This is a book of love but it is a love that can be both idolatrous and self-loathing. If you get that, this author will strike you as very authentic, and, I suspect, he is. He is irreverent and irreverence can be powerfully stimulating and at times just irreverent. This collection is a bit of both.
While the edges are a bit sharp for my personal taste, there is a softer truth here as well. “Snow snuck into our lives/winter hid all the places/we found ourselves…Tongues were held/gradually/more than hands.” Words shaped by talent, for sure. Simple, provocative, and filled with a mixture of grit and longing we have all known.
There is a recurring theme to the author’s work and his self-reflection. “I’m always either ablaze with passion or frigid as a corpse. But once that fire is lit, I keep chasing it madly until it goes out completely. Until everything goes dark and cold again. It’s my nature. And it always will be.”
I’m not so sure. My sense, and it is entirely my own, is that this artist will find a more muted but even deeper insight as time goes on. He clearly has the tools to express it. I will be anxious to see what life brings his way. I certainly hope he continues to share his journey.
I do feel compelled to note my general displeasure in having to give works of artistry a singe 1-5 star rating. This book, I suspect, will have an abundance of both one and five star ratings, as this is an author who takes no prisoners. Take my rating in that context. It’s a quick read, and worth your time, but you may find you can’t put it down quick enough. It’s personal. What more can we ask of our authors?
I read this book as a member of the Kindle Unlimited program. I did not get an advance copy and had never heard of the author before reading this work.
If you have ever been in love, these poems will reawaken those feelings of passion and utmost appreciation for a current or past lover. If you have never been in love... read this book and surely you will fall. Will be recommending this book every chance I get. Thank you BB!
It's very powerful and raw, yet very fragile and sensual. Every poem is special, as it has its own rhythm, and with it its own feel. The poems are built in a way, that makes you imagine the poet confessing them to you, with the beats and breaths, and that makes them even more personal, considering the content. I read all the book in one sitting, and had to go back for more. A book packed with emotions, that you can't but journey through them.
