Many of the poems included here are short and uplifting, with messages such as "be yourself," "you are beautiful," and "this too shall pass." They combine the appeal of short, shareable poems with inspiration and encouragement. Also included are some of White's lengthier, prose-poetic pieces, which address his childhood, his relationship with his father, and past romantic relationships, among other things. Whatever the form, White takes inspiration from the everyday, writing about abstract topics like love, loss, depression, and resilience using concrete, relatable details and scenes. … (més)

I found a few of these poems very beautiful.
It did take me a little while to get used to the format, I couldn’t tell sometimes when one poem was ending and another starting. That being said, I read this as an early e book edition from NetGalley,I think it might be an early formatting issue. The poems have numbers rather than names, I think the page breaks might be in the wrong place. Or maybe it’s just me, this is definitely modern poetry and I’m not totally used to that format yet.

I’d suggest reading the poems in order rather than at random. I feel like I understood what the author was saying more this way.

The book covers poetry about love, loss, depression, death, addiction and illness. There’s a lot about someone trying to love themselves despite their flaws, even as their depression challenged them to do it.

Definitely sad but sad poetry can be moving.

In Songs with Our Eyes Closed Tyler Kent White has woven a powerful compilation of poetry and short prose to inspire and uplift the spirit. To me, these poems especially spoke of being oneself, not being afraid of your full potential, and knowing your true worth. These were lessons I needed at the moment. Lessons I always need.

Poem after poem reminds that you are the stuff of stars, sharing atoms with everything that is. They are a call to mindfulness, and knowing we are all One. There are poems that speak on forgiveness, of yourself, and others, and those that illuminate the less obvious beauty to be found in the depths of loneliness or loss, as well as that found in love and contentment.

you are a
symphony
of stardust
and you were
born to shine
-Songs with Our Eyes Closed

Most poems were succinct, speaking volumes in the ringing silence stretching between words. These poems are morsels to be savoured, one or two at a time. Many make great meditation prompts. There are longer prose pieces I found equally inspiring. Most of the poems and prose are based upon the author's own life, and relationships.

never apologise
for burning too brightly
or for collapsing
into yourself
every night

that is how galaxies are made.
-Songs with Our Eyes Closed

These poems fair vibrate with the poet’s emotion. They seem written with no goal in mind other than to write, and purge feelings, like lancing a boil. Most are intimate pieces, especially the ones on loss and depression. White was brave, to share these poems, these little pieces of heart and soul, that have laid him bare before the reader.

---know that the voids are
simply places for something
more beautiful to grow.
-Songs with Our Eyes Closed

I enjoyed White’s style. By omitting capitalisation, I feel it left the poems unmolded, in a manner of speaking. For me, the lack meant my mind did not latch on to certain words as 'more important’ just because they were capitalised. These have a lovely flow and feel that I wanted to immerse myself in. I have a dislike of poems where each line is capitalised, be it in the middle of a sentence, or no. It comes across as too rigid.

---my biggest fear is that
when I finally find myself
i’ll still be who i am.
-Songs with Our Eyes Closed

I ended up buying an eCopy of the book, and have plans to acquire a hardcopy to keep by my bed for meditation purposes. For any out there who enjoy poetry, this is a must-read collection!

***Many thanks to Netgalley and Andrews McMeel Publishing for providing an egalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. ( )

There were a few of those instagram one sentence breakdowns that I’m not a fan of, but on a whole, this collection is heartfelt, emotional, and strong. (And honestly the one liners didn’t bother me here as there were only a few and nicely dispersed.)

At times, he reminds me of a more romantic, younger Billy Collins (as a huge fan of Collins, this is definitely a compliment). Where Collins takes a place or object and creates an introspective poem, White does this with a person or a feeling.

He writes about finding yourself, being yourself, accepting yourself. He writes of a love, loss, and a spectrum of emotions that come to life with his words.

Of all of the new poets I’ve read this year, White may be my favorite. ( )
