5.0 out of 5 stars passionate and painful. She doesn't hold back for anyone 29 May 2015
By tarrynyouapart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Addonizio's poems are raw, passionate and painful. She doesn't hold back for anyone. She doesn't care about what makes you uncomfortable or what makes you look a little deeper than you wanted to within yourself. And there were times when I felt these ways, but I loved every single second of it.

What Is This Thing Called Love: Poems is divided into five sections, each hitting on a different type of love. Though not every poem resonates, the majority had an effect similar to feeling as though my skin was buzzing. I love the sexuality that drips from her words. She can make every day things, things as far from sex as possible, overfill with pure sensuality.

Addonizio is the first poet I've ever connected to enough to go out and buy her collections and so far, I have not a single regret and am looking forward to reading more.

Kim is awesome. Real life even when she makes it up. Real love, sexy, scary, hopeful, delusional.

I read it, gave it away, ordered another copy and gave that away, ordered another copy. Glad I opened it and read one of the startlingly clear poems immediately…if I had judged it by the cover I may not have bought it at all.

This book of poetry changed the way I think about poetry, and I often find excuses to give a copy away as a gift. It is a spectacular hit.
