A brave expression of feeling through poetry that is both thought provoking and inspiring…
To convey deep personal thoughts and feelings through poetry and then release it into the world is an incredibly brave thing to do. That’s exactly what this collection is. It starts with a poignant and deep quote from Edgar Allen Poe about the subject of insanity which immediately sets the tone of embracing anything but the ordinary with pride. Throughout readers will be treated to meaningful and quite inspirational quotes from the likes of Charles Bukowski and Sylvia Plath.
From self harm, depression, anxiety, loneliness, love, individual suffering and pain to everything else that centres around our sanity, you’ll see it represented here without any reservations and with honesty – something the world needs to talk about more. The many poems and verses that make them up are full of emotion and can be related to.
‘Just Like a Drop of Water’ stood out and I found ‘A Long Wordless Day’ spoke to me along with ‘Those Enchanting Nights’ amongst many others.
For anyone who is a fan of immersive poetry and for those looking to take on a read that is different but also very honest, I recommend this book. It tells a story while also being inspiring.
