Unhinged

By

Must read 🏆

Olena Rose couldn't have made a better debut. A sublime collection of relatable poems to quench your thirst for poetry.

Synopsis

"Unhinged: Putting the Pieces Back Together" by Olena Rose showcases the unshakable strength and perseverance of the human spirit during times of romantic turmoil. Through emotionally-charged poetic storytelling, the reader is taken on a journey of healing and transformation that gains momentum page by page. By book’s end, one is instilled with an unwavering sense of self-empowerment and confidence to overcome any challenges of the heart.

'Unhindged' is one of the best poetry books I’ve read in recent times. From the first page till the last, Olena's poems had me in a trance. Each and every one of it was soul-stirring. I could relate with her poems on a deeper/personal level and I'm pretty sure that every reader would feel the same. Sometimes, I took my eyes off the screen, closed my eyes and let those lines, emotions, and feelings sink-in. I didn’t read this in a single sitting and I wouldn’t advise you to do that either. It’s a book that should be devoured slowly, little bit little until nothing is left of it. When I first got the book, I made it a point to read a couple of poems every single day, a decision that eventually made the whole reading experience more enjoyable. I half expected the compilation of the poems to be cheesy but the book quashed my assumptions. The choice of words, rhyme scheme, the structure, the intent, and emotions - everything was just perfect. They couldn't have been conveyed any better.




Post-completion of the book, I was brimming with the happiness and satisfaction of having read a good poetry book. I also gave myself a pat on the back for picking it up in the first place. I think it's fair to say that the book is absolutely worth every penny. Its the sort of book which you can re-visit/re-read whenever you're feeling low in life.


I’m going to keep my eyes peeled for Olena's next book. And if it’s a poetry book like this one, I don’t think there’d be another soul happier than me.

UNHINGED: PUTTING THE PIECES BACK TOGETHER

UNHINGED: PUTTING THE PIECES BACK TOGETHER 


Putting the pieces back together 

After someone throws them around 

Like a puzzle completed 

Only to be broken apart 

Time and time again 

Until there is no more art— 

This isn’t the end. 

 

Don’t let an unhinged person 

Tear you apart— 

And if they do, 

Know that this is not your masterpiece, 

This is not unfinished art. 

It is tarnished and ruined. 

It’s time to start anew. 

It is cathartic to let go 

And realize your worth. 


Relish in a new beginning, 

A chance to open a new box. 

Beginning again 

Is the sweetest revenge. 




FALLING 




Deception


Why is it so hard to see?

How do we fall for it so easily?

Shouldn’t we be able to spot it?

No, because we have good intentions

And we have good hearts.

We don’t see it because we don’t have it within us,

So don’t blame yourself for falling into the trap. 



Liars


Sugar.

Artificial sugar.

They may appear the same.

They seem to be the same beneath the wrapper.

They may even taste the same,

But something is always a little off about them.

That’s because at their core,

They are different

And eventually,

You will figure this out… 



Before You Start the Race 


It’s impossible to know 

What goes on in their head. 

So you listen to their words, 

But they don’t add up. 


Your first red flag, 

But you see it as checkered instead. 

The race will get longer 

And the track will go on. 

Before you know it, 

It will seem like there is no end.
