OVERVIEW: Are you suffering? | SKAVANSIEURAS

Every second week of the month we read a collection of poetry. I have a lot of them and there will definitely be more on my blog in the future.

I’m afraid I’ll get into a certain niche in poetry because I love reading different genres and I need to change it, otherwise I’ll be insensitive. There will be many more in November and January, but not too much to flood you.

We hope.

“Did you suffer?” is a collection of poems centered on the theme of suffering of sadness, anger, loss, and betrayal. It’s personal and reflective, and it seems like I’m reading a blog.

It is a pleasure to read Yoseiva’s poetry. I liked the personification and the way the poet chooses to describe things. Unlike many poems that focus on images, the poet carefully chooses words that emphasize feelings. I have a few favorite lines, but especially the opening line below, even after weeks of reading my jaw drops.

I like the names. For me, it was the best part of this collection. I also enjoyed the way the writer uses text formatting to reinforce emotions and context, it’s always a pleasure to read such books.

However, I have minor issues with this book. There were a few poems that I didn’t understand because of the context (I don’t understand part of the jealousy of Paris Hilton ..?), So I couldn’t fully enjoy it. There were also minor spelling errors that went unnoticed, but this did not have a significant effect on reading.

Yoseyva is also an artist you can view and purchase here.
