    I'm frustrated with this one because most of the poems are a miss and I just couldn't connect to it It's like a rundown of lines and random themes are thrown in uite messy in my opinion but I'm willing to give the author's other poetry books a chance

    I meant to call to tell you that we found your elbow in the bottom of the swimming pool but I wasn't sure if you would want it back

    looking through old photo albumsand envying ouryounger selves which is not a comfortable feeling once in a lecture a professor named the exactsensation exaltation of the pastthe tendency toview the past as ideal and feel the intense desire to return to it even last month seems perfect and today hopeless already This hit home too hard I loved it I kept rereading some lines for days actuallyBut reading it was like being stabbed in the gut—uick and painful not that I have been stabbed before

    I think I'm too old to this kind of stuff Or maybe it isn't good after all I didn't enjoy any single one of the poems

    I discovered Fortesa Latifi's poetry on Instagram of all places and immediately fell in love with it Latifi's writing is relatable detailed and profound These poems are about life as a young adult learning how to navigate depression and love I read this book in one sitting and keep going back through and finding new favorites

    He is the water and depending on the day you can either breathe or you can'tI really enjoyed this collection and it was even exciting because I think I recognised some of the poems or at least certain lines from years ago when I used to see a lot of poetry floating around on tumblr That only added to the nostalgia for me and nostalgia is definitely a theme in this poem It's about being a teenager being reckless drinking too much and living too wildly parties and nights out and hangovers and mistakes It's about the way we look back and see things layered in gold remember our lives as glitzy than they were and shake our heads at ourselves for never recognising the good times when they were happeningThere were really powerful images throughout and again this was a collection where I found something that resonated with me in almost all of the poems If I could compare it to anything I'd say a modern Great Gatsby the aesthetic of that movie of everything being polished and beautiful with grit lurking just underneath the surface It reads almost like a story which I loved The speaker was her own character to me and I'd love to read about her In terms of issues I had a problem with the formatting of the ebook as I think some of the poems got scrambled up a bit there would be some poems with a page all to themselves and then others where there was a poem and a half per page or a title and the first line of a new poem at the bottom of another poem and it was all a bit of a sprawling mess I don't believe it was intentional if it was my bad but it interrupted the flow a bit for meOverall liked this collection a lot and would definitely recommend

    We make dinner and are stupidly proud when it reuires than three ingredientsAt first I thought I wouldn't click with this book but the second half was intense and beautiful I relate with her words on many different levels There's a mixture between the daily and tangible and the abstract and universal Definitely worth reading

  9. kristen kristen says:

    I didn't understand most of the poems it's almost like they're nonsense and were just written for sake of writing a poem At the end of every poem I think is this it? where's the story? I wish they were just written in essay form— it would've been better
