This whispered to my heart.

Aah god this book was heart-wrenchingly good. There right there somewhere in the center I could feel whispers in my chest and dear heavens is Rogue talented. Read it, I know you'll agree.

J.R. Rogue is always a good idea!

If it has the words:

1. JR
2. Poetry
3. Rogue ...

mentioned anywhere, it's a sheer DELIGHT. A treat. A heart-wrenching experience.
Poems for the Moon is definitely one of her best works. She's like a fine wine. Better and better every single time.

Although this is short it's raw in a way that other poetry books are afraid of being. All of Rogue's work is like that. Honest, raw, unapologetic.

I liked it

Great poems,; i just didn't relate. Short book but really great poems. The feeling is there but not for me.

I follow J.R. Rogue on social media and had often seen her social media posts offering custom poetry, followed soon after by posts by her fans and customers gushing over how well Jen was able to capture their feelings, a moment in time, a memory, or special meaning so well in a custom poem that they had ordered without having ever met them face to face, through exchanging merely a few emails. I don't envy the writer who can take on someone's pain, sadness, joy, or love and make it their own, who ...more

Great poems from a young author

One of the best to heart poetry that I have read in recent times. I could relate to almost all of them.

Slow start, but worth it

I've had this sitting with 25% done for several months now, and every few weeks I would read a poem or two, but for the life of me, I could not get into it. However today, I continued reading and I'm so glad I did. While slow to start, I simply devoured the other 75%, and I think Rogue has written one of my favourite poems I've ever read, entitled "Voyeurs". I have highlighted many passages in this book and the final lines of the final poem (entitled "Mermaid Hearts")

There were some genuinely good poems in here. It started with one hell of a punchy poem. Much of it was about themes of heartbreak and love. There's definitely something in here that anyone who has ever been hurt by love or been in a relationship will be able to closely relate to.

The thing that really got to me when reading this collection was how short it was, however, and just how much repetition was in it regardless.

Not at all moon related -100/10.

Seriously though, it was okay I guess. It seems evident it was meant to be enjoyed by people who are already fans of hers. Too discordant, though I realize the poems are meant to be seperate and not part of an overall narrative. It just felt kinda hollow to me. Pretty words though I guess.

This was a wonderful collection of poems. With plenty of sweet, beautiful words, I was inspired from reading Rogue's Letters To The Moon. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes poetry, especially those with a taste for the contemplative and the romantic types.

This was a very short read but I read very slowly, taking in every word. "Waiting" was the one that I read over and over again. I absolutely loved this book.

Every time I read a poem from Jen she pulls out all the emotions. This collection does it again and it's beautiful.

I felt like these poems were good, just not up to Rogues typical awesomeness.
