This school year has finally ended and I finally finished a book!
Indigo by F.D. Soul
- Genre: Poetry
- Pages: 170
- Published: February 2017
- Average Goodreads Rating: 4.38 out of five
- Book rating: 4 out of 5
- Cover rating: 4 out of 5 (minimalistic and chic)
- Plot: F. D. Soul’s first collection of poetry and prose. Written for those who have ever wondered what a heart looks like outside of the human body. This book is a breath. it’s that plunge into fear as your heart stops as if perhaps it won’t remember how to catch the next beat (but always does). and it’s wincing. biting the pillow. laughing even though you can hear your ribs cracking. this book is walking through a Weeping Willow with your fingers outstretched. lips brushed against a forehead. sticking your head out the window just to feel the day in your hair. tears drying against the soft skin beneath your chin. this book is how I save myself.
This year I finally got into poetry with “The Princess Saves Herself in this One” and now I’m reading similar poetry books. I actually discovered this book via F. D. Soul’s instagram where she posts some of her poems (you can find her here)
This book is divided in three sections: “Skin of Brick & a Breaking Heart”, “The Mending of Veins” and “Bare Feet & Universe Breathing”; and has 55 poems. It deals with some episodes of her life with a develment through the sections.
I really enjoyed reading this book (even if it’s so short I finished it in half an hour *sigh*), although I actually didn’t relate to all the poems (probably beacuse I’m still pretty young), but with the one I related to I felt I really strong connection.
Her poems are raw, genuine and deep. I feel like she wrote everything without filters and like she poured herself into every poem she has written and I love this thing! Also, I think her book is really inspiring for those who like to write poetry and there are a lot of original metaphors.
I hope she will publish another book with her poetry since on her account I’ve found some poems that aren’t in the book.

I write because it hurts.
because I need it to hurt.
because it hurts in the
most beautiful way possible
(because it hurts like you)
Close your eyes, darling;
your heart is showing
I will tell you this
again and again
you are enough.
you are so incredibly
I RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO…
Everyone who likes modern poetry!

I haven’t heard of this one before, but it looks like it could be a good read. And I like the minimalist cover!
I agree! Yes, it could be a really good read if you like poetry!
