The Hell Within Me by C.b. Roberts

The Hell Within Me - C.B. Roberts

I don't read very much poetry, but this book came highly recommended to me. The Hell Within Me is packed with poetry of anguish and heartbreak. It's nicely done. The imagery and verbiage were appealing in that heartbreaking kind of way. Five stars! Some of my favorite passages:

"From ashes I came
To ashes, I'll return.
But tonight I'm content
To sit here and burn."
(From the poem, Burn)

"It was only love,
It only drove me to my knees.
Rendering me hopeless
Like an incurable disease."
(From the poem, Just)
