While some of these poems and words were very opposite of how I feel about romance and romantic love, I did think that this book was very vulnerable and an honest insight into the authors life, which I really liked.

I'm not a very mushy person. I hate overly romantic books and movies. I believe that Love or "wuv" is weakness and ruins everything. Love as a tool for forgiveness and hope and expectations. I may not have gone through her exact experiences but I can empathize and understand.
I did enjoy her letters more because they were more in depth in contrast to her poetry that were akin to snapshots. The poems I really enjoyed were To Dream in English. This stanza in particular: To dream in English, Is what they did.
Sacrificed the beat of their hearts, For Yankee Possibilities. I have issues this I know, But these issues make me strong. They protect my mind and soul, From the corruption of a shallow world. I will definitely read more from her in the future. Sep 19, Veronica rated it it was ok. Also, I didn't like any of her rhyming work- it seemed too juvenile, like forced rhymes. Jun 03, Genessis Herrera rated it it was amazing. I really like this book because its completely based off of the authors life and perspectives. Also its written off in sections and every little section has poems that relate to the title.
It's based off of her heartaches, past relationships, how she got over them, all love. Its not all fully based on the past love that she had for men which is nice because she also describes the love for her grandfather and nephew. So the book also has different types of loves that she has felt which is great s I really like this book because its completely based off of the authors life and perspectives. So the book also has different types of loves that she has felt which is great so you don't get bored.
I like how her stories or the way she feels can relate to many other woman and how she chooses her words wisely in the introduction. In the introduction she says she isn't try to teach anyone how to love just simply how to feel. I think anyone that just wants to read a love story or love life of someone else would really enjoy this book. It's as if you're reading someone's journal and finding out more about a person. It's really eye opening especially if there are moments that you can relate, the author is really true with her words. If you really want to read something off love perspectives this is the book.
I typically do not enjoy poetry, but I found Letters, To The Men I Have Loved engaging. Mirtha Not every relationship you have with males are romantic. Poetry. Letters To The Men I Have Loved, by Mirtha Michelle Castro Marmol Poetic Words, .. This is originally meant to be about romance, just two people. Yet it's true.
The author was originally going to name her book "Becoming a Woman" and now I understand why because you can tell she has grown through every section of the book. She herself describes that she was naive and didn't know much. I'm really in love with this book I've read it countless times and the same day I bought it I went through it all you can't stop reading once you start.

Really horrible sentences strung together to attempt emotionally evocative art.

The letters read as though an 8 year old with intense notions of love and sex has created a stream-of-consciousness journal detailing her feelings. For instance, none of my friends has ever experienced love at first sight on a yacht I mean, if I were on a yacht, I probably I would definitely fall in love immediately , or run into an ex while in a small bistro in Paris, but what can I say, I guess my life isn't as glamorous or filled with such angst and heartbreak.
Amazing I have had this book for about a good 2 years now and I finally took the time to sit and read it. Im going through one of the hardest things in my life with the man that I love and that I thought loved me, and this book gave me so much insight and clarity to the feelings and thoughts that I've had daily through this new and tough journey of my life. I definitely recommend this book to anyone woman who is currently going through or who has been through something in not so good relationship Amazing I have had this book for about a good 2 years now and I finally took the time to sit and read it.
I definitely recommend this book to anyone woman who is currently going through or who has been through something in not so good relationships. Definitely well written.

I read this more for research-- to look at the sort of pieces that gain one Instagram writer fame. It was not really my cup of tea but it is very raw and I see what it appeals to so many.

This book took me a long time to read. Mostly just because I was really breaking apart every single page. I highlighted and underlined the crap out of this book. There was so much in this book to digest. Each letter bringing a new feeling to the front of your mind and heart. I am a true letter lover. I have been since I was little. I use to have this fairy book that was just like envelopes glued on pages that you opened with letters in different handwriting and colors.
Love is a really deep and very romantic word. As a rule, it is associated with the nice feelings, which force people to do strange, and sometimes even dangerous things to prove their greatest intentions! Romantic Poems for Her will capture the heart of even the most unattainable girl!
Romance is always connected with various Love Poems and sonnets. To think that we are now here, and bear our part! Not a day passes—not a minute or second, without a corpse! To think how eager we are in building our houses! To think others shall be just as eager, and we quite indifferent! To think how much pleasure there is! Have you pleasure from looking at the sky? Do you enjoy yourself in the city? Or with your mother and sisters? Your farm, profits, crops,—to think how engross'd you are! Yourself, forever and ever! If otherwise, all came but to ashes of dung, If maggots and rats ended us, then Alarum!
Then indeed suspicion of death. Do you suspect death? How beautiful and perfect are the animals! How perfect the earth, and the minutest thing upon it! The trees have, rooted in the ground! I swear I think there is nothing but immortality!
