The Heart Listens to No One – Book Review

If you want to talk anything regarding poetry, I might be the least eligible person in your circle. I have tried composing some lines a few times (you may find a couple here, but it’s nothing more than amateur stuff). The same goes for reading. I don’t mind going through those tiny snippets by Lang Leav or Rumi. But I have never picked up a complete book. The Heart Listens to No One is penned down by Purba Chakraborty, an extremely talented person from my blogger family (yes, there’s more to her than just blogging, poetry and authoring. SHE SINGS!). That’s probably the only reason why I started reading it.

The Heart Listens to No One: It Hums It’s Own Song

That is the complete title of the book that branches down to five different categories – Love, Longing, Romance, Fond Reminisces and Separation. In my personal opinion, it is a good approach and very well carried out by Purba. Reading a bunch of random poems might not exactly be a good experience for a reader. However, when they are compiled under different sections, they can leave a lasting impact. It’s a relatively short book, but I still read one section at a time. It helped me cherish a particular emotion at one time.

The language is simple, exactly how I love to read, but yet magical. The words flow as swift as a tender breeze caressing your face in a pleasant weather. The emotions are carved out naturally and surround your heart as you read. A few poems touched my heart more, but they were all beautiful collectively.

The ‘Longing’ section of The Heart Listens to No One is my favorite and I would like to mention a few lines from ‘You are My Poetry’, one of the poems from that section:

I only miss you
When I am not writing;
You dwell in the crevices of letters
And in the intricacies of my words
I only miss you
When words fail me,
As you are my poetry
I am your moonstruck poet.

It’s a beautiful book because you can connect!

I have always been fond of words that can connect with you as a reader. The Heart Listens to No One accomplishes that. If you like to read poetry…. It doesn’t matter. If you have a heart that beats, pick up the book and you will love it for sure. The book is available on Kindle –

Anmol Rawat

Anmol Rawat is a writer, which, considering where you are reading this, makes perfect sense. His debut solo book ‘ABCs of Horror’ is a collection of 26 terrifying standalone tales. He thinks Game of Thrones and Supernatural are the best TV series ever made and devours on Nicholas Sparks, Dan Brown, Stephen King & John Green. He would kill for a good cup of Cappuccino, as should all right thinking people.
