Breakup Poems: Vol 1 Reviews

  • Tiffany Silver

    ACHE ACHE ACHE.

    This collection is titled appropriately. I love the format. I love the content. The art within the book as chapter breaks. Just an all around solid piece from JR Rogue. Her pain is palpable. I am aching.

    Love the poems she did for the other breakups at the end.

  • Kat Savage

    Rogue continues to pull at all my emotions, this time with Breakup Poems.

    “I write you as a forest fire”

    Ugh. The feels.

    From her choice of words, to her rhythm, to her sucker punch endings, Rogue really k ones how to make you hurt in all the best ways.

    It was torture

    In the best way

    I've always loved J. R.'s words, but this collection makes you feel every ache and twinge along the way.

    I'd been looking forward to this for a long time and it fully lived up to my hopes.

    I love Jen Rogue. Love, love, love her.

    Her poetry is like the alternate reality I live in most of the time - Romanticizing sadness, finding beauty in brokenness, making poetry out of pain. Her poems make me want to crawl inside and live there, in this fictional land of feeling. I especially loved the organization of this poetry collection, featuring the stages of grief and the poems at the end for her readers' breakups. I feel like I've gotten to know friends better through their heartaches and

    I love Jen Rogue. Love, love, love her.

    Her poetry is like the alternate reality I live in most of the time - Romanticizing sadness, finding beauty in brokenness, making poetry out of pain. Her poems make me want to crawl inside and live there, in this fictional land of feeling. I especially loved the organization of this poetry collection, featuring the stages of grief and the poems at the end for her readers' breakups. I feel like I've gotten to know friends better through their heartaches and bonded through the pain we all endure as humans.

    My favorite lines from this collection are:

    "I am only worth chasing when I am

    running away."

    "I imagine it got old pulling dust from

    your lungs every night."

    Favorite poem in this collection:

    "8 months after"

    J.R. Rogue writes heartbreaking pain into beautiful poetry with Breakup Poems. This stunning new release is emotional, the poems had me reminiscing on past loves and riding the waves of emotion alongside her as she unraveled the heavy feelings.

    Split into six chapters; denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance, and rebellion, Breakup Poems tackles the hard hurts, like cheating, first love, divorce, and tentative separation. The poems are relatable, each making me ache, but also making me feel like I've not been alone when I've felt drowned by the heartache with lines like

    Some of the poems are softer, teardrops, while others are smashing fists, screaming words, and strength that one needs when recovering from a loss.

    J.R. Rogue admits she knows life, love, and loss well, her previous works prime examples of this, but Breakup Poems feels the most raw. I wanted to check on her after some of the poems, knowing only real experience could draw out words such as these. The words are presented in a lyrical way, with a really unique format that makes me think this book is best read in a paperback. J.R. Rogue has captured the stages of a breakup perfectly with Breakup Poems and I highly recommend it. It's the kind of poetry that sticks and stays, that will come to you when you need it most.

    Another poetic homerun for J.R. Rogue. Another five-star read. I recognized some of the titles as writing prompts which was awesome to see. As always, the writing is unmatched by most contemporaries. Rogue reaches new heights with aesthetic (that COVER! Those interior images!), cohesiveness, and branding. Love that it was set against the stages of grief. I got excited when I saw this is noted as "volume 1." That means there's more to come and I cannot wait.

    Poetry intimidates the mess out of me because while reading it, I start to feel as if it means something I can't quite figure out.

    In the case of J R Rogue's poems, though, I connect with them so viscerally that I don't care if she's talking about something other than what I'm feeling.

    The title tells you the theme of this collection, and Rogue wastes no time in thrusting you into the pain of a breakup. There are so many lines that dug into me that it's difficult to pick my favorites. But here are

    The title tells you the theme of this collection, and Rogue wastes no time in thrusting you into the pain of a breakup. There are so many lines that dug into me that it's difficult to pick my favorites. But here are a few that give you an idea of the pain and, yes, healing J R Rogue crafts.

    In "The Unkindness of You," she writes, "I have a hard time remembering you are past tense, / even though we sleep / in the same bed - your ghost and I." Who hasn't felt that way after the end of a relationship? In "The Bind that Ties Us" (I love that title), these lines felt like a sucker punch: "I had a dream about you last night / your face was not / your face, / and she / was there." He's gone, he's no longer the man who loved you, and you have been replaced. Such beautiful torture.

    And then, in "Where We Hide our Wild Things," comes this: "I can only love a man with half a plan to leave me." YES. I see you and I feel you, J R Rogue.

    Read these poems, if for no other reason than to realize that someone knows how you felt when your heart was broken. I've been (reasonably) happily married for twenty-five years, and these poems still resound with the way they speak to the hurt that comes of a ruptured relationship and its beautiful, feral agony.

    Jen makes my heart pound without even trying. Poignant, stunning, and packing hard punches, Break Up Poems has all of the words us women need.

    Even her two lined poem brought out all of my feelings. This compilation of poems shook me when I least expected it.
