Book Review: The Emphatic Melodies of Life by Amaysha

What struck me most about this collection is its unfiltered honesty. Amaysha fearlessly explores the tumultuous landscape of human emotions, laying bare the raw agony and beauty of life’s experiences and bittersweet nostalgic moments and memories.

As the title has melodies, indeed the lyrical prose stunned me with its musical notes lurking everywhere, in each poem. The author must indeed have musical connection in her life. As music inspired her, moved her, reciprocated with her, the influence is astounding.

Listening to the music,

To the old lost tune,

The melodies,

For which my heart still yearns,

And which make me take a leap.

 Slightly random and abstract, yet the collection is deep and rich…the book doesn’t lend a window to the life of the poet nor it’s an introvert heart’s musings. It is way much heart-winning poetry collection.


You lit the fire,

Into my darkest world,

Little did you know,

That its these melodies that mesmerize me…

 The poet, the mastermind behind these poignant verses, possesses rare gift for capturing the essence of lamenting and heartbreaks with profound depth. Her words resonate, echoing the pain and resilience inherent in the human feelings when being betrayed and sidelined by the loved ones. However it is to be noted that the poet simplified layers of intriguing peels of human emotions into simpler troupe of words.

In Amaysha’s collection, love isn’t merely a subtheme; it’s a visceral, tangible and allied force pulsates through many poems. Whether you’ve endured the storm of heartbreaks or simply appreciate the beauty of poetic expression, this book is a revelation. The Emphatic Melodies of Life is a testament to its themes of love, loss, redemption, melodic essence, and much more. You will find solace in her words, the poetry has the power to renew anyone in the wake of desolation.

Purchase the book from Amazon/Kindle.

Stanza 1: I met a traveller from an antique land Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone Stand in the desert.
