In the Mirror by Melissa Darby
The work contained in Darby’s latest book of poetry is nothing short of intense. She allows the reader to peer into her heart and extends an invitation to share her pain, all with an intriguing use of analogy and symbolism. “I wait for the brush of your hand / To light the embers of my soul,” from Frost; and, “I watch the white lies / float / one by one,” a choice tidbit from What is Left of Me, are just two examples of Darby’s talent for metaphor. This book is not for the faint of heart. Darby pulls no punches. Her works are strong, soul-baring and completely and utterly extraordinary. Do not miss In the Mirror.
