The Shades of Missing You is a stunning collection of poems, circling around heartbreak and the pain that separation from a loved one brings. Beautifully penned down, the poems showcase the emotions of longing and desire, perfectly balanced with the process of healing and coming to terms with the reality.

The poems are accompanied with beautiful photographs that go well with the theme, which together, candidly represent her journey of coming to terms with the fact that the person who left was not

Absolutely captivating from beginning to end. I have the best luck with poetry and reading it at exactly the right time. Huge, giant thank you to the poet who sent me a copy knowing it might be awhile before I could get to it. Something called me to this collection today, so I started reading it. It hit me real deep.
I can’t pick a favorite poem because they’re all favorites. Truly masterful. I’ll re-read and highlight later because I have to.

The ONLY thing that could have made the presentation

The Shades of Missing You is a delicate balance between unrequited love, passion, and loss. Vironika Tugaleva has an artful style of spilling blood all over the pages with the stroke of her pen. Some of the poems brought a smile to my face from my own memories. Other poems made me well up with emotion from the pain of loss, the lonely nights, and a heartache that never left. This book is a brave representation of the slow walk through healing and the emotions that come with every step.

The Shades of Missing You is a visually stunning collection, filled with beautiful full-page photographs to accompany the pieces alongside them. Vironika takes you on a very candid journey throughout this collection, a story of heartbreak fading into the background of one's life. Through direct imagery and language, these poems dive straight to the point, bring you right into their world, and keep you there for their duration. ...more

I have always been in awe of people who write words that resonate with thousands others, and this book is no less. It's personal yet universal. The poetry doesn't just hit where it hurts, it also tries to heal it. The poems tend to stay with you long after you have finished reading them. If you have ever nursed a broken heart or are currently nursing one, I recommend this book. ...more
