From the up and coming "She Who Rivals" trilogy,
"She Who Rivals the Moon" leads the way. This collection of poetry delves into the depths of dark feminine energy. Though presented creatively, and with sophistication, Melissa M. Combs challenges the reader to break out of the confines of what it means to be a woman, celebrated for more than their leniency, grace, and nurturing ways. To compare women to the moon is to embrace the profound duality innate in femininity. Within these pages women are safe to explore what makes them such multifaceted beings. Raw emotion, sacred rage, sensuality, and assertiveness are not only allowed, but are vital integrations to femininity as a whole.
She Who Rivals the
We Loved, Therefore We Lived, bravely introduces us to the idea, that you can both Love and be Loved by someone and the dynamic still bring forth pain (great pain, at that.) This is not because Love is imperfect, but that Love is being embodied by humans, whom as we all know, are filled with imperfections.
If you are a fan of Emily Bronte's book, Wuthering Heights, you should thoroughly enjoy this book, as
author, Melissa M. Combs, was heavily influenced by the work of Bronte, while writing this collection.
This collection is an assortment of both ill-fated, and soft and romantic love poems. Within the pages, there is a noticeable elegance, reminding readers to find beauty in the midst of their pain. Though reminiscent of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, it is also something entirely of it's own, combining both inspiration from The Victorian Era, as well as our current Era. Furthermore, this collection prompts the wounded reader to make something of their pain, which I believe is needed today more than ever. Young readers are oftentimes navigating the foreign territory of love and loss. This collection is meant to inspire that reader to step out of their stagnancy after loss and into the wisdom of transmuting their pain.
"Some love stories must be rewritten, if not for the sake of the lovers, than for the sake of fairytales. For the hope of all of humanity... you and I, we mustn't end this way."
