I was sent this book by the author as an advanced copy for reviewing purposes, but all opinions are my own.

This short poetry book features poems about the author's experience being polyamorous.

Like with all personal poems, it's not easy to talk about them if you don't share the same life experiences or identity, but even without being able to relate to them on a personal level, and even as someone who doesn't read much poetry lately (and generally doesn't have much experience reading poetry

Pomegranate Seeds is the second poetry collection I’ve read by Melissa Jennings and I really liked it. The writing is beautiful and I loved the way Melissa expressed their feelings. I could relate to having a ‘thing’

So Melissa sent me an arc of their new poem collection some time ago but it took me long time to figure out, what I’m gonna say about it.
Their poems are very different from the ones that I usually read but beautiful nonetheless 💕

It’s a collection of six poems which I really enjoy

Another awesome release from Melissa Jennings! Pomegranate Seeds is a short but sweet micro-chapbook about the poet's experience as a polyamorous person, and the impact that's had on their relationships.

This microchap contains six poems about unrequited love. Although the author describes the book as exploring polyamory, I wouldn’t have realised without being explicitly told. In general, the poems seem to be dedicated to a specific person. Each title is dual, portraying a contrast within itself. I liked this aspect of this collection, as the titles give us multiple lenses to read the poems through.

you said things always taste better if they are fresh."
