Book Review. Lonely – A Collection of Poetry and Prose. Compiled by Robin Barratt. 

I was going to hold off writing my notes on A Collection of Poetry and Prose – Lonely, which is edited by Robin Barrett, until I had read every piece of writing in this extensive volume but I then read poem Forgive Me by Lucy Reid and it all changed. 

Forgive Me is a poem that puts my own thoughts into words. It is an explanation of why I behave the way I do. I immediately wanted to show the poem to my loved ones and help them understand me too. 

I also like the rhythmic prose writing style of Ryan Joel, the seemingly interlinked poems of Courtney Speedy, the story Online by Sameer Qumar and the essay Being Alone by Toni Curran. 

Lonely – A Collection of Poetry and Prose contains pieces of writing on loneliness, grief, depression, regrets, growing old, solitude and choosing to be alone. There are many ideas and perspectives from writers all around the world. Some of these have become cliché but others give new life to this emotion we have all, undoubtedly, felt at one time. 

Hats off to Robin for creating this series of books, which are as follows and available on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk
