A collection of 50 ramblings, or rather ramblings in the form of beautiful verse, this collection is at once soothing as well as thought-provoking. It is a walk through the journey of life, human emotions, blemishes, and one’s thinking through words that resonate and reach out.

What I liked about the book:

  • Everything is described in an eloquent and precise manner.  The readers would be able to taste several flavors and emotions through the verse and the words are sure to be found relatable by most.
  • It leaves a deep imprint on the reader’s mind because though short, the narrative is raw and unapologetic. It is not just a thought-provoking read but also one that is filled with some unsaid emotions.
  • Each poem opens up with a musing and ends with a hook for us to think over. These hooks make us think over our lives, our actions, our reactions, our perceptions. They also prod us further to delve deeper and understand the reality behind the surface.
  • This is a very short read that can easily be completed in one go, in a couple of hours. It is definitely a good read for lovers of the poetry genre and even beginners.

What I did not like about the book:

  • The poems might have read better if they had been grouped under various categories and reordered accordingly. That might have made the book even more appealing, both in terms of reading as well as presentation. Also, some poems felt very monotonous without a clear focus.

Quotable quotes:

  • We find ourselves rerouting, despite reaching the desired destination.
  • Dusk is always the darkest,
    But the night is where the moon shines.
    Let us part ways, for now,
    my words too do not stay as mine
  • Fickle desire –
    Strangles sleep, Deprives dream,
    Adds to routine, Snatches the joy,
    Burdens the heart, Makes a decoy,
    Tears apart, Longs attachment, Another desire starts
  • No sound yet we spoke,
    like two friends from age of young.
    Barely knew what she was feeling,
    yet it felt like we knew our song
  • Greater parts of the day,
    Goes in repairing the
    Damages incurred
