Love, Spelled in Poetry

Here's to the plane you missed,
the tickets ripped away,
and the lands left unexplored.

Here's to the boxes left unopened,
the keys thrown away,
and the treasures left untouched.

Here's to the 2 AM thoughts,
the song of what ifs,
and the chances I missed.

A sweet collection of short poems, all about love and heartbreak. Best read a little at a time, as there is no overarching narrative - the poems are not about the same people or relationships.

Sebelum kenal bookstagram, gue ga pernah baca buku puisi. Terakhir baca ya pas di bangku sekolah 😅 Thanks to the community, I’ve found some good poetry books, and one of them is this one.

Love, Spelled in Poetry adalah tentang kisah perjalanan seorang gadis mengenal cinta, kecewa, pulih, dan kembali menemukan cinta. Kata-kata yang dipakai Helena berima dan enak dibaca tapi juga mewakili perasaan si gadis dengan sangat baik, gue sampe tersentuh.

We couldn’t hold on
to each other,
So we hold

Sweet poetry 😍😍
I really love the heart broken theme part 😍😍
I was open book

You were written
All over my chapters--
My never-ending summer
My happily ever afters

Reading back now,
I realize
You were never the prince,
You were twist,
The lesson I didn't see coming

I can relate to almost every of the poems written on this book. It makes me feel as if im not the only one whose fallen this far and its not always my fault. I enjoy being heartbroken and ready to let my story go the same day i finish reading this book. Extra credit for my neighbor who give me the chance to borrow this loveee 💕

I really enjoy reading this book. This is a small book filled with short poetries. Not too raw, because it's wrapped with brilliant analogy (that actually make more senses than write it in raw conditions) but has deep meaning and understanding of love itself. Reading this book is like riding a journey. When you start falling in love to a boy, hopping to a relationship, getting heart broken. All above just wrapped in one small beautiful book.

Buku ini sempat terlihat waktu ke toko buku, dicetak hardcover yg memang tren sekarang, tapi sayangnya gak dilengkapi dengan ilustrasi yang tren sekarang. Itulah kenapa buku ini menjadi kurang menarik secara visual.

Puisinya gimana?
Nah ini yang penting. Di luar ada dan tidaknya ilustrasi, buku puisi yang paling penting itu isi puisinya. Saya harus bilang kurang bisa menikmati puisi-puisi di dalam buku ini. Mungkin karena pemilihan kata-katanya lebih kayak curhat.

"His "I love you"
is the way
he looks at her
when he thinks
she's not looking."

Reading this book is like a journey of love. The happiness of falling in love, the anger when things go wrong, the sadness when broken up and then the courage to discover love once again. Her writing style is simple yet its so magical. It's not a corny kind of love but it's a genuine love.

beautifully written. This book explain that love involve the feeling of fun, excitement, broken, doubted, wonder, what-if thoughts, and trust. The way back to every road we took. This is definitely how love feels like, how love truly is inscribed in poetry.
