I prefer poems not to be over-focused on rhyming because it often results in the writer using a word that doesn’t really fit or the flow of the poem is strained to capture a word that rhymes. I felt that happened in various poems in this book where the flow of the poem was neglected in order to fit a rhyming word. Rather than letting the poems flood my mind I found myself distracted by thinking of alternative words or phrasing. I kept thinking, it would have been useful for Tina to have debated certain word selection or content, with an editor. Maybe this beauty is wasted on me.
As in all anthologies, there are those pieces that resonate more than others and that is true in this book. The poems that stand out for me are; ‘What I Am’, ‘My God’, ‘I Am Guilty’, and the pain of unrequited love in her poem ‘My Falling’ is palpable. The start of the ‘Self Harm’ poem is harrowing but ends with hope and clarity. My favourite is ‘A Suggestion’ but alas I replaced a word on the final line, in my mind, to give me a sense of temptation and flirtatious expectation for the future. It also fits better with a sense of grey shading, which is more consistent within the poem.
Tina Cox has been authentic and sincere in her poems and I certainly feel they convey her TRUTH. I would like to thank Tina for providing me with a free copy of her book in return for an honest review.
This book of poems was so heartfelt and touches the heart. You can feel the heartfelt meaning and message on each and every page. I loved this book of poems from start to finish. Truly magical!
In this book this is the central question, what is my truth? And it is explored through a collection of poetry that is straight forward, challenging, innocent, naive (in a good way) and at times brutally honest.
This book will not tell you your truth; however, by letting us into her world Tina provides us with an opportunity to challenge and expand our truth.
