I found it very easy to relate to the speaker and felt emotionally connected in nearly every poem. I'm not usually one for poetry, but I loved this collection. There was such passion and sorrow, cynicism and hope, frustration and love. The imagery is just beautiful.
Definitely a wonderful read!

This collection of poems runs the gamut from passion between a couple, a parent grieving their child growing up too fast, scorned lovers and more. My favorites included the title poem "Breakfast Anytime", an acrostic which tells an interesting story; "Amazement", a sweet poem told from an ill child's perspective, and "The Cure for a Broken Heart", a cute piece about a young woman seeking a doctor's advice on how to get past a break up.
I recommend this collection for poetry enthusiasts, as well as those that enjoy lyrical imagery. Very well done.
