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.
Once again Mr. Faudet captured me with his beautiful words and made me feel ALL the feels. He has a wonderful way of weaving words that make you smile, or cry, or laugh, or just contemplate. Poetry is still a fairly new genre for me, but this book just makes me love it more, want to read it more. There was a bit more prose than in his last book, but I very much enjoyed it. I could picture the stories vividly and was easily caught up in them. It's hard to explain how this book made me feel, so you should just read it and feel the feels for yourself. You won't regret it.
what is stronger
than the human heart
which shatters over and over
and still lives
The first book of the year! And what a good pick it was. I enjoyed this volume more than her first one. I related to it more and found myself Snapchatting/saving a ton of pages. As usual, Ms. Kaur writes about difficult subjects and doesn't try to sugarcoat them with metaphors, which at first can be jarring, but at the same time, it's liberating to read.
