A collection of 35 love poems on Unconditional love, Longing, Romance, Fond reminisces and Separation.

The heart listens to no one. It hums its own song. This is primarily the reason why love and music are so much interrelated. When a person falls in love, his heart becomes an orchestra of emotions which churns out a beautiful song, audible only to the heart of his lover.

There are different kinds of love stories, but one thing is same in all of them. In every love story, there is a melody. It might be sweet or passionate. It can also be transcending or heart wrenching.

In this book, you will be able to taste 35 distinct flavors of love. Delve in the verses, catch a glimpse of the 35 love stories unfolding before you and hear the melody they produce.

The heart listens to no one because it is governed by love. Then, why try to control it? Let it produce its own melody. Let it hum its own song..

Me thinks

Having read Purba's previous works it didn't come as a surprise to me when she launched her collection of poems revolving around the theme of love. She has always presented that one emotion so beautifully in multiple ways across her writings. Like a true Gemini-an she knows the knack of saying I love you in a thousand ways without it sounding repetitive. 

35 poems ranging from love, longing, separation and fond memories warm your heart and remind you of someone you have always held close to your heart. These poems are very poignant and soul stirring. In a way the poetess has bared her heart and soul in her words. Some of them are so moving that they are bound to move you and leave you teary eyed. Her words have a certain innocence, one that you would tend to associate with love. And that is the beauty of this poetry collection. 

Though I loved each and every poem in this collection what I didn't like was the cover. It was too loud and complete opposite to the content inside which was soothing. Having said that it doesnt take away the beauty of her work. This poetry collection deserves not only to be read but also gifted to people whom you want to express your feelings but are wondering how to. This makes for an excellent read in every possible manner! Choosing a favourite from this gem of a collection would be unfair to the beauties this book holds within. For me each one is priceless and unique.

Strongly recommended for all poetry and romance lovers!
