"There will always be those who say you are too young and delicate to make anything happen for yourself. They don't see the part of you that smolders.Don't let their doubting drown out the sound of your own heartbeat.You are the first drop of rain in a hurricane." Ilovedthis book.It spoke to me on a personal level.Mouthful of Forevers is about delicate girls who look soft, but are hurricanes instead.It's about finding the power in your femininity and being proud of softness."You are needed by al [...]
I'm not sure if there are any words I can try to string together to tell you how beautiful this book full of art truly is. I cannot compose any amount of thanks for these words that have mended many of my broken pieces. I collapsed into every one of these poems, and relished in the healing power. These poems are real, very vast in content and will have a profound effect on you. This is easily one of the best book of poems I've ever bought.Clementine von Radics - Mouthful of ForeversBlog | Twitte [...]
I've been crying for 10 minutes if that tells you how good this collection was.I picked this up as an ebook a couple of weeks ago but then completely forgot about it and when I returned to it tonight, I reread the entire thing in one sitting and was just bawling throughout it. Other than the fact that this book has gorgeous and creative prose that utilizes metaphor well, her poems are so unique. Most modern poetry collections are the same things over and over about "omg i loved a boy but he left [...]
This is probably my favorite collection of poems by Clementine--and that's saying something because I hold As Often As Miracles and Home very close to my heart.When it comes to describing poetrywell, it's not really my forte, so I typically make a list of my favorite poems, but I can't do that this time. See, the problem is that if I made a list it would consist of somewhere around sixty poems. So instead I'm going to refer you to the quotes page for this book (it's on the right hand side of you [...]
I should not be comparing this to other poetry books, but I just can't help to compare this to what I've read in the past that's in the same genre, e.g. Lang Leav's. This is way better than Leav's work because there are a lot of good poems that included here and one of this is Mouthful of Forevers. This is an excerpt from the said poem:I am not the first person you loved.You are not the first person I looked atwith a mouthful of forevers. Wehave both known loss like the sharp edgesof a knife. We [...]
Mouthful of Forevers is titled after a poem that had blown up on tumblr and has apparently inspired wedding vows, songs, and paintingsUTHFUL OF FOREVERSI am not the first person you loved.You are not the first person I looked atwith a mouthful of forevers. Wehave both known loss like the sharp edgesof a knife. We have both lived with lipsmore scar tissue than skin. Our love cameunannounced in the middle of the night.Our love came when we’d given upon asking love to come. I thinkthat has to be [...]
This is a hard collection for me to rate. The poems that really were strong were fantastic, surprising, boldBut I felt that the majority of the book felt like first drafts. Cliches, ideas that seemed half-formed, tangents that didn't really lead anywhere.I would like to read more by this poet, because the glimpses of brilliance that I found underneath. I'm just a bit disappointed in the rushed quality of many of the poems as I think that with a bit more time and work they could have been somethi [...]
The title poem is spectacular. Worth the price of admission and I'm glad to have bought the book based on the tumblr-hype just to support a young poet. I hope Clementine von Radics continues to develop and I will look forward to reading her in about 10-15 years (god willin' and the creeks don't rise).
'The Story Behind LobstersIs that they weren’t considereda delicacy until the 19th century.Before that they were peasant food,most often served in prisons.The story behind diamondsis they were just rocks until 1938,when a marketing campaignforever linked them with love.The story behind artis that it is never a masterpieceuntil it has been bought and hungon the wall in someoneelse’s home.The story behind usis until I lost youI had no ideawhat you were worth'
2016 Reading Challenge:A book of poetry
"What no one ever talks aboutis how dangerous hope can be.Call it forgivenesswith teeth."~♥~"That’s the thing about heartbreak.It’s the smallest of worlds ending.Everyone goes around you smiling,like it’s nothing to close a door." ~♥~Another book full of emotions for those who love to feel!Another author that bleeds ink into pages and pages of life and everything in it. I loved the way Clementine von Radics put her experiences into this beautiful package of poems.It always feels a bit [...]
Visceral and guttural poetry. My favourite kind. Clementine taps into her heart and experiences in a way that makes me wish I knew her so I could love her sometimes and then other times makes me glad I don't know her so she can't hurt me. I only wish that the poems had been ordered in a way that made more sense - seemed a bit all over the place so there wasn't much of a flow when reading it in one sitting. Overall, I loved it and really recommend it. Her voice needs to be heard.
Easily one of my favorites, I must have read it at least fifty times since receiving it. Clementine's writing is artistic and raw, and deals with events too many of us in life have gone through or are currently going through, and by the end of it I'm always left feeling simultaneously exposed and completed. I look forward to more of their work and in the meantime will continue to read their currents again and again.
Before this collection, I've never heard of you, Clementine von Radics. I'm sorry, but when I picked up this book I first thought that was a sort-of-pretentious-a-little-over-the-top-sort-of-silly-name.But after reading this collection, I could not be more grateful I found you, Clementine von Radics. And now your name is a name I would search for, a name I would appreciate, a name I would know.
Before Reading (4/20/16): Birthday gift from one of my good friends irl. Also a stuffed aimal of pusheen eating a cookie. :3Review (12/18/16):It's been a long time since I read some modern day narrative poetry, and I enjoyed her stuff. Not my favorite in the genre, but still very poignant pieces.
read a mouthful of forevers because if you don't you're clearly missing out on a great deal of beautiful pain
One of the most gorgeous poetry collections I've ever read. The thing I loved the most was how much it resonated with my own soul! Definitely recommend :)
nothing but clichès.
Sometimes, the beauty of poems comes from listening to them as they're read aloud.To be honest, I usually prefer dark poetry. Poetry about war, anguish, bereavement, death and loss--anything that has darkness hovering over it. For some reason, I find poems about romance annoying and whiny(the only romance poems I've loved wholeheartedly are those written in form oflove letters from John Keats to Fanny Brawne).But thisis was phe I read the poems aloud(not weird at all), and many, many times I wan [...]
I loved this so much.On being a writerLook at us,smiling with all our teeth out.Suffering so bravely in the spotlight,spilling blood on the page.Behind the curtainsomeone is bleeding.There is dust on the floor.You can smell the mold.Apologies don't make good bandages.The good news is you survived. The bad news is you're hurt and no one can heal you but yourself. You just have to find a stiff drink and a clean needle before you bleed out. And then you get up. And start over.It is hard to be in lo [...]
I read this collection based on the title poem, which is simply OUTSTANDING, the kind of poem that startles you with its beauty and leaves a mark on your heart and makes you feel so in love, even if you're not in love.Enjoying poetry is a subjective matter, I didn't like the other poems in this book, they consisted mainly of overused ideas, I didn't like the thought process of them, and I especially didn't like the feeling I got from reading them (aside from a few special ones).I'll still follow [...]
phew this was one of the (really) good collections i read this year, would recommend
I did not expect such talent. A really good book!
A good female-centric book promoting women empowerment through poetry with hints on love and heartbreaks and embracing who you really are as well. My favorite piece is "Mouthful of Forevers". Here's an excerpt from the poem:“I know sometimesit’s still hard to let me see youin all your cracked perfection,but please know:Whether it’s the days you burnmore brilliant than the sunor the nights you collapse into my lap,your body broken into a thousand questions,you are the most beautiful thing I [...]
Read Mouthful of Forevers here.If able to find her performing, please look at that medium instead, because it is much better to listen to the author emphasize the parts that need to be emphasized, with the tone they were meant to be read in. (This was my favourite poem of hers: "For Teenage Girls", it is honestly inspiring.)This is the best of her works, her other books are quite good, but none have reached that pinnacle that leads me to adore the poems. LISTEN TO HER PERFORM "FOR TEENAGE GIRLS" [...]
2015 Reading Challenge - Read as many poetry books as you can.Mouthful of ForeversI have beenwaitingfor this book. I got an early copy via NetGalley (with much thanks) for advance reading. I was so happy. This book is the first full collection of poetry by the uber talented Clementine von Radics. Her words are raw, dripping with honesty and truth. And yet, they give you a strange form of comfort. The book is not just filled with love poems though. It has poems about family, about growing up, abo [...]
I did not even begin to grasp this. I was under the impression I was reading a letter to a man who had abused a woman. But there was a woman thrown into the mix that became a lover and then a father that was oddly described as the abusive ex boyfriend. But the ex was dying.I'm so confused.
I have been following Clementine's tumblr for more than two years now and while I found few of her poems to be a force to be reckoned with, the rest felt like a watered down version of what I know von Radics' style to be. Regardless, I enjoyed this little book. A little over 3 stars.
