“I said, I love you
when I meant something much
more specific, I should have said,
Please don’t leave me,
I’m afraid to sleep alone.”
35th – Mouthful of Forevers by Clementine von Radics
Rating: (Good read, definitely!)
What is it about: Titled after the poem that burned up on Tumblr and has inspired wedding vows, paintings, songs, YouTube videos, and even tattoos among its fans, Mouthful of Forevers brings the first substantial collection of this gifted young poet’s work to the public.
Clementine von Radics writes of love, loss, and the uncertainties and beauties of life with a ravishing poetic voice and piercing bravura that speak directly not only to the sensibility of her generation, but to anyone who has ever been young.
What I Love: The craze for the main piece of this poetry book deserves it. The poetess has her own style and she is great on what she does. She surely knows how to tug the heart.
What I Don’t Love Much: Nothing.
Wise Words:“Getting everything you ever wanted does not make you want less.”
