem feels like looking at a sliver of someone else's life through a microscope.

While I thoroughly enjoyed the entire collectipn, my favorite works were "Occasionally, the Moon" and "We Fear The Worst." The former is celestially romantic with an emphasis on the otherworldly quality of a first love that gave me a wistful longing. The latter approaches an apocalyptic scenario from an unsettling mundaneness. The simplicity of it feels almost sadder than chaos or panic, and reading it, I couldn't help but think on how I might react in the same situation.

A fantastic read that I would highly recommend.
