    This poetry collection, which I was SO excited for, was way over-hyped. I found it to have the following things, and more, that really irked me to the point of no return: preach-y to women (when the author is a man), likes to romanticize depression and the aftermath of abusive relationships, compares a woman's sex to a winter jacket, continously says he's a better man than any other man the women he's speaking to has been with, and is filled to the brim with over-used themes and contantly eye-ro This poetry collection, which I was SO excited for, was way over-hyped.

OH and out of the 150+ poems in here? I only liked 5 or 6 of them. OUT OF OVER 150 poems. Man. I definitely don't think I'll be reading any more of this author's work, which makes me upset because I was looking forward to enjoying his work. Alas, no cigar. Hopefully I'll be diving into some better poetry soon. Alright, that's enough griping of this book. I think I'm just going to leave this review at that.

    Isn't this cover absolutely beautiful? Well, I thought so. So I ordered this book knowing absolutely nothing about it or the author. And while waiting for it to arrive, I painted a little fan art with watercolors: Now to the actual book. It's pretty small, and most poems are tiny, consisting of just a couple of lines. It's very easy to read in one sitting in under an hour. The general themes are unrequited love, heartbreak, search and hope for a new romantic relationship. diving into love emerging Isn't this cover absolutely beautiful? Well, I thought so.

It's pretty small, and most poems are tiny, consisting of just a couple of lines. It's very easy to read in one sitting in under an hour. The general themes are unrequited love, heartbreak, search and hope for a new romantic relationship. diving into love emerging within each other Some of the poems were poignant, beautiful, moving because of their aching honesty and truth. But not many were like this. The others were either stuffily preachy or bitter and angry. Most, I'd say, fell into these two categories. And that's where I failed to see beauty or truth. And that's why I wouldn't generally recommend this poetry collection, nor do I plan to read this author again. To illustrate my point. hell on earth will always be trying to maintain a relationship with someone who is too weak to remain loyal to the idea of a forever with you That's the entire poem by the way. Which takes up a whole page of the book. And then another one: their inability to remain faithful to your loyalty is a reflection of their own emotional handicap (...) start preserving your energy for someone who is strong enough to reciprocate the love within your heart Okay. So you fell in love with someone. They didn't reciprocate. They don't want a forever with you. They don't even want a finite time with you. That sucks. That hurts. I totally get it. I've been there. BUT! That doesn't mean that person is emotionally handicapped, or weak, or even generally disloyal. They just aren't interested in being loyal to you. DEAL WITH IT! I was actually exasperated to read this. So if someone loves you back, that automatically makes them strong, and if they don't, that automatically makes them emotionally handicapped? WTF! Get over yourself! The world does not exist for the sole purpose of adoring you! they only treat you how they feel about themselves That's another poem in its entirety. And no, people don't treat you how they feel about themselves. They treat you how they feel about you. If someone had the misfortune of becoming the object of your love, they are obligated to love you back or they are an asshole? That's emotional blackmail! And there is a loooooot of that in this poetry collection. instead of teaching women how to keep a man let's encourage them to be the greatest thing to and for themselves a woman's value is not validated by her ability to attract and or keep a man Another poem in its entirety. First off, it doesn't express or strike up any emotion (in me). It's not beautifully written either. How is this even a poem? Secondly, it's the most obvious and banal thing to say. It's something I've heard and read a thousand times before. Like, are there actual people who would argue with this statement anymore? Also, who goes around teaching women how to keep a man? Does that actually happen to people? There are a lot of poems like this one in the book. So with all the judgmental bitterness and bitchiness and preachiness I didn't love the contents of Whiskey Words & a Shovel II as much as I instantly loved the cover art. Pity. It would have been so easy to win me over.

I have not reached halfway through this book when I'm making this review. Call me judgemental, but I believe we can easily create the same exact writing for each poems in this book faster than I could say, "What?????" I'm sorry but the contents are just not for me as there's nothing new about them. And it is indeed so true what Emily May said that hitting enter per words does not make it a poem. You know what the real poem is? Once, dusty debris of a forsaken star hushed at the beaming Moon, "Don't ever fall for the glorious Sun, with her blinding storm heat Lustrous with a touch of blue luminescent fluorace Illuminating the unabridged earth Radiating perpetuity never ending forevermore never more!" "But isn't the complexion of the Moon is to descend and succumb to the ardor of amorous Sun?" For the meek, plebeian, melancholy Moon The Sun was her first savor of mad craving Her only spring of searing gleam Velvet compliments of, "You look breathtaking wearing my gown of dazzling flare." Subtle murmurs of, "Accompany me through the dark vast of whirling cosmos." Sweet mumbles of, "Such a pretty figure, burning white from clandestine of the night." Satiny kisses playing around on the edges of transparent halo Numinous touch cascading along the stream of alabaster backside Alas, it always ends with the ardent Sun set off, swallowed by the matters. No matter how many; the Moon recites boundless ballads and hundreds heavy-heart poetry for the Sun the Moon serenades limitless celestial bodies and scalding fallen stars the Moon flirts with alluring secondary planets and vibrant playful sphere Still, the Sun, is the center, the pivot, the concentration of the whole universe— for the Moon. The pale Moon, ever so confident Entrust her luminosity of a foreign feeling The fiendish Sun, ever so patronizing Amuse herself with the fast falling of the moon Collapse rapidly, Perishing every single day, just to glow the next waning night, for the smoldering Sun. — The Moon, still falling and rising helplessly for the radiant Sun I don't even know who is the creator of the poetry above is as I found it on Official Account page that weekly holds Poems Night every saturday night.

    Perhaps R.H Sin does boast a fearless and vulnerable voice, but this remains one of the most appalingly tasteless volumes I've ever read. What we have here is a bombardment of obsessive love letters and cringe-worthy rants , most no more than a sentence or two of free verse. Page after page demands the reader to "find a man who loves you with all the love you deserve." A poem simply titled "Sent text" reads: "Be consistent, or become non existent." R.H.

Sin deserves better than you, and won't rest until he finds "A love rich and organic, homegrown from seeds in my own soul; I want love that's straight like my favorite liquor." There are bits and pieces of feminist insight here, albeit always offered through a cynical male perspective. In actuality, this book does a lot to push problematic gender norms . The narrator often paints himself as some what of a savior, lingering in the magazine aisle of grocery stores, trying to rescue women from their addiction to fashion magazines. All-out filthy, degrading, weird to Ted-Bundy-esque extremes. Completely void of intellect or quality control, but sure to be a favorite among a certain type of reader. Two thumbs down.

    Cannot believe I managed to finish that...what was that?? It tried so hard to be "deep" but was sooo repetitive and patronising. Didn't actually make any sense half the time, but all the while it was trying to tell women what they should learn/be taught to do this and that/how grateful they should be/basically how they should just do whatever the author wants them to do but always "love themselves".

    This is misogynistic, egotistical bullshit, that made me angry to be perfectly honest. I'm done with this author. This isn't poetry, its recycled, repetitive, and uninspired drivel.

    I seriously do not understand the hype. Maybe this just isn't the type of poetry for me, but it felt like the ramblings of 15 year old me. Only if I went back and read my insufferable journals from over a decade ago I know they'd move me more than these works did (and I am a poetry reader not a poetry writer so that should say something). It was the same few topics ("teach women to love themselves" check, got it) and the same blasé vocabulary the whole time (shatter, broken, beautiful). There ar I seriously do not understand the hype.

There are so much more interesting topics to write about than those which were explored in this book! My inner voice actually read the poems in a whiney emo voice and I couldn't take any of them seriously. The couple poems that *were* good felt like they were accidentally good despite the author's best efforts.

    I bought this on the high recommendations on this site. But god damn this reads like an edgy sixteen year old who just went through a break up. I'm half convinced the author is actually some kind of twitter bot that just shits out random combinations of crap you'd find in a diary of a teenager. And anyone who enjoys it is either a teen or too stupid to realise how utter shit (and often patronizing) all this is. I'd give it a 0 if I could.

I've read a poem about going through and past distance just to get to the one you love. long distance. I'd kill the distance to get to you It sounds very simple, I know. Yet, it is something that I'm battling right now, long distance relationship. I was actually on the verge of tears as I read this poem late last night, missing my significant other from 8,000 miles away. Sin's poems aren't entirely about romantic love alone. It also promotes self-love, something that I need to learn. But, I'm giving this only 3 stars because I think I was looking for something light and more inspiring. Some of the poems tend to be repetitive of their subject, I think. I still like it nonetheless. :) One of my favorites: reality. you're unhappy you've been feeling neglected you've been taken for granted and yet you still find ways and or create several excuses as to why you stay in reality you've been holding on to nothing so if in this moment you decided to walk away you'd lose them and at the same time you'd lose nothing you'd gain peace you'd lose them yet find yourself

    I didn't particularly love this poetry collection: it felt too focused of breakups, and it was full negativity. The themes were a bit repetitive: it almost seemed like I was reading the same poem over and over. I found few pages that I liked, but I would honestly recommend other poetry collections instead, like Mouthful of Forevers or milk and honey.

    So repetitive, so patronizing, so shallow in its attempts to be #deep, do not understand the hype. Hitting the enter key a million times does not a poem make. The few poems that I actually enjoyed seemed like they were accidentally interesting and not any reflection of the poet's talent. Skip these, I definitely will not be reading any more of them.

    My Score from 5: 3 It’s pretty much like the first book in both content and potency of poets. Most of them were repetitive especially for a person who has read the first book. However, like the first book, it consisted of some valuable poems about self-love and knowing your value and various relationship related stuff which people like and need to read sometimes. The rest of the poems are mostly superficial and insignificant.

    A brilliant piece of poetry. This book speaks about feminism, self-love and boy-girl relationship. They are all really short and straight to the point , which I loved . It definitely gives those Tumblr-feel vibes and doesn't flow likes standard poetry , but I do not mind at all. I am overwhelmed with feels throughout the book.

    This was a tremendous disappointment. it felt like a string of badly woven clichés and you could just taste the author's desperation and eagerness to be relatable. “you kill your future by mourning the past” It was anything but unique, the majority of poems felt like fillers to get to a certain word count.

    Complete and utter trash. These are re-writes if the first book. Still not actual poetry. And the chutzpah it took to publish about how women should be empowered to choose non-shit men, instead of writing to men about how to not be trash... Don’t waste your time on this. What a load of BS.

    I hate this one after reading this at the beginning of this book: 'stop teaching women how to think like men, we rarely think' The writing has gone a bit overboard here, don't you think? Encouraging women is one thing. But saying guys rarely think? What's your point? Buttering won't work. Demeaning the other sex won't work. Some parts I loved: '' she’s an angel with a filthy mind '' 'and you were a nightmare wrapped in something beautiful a disaster presented as a gift' (Taylor Swift vibes, anyone?!😉) *Here co I hate this one after reading this at the beginning of this book: 'stop teaching women how to think like men, we rarely think' The writing has gone a bit overboard here, don't you think?

Really?! Heart fractured?! This brings out the passive agressive nature in me. Like seriously 🤯😵 *And the gory part.... 'your past lingered like a rope around your neck and so I kicked over the chair beneath your feet' This is plain gruesome 🙁 *For the reader part he wrote: and there she was lying there alone eyes fixated on this page this book these words her emotional mind state unknown but I knew and I wrote this for her I wrote this for you you’re going to be fine' I cannot find the connection here, sorry. *I find this .... : 'dear woman, thank you thank you for being brave enough to love thank you for being brave enough to try once more even when that love goes unnoticed thank you for smiling through the pain thank you for the strength that you’ve displayed may your will to survive be the inspiration for this piece in this moment you are my muse thank you' ..... awkward. I need a break from all this encouragement. To actually know all guys are not jerks. And not every women need not be motivated every second. She needs her caffiene and read and watch silly movies and stuff and cry her eyes out and snore away her problems. It is fun to read his books! Binge reading an author does this to you. Beware.

    Browsed through this at the bookstore again to give the poet the benefit of the doubt, a second viewing if you will. Alas, I'm just not a fan of the style of poetry here. And the typology used didn't add further character to the structurally arranged sentences. The words were arranged with intent, but they do not come off as art, at least to me.

    *Sigh* Unoriginal and very cliche. The only poem I liked in this collection was " your past lingered/ like a rope around your neck/ and so I kicked over the chair/ beneath your feet" because it was the only one that wasn't an overdone platitude about a) loving yourself b) loving someone else or c) trying to get over a breakup. Luckily it was a fast read. I would recommend this to people who just broke up with someone and need lots of reassurance. If you haven't, this is not the book for you. *Sigh* Unoriginal and very cliche.

I was quite surprised though, to see so many bad reviews but still such a high rating. absence and peace. your absence taught me how to live without you time away taught me to find peace in being alone This particular collection, I find, needs a lot more of the reader's participation; how you enjoy it is greatly affected by your own experiences. And maybe that explains the reviews, maybe not. But what I do know is that my personal experiences were shaken from the (hard) truth and the depth that they found in the poems. With that said, it's hard to explain why I felt so connected to the poems, other than the general aspects. tired. I just want to know love like I know hate I just want a love similar to my own sent, text message. you either be consistent or become nonexistent lack of love for self. they hurt you and you think nothing of it they hurt you and you try harder they hurt you and you apologize they hurt you because they don’t love themselves One example of the aspects I'm talking about is the huge amounts of poems about self-love, self-respect, self-esteem, and everything else about how you should be treating yourself. Really, it taught me to cherish myself more and how to go about doing that. It spoke about all those things, and with them, feminism (although I didn't find it quite as empowering as his other feminism-related works). warrior heart. she has the mind-set of royalty and the heart of a warrior she is everything all at once and too much for anyone who doesn’t deserve her she is you she’s always been you Good things aside, I had a few problems too. More often than not, I found some poems quite repetitive. Okay, frequently repetitive, either from his other works or from somewhere that I've already seen written from other people (which I know isn’t his fault; writers write what comes to them, but it still affected the overall feeling throughout). Some poems were just basic, as in Tumblr-y, as seen below. long distance. I’d kill the distance to get to you
