I'm reviewing someone else's work and not the person who published it on Smashwords.
The poetry is random. Some good ones in there. I skipped two because I didn't want to read them as the titlles told me what the the content was. Seemed to end abruptly.
Overall good work
Interesting take on the humble fruit. What I found while reading your poem, was the wording was fruit but the imagery was like you were talking subtlety of a person you loved or you were in love with this fruit and the fruit was a person. Lol
Seriously though, great piece of work.
Messy formatting. Too many dashes segmenting the lines between. I found I could barely pause for breath, and was unable to read it with enjoyment. I would space the lines out and leave out the star astericks.
Lauren Scharhag, writes of many things in a rather complex narrative. The view isnt always nice and sometimes disturbing. I was reminded of minced meat and surgical procedures for some reason after reading one of the poems!! I found many of the poems werent agreeable to me. Giving this one star largely because I didn't enjoy it.
