Book Review: Where I Ache by Megan O’Keeffe – Beth

Where I Ache is a beautifully written collection of poetry. Each poem in this book really made you feel what the author was feeling. I could feel her pain and sorrow, her love and heartbreak. I can’t remember the last time a poetry collection made me feel so much. There was just so much emotion in every line of every poem.

I bookmarked so many while reading it, because of how much they moved me. I was stunned by how many of the poems really stood out to me. I just related to so many of them, in so many different ways. I fully expected this book to just be another Milk And Honey, but for me personally, it was much better.

#review #5stars Where I Ache, by Megan O’Keeffe – Didi Oviatt

I can seriously say, “move aside Rupi, because Megan O’Keeffe is here to give you a run for your money.”

With intricate lines, and intimate detail, Megan leads us through an emotional roller coaster of a journey filled with love, self-doubt, desperation, the grief of losing a loved one, and self-reconciliation. The words are written with the sort of emotion that bleeds through and is felt on a real and relatable place of solace.

Review: Where I Ache — Syl Reads

“If I could just slow down I might see that I’ve already got all that I need and that’s Me”

I know you try to fade into the background.

Try to keep the sea of people around you

From detecting any ripples in the water

I know you don’t like hearing

how special you are to me.

But you are so special.

You put so much good light

into the world around you.

There is no one else like you

and I am so lucky to have you in my life.

The main theme of the book is helping others feel less alone by tackling different topics we can relate to. Even if you can’t relate to everything, there are still powerful statements that will resonate with you.
