The Language of Emotions is a sincere and heartfelt anthology written by Nicole Scott. The book delves into experiences of love, mostly of romantic and passionate natures. What I like most about the collection is the way in which it is written with a lens of love. It achieves a specific effect, giving the reader the impression that the author is a deep and eternal lover, and can never really run away from her feelings.
I found that the lyrics captured feelings truthfully and beautifully. Love at times makes one fragile and amazed at one’s own vulnerability. At other times, it’s strong and secure. Often, poems are rich in imagery and in delving into loving depths of the soul. As a poet myself, I find some overlap with Nicole’s style and applaud her eye for beauty and sincerity. There are also philosophical questions on the fantasy of love, and it is clear the author wants to feel that her experiences are all real, and not simply fantasy.
Fascinatingly, some poems are written from the masculine perspective, and this adds variety and intrigue to the progression of the collection. It is done in a very subtle way and what I take from this is a most sacred and spiritual fusion of masculine and feminine, where the lover experiences love from the other’s point of view. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in simple verse and straightforward but beautiful poetry on love, which is sincere and thoughtful. It is definitely a piece of work many will identify with and appreciate since the themes are universal.
