    Loved the poems from Forbidden...Shraddha is a very sensitive soul.

  • Emerson Rose Craig

    Forbidden is a collection of poems by author Shraddha Patel that touch on subjects like love, philosophy, self, and nature. I found the pieces in this book to really resonate. They explore a lot of different ideas, but as you read them, you can also really start to get an idea of who the author is and how they view the world. I thought that the language of each piece was captivating and brought the poems to life. Whether by beautiful description of place, intriguing metaphor, or the way a feeling is described, I was captivated and invested in each piece. This book has over a hundred poems in it, which means that even if not all of the poems resonate with you, there is sure to be several that do. My favorite (at the moment) is perhaps one of the early poems in the book ‘Will.’ This poem really struck me from the very first line, ‘I said so much…In so many ways.” This really is a beautiful collection of work, and if you enjoy reading poetry, I would definitely recommend reading this book.
