Through The Darkness, With Love - Volume 1 by Sandeep N Tripathi is a beautifully written composition of love poems about one man’s experience that spans courtships over his lifetime. In a heartfelt and intriguing work, with each poem Sandeep draws the reader into his dark journey of the soul through love’s perils and joys. The author tells a story of hearts in motion and it seems that he has found his soul mate, but alas, he is alone. Was this affair just his imagination? I think not, for only a man who has known love and loss can write with such sensitivity and insight, so poetically.
Reading this book of poems was like breathing in a breath of fresh air. After being scorned by love’s thorns, it is good to know that there is a lighter side of life and we must always look at our journey as lessons and accept the good with the bad, yet remain hopeful, knowing that life must go on. If you have ever fallen in love and experienced heartache, you will undoubtedly relate to the poems in this book. Love, truth and honesty are what you will experience with this work of art. If you have ever read Love Warrior, and Present over Perfect, you will definitely find that these poems convey those exact sentiments of living a life of purpose and seeing the beauty in love, despite the hardships in a relationship. I found this book of poetry an inspirational read indeed.
