Love by Night: A Book of Poetry

Love by Night: A Book of Poetry

More of a story than a collection of poetry, Love by Night will whisk you away from your world and into the dreamy romantic night.

Love by Night begins with anxious hesitation and nervous attraction, grows into tender affection, blossoms into passionate love, delves deep into whimsical dreams, and finally builds an image of an idyllic future together, as the reader develops along with the two characters of this poetic story.

Written as a conversation between two points of view in constant change and flux with each other, this book invites the reader into the conversation about the love that connects one person to another, but also all of us to each other.

Through this written testament to the emotional journeys books can take us on, S. K. Williams breaks down stereotypes, sexism, relationship roles, and brings awareness to mental health, grief, anxiety, depression, how to move forward, how to love in a healthy way, and, most of all, how to love yourself when it feels impossible.

    This is a lovely little collection. At times just a bit too sentimental and saccharine for my tastes, but with a collection about love maybe that's to be expected. Poetry is a difficult genre to revie...
