New poetry collection + lunch! Summer is wrapping up quick and I‘m back to work tomorrow with some meetings to set things up. Always a mix of dread and excitement. So far it just feels like a never-ending Sunday night!

“You told me I seemed haunted.
It was three a.m. and you could still smell
the storm clouds under my skin.
You can‘t quell depression by making
love.
But we tried.
But we tried,
oh, we did.”

bone - from One who says, “Don‘t cry. You‘ll like it after a while.” And Two who tells you thank you after the fact and can‘t look at your face. #bone #poetry

I mostly checked this out because I've never done a volume of poetry on audio. I've heard poems read, obviously, but an entire volume that way seemed like it would be either supremely powerful or a novelty. Unfortunately, I felt the latter with this one. I think poems are meant to be poured over and dissected, with this format you are forced to let each poem wash over you, one after the other... the effect is that it dulls their power.

From the poem "Things it can take twenty years and a bad liver to work out." I will come back to this collection over and over again. #bone #yrsadaleyward #readingblackout #blackhistorymonth #poetry

A stunning & captivating book of poetry. Beautiful prose, range & depth.

This little book of poetry was powerful, raw and beautiful. Daley-Ward does a wonderful job of writing a mix of poetry and story telling. From heartache to healing. With raw powerful emotion. She also touches on race, religion, family, and love.
I didn't connect with every single poem but I did mark several passages that spoke to me, more than I have in a long time. I am looking forward to reading more of her work.

I‘m not a poetry person. Don‘t often know how to read it or if I‘m reading it the right way! So to find a collection of poems that one can truly connect with, without the concern of “getting it” or not, is truly special. These poems are special and are meant to be read and re-read and used as daily mantras. Best of 2017 in my book!

2BR02B I like the art. Is it by the author? 2y
Lupita.Reads @2BR02B sadly it is not, but it reminded me of the poems so much which is the reason I decided to snap the photo :) 2y

A collection that doesn't hesitate to rip open old wounds in order to properly heal them. Ward's poetry is raw and reflective, but she has little patience for wallowing in the past. Instead, she urges us to be better than we have been, pushing us forward with the gentle reminder that "this will give you poetry."

Hosting a #giveaway for one of my favorite books of the year! Check out my IG page to enter: Lupita.Reads. Might I add this is a collection of poems that truly moved and touched this non-poetic person.

"Look for yourself because it never helps to hear from someone else."

I don't know what to say.
It was a painful reading experience??? I couldn't connect to the topics??? Both of these statements are true, but I doesn't cover the whole thing.
I don't know how to review poetry books. They are so personal.

This is a collection of heartbreaking poetry written by a person who has had a difficult life. By the time I finished the book I felt like Daley- Ward had told me the storey of her life. Overall, I would say that it is a beautiful read that broke my heart with each poem.

Don't often read poetry books. This was recommended on another book site and was 99p on kindle. It's an amazing book of poems about life and love (of yourself and others) .
'Seize that loveliness.
It has always been yours.'

'It's never too late to be wise.
See how your spirit has been fermenting.'

specificity Thanks for the recommendation! I bought it too! 3y
