Reviewing poetry is often hard because you want to give your opinion so others can decide whether they wish to pick it up but the thing with poetry is that how we read and interpret it may be very different from someone else. Poetry is what I call writing on feeling. Everyone has their own taste when it comes to reading or even listening to poetry (like music). I like poems that are raw, to the point, and filled with feeling. I want to feel the moment like the author. If a poetry writer can bring me there and I'm feeling that anger, that pain, that happiness, that passion, then I'm sold. I rather liked this short poetry book by Susan Borgeson. The author who has mild schizophrenia and severe bi-polar disorder wrote her feelings as they were after enduring a love lost (but perhaps for the better). I liked the poems...they felt real, they weren't fluffy, they just were real. I could sense the feeling that she was experiencing at the moment of righting that particular poem. I would recommend anyone who's experienced love and the loss of love to pick this one up and read it. It was a VERY quick read, a poetry reading that doesn't require a genius to decipher the meaning, and a read that will stick in your mind later on.
