Crimson Lyrics by C.b. Roberts
If you’ve ever experienced the pain of unrequited love or the heartbreak of giving your soul to the wrong person, this collection is a must read.
Crimson Lyrics is the second collection of poems by master poet, C.b. Roberts. He rivals Poe with his use of metaphors and contradictions, sucking you into the vortex of dark, angry, confused longing for unreturned love. The way he goes from absolute acceptance to complete refusal to surrender in just a few stanzas, astounds me. Just when you think you know where he’s going with a poem, he kicks you in the heart with an ending you didn’t see coming. All of them affected me in some way, especially Escape, Lament, and Shackled. But the title poem, Crimson Lyrics, gutted me, and Tonight completely destroyed me. This is not a collection for the faint of heart as there is no happily ever after. But if you’ve ever experienced the pain of unrequited love or the heartbreak of giving your soul to the wrong person, it is a must read. 5 Stars!
