    1.5/5 Gosh, I really wished I had liked this poetry collection better. I have a soft spot for narrative poetry and Instagram-sized pieces but I believe the key to successful poetry which doesn’t rhyme is mastering internal rhythm, which is something Faraway doesn’t really excel at. Although some verses have imaginative wordplay and beautiful imagery, for the most part this collection struck me as shallow. It didn’t contribute anything new to the topics of mental health and heartbreak, and the met 1.5/5 Gosh, I really wished I had liked this poetry collection better.

    I've been feeling like getting back to my poetry roots lately and decided to request a few up and coming poetry books through Net Galley to get back into reading it. Poetry was one of my first loves. I majored in creative writing and studied under the amazing Nikki Finney, had over a hundred poems published in literary journals and used to do occasionally scandalous poetry readings in coffee houses and local TV back before I got busy with parenting and more boring elements of grown up life. I wa I've been feeling like getting back to my poetry roots lately and decided to request a few up and coming poetry books through Net Galley to get back into reading it. Poetry was one of my first loves. I majored in creative writing and studied under the amazing Nikki Finney, had over a hundred poems published in literary journals and used to do occasionally scandalous poetry readings in coffee houses and local TV back before I got busy with parenting and more boring elements of grown up life. I was really curious what was being published these days and how it would relate to my old loves like Anne Sexton, Robert Frost, Sylvia Plath, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Theodore Roethke, etc. I feel great empathy for the author, who calls himself Faraway, and I'm sure that many people (particularly teens) will love this poetry. I just did not care for it. One of the hallmarks of great poetry is that it uses words as art -- they have multiple meanings, or the author blends them so that they are rich with alliteration, rhythm and/or rhyme, they say things in ways that nobody thought of before to say things we've all felt. This is why we adopted thousands of sayings from Shakespeare, because he knew how to say something in a brand new way that perfectly expressed what we felt. This is not that kind of poetry. There is no real rhythm, flow, layers of meaning, crazy beautiful way of communicating, nothing. It's just Instagram Lite poetry -- sparse words of how sad he is, and occasionally how mad he is (mostly at his parents), and occasionally how sad but hopeful he is and how the reader should hang in there. Sometimes he ends the poems with a hyphen and then a sort of a title or summary (?) in a different font. An example of one poem: Quiet moments, when words are worlds away when not a sound is being made but so very much is being said -- I live for those. --eye contact I will have to keep looking for some new poetry collections to bring back my love of poetry. I read a temporary digital ARC of this book for the purpose of review.

    I am so thankful that I was able to read this poetry collection. When I decided to start reading this I was in a weird mood kind of down in life. But, this collection made me feel like other people feel this way too and that I wasn’t alone. I’m a domestic violence survivor and this book was definitely encouraging! Keep up the amazing work. I loved the section separations with the birds and the fact I felt super connected the entire time I was reading. It was very easy to read and the language us I am so thankful that I was able to read this poetry collection. When I decided to start reading this I was in a weird mood kind of down in life.

    'Sad Birds Still Sing' really contains my kind of poetry. Play with words, and tell a whole story with often but one sentence. Many of the poems are now written down in my journal, because I did want to remember them, and one or two I have already used in a roleplay setting because they perfectly worded the emotions of my character. I really loved this collection of poems, and hope to read many more of those. It is a given, I guess, that I now also follow @farawaypoetry at instagram.

    I really do have a thing for short, « Instagram sized”, spilled thoughts and this is just great. Pertinent thoughts on loss and love, going on and self love. Great great read!

    Beautiful story written from the heart. The writing was easy to understand and the writer transformed me into her world. I could feel the sadness as well as heartbreak and hope on every page. Everyone should care about this story. I can not recommend this book anymore!

    First I would like to thank Netgalley and Central Avenue Publishing for providing an e-ARC of this collection to me. That being said all thoughts and opinions are my own. I enjoyed Sad Birds Still Sing overall, however, I found it to be a collection that was a little superficial. This isn't a poetry collection that I am going to be praising and quoting ten years from now unfortunately. Part of it was the poetry style.

That being said all thoughts and opinions are my own. I enjoyed Sad Birds Still Sing overall, however, I found it to be a collection that was a little superficial. This isn't a poetry collection that I am going to be praising and quoting ten years from now unfortunately. Part of it was the poetry style. I usually like to have a little more "meat" to my poetry and most of these were quite short. The biggest factor by far though has to be the formatting of the Kindle version. It needs help. I understand that ARCs sometimes don't have the most perfect formatting, but the way it was laid out here was distracting and had me wondering where poems ended and began at first. I wasn't familiar with this authors style before this collection so I was wondering if it was all one big run on poem or not at first. However, once I got familiar with the formatting I enjoyed it quite a bit more. It's a quick read, with a few poems that really hit hard. The collection discusses relationships, depression, and to an extent fate. One of my favorite passages was: If the stars are not aligned, I've always found it best to tug them into place. - why wait? However, I think the better poems of the collection are the ones that discuss depression and how we as humans deal with it. Emotional numbness is not a cure for unhappiness; sedation is not peace for those who panic. We are a different type, we who've lost our way: our brains are not broken; it is our souls that need renovation. - broken souls and broken systems If you like quick poems, you'll probably like this collection. I would say pick up a hard copy though if you can.

    I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review. All quotes here are from a published copy of the book. This review and more can be found on my blog: https://megansreviewingjourney.tumblr... I liked Sad Birds Still Sing, especially the more descriptive pieces. In many of Faraway’s poetry, there’s an interesting play on words. He also utilizes alliteration and rhymes often. I enjoy the subject matter he covered, from mental illness to heartbreak to abuse. I found a lot of the poems relatable. I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I enjoy the subject matter he covered, from mental illness to heartbreak to abuse. I found a lot of the poems relatable. Even poems I didn’t like had elements to appreciate, such as rhyme scheme or interesting vocabulary. A poem I especially liked: “I owe my life to close calls, the way all of the knives in my back have missed my heart by centimeters.” Though I mentioned Faraway often uses strong words, some poems do contain simplistic language that don’t properly express the strong concepts of the poems. There’s also the occasional filter word and a few similar poems. An example of a poem I disliked: “If only we had met later in life. Maybe then, now, we would have been mature enough for feelings as real and deep as ours were.” None of the language is strong or concrete in this poem, even though the concept is interesting and the rhymes and near rhymes are nice. Despite the above criticism, overall I enjoyed Sad Birds Still Sing.

    "Sad Birds Still Sing" by the anonymous Instagram poet Faraway (@farawaypoetry), was an inspiring collection of poetry that speaks to me going through a recent breakup. There was so much hope and promise. Many, many lines were filled with life to try again, to never give up, to sing amidst the sadness you might find yourself in. While he speaks at lengths of feelings and love and pain, he also combats those emotions with reality. He speaks to the reality that we still have a sense of control ove "Sad Birds Still Sing" by the anonymous Instagram poet Faraway (@farawaypoetry), was an inspiring collection of poetry that speaks to me going through a recent breakup.

While he speaks at lengths of feelings and love and pain, he also combats those emotions with reality. He speaks to the reality that we still have a sense of control over our future to make decisions and choices even when life gets hard. It is a mix of both the heart, the head, and the will that make up each person's life. I loved this collection. I think it will be one I will return to again and again in the different seasons of life. I received this as an eBook from Central Avenue Publishing via NetGalley in exchange for an honest and unbiased review of the title. I did not receive any compensation from either company. The opinions expressed herein are completely my own.

    Beautiful. A collection of poetry that tugs, wanders, and even comforts. Faraway is unafraid of the short simple poetry, Faraway dwells in minimalist depth. A short read for sure, but I wouldn’t recommend moving though these pages without pause between the breathes of the thoughts that Faraway has laid out. Inner struggles are not guarded these poems; Faraway explores desperation, loss, remembrance, hope, acceptance all in between these sheets; I cannot think of a better title for this collectio Beautiful.

Inner struggles are not guarded these poems; Faraway explores desperation, loss, remembrance, hope, acceptance all in between these sheets; I cannot think of a better title for this collection as he narrates the connection between despair, acceptance, & hope. I highlighted a significant number of the these poems as they were often moving in unexpected ways. His writing style is sometimes direct, but often clever in silent ways. This was my first glimpse into Faraway and I want more. Thank you Faraway for putting this into the thoughts of others, it is unlikely that you alone are move into the process of healing though your writing.

    This is a wonderful book of poetry! Some are a couple of lines, some are a couple of pages, but all made me feel something. As soon as I finished the book, I found myself back at the beginning reading many of them over again. I must have this book in my hands to treasure, and what a wonderful gift to people you care about! It would make a lovely, Christmas, or Birthday gift.

    I write because I have things to say to people who will not listen. My second foray into poetry through advanced reader copies occurred when I decided to request Sad Birds Still Sing by Faraway, an anonymous poet. Having dealt with my fair share of darkness and depression over the years, I found myself relating to the subject matter much more than I predicted. The wording is dark and beautiful with an underlying feeling of hope just around the corner. I think I may be into poetry now.

    I’d never heard of this poet - even with their large following on Instagram. I only wish I had discovered them sooner as their work is absolutely stunning. Sad Birds Still Sing is written by anoyomous poet Faraway (@farawaypoetry). It covers topics ranging from mental illness to heartbreak to dreams and more. Underneath it all - this book inspires hope and healing and facing things head on. I’m interested to check out other works by this author as they have some serious talent with words.

    This collection of poems had a few gems woven within, but the overall rhythm of the collection felt jumbled for me. I don’t know if it was a formatting issue in the kindle edition or the order the poems were placed in, but I just couldn’t connect with the collection as a whole. Overall I wasn’t thoroughly impressed or disappointed. A so-so collection in my opinion.

    *Thank you to the author and Netgalley for giving me an ARC in exchange for an honest review* Prior to starting this book, I wasn't familiar with Faraway or his poetry, but I'm glad I came across it on Netgalley. It's definitely one of the better collections of poetry I've read. It wasn't anything new or special but, for what it was, it was a solid collection and it does make me want to read more of his work.

    This book got me feeling all the feels. This book was written so honestly by the author. While reading this book, you really got the feeling that the author really honestly wrote her feelings down and it’s amazing to read such books. I bookmarked a lot of the poems and loved most of them so deeply.
