After You, In Love Arrest by Mario Gabriel Adame is a collection of love poems that exposes the poet's romantic heart. He speaks about that one love everyone longs for in life after a string of bad relationships which helps them identify the right person. The poems revolve around mutual love and one-sided love that happens many a time in one's life, and also the technology which gives people different types of opportunities to fall in love. The poet captures the angst, excitement and happiness of falling in love through his words. He has tried to go deep into the emotion and capture the nuances and complete meaning of the word love.
The poems capture the beautiful moments of living and the exhilaration love brings into one's life. The collection encapsulates the type of love that one experiences; social networks, getting attracted to someone else's girlfriend and much more. The tension and uncertainty associated with love speak through his poems and they connect well with the current generation, revealing the kind of problems that love faces now. 'She Is' is reflective of the poet's love for someone he thinks is worth all his time. The next section, 'Arrest,' speaks of loss of love, loss of trust, the angst and pain when love ends.
The poet's style of writing is evocative and eloquent. There is a good restraint and balance which make the poems effective. Most of the poems are lyrical, elegant and moving pieces. The poems are profound with an interesting connection of thoughts.
