I downloaded this beautiful collection of love poems a while ago and have been reading and re-reading many of them. I love Nonnie Jules rhythmic and often rhyming style of putting thoughts together in a most satisfying way. I was also happy to read some of Gianni Jordan’s work.
This is a book of poetry for and about forbidden love. These poems are sexy, sensuous and hot, but most of all, they are poems of love… and the feelings they arouse in you are unbelievable! They “feel” like love songs and you will “feel” like singing, but they are only spoken words coming from your mouth, without music. If you aren’t in love before you begin reading this book, you will go seeking a love afterwards.

I DON’T KNOW, I’VE NEVER BEEN – wonderful lines, written in a rhyme-poetic style which I love very much: “I’ve never cared that someone loved me with all their might But I do know that I can love you, until my day fades to night.” Also, WE KNOW – such great romantic stuff! THE REALITY – is again completely different – a truly forbidden love for those who fall in love with someone who belongs to another and again Nonnie Jules says it so well: “Needing him so close Yet knowing he’s far away Makes it hard to see the sunshine On a bright, sunshiny day.” Space will fail me here, but there is BETRAYED, IF YOU SHOULD EVER … the list goes on.
The second part of this book is written by Giani Jordan – “Through HIS eyes” in LOVING YOU writes about “Love, you Take away the breath I need to Sustain me And give so much more; Fire in my heart, Peace Within my soul Found only Loving You.” Reminiscent of Captain Frederick Wentworth’s words to his beloved Anne Elliot – reminding me of what true love is all about. Poetry expressed can convey deep running feelings so perfectly. Other highlights are: THE WONDER OF YOU LOVING HER ACROSS THE MILES. I felt that the “COLORS OF THINGS” is especially worth mentioning as he writes about a lost love, “Silently He reaches out Embracing a memory A phantom That has fled His dreams Colored by green, Grey, brown, blue and red.” And “MUSIC IN MY SOUL”.
I do believe that some of these lyrical poems written by both authors need someone who appreciates their rhythm, prose and thoughts, taking each poem to even a greater height by adding a composer’s musical score.
Nonnie Jules is a mom, a wife, an author and also President of Rave Reviews Book Club. Her passion is children and her advocacy lies in supporting others and encouraging others to do the same. She has authored other fine books such as: “The Good Mommies’ Guide to Raising (Almost) Perfect Daughters,” “DAYDREAM’S DAUGHTER, NIGHTMARE’S FRIEND (A Novel),” and “Sugarcoatin’ Is For Candy & Pacifyin’ Is For Kids!”
