With me/ Otherwise
i told him every time you kiss me leave a word in my mouth conundrum. elison. stay. foofaraw. shoal. freyja. With me/ Otherwise is all about the intricate design of human relationships. The poems hold a reticent astonishment at facts that occur around the world and transcribe them into emotional entropy. The romance of emotional weight and the linear projections of them make up for the major theme. Often swinging with images, questions and compulsions, the poems halt with sudden references to observations, surrealism, rituals and desire.

It's not your usual kind of poetry book , you will have to compose your thoughts after finishing it.
You might feel that it is written by somebody who would be old and mature but the writer is pretty young. So the phrase "what's age got to do with experience" is true here.
Do not rush through the book , sit down with a coffee on a Sunday and finish it in one go.You will be taken back to your past or may be to your future. Some lines have a very deeper meaning and will leave a smile on your face once you understand them.
Overall a fresh entry into the world of literature and I would be waiting for other works by the writer.
you can only enrich memory'
-Nonpareil, Sheetal S.
her words give you the hangover that lingers in your mind after reading the book. with me/otherwise by S. a.k.a. Sheetal S is an amazing compilation of poems by the debut poet. It is indeed a page turner which you can complete over a cup of coffee and a cake as suggested by the poet. P.S. I wish I would have known, though. Sheetal is here to stay with her stunning poetry that gives you an incredible experience. And i know we shouldn't judge a book by its cover; the book fulfills the promise made by the cover. Waiting for another book from her!
It is now understood by you?
Can you relate to it?
Do you like it?
If "yes" to all the three then be happy
I had gone though all the poems and for an abnormal Psychology auditor like me the poems has passes the thought process hidden dimensions between relationship of 2/3 more people and their connections...
The entire book reminds me of poems drafted as an illusion art. Now you have to really interpret and imagine each lines to reach the poet's heart to understand the lines... has all poets don't follow pattern you will see a similar trend here too but you have to taste and imagine what you read to understand the creator behind it.
Up the sky she is falling asleep, Tear drops run down my cheeks, clouds you know her so well, tell my guardian angel, without her there is no peace. [Love at the College Gate - Carefree Vagabond]
Sheetal reminds me of EE Cummings who never followed syntax in his poetry. Similarly, Sheetal’s poetical scribbles are devoid of punctuations and capital letters. Technically speaking, it isn’t correct but when we look at this poetry genre, in this everything becomes correct. It is poet’s imagination, their thoughts and the way they look at things, we can’t see that perspective.
The writing style of the poet is lucrative. The use of transfer epithets, metaphors, alliterations, rhyme patterns makes it poignant. Some of the headings of the poems are taken from different language. The poems don’t follow any particular pattern. Some of them are in verse form, while some are lyrical. They are mainly irregular in nature.
COVER- The cover is elegant and very subtly beautiful. grabbing one's attention towards it. Simple yet interesting.
WOW FACTOR- The choice of words, figures of speech and connecting dots of the poem to one hitting last line.
MY THOUGHTS ON THE COLLECTION- It is a short yet powerful collection of poems,consisting of short and long poems. I really love how different aspects were put forth. It is a soft and warmthful collection of poetry. A very strong one! It is very close to me, being an avid reader of poetry.This book is a must for poetry readers.
FAVOURITE POEMS- most of them are my favourite!

FAVOURITE LINES- " you said you are busy, so i ate all the moons.

much wine and fatigue in my bones slow to respond so slow to respond.
THEMES- various themes love, self etc.
PAGE TURNER- Definitely yes! as the author says have it with cake and coffee,
perfect for the soul and soft evenings.
RELATABLE- those who aren't poetry lovers may face a little trouble and dictionary, but i am sure you would not want to miss on this collection!! GO FOR IT!
