Confessions of a Wallflower Poetry Collection Review

Fragile Flower

This book was phenomenal. I’m so honored to have been able to get a copy of Juansen Dizon’s Confession of a Wallflower. It was beautiful, his mastery of prose was poignant and made my heart fall, rise, and leap.

Confessions of a Wallflower Poetry Collection Review

COAW Advertise

Trying to express your inner feelings, understanding your inner demons, and explaining to your loved ones what you’ve been dealing with, is something that you can’t simply put into words. Especially when you are constantly afraid what people might think of you or how they might treat you differently; once you try your best to share your struggle that is not just simply a “sadness” sensation. However, Juansen Dizon poetry collection has helped me understand myself and comforted me with his words. He was able to describe a feeling that I couldn’t express or explain. Confession of a Wallflower is definitely worth reading. Like, seriously go buy it now. I can’t wait to buy his new book that’s sometime in April, I believe.

Hearts and Empires by Cynthia Go (Book Review)

Bookcover-front

Prisoner

 

She built a wall, a fortress so high

That keeps her a prisoner of her own mind 

So on days she couldn’t glimpse the sun

Please don’t tell her to just get out and get about

Because darling, I assure you 

She doesn’t know how to escape

This lonely castle she built 

Out of her own tears, cut, and howl of anguish

Where hidden doors are called Happiness

And keys are called Prozac 

Or sometimes the usual,

‘It’s just in your mind.’

 

Hearts and Empires is Cynthia Go’s debut poetry collection which I very much enjoyed reading from start to end. It is wonderful and raw. The other pieces that I admired the most in this collection are I Believe There’s An Alternate Reality Where We Both Make It, Tell Me Something I Didn’t Know, Too Late, Constellation of Her Bones, Maybe It’s Okay and The Love Letters To The Dead.

This book tackles on subjects about love, loss, heartbreak, trauma, depression, and healing. Some of the pieces may be triggering because it has dark themes but overall Cynthia Go shines light on the topic of hope in the end. 

Her writing style is very simple, raw and magical. I just love this book, and I am looking forward to her next collection. It truly is a unique piece of literature.

Let me be the first to say that this book is a success.
