Atticus, who is the internationally bestselling author of Love Her Wild, recently released, The Dark Between Stars, a new collection of heartfelt, whimsical, and romantic poems. Atticus has captured the hearts and minds of his nearly 700k followers (including stars like Emma Roberts, and Alicia Keys),with his beautifully raw and descriptive poems and continues to stun poetry lovers with his latest release.
Everything about The Dark Between Stars is thoughtfully crafted, from the enchanting cover art to the beautiful photographs that accompany the poems fittingly. I'm a recent convert to poetry myself. I've been writing my own poems for quite some time, but never actually read poetry in general. I decided that I needed to change that and broaden my horizons, not to mention my understanding of the genre, earlier this summer. So I'm still fairly new to poetry, but I've caught on fast to what works for me and what doesn't. Atticus' poetry works for me. I love it. I find it relatable, whimsical, dreamy, and beautiful.
This collection of poetry is divided into three sections: Stars, Between, and The Dark. I devoured this book in one sitting, I just couldn't put it down. The poems spoke to my soul.
I particularly loved this poem:
"She was powerful
not because she wasn't scared
she went on so strongly
despite the fear."
I highly recommend this collection. You can get it here.
