Book Description
The Shadows of Life are emotions; the thoughts, desires, and aspirations trailing in our wake. Shadow-like in manner but shrouded by our physical form, we often seek to reveal them only in the darkness—sometimes of the day but other times, of our lives. Segregated into three sections, this book is a compilation of poems and prose, dealing with quotidian feelings such as love, longing, lamentation, and moreover, the spaces between them. The words in it will resonate with the reader’s own voice, rendering life to the untold stories carried within. For in the matters of the heart, we are all one and the same.
My Thoughts

The year I decide to read more poetry is the year that I am reading great poetry books. This one is not the exception. Shadows of Life. Firs thing I noticed was the necessity of Nazreen to let the words out. I know the feeling, the urge to say the things, to put it all in paper. I like how honest and real it feels. Love, Impossible love, not letting go and letting things behind, decisions we make everyday and how those affect our lives, betrayal, relationships, hate, forgiveness. Reading some of the poems made me go back to some periods of my own life and feel like I was reading about myself. That is how this book made me feel, like I could relate to what the Author is sharing with us. With each poem Nazreen tells us a story, takes us on this journey, with a beautiful, honest and real writing. Shadows of Life, a collection of poems every poetry lover should read.

"I will always 
Wonder why
I could not touch
Your heart.
Why we were
So close?
And sill
So far apart".

I was sent a copy of the book by the Author in exchange for an honest review.
