How does a person feel when trapped within the walls of their own making? What happens when someone gives everything about themselves to the one they love? These are some questions touched upon in Tower Road: Devotionals, a collection of poetic writing pieces and poems by Kaya Black. These pieces convey existential ideas and thoughts shared from the point of view of narrators in different stages of their lives, coming from varied backgrounds. Black's poetic tales are surreal and full of metaphors, taking readers on their own journeys to derive meaning from the pages. These stories cover a wide range of themes and topics, such as the search for self, unrequited love, losing oneself, the cyclical nature of everything, and much more. Black's work feels personal and intimate yet carries universal human values and themes that will appeal to a broad spectrum of readers.
Apart from Kaya Black's own pieces, the book contains inspirational quotes and poems from famous authors and popular poets that fill up the pages. These pieces are abstract and penned in a lyrical style that will give poetry lovers much to decipher. The abstract nature of these poetic stories brings a quality to the narrative that feels almost ethereal and dreamlike. Tower Road: Devotionals is a unique piece of work that gives you a lot to ponder about. Black's poetic verses are emotionally cathartic and bound to light a spark in the reader's imagination. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the reading experience and can't recommend it enough to poetry lovers.
