Words tumble out, with no pause;
From the pen, my anelace,
That I hold so graciously,
(In awe of its majesty, its power)
In my hand.They form thoughts, hopes and musings;
Reflect my soul, my entire being,
And spread across the page,
Like scattered constellations
Across the sky.(Scattered Constellations is a YA Free Verse Poetry collection.)
For me 2018 is the year I try more poetry so when Ankita asked our New Bloggers group whether anyone would like read and review her upcoming collection I decided I could help out too.
I did really enjoy the collection because a good handful of them invoked a lot of emotions.
Many of the poems deal with someone struggling with relationships, accepting themselves, and a love they deserve.
Its an emotional read. The few poems I just shared are some great examples of this as they resonate dealing with abuse.
However I did have a lot of trouble following the book as a whole because I felt it needed a finale editing phase to have a more flowing path of the emotions explored.
The way the poems were organised meant we were going back and forth between positive and negative emotional responses from the poems and this caused a very disjointed experience for myself.
I think pairing all the similar poems together would’ve produced a stronger response of what they were aiming to make you feel.
The collection is currently part of the kindle unlimited so I definitely think its worth checking out if you have access to that!
