A Poet's Journey of Love, Loss and Other Experiences...
Songs With Our Eyes Closed - Tyler Kent White

I picked up Songs With Our Eyes Closed on a good feeling and it was a wise choice I have read this well-written collection of poems from Tyler Kent White. As his debut, all of his poems are common themes many modern poets faced today - depression, life, loss, love and resilience. There are some poems I felt connected that I became emotional towards it, and while others I felt are good but not much better. Still, I did enjoy reading them and even though there's nothing exceptional in most of the words we say today, its still a good read. Written poems about life is almost every single poet of what they experience in writing. In brilliance or whether in its common ground that we can identify, Songs With Our Eyes Closed is a good debut read worth picking up.

A Poetry Kind of Day

It has been a long time since I have been able to write poetry. It is an art form I don't always understand. I like to read it, but it is usually hit and miss whether I like it or not. So I've been going through stuff, so I wrote some poems recently. I'm sharing them with you.

Agonizing, Torment, Panic

All this because the Internet went out

Bored, Lonely, Sad

All this because the Internet went out

What to do, What to do?

Why are we stuck in an age

where Wi-Fi breathes us life

defines us, controls us?

The minute it goes

we freeze and

forget how to live.

 

design, desk, display

 

---

 

too much

suffocating, surrounding,

desire owning, having

overwhelming, intoxicating

 

unable to toss it away

too many leftovers of a past

unwanted memories of a life

 

struggling

let it go, go, go

get away

 

usefulness

dried up, gone

not needed

 

trash it, give it, clean it up

 

not only physical,

in the mind

as well

 

memories with people

not things

 

go ahead

take pictures

take videos

 

try

device down

once in a while

 

enjoy moment

record everything

forget to

really live it

 

pictures and video

are things too

stock photo, broken, glass, clean, mess, stock, broken-glass, clean-up, dust-pan, minimalism, excuse-our-mess

 

 ---

 

music, loud, love

headphones, my friend,

savior, comfort me

thank you

 

scary, too crazy

ouch, pain

people

hide, be quiet,

shh

 

better to, like to,

want to, hate to

ignore the world

 

confusing, conflicting

wants, desires

 

Woman with headphones listening music

Ivy in Bloom (A Picture Book) by Vanita Oelschlager & Kristin Blackwood (Artwork)
Ivy in Bloom: The Poetry of Spring from Great Poets and Writers from the Past - Vanita Oelschlager,Kristin Blackwood

I've got a tiny review for you today. It is for this adorable picture book!

Well, that was just cute. I enjoyed the little poem and the artwork that went along with the story. I feel like it would be a stunning book for anyone to own in person and think the bright colors would entice younger minds who are not quite at reading level.

Depression & Other Magic Tricks by Sabrina Benaim
Depression & Other Magic Tricks - Sabrina Benaim

I read this book in one sitting, even when I hadn't planned on reading much at all. I was just going to read a poem or two to see how I felt about the book. I was sucked right in. The poems are touching, heartbreaking, and hard to read at times, because I relate to them so much. The poem about explaining depression to your mother really resonated with me.

The writing style is different if you do not read a lot of poetry. I could feel the emotion and pain behind the words, even for the poems I could not personally understand.

Beautifully written.

*Got from Netgally in return for a review*
