Review written by Lakesha Woods
Published October 16, 2013
Monica Little touches subjects of love, heart break, domestic violence, molestation and superficial realities in her new poetry book titled Enter the Inkwell.
If you're expecting la-dee-da types of poems filled with "I love You's" and rhymes this is not the book for you! Brace yourself because this book of poems is filled with a dose of harsh realities.
Monica speaks of being short-changed on love's return in poems like "Men and Me" and being in love under false pretense in poems like "I love You", where the woman thought it was love and ended up being controlled and physically abused.
The poems tell a story of a woman who has endured much suffering and heart ache at the hands of men. Starting from a very young age and being molested; the poem "Forbidden Touch" vividly describes how this young girl felt compelled to keep the touches a secret because she thought is was a sign of love and for love she was willing to remain silent.
The poem goes on to describe how she would like her perpetrator to be punished. While Monica doesn't offer lovey-dubby poems that will make you fall in love, she does include poems that show signs of a woman who has realized her worth. 'LIKE' Monica on Facebook!
