Summary of the Book:
This is how you draw a broken heart:
Dip your fingers in blood and don’t
Hesitate to botch the final project.
This is a book about love and the wounds that it can bring. It explores the exhilaration of first love, the damage of unrequited love, and the distress of abandonment. The poems are little memories that come alive, a journey between reality and fantasy, often mingling as one. Fragments of life depicted in words. This is a collection of poems both cruel and sweet. The poems depict the difference between how we perceive ourselves and how others perceive us. But most of all, this is a kaleidoscope of emotions that are multiplied and amplified as the reader looks into the window of a young woman’s heart.
My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I have read my fair share of poetry over the years. I even write some of my own. There were poems in this book that made my heard hurt and weep for those who the poems describe. Some brought tears to my eyes and I knew it was sad and dark poetry going in. That does not mean I disliked anything that was in the book. It was for me about connecting with my emotions and gave me something to think about. IT was worth my time to read it.
My Rating of the Book: 5 Stars
