The Last Time I’ll Write About You by Dawn Lanuza
Publication Date: November 5, 2016 by Indie Sisiw
I have been waiting for Ate Dawn’s secret *thing* for so long and when I found out it’s a poetry book, I screamed internally.
Then she started posting teasers and I thought of Lang Leav.
And I love Lang Leav.
At first I didn’t want to pre-order the e-book on Amazon because I really wanted to read the book once the print copy is out. BUT it would take long, and I couldn’t wait so I finally clicked the pre-order button.
You are the dream
But I’ve had wake up calls
I kept on tapping my Kindle for the next page, the next poem, and I was at the Epilogue before I knew it.
While I cannot relate to all of the poems, I just stop once I do find pieces “written for me” – I stop to take a moment, so I can read the poem again and let my heart bleed.
Pieces I like:
- AND NOW I’M RUINED
- NORTHERN STAR
- THE FEAR
- BOTH FEET ON SHORE
- THE WORLD IS OUR SOUVENIR
And my favorite: EPILOGUE.
The Last Time I’ll Write About You is a collection of poems that tell a story so close to my heart. Parts of my story (as in my super real life story) are in there – and while reading the poems reminded me of the pain I went through, I did find what I was looking for. My favorite piece in this book showed me the words I was desperately searching for – words that would make the end real.
This is for those who gave love a chance and got hurt.
This is for those who gave love a chance and ended up broken.
This is for those gave love a chance-
-and tried again.
Finding a piece of yourself within the pages of a book is one of the most beautiful things you’ll ever feel. Because sometimes, the words we need bring us to meet the people we’ll love.
Final Rating: 5/5
