The author writes with sincerity, giving us a book of very honest poetry that covers a variety of emotions and experiences. There are lovely poems, there are sharp and jagged ones, there are ones that sparkle, there are heartbreaking ones, and there are quiet ones that stuck with me days after I had read them. One of the things I particularly enjoyed was the way the poems are arranged in the collection; when read altogether, they tell a story. The poems lead the reader into the excitement of love, through the hurt and darkness of heartbreak and loss, and on to hope. There is healing as life--and the poetry here--continues.
It's clear that Shelby Leigh is gifted poet who has worked hard to refine her skill. I highly recommend this book, and hope that we'll see more of her work published in the future!
It Starts Like This would have been the perfect poetry collection when I was heartbroken and searching for something more out of life. It would have helped me when I needed it and I believe this collection could easily help anyone who currently going through something hard in regards to love or searching for themselves.
One poem the resonates with me is, Mirror, Mirror:
"I saw her once
in a reflection
the one that used to be me
I barely recognized her
with eyes full of life
and a smile that grazed
when did I stop
the one that used to be me
a mirage in the mirror
with soft fingertips
and a spirit so carefree
and just like that she
a tangible memory
of what I used to be
before I stopped loving myself
and my smile faded
and I never set myself free"
I have to say this is one of my favorites (and I have many that I bookmarked on my kindle) because it reminds me of when I was going through the toughest and only heartbreak and how I lost any type of love for myself. It reminds me of my past that I appreciate because without losing myself I wouldn't have found myself... That's what this poetry collection did for me.
It Starts Like This is for those who lost a love and is searching for a way back to themselves. It's beautiful.
The poetry and expression are accessible and easily understood, and Leigh's imagery is often quite stark and raw, but that is where her strengths as a poet lie.
That being said, this is a book that is probably even better when picked up occasionally and read over time, instead of in two longer sittings, as I found that some of the imagery and ideas were repeated from time to time, albeit in different ways and in varied expression.
Even among the poems that didn't appeal as much to me personally, there are some incredibly powerful lines that forced me to stop and contemplate their truth and the magnificent way in which they were written. It should not be considered a criticism, though, that some poems appealed less than others: poetry is perhaps the most intensely personal and subjective form of writing, and what speaks strongly to one reader will merely whisper to another.
Leigh has penned some beautiful poems here, my favourites being 'Scrapes' and 'Fears'.
I really enjoyed this collection of poetry! It was honest, sweet, and hopeful with just enough darkness to keep it interesting. Shelby Leigh has a direct poetic voice that reminds me of Amanda Lovelace. All of the poems were solid, and there were five or six that knocked the wind out of me! While there were a few cliches I could have done without and a few poems that could have been trimmed down, It Starts Like This is an excellent collection for fans of Milk and Honey, the princess saves herself in this one, and love, and you. I look forward from more from Shelby! Also, follow her on Twitter and Insta because she's a lovely human.
