Was craving some R.H. Sin in my life so decided to give this one a re-read.
Liked it slightly more then the first time but my opinions are still the same.

I was sent this by Andrews McMeel Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
As most of you know already, I am a HUGE R.H. Sin fan and I love his work. Though I do have to say this is not my favourite by him. I have similar ...more

This is r.h. Sin’s newest collection, and though it was slightly better than Planting Gardens in Graves, it still felt incredibly underwhelming. Once again, my biggest complaint is the repetitiveness of the subject matter. I feel like the more collections I read, the less engaged with the text I become. And I absolutely hate to feel that way because I truly belie ...more
Precise, small prose carries the weight of massive emotions.
A romantic tribute to the brave woman who overcomes hardships caused by a lover, caused by society, caused by her doubts.
I feel like this might resonate more strongly with others than it did with me, though I did enjoy these, and the design of the book is stylish as well. I admire its intention - She Felt Like Feeling Nothing succeeds at being uplifting and in parts evocative of beautiful renewal and fresh beginnings.
The themes get a bi ...more

"save yourself for yourself
only you deserve you"
I was broken hearted and was harassed when I started to read this. I can somehow relate to the emotion that this book wants to convey. I smiled and cried ugly tears while reading the book but I enjoyed it. I felt the pain and want to stop it but I don't know how. Some entry made me overwhelmed by my emotion.

She felt like feeling nothing
Perhaps that was why she set out
To write poems about being strong
and acknowledging that you are deserving of love.
Some of her poems were impactful,
brimming with raw emotions
and thoughts that reverberate
through poignant imageries and genuine words.
Yet some, sadly I must say,
fall short of the high standards
she set forth for herself
from the very beginning.
Some poems have great premises,
but premises do they all remain,
a sentence, broken up into a few short lines
lacking c ...more
This collection falls into the same category as works from Rupi Kaur and Zebian Najwa (and a plethora of others, usually characterized by their works being easy enough to be quoted on Instagram or Tumblr).
With the age of the novel, the downfall of poetry, and the rise of both mass media as spoken poetry, the contemporary mode is towards easy-to-swallow poetry. There's not much to most of these works: not in terms of style, not in terms of rhetorical devices. They rely solely on delivering a mes ...more
