    So, if you follow me on snap, you know I have poetry nights where I post snaps of some of my favorite poems from the collection I'm currently reading. Some books I have issues finding poems to snap, whether they are not good or just not very snappable (multiple pages or weird forma...

    This is a pretty good first effort. The poems deal in too much abstraction for my taste, without enough concrete imagery to really grab onto -- and perhaps I'm put off by having advice dispensed to me by a speaker who is 26 years old? I'm trying to figure that one out. There are a few ...

    Tyler Kent White is now a new favorite poet because of Songs with Our Eyes Closed. There's so, so many lines I bookmarked in this book, that I just need to have. The way he's written some of these poems were just beautiful. Two of my favorite lines from this ARC was "you are a symphony...

    This is a deeply moving, emotional and heartfelt collection of poems. I enjoyed reading through all of them and being drawn in by the powerful way the author wrote each line. Truly a wonderful collection. ...

    Leer Songs with our eyes closed es recordar y revivir todos los desamores y los desengaños amorosos, el sufrimiento de perder a un amigo o a alguien con quien planeabas un futuro. Aprecié mucho las analogías y metáforas para describir sentimientos que de otro modo son muy difícil...

    I recieved a free digital copy of this book from Netgalley for an honest review. This poetry book is full of heart and emotion. My words couldn't possibly do the author justice. I definitely know a few people this would make a great gift for. My favorite two parts: You are a ...

    There is a certain ability, you could call it, magic or art or sometimes a feeling, something that moves or sways you deep inside. Listen, I am simply saying that I could relate to these poems. I'll leave the magic to Mr. White and his words, but if you love poetry and you also seek to...

    It has some precious pieces to read again and again. But it is not a bunch of poetry that can be noted to have a wow factor. Nevertheless, it does have some insight speech of our heart, unspoken. ...

    This was a very mixed bag for me. The poetry ranged from the kind of fluffy poetry that somebody pastes below an instagram photo of hands being held, or a sunset, or the like, to some powerful, personal poetry about the poet's relationship (or lack thereof) with his father. So about a ...

    What I love in this anthology of Tyler Kent White are the motivational poems that uplift one's self. There are poems also about love and loss, but those inspirational poems are, I consider, quite remarkable. I can give this as a present to friends because I know that they will apprecia...

    I really loved this. I've been on a little poetry break after reading a few that were just really disappointing, so finally picking this one up randomly tonight had raised my hopes on the end of this break nearing. Thank goodness I kept going because I connected with so many of thes...

    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 formatt...

    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 n...

    4.5 Stars 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 re...

    A Poet's Journey of Love, Loss and Other Experiences... I picked up Songs With Our Eyes Closed on a good feeling and it was a wise choice I have read this well-written collection of poems from Tyler Kent White. As his debut, all of his poems are common themes many modern poets faced...

    I did enjoy some poems but I could get to it with my heart. It was OK for me, but it could be really good for someone else. "Such is the fault of man that we can speak and ask others to listen but we can not listen and ask others to speak" ...

    I received this as an ARC on NetGalley. I think this might be the first poetry compilation I received from there that I rated more than 1 or 2 stars! I like that the author plays with style, form, and diction. There were some good literary devices sprinkled throughout (imagery, ...

    It is just as colorful on the outside as the words are on the inside. I love the expanded vocabulary, which at times, had me reaching for my dictionary. But, I enjoyed the challenge. There were a few times that I was brought to tears. And many times, where I related so deeply, it hurt....
