DARKNESS COMES A CALLIN WONDERFUL POETRY GRAPHIC, HUMOROUS, ANGRY .A WAY TO FIGHT BACK AT DEPRESSION BY WRITING POETRY AND TELLING THE DEMON DOGS OF HELL TO GO AWAY.I THOROUGHLY UNDERSTAND MS KISERS FEELINGS OF POETRY AND READ HER POETRY LAST NIGHT, DURING MY EPISODE OF EMPTINESS MY SOUL WAS GONE AND IT HELPED ME TO REMEMBER OTHERS SUFFER THIS HORRENDOUS MONSTER EITHER TIME TO TIME, ALL THE TIME, OR RARELY, IF EVER I AM NOT ALONE.Disclosure I got this book for free from First Reads giveaway.
When I read the title I though nothing of it Darkness Plays Favorites I found that when I started reading the poems they were very dark but some with humor despite that I did enjoy reading these poems I think everyone can relate to at least one of these The writter is very direct and straight forward about her words.
I really enjoyed this little collection of poems A few of my favorite poems were Darkness Plays Favorites , Dress Up , We Didn t Have the Heart , The Therapist and Noise Pollution I especially like how Casey Kiser is able to write about common emotions in insightful new ways that make you stop and think.
A couple spelling errors but overall, a favorite because I could relate so thoroughly.
If you ve never gotten over your fear of the dark, then don t read this book Casey deals with darkness, regularly She lives it, remembers it, fights it and writes about it and wins, because, in her words I will accidentally spill nothing but the truth And, that s the beauty of her work She s a no holds barred writer You may not like what you see on paper, but you can t deny the truth of her words, the depth of her emotions What you read is Casey in a battle with herself however, don t let your g [...]
It s after reading a couple Poems that I thought Ah, that s where Darkness from the title comes from.Although some are very dark, the humour used in these poems makes it lighter and easier to read.I have enjoyed reading this book and you d be able to relate to one or of these poems, that s for sure.
I like the sense of pale humor present in a number of these dark, realistically gloomy poems The subject matter is black, but the tone of voice constantly reminds you that the poet lives with this darkness on a daily basis, and keeps you firmly anchored in that grim fact I received this collection of poems as the result of a giveaway, and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Nice collection of poetry I especially enjoyed Ragdoll Holiday and the the poem, Darkness Plays Favorites.
3 stars because, We Didn t Have the Heart is a gem.
I liked the poems in this book.
Daring and insightful poems on how depression can really take over your life.
A decent little selection of poetry As usual when I read I get done to quickly.
