Book Review: Milk and Honey
Milk and Honey is a poetry book published in November of
2014. Minimalistic sketches are plentiful adding depth
and visualization to stories focused
on the hardships of intimate relationships, abuse, pain, and loss,
from a feminine perspective. Different pains are revealed
within each of the four chapters: The Hurting, The Loving, The
Breaking, The Healing.
Personally, as someone who has experienced abuse and mental
illness, I believe this beautiful work of poetry describes internal
conflict in ways those struggling may not be able to articulate.
References to substance abuse and difficult upbringings
connect the audience of readers to the personal traumas of the
narrator. As a reader, you feel a mutual understanding and
connection to the harsh and cruel experiences described. A
sense of relief is felt in The Healing when strength is found in
the darkest moments. A quick read in the style of internal
dialogue, the suspense throughout this piece is enough to keep
you reading front to back the first time you pick it up. Many
aspects make this book a great one. The sense of gut-wrenching
remorse experienced when putting your faith in people with
foul intentions. Learning how to cope with the memories and
let go of the fear. Reclaiming body, mind, and soul after
someone has vandalized and sodomized. Learning to accept
there is no fault for victims in trauma. All of these things make
this story a true journey to recovery and an accurate description
of pains experienced all too often as a young adult.
