Isabel Scheck’s Astrophile: A Poetry Collection is a pleasing collection of poems that expresses pure and sincere feelings of love. A girl’s love is so bright and beautiful like the stars in the night sky. However, just like many other things, there comes a time when it all fades away. Read Astrophile and immerse yourself in the deep, heartfelt messages found in every poem. Astrophile is a profound collection of poems that stirs my emotions right from the start. The poems I read moved my heart and they held my attention right to the very end. This book will surely be appealing to those who have experienced the ups and downs of being in love. The raw and subtle emotions in each piece can be felt from every line of poetry.
The selections found from the start until the middle of the collection gave off an innocent and pure feeling, like the first blossoms of love. As I read on to the end, I could then feel the pain and longing radiating from the verses. The line “perhaps, one day I’ll find someone who loves me enough to stay on Earth and not want to be galaxies away from me” resonated with me and I couldn’t help but shed a tear for this lonesome soul who dreams of finding love again. To me, this poetry collection perfectly expresses the passion of those who fall in love. However, as time moves forward, some things and people change, and often someone you thought would stay forever leaves and you are left with nothing but memories and an aching heart. Astrophile is about love, heartache, and yearning and it has touched my heart and soul with its heartfelt words. I found each poem to be awe-inspiring and earnest and I hope to read more of Isabel Scheck’s remarkable poetry.
