Admittedly I am just a smidge biased on this one as it is my book, but I can say that 12 out of 5 did I pour my whole heart and soul into these poems. They tell personal tales of failures and triumphs, loves and losses, and address my journey to learn faith in the face of adversity. I do hope that you all enjoy reading them as much as I treasured each moment writing them and that you are able to drop a rating or review here on Goodreads if you did! Be well dear readers, and look for updates on a ...more
Wowie wow wow!!!! What a raw and deeply emotional read. I haven't been this touched by a book in a WHILE. Elayna is a master wordsmith and poet, using the tempo of her poetry to her advantage to weave just absolute gut punches of art that hit their notes perfectly There's so much beauty in this collection of poetry and it gives such a warm light of comfort along the way. I hope it touches everyone who reads it and their heart as much as it touched me because I absolutely adored this riveting col ...more

I’m glad I read this poetry collection. When I reached "Starved," I had to put the book down and step away before coming back to it. It was that emotional and beautiful of a poem. Darcy is somehow able to communicate the trials of her depression while still leaving you with a tender sense of hope. I’ll be gifting Unraveling Light to friends, and I look forward to seeing more of Darcy's work. ...more

This book moved me in ways I didn’t expect. I could relate to many themes present, and it’s the first time I’ve ever felt truly understood while reading poetry. This book is a beautiful work of art, and I definitely recommend giving it a read. You’ll love it. :)

It's not often that I pick up poetry books, but this was lovely. Elayna's words give a sense of shining optimism despite whatever struggles she has faced in her life. Loved the doodles scattered throughout too. Looking forward to what she puts out next. ...more

I loved following Elayna’s verse and illustrations throughout this book. Every page is a testament to how powerful hope and faith in one’s self can be if you have the patience and will to build them.

These poems go into the dark places yet still overflow with hope. A great read for anyone who needs a boost of serotonin, this collection pairs its deeply genuine heart with adorable drawings.
