Loveish is Sakshi’s debut poetry collection. Its a collection of poems about love, well something like it . The book weaves a story about a relationship that feels like the one true love, has moments as passionate and intense like it but ultimately ends in an inconsolable heartbreak. It is about relationships that are not straightforward and linear but complex; relationships that are not exactly based on love or lust but are kinda loveish. The book takes you on a journey of the utopia of love, the ecstacy of lust, the tireless pursuit of a relationship that is loveish, the pain of an inconsolable heartbreak and the unbearable silence of loss expressed beautifully through poetry.
This was a gorgeously written collection of poetry. I’m looking forward to buying a copy because I’ve heard the formatting in the physical form is stunning. The sections it was broken into were absolutely perfect.
It was such a raw, real read. I felt like I was going through these relationships with the author. Everything was expressed so beautifully and clearly.
I really hope the author does more poetry collections, because I will pick them up in a heartbeat. I feel like this is a read everyone can relate to in their own way.
