As a poetry lover, this book immediately stood out to me while scrolling through the upcoming new poetry books on NetGalley. The cover already looked very promising, so I decided to request it. I was so happy to see I got accepted! Read further to see what I thought of this poetry book.
What is it about?
sometimes i fall asleep thinking about you is a collection of poetry on the feeling of never getting closure, that lingering longing you still get even when you know you shouldn’t, and how it feels to finally be able to say, “I have finally let you go,” after years of struggling to find the words.
What did I think of it?
sometimes i fall asleep thinking about you touched me to the deepest core of my heart. It has been a very long time (or perhaps the first time) that a poetry book could touch me like that. It really made me emotional and feel the pain through the words, and I think that’s really special. The words hit so hard, which makes it painful but beautiful all at once.
This is definitely one of my new favorite poetry books!
Here is one of my favorite poems:
I’ll definitely check out more of Hancock’s work!
A song I associated with this poetry book was Drivers License by Olivia Rodrigo.
