Poetry is the transfer of feelings and emotions onto the blank page. Great poetry shakes the heart and wakes the soul. Dare to read this collection; give yourself the opportunity to have your brain picked, heart squeezed, and soul poked. All poems are open to interpretation.

I cannot believe this kind of poetry still gets published nowadays. It was bad, in the way poems by a 10-year-olds are bad, but at least they are 10 years old! These poems actually had a rhyme, the kind that rhymes 'side' with 'inside.' There is absolutely no other beginning than 'I,' 'you' or 'she'. They were bland, pointless.

Here is what I mean:

I no longer want to be your friend
I’m done with this game of pretend
my heart can’t take this anymore
I want us to be so much more

A poetry book from a man's perspective and his feelings. Very beautiful and good rhyme scheme. Of course, there were some poems that I did not like and some had words that could have been avoided at all. But the majority of the poems were good.

ARC provided by the publisher via Netgalley.

Poetry by its nature is subjective and evocative. This is also its power. This short book had me wondering if the poems were written by one person.

A mixed bag, but thankfully there's more depth after the first section of the book.
