Kristal Mayfield – Review of The Hell Within Me
The words of this poetry jumped out and grabbed the very soul of me. The rawness and transparency that comes through each poem touched me deeply. A very good read!!! One of my favorite poems (can’t pick one) is “Broken Pieces”… “a calmness has settled over me now that I know the bitter truth. The calm before the storm, Me – learning to live without you ”
Be ready to feel!!! C.B. Roberts will take you there !!
Where do I begin? Let me just say that I have been a lover of books since I was a child, but my first love has always been poetry since I started reading it as a teenager. So, when I heard about this book, I simply just had to have it. It was everything I expected it to be and so much more. I devoured the entire book in 20 minutes. There are so many complex emotions in one stanza alone that would fulfill any avid poetry reader’s expectations. C.B. talks about love that is chaotic yet calming, destructive yet hopeful, and love that is both dark and light. Love you give up, yet you can’t live without. A love so strong it hurts. I had quite a few favorite poems in this book. Craving, I Want You, Inception, Missing You, Obsession, Open Your Eyes, and Words. But, my absolute favorite was Dreams. The thought of being with the one you love only in your dreams is so utterly heartbreaking, but breathtakingly beautiful at the same time.
I will be reading this book over and over. It is something I will never tire of. C.B. has written his way into my heart and you will feel the same when you read his work.
