A collection of profound and representative poems

Reviewed in India ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ on 27 October 2022

I Am In Itself Poetry In The Dark by Michelle Ayon Navaja is her 8th book published which is a prose poetry collection. This book is her official entry to Amazon’s Pentopublish 2022 book publishing contest. It is a prodigious poetry collection recounting the lives of women, uncovered from their guiltlessness and thrown into the dark. This poem collection is the flawless condensation of damage, anguish and obscurity. These poetries give the reader the chance to comprehend the agony in real life.

This collection of poems encompasses a range of authoritative and touching stanzas that address a variety of sentiments and understandings in regret, recovery, etc. In this persuasive and empirical collection, the poet has exposed some common practices and set about redefining them. Experienced the magnitude and supremacy of prodigiously beautiful words which are a bit heavy to digest by everyone.

Poems hatched from a passionate heart who is so much in love

Reviewed in India on September 18, 2022

These poems are hatched from a passionate heart who is so much in love. Always I wonder how Mich is driving my imaginations to the next higher level. And in this book, her 7th book she just made me drenched in her beautiful musings as usual.. No one, but Mich can only think about being herself a โ€œspotifyโ€ for her love. Itโ€™s a wonderful creativity. And all those titles have become true brands of the poetries.. They are unique and very sharp. In this book one can find many poetry forms like Etheree, Zappai, Kimo, Hay(na)ku, Naani etc.. Some of them were totally new to me. So thanks a lot Mich for introducing me to some of the new poetic forms as well presenting this wonderful creation to the whole universe.

It Ain’t Winning If Without You (Amazon Review)

i’ve posted this Amazon review over at my IG and FB page four days ago hoping to find and thank Saadiya for this wonderful review.

little did i know that she’s one of us here in WP …Sadje as we fondly call her (https://lifeafter50forwomen.com/2022/09/13/is-blogging-akin-to-a-message-in-a-bottle/)

A poetry book to treasure

When I started reading this book, I expected to read poetry about love. What I found was a rainbow of emotions here. Michelle has expressed love in every poem of hers in a different way. Love, loss, anger at loss and celebration of love found in many ways is the hallmark of her poetry. I’d recommend this book for every person who has fallen in love.

P. S

thank you for the 5 stars Saadiya๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

Book Review (It Ain’t Winning If Without You)

i am pleased to read that this review emphasized on the fact that “It Ain’t Winning If Without You” is true to its title and cover design. why? i’ve read books with titles and cover designs that are not fully justified by its content. for me it’s misleading and unacceptable.

Beautiful collection of poems

Reviewed in India on 28 August 2022

Poems are the one which can attack our emotion easily. The author has an amazing quality of target to attract the readers through their emotions. This is a book with full of beautiful collections of poems. I loved each and every line of it. I could also relate to some of the poems so much close to me and I became more emotional after reading some it.
The language is awesome and captivating. The title is true to the content and the cover of the book is mesmerizing. The whole mood of the book is a romantic one but in a good way. The expressions of each poem that is expressed through the words are truly amazing. If you are a poetry lover, you will definitely love it. If not also, you would love to pick poetry henceforth.

Beautiful poetry book with different themes!

Reviewed in India on 16 August 2022

This book is a collection of poems themed on our day to day life, challanges and the difficulties we encounter.

It has been divided into several parts. The work of different individuals can be seen here. Different thoughts, different opinions, different prospective about life has been penned down.
Topics like, Somewhere, How, Love, After Dark, Beathe, Alone, Song Lyrics and Peace are there.

‘Song Lyrics’ by Kristine Joy Verdeflor Scianneaux, is a very short poem but I liked it the most. Here, the poet has expressed emotions very beautifully.

Sad hymm or lovely melody whatever it is, if we are happy, if have a clue about life then it is all music to our heart.

The language is lucid, the expressions are beautiful.

Very interesting poetry book. Highly recommed.

Very Intriguing

Reviewed in India on 22 August 2022

Don’t own the pain don’t own the hurt. because even if my lips are sealed i, too, am hurting i, too, am broken. and, i too am bleeding dying inside.
don’t assume I am okay just because I smile the sweetest it’s my choice to smile and grieve silently. my pain is mine alone not for the whole world to know not for the entire world to celebrate.

Oh my God, I just love these poems in the book. I don’t know, I like reading poems nowadays and I feel like I can relate and connect with them. Just see the above para about “Pain” and how beautifully the author portrayed each line to understand and endure.

Everyone has their pain or suffering, sometimes we may not open up about that with others because some people don’t want to share with the world sometimes, they just want feel their pain alone.

“you speak to me when you have nothing to say you embrace me when you feel the numbness of your body you hold me when you are in complete doubt you love me in your silence. yet, your eyes speak of a thousand words unspoken your eyes embody an embrace not even indifference would have a chance your eyes hold a sense of confidence and conviction. for even if you love me in your silence your eyes scream of home for me.”

I feel like this poem attacking me and reminding me that how single I’m not expected this.
But totally love this poem about “Love”

“it’s the sweet-bitter sensation that makes coffee magic and an illusion it confuses the sensitive palate it diffuses an angry heart it calms a desolate soul”

Okay, now coffee love, come on, who doesn’t coffee right? Coffee is perfect for everything, it’s a life to my soul, but man, author written coffee love about the one who share and the one who make coffee for their love… Really, that’s so amazing to read… I really each and every poem in the poem… While reading each poem, I just forget myself travelling with those words and made me smile whenever I read touching lines and I was “wow”

It contains poems for all moods of love

Book : It Ainโ€™t Winning If Without You
Author : Michelle Ayon Navajas

The most beautiful lines I got in the book From the poem of Baby, Can We Take It Slow?

“Of the many things you’ve said i kept my silence, for my words are sacred i’d love to use them to speak of kindness love and compassion but for once, just for once and may the universe forgive me if i do this.”

2022 the longest year that has ever been is almost at an end, and that means itโ€™s time for us to break out the calculators and tabulate life and check out this beautiful poetry book by Michelle Ayon Navajas.

The tone of the book is humourus and sarcastic and lyrical. A great collection of poem. It contains poems for all moods of love. Everyone will find something which will speak directly to his or her heart. All in a few words: simple, nice, engaging side of unrequited love. Leave all specifications, hey you pick it up.

With heart-wrenching poems flickering through the pages, this is a book that will touch the reader’s soul. Penned from the dexterity only a maestro poet can possess, this book was one of my best reads for the year. The concepts incorporated in this book were beautiful and I couldn’t get enough of the phenomenal wordplay. The author has outdone herself with this poetry collection and I cannot wait to read more from her.
