Title: Love and Misadventure
Author: Lang Leav
Poetry: the least type of literature that I thought I’d be interested in (though I’ve written some of my own before). But because of this book, I realized how inclined I really was: A poem, I thought, can sweep me off my feet.
As I was reading it, I smiled in reverie and felt some goosebumps too, all over my body. It was deja vu. I suddenly felt all the things I’ve felt about love before –excitement, fear, intimidation, disappointments, sorrow, anger, happiness and the list is endless.
An hour: That’s the amount of time that I spent reading this little gem. Maybe because it was too short but then, its brevity was dream-like. My past encounter about love just suddenly passed by like a movie in my head – poem after poem.
It didn’t only touched my heart but so as my soul. That part of me I have long forgotten. That part I never wanted to revisit and has buried – that part when my heart was broken.
I also remembered all the poems I have written to all the boys I’ve loved and almost loved before. Funny how creative a brokenhearted girl can be and how romantic one can be when in love.
Here are some of my favorite poems:
