I received an ARC for this book.
“I don’t think you think of me
The way I think of you
For you do so only sporadically
While I have you in me
What a BEAUTIFUL poem. this book gave me so many goosebumps and made a few almost-tears threaten to spill down my cheeks. The short and very concise wording of this collection makes me so happy that not a lot of unnecessary stuff was taken out of the book, and only the very heart warming (and breaking) bits were kept! It talks about how love can change us, while in a relationship and its aftermath. The way apologies threaten to spill out of lovers lips but are stopped by a force of pride with a mix of hurt and anger.
It involved a poem named Northern Star that is probably one of my favourites ever! The idea of looking up to the same sky as a lover and wishing that the pull of the universe could just lead them back to you.
Another notion in this collection of poetry, albeit a very sad one is the feeling overwhelment. The feeling of having TOO MUCH of a thought for someone, and learning to slowly take small bites.
The last bit I’ll talk about it the poem named “Mystery Solved”
“I think you loved me
And I loved you
But we never really did
At the same time.”
This brought me to tears, I love the simplicity of the words, and the way they hit so close to home. Star-crossed to a whole new level.
This piece is so well crafted, concise and brings someone to reality really fast.
