"Indestructible & Other Poems" is the second poetry collection by Kristy Rulebreaker. It describes life multicolored as it is, sometimes bitter, sometimes sweet. It's about people, places, hate, love, justice, nature, etc. The most of all, it's about freedom and courage. It encourages you, no matter how hard the life is, to stay indestructible.
With dark, sparse language, feminist poet Joshua Ebert writes of her experiences with love, sex, and the expectations of society. She uses a humorous "fictional confessional poetry" style, dancing with the topic of truth vs. fiction. She is often very bleak. Manipulating the truth and illustrating it in vivid metaphor, Ms. Ebert writes of a difficult relationship as the Berlin Wall.
This collection, by now seasoned veteran in independent poetry Jennifer Johnson, is a beautifully, tastefully, artistically, crafted story of dealing with sadness and pain and rising out of it stronger and wiser. The pieces within are intimate, vulnerable, and brave (which has become a staple for this emotional poet) and paint an emotional mental picture for the reader in a sobering way.
Do you ever just stop and either space out on your own thoughts or look at strangers musing over what they're thinking? The first part of this book is just like stepping into Jennifer Johnson's random thoughts and getting to just explore someone else's mind. It's fascinating!
This author has been described as a cross between Victor Meldrew and Karl Pilckington put into verse. His book however is not for the faint hearted, it's often hilarious but also often not, some of the subject matter can be disturbing as well as revealing. The author lifts the lid on many of life’s darker moments and taboo’s and brings them to the fore in his own no hold barred way.
"The Poems Choose Me" is the collection of 100 short poems written in 2014. As the title says, they really choose me, so I never know about what I will write the next. I hope to encourage people with my words. I like to write about freedom, and against injustice. Sometimes, I even write the love poems. As English is not my native language, without my editor Fred Robel I couldn't publish it. He patiently corrected my grammar mistakes.
This first and only book release thus far in my writing career encapsulates my favourite literary genre, poetry, and the tales that every piece can tell on its own. A modest collection of compositions, that cover everything from 9-11 to Emotions Anonymous International. This literary creation expresses my fine talent, as only I can describe and depict each person, place, or thing. My initial inspiration in my writing journey, was the tragic day of Tuesday, September 11th, 2001 in New York City, and the horrific events that took place in the downtown core and very heart of the "Big Apple".
