Pieces of Mel: Poetry Collection by Melina Turner

Pieces of Mel: Poetry Collection by Melina Turner
Blurb:

The darkness...The light...The happiness and sadness...Where would we be without such raw emotional being?

Open the pages of international award-winning poets "Pieces Of Mel" and step into many of the portrayals, opinions, hopes, and beliefs the author expresses so deeply. From raw emotion to the miniature poetic stories you will find the proof of the authors passion and soul.


Review:
If life was so perfect
Would we be us?
Would we be the same?
Or would we just adjust?
- If (Part 2) by Melina Turner

I am eager,
To know.
Of what,
I am not.
But,
Should be.
- Destiny by Melina Turner

Pieces of Mel is a collection of poems spanning various themes. I admire anyone that can put up their poems for the world to see. Unlike most novels, poems tend to be far more personal and show the writer's vulnerable side.

Through this collection of poems you can see the writer's journey through different phases of her life. It allows you a look at snippets of her life as she sees it - The questions burning in her mind, the moments that have shaped who she is, the things she has seen, the person she has become.

Its quite wonderful really to see her transformation through these poems as they progress throughout the book. I loved the paranormal undertones in some of the poems. Some of the poems were like a complete story in poem form. I just wish the book was a bit more fine-tuned and edited a bit better, it would have made the book a stellar read.

Some of my favorite poems were A Hero in Blue, A Villan in Red, Loving One in Vengeance, and Deathly-Roses Poetry Part 1.
