Love in Between emits some very “Romeo and Juliet” vibes in its style. These speak on love in bloom, love unrequited, love ill-fated, and love captured in the past.
I like classical romantic poetry quite a lot. I think it lends itself naturally to beautiful ideas.
While maybe not as fully realized as they could be, a couple of the poems are quite pretty, especially “Sweet Summer of Jun” and “Beautiful Fascination”. There aren’t really any terrible ones, though some become repetitive. I love the flash-fiction stories at the end, though. Poignant and delicate, like rose petals drifting into the evening’s last sunbeam.
Thanks to the author for providing me a copy in exchange for an honest review.
- “At eventide I confess emotions, I forgot to spill the want of these hidden affections, the past I used to haunt.”
- “Hours of sunlight as I view, the beautiful waves, the glittering skies / pondering the truth, he knew, casted a spell in his heart with lies.”
- “Piece of fiction is this affection, fated had decided our destiny / hearts wrapped in lover’s potion, thy love’s the remedy.”
