Since the creation of men and women, physical relationships have been a necessary part of human procreation. This selection of poems in Unreal by Adam Tedesco examines these relationships from various viewpoints, taking into consideration each person's life experiences and what they bring to the relationships. From both assertive and compliant personalities, each poem delves much deeper and examines the link between pleasure and pain. Covering many aspects of physical interaction, the poems are short but meaningful and will take you on a journey of discovery into the subject of dominant and submissive behavior. These thought-provoking poems will spark your imagination with their realism and self-abandonment. The poems push back on society's view of what is normal physical interaction and separate entirely relationships and love from one another.

This collection of poetry is like no other I have come across. Adam masterfully blends vulnerability and domination in a unique style which provokes deep thought into the complexities of love and relationships. He perfectly highlights those deep, dark thoughts and fantasies between men and women and their exploration of each other's bodies. Each poem celebrates the confidence to express your innermost feelings and find the courage to honor your body image. The choice of language used is not for the faint-hearted and can sometimes be brutal and raw. However, if you love poetry that pushes the boundaries and relays a powerful message, then this is definitely worth a read. Unreal by Adam Tedesco will certainly have an impact on you and the subject matter will leave you questioning not only your own mindset but of humanity in general.
