Description of the Book:

These poems are the impressions of every fleeing moment that is now gone, the feelings that can no longer be reincarnated. I wanted to capture every feeling in words without naming it overtly. Rather, I let the words make their way into the flow naturally. It was a great experience, and I hope that whoever reads these poems will find themselves immersed into another world and connect with whatever is going on deep inside them. A few of the poems are inspired by modern Ukrainian songs. I feel grateful to come from such a culturally rich heritage and a country full of talented and truly creative people. Some of my pieces go deeper than pure inspiration - there are the poems that speak about my own experience, my pain and my past that I managed to overcome within myself. I hope that it will resonate with anyone who felt similar and, at one point or another, felt overwhelmed by their trauma, but found a way out. There is a way out. Every poem comes from my heart - please enjoy. I hope there's something for you. With love, Olena
