    I've read a lot of Lynch's poetry over the years, and in my mind this is her best book yet! There's something quite earnest about the messages here which avoid the trite trappings of horror in order to dig her poetic fingers a little more deeply into the gristle (just like on the cover...

    ?There are so many things that I don?t have a place for on paper / so they float in my bloodstream.? ? pg 78, Excerpt From Skinned (1999) In the last year, I?ve read a lot of horror themed poetry, all of which has blown me away. I never realized such a thing existed until ...

    "She stood tall upon the shores of hell / And set her pretty self on fire." -Donna Lynch's poetry collection is a beautiful exploration into the hauntings that can dwell both in the world around us and within our own bodies and minds. Each piece shares a new story of what it's like liv...

    "Every ugly thing needs a home, and the space inside your / head works nicely." Choking Back the Devil is the second collection I've read from Donna Lynch, and I loved it so much! These poems were gorgeous and haunting, and I really enjoyed my time reading them. I found this collect...

    Demons come in many forms Some with teeth and some with horns But none so vicious as the hordes That came to be when you were born. Two of the literary genres I will never stop reaching for ? in fact, they were the two genres I cut my teeth on as a young reader, so many years a...

    I really liked "Borderlines: A Horror Story in 7 Small Parts" and "Cry," but those are the only poems that stood out to me in this book. I wanted to like this collection more than I did or be rattled in some way while reading it, but to me it lacked the depth to do so. ...

    Horror poetry is a recent discovery for me. I didn't know I needed it until I tried it and now I can't live without it. All of the many voices I have listened to so far are identifiably individualistic. I think that if someone were to give me a blind taste test--I could sample a poem w...

    This collection of poems seemed to speak directly to me. Some of Donna's poems put into words feelings which I?ve felt, but never could express so eloquently. So even though all of the poems were darker in nature, they had an uplifting quality to them because it was like I was readin...

    ?The horror novel may be hundreds of needles inserted into the flesh over the course of days or weeks, but the poem - if done right - can be an ax to the torso? (94). This exactly. I loved this brutal, beautiful horror poetry from Donna Lynch. Almost all of these pieces were 4-...

    "There is a fear, deeper than fear/ A terror we all encounter/ But there's no lovely mask on mine." I don't think I've read anything that has been quite so beautiful, raw, and dark all at the same time. Donna Lynch truly has a talent like no other, and I'm here for whatever else thi...
