The Nectar Of Pain is a collection of poetry and prose that the pain of love and loss gave birth to. When pain knocks on your door, let it in. If you don’t, it will knock harder and harder. Its voice will become louder and louder. So let it in. Spend some time with it. Understand it. Then walk it to the door and let it leave because it’s time for you to welcome happiness.
This book felt way too personal for me, it felt like I was reading someone else’s diary that is overpowering with their emotion. I can feel the hurt, pain and disappointment coming from that person, perhaps it is what the writer has gone through or is going through.
I have never been in love nor have I ever had my heart broken and I have also never been involved in a romantic relationship and so, I find that this book is not for me but perhaps someone out there seeks to find solace, hope and reassurance within this book. And I hope they do find it.
