Within the transition of poetry that continues through the book you are grasping, consists of the author’s past, as well as the scaffolds of her future. Here, existence is defined through pain and introversion of the self. The poems portray an essence of misery, a distorted view of the self, while progressing into mental disorders, crude representations of sexual acts strewed out in an abstract but artistic way, encompassing to the intellectual pursuits that evolve through our lives. Our experiences, emotions, and social interactions fill our lives with the core of our being. Life, as well as death, is what you create it- or, by contrast, as you destroy it. “the unlucky violin plays its sad tune striking a note to each expressed emotion holding the note to realize its dream” —Dancing Dead
