it was amazing

This collection of poetry by Christina Sng is meant to be read by candlelight in a dark, creepy room. While some poetry collections follow a theme or message, this collection captures the essence of the title perfectly,
"A Collection of Nightmares"
Any of these bite-sized terrors could find themselves slipping into your memory; making a return appearance while you sleep...a nugget of nightmare fuel.
Example:
"Mirror to the Other Side"
Through the mirror
I see him, translucent
In the forest,

Tiny form bent
Over a dying fawn,
Bringing it back to life.

"So what do you think of
Our Mirror to the Other Side?"
The saleslady asks.

I nod and smile, never
Taking my eyes off my boy.
"I'll take it."

Wow! See what I mean? I could think of these words for the rest of the day. And this book is full of insidious, little treasures just like that one.
I especially loved:
THEY DO NOT SLEEP
CRAWLSPACE
INSIDE
SUCCUBUS

If you haven’t yet experienced the allure of dark poetry such as this, let Christina Sng’s smartly spoken words work their magic on you. I promise, once you start collecting poetry like this, you'll never want to stop enjoying it.
