Poetry is always special because there’s no limitation to the words written. It’s hard sometimes to really describe to people what you’re feeling at the moment and with poetry, the words flow easier. It’s easier to hold a conversation through poetry when it comes to speaking, at least for me. In this collection, Virginia Martin, shares her fears, her desires and her creativity within each poem. You really feel the intensity of pain when she’s been wronged, but you also feel that joy when she has felt that love. Some poems make you self-reflect like the poems, What is poetry?, What makes you come alive? and Silent Plea. The collection is very insightful and moving to the reader and can have you digging deep for the emotions being read. My additional favorites are: I can’t close my eyes, The sweetest man, In your eyes, Keep in the light, I want someone to find me, My inspiration, I know why I love, Your life and last, but not least, Love without borders.
