Sarah Erin's Behind Her City Eyes is a heartfelt love letter to the woman she is profoundly in love with. The poems are LGBTQ+ inspired and convey her love for New York City. In addition to learning about the subject of the author's unfulfilled and unrequited love, readers are also introduced to New York City's historical sites and enchanting features. We are swept up on a romantic rollercoaster ride through the East Side, the Hamptons, Ellis Island, Rockefeller Center, Times Square, the Empire State Building, Long Island, Central Park, the subway, and much more. Every poem features New York City as the backdrop and every poem centers on love.
The poetry by Sarah Erin is exquisitely composed and delicately conveyed. Beyond her outward physical appearance, readers are able to sense the depth of Erin's feelings and love for the woman she adores and greatly admires. I was touched by Erin’s romantic details of all the wonderful traits she appreciates in the woman she loves and all the little details she wanted to ask her beloved that every woman secretly wishes someone would ask her. I especially loved that each poem’s aim was for her beloved to reach unconditional love of self while feeling fully appreciated and cherished. I also enjoyed the last poem titled When A Poet Loves You as every woman secretly desires to be immortalized in not only one poem but a whole book. Erin successfully delivers a series of poems that make every reader wish they were the special woman written about in Behind Her City Eyes.
