Hello and welcome back to Nocturnal Book Club blog! 🙂
Today I would like to share with you my thoughts on a poetry book The Chaos Of Longing by K. Y. Robinson. I got this book for free on NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
As the trigger warning on the beginning of the book says, the book contains descriptions of sexual trauma, suicidal ideation, racism and sexism. The book was sometimes very hard to read, there were poems that I could not connect or relate with and some of them so nicely written that they made my heart beat a bit faster!
Here are some of my favourite poems or quotes from this book:
“It will not be love at first sight when you look at me. Your eyes and heart must adjust to me. Darkness lives here.”
“I would eat all the stars just for you to see light in my eyes.”
“If you told me to come to you right now I would drop everything, watch it shatter like glass, and crawl on the broken pieces to show you how much love hurts.”
“Sometimes I wonder if I’m too much rainfall and not enought sun.”
“They never tell you that the heat of waiting will burn you if you linger too long.”
“Darling, you must be tired of feeling your way out of the dark long after they’ve left. It’s time to find the light.”
“You are a natural phenomenon – not a natural disaster.”
