Title: Broken Wishbones and Empty Spaces
Publisher + date: January 22nd 2017 by CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform
into the book of love
stumbling through the pages
filling up the paragraphs
creating new chapters
right till the very last page
where we fell
out of the book
breaking into pieces
as we fell apart.”
This book is not for healing,
it is a shelter for your breaking
you will leave
but you’ll leave whole.
This prolific collection of poems; “Broken Wishbones & Empty Spaces” explains what it means to be broken, how it feels to be broken, and how it feels to thirst for love while being broken. It is a book that understands and justifies the melancholy in love. Yet amidst this hurt, it still acknowledges love as a good thing, if only we could find it, give it, and take it the right way.
“Broken Wishbones & Empty Spaces” heals a reader simply by acknowledgment. It skillfully teaches how to gracefully bear love’s forlorn.
Pyrokardia’s second collection of poetry couldn’t have been written in a better way and it is a perfect comrade and companion to his first collection titled “A Beautiful Mess”.
What I think of it
I heard so many good things about this book, so many people promoting it on social media so when I saw it on amazon kindle in sale I immediately bought it and started to read.. and I was immediately disappointed.
This book seems like it was written by a 12 year old having her first broken heart and is feeling like the whole world is against her.. This is probably a very unpopular opinion but I really can’t wrap my head around the fact that this book gets so many high ratings..
I know this was personal feelings and thoughts but this isn’t poetry, this doesn’t deserve to be next to great poetry books.. Unfortunately we can’t all be poets nor can we all be writers.
To be completely honest I did finish the book as I was hoping it would get better at some point but it didn’t.. So I cancelled my order and asked my money back.
