Poetry is one of the most expressive literary forms in existence. From the highly veiled and metaphorical ‘Ode to a Grecian Urn’ to the direct rhyme royal of Shakespeare’s Sonnets, poetry is the vehicle by which even the simplest ideas can gain form. In the new collection of poetry entitled Teardrops (published by AuthorHouse) by Lori Meddaugh gives voice to the mundane and the extraordinary, alike.

From the offset, Teardrops sets itself apart from other poetry collections. Tackling issues and concepts that affect the urban world, Teardrops endeavors to express the hardships, trials and tragedies that face those living in the inner city. Featuring poems with such titles as ‘Money’, ‘Sirens’ and ‘Glock’s, Teardrops emerges as a voice for those that have none.        

However, not confining itself to pessimism, Teardrops also touches on subjects that give the human spirit hope, such as the poem entitled ‘Roses’.

A bed of satin
A kiss of roses
Your touch so soft
Your eyes so embracing
Nothings real when you’re near
Everything is still
And you lift me up to the clouds
And my heart is what you steal

Teardrops is a sophisticated and unique collection of poetry that offers the kind of surprising insight that has become rare in modern poetry.
