    Remember the feelings of your first love? Of wanting to know what love felt like? That jumble of emotional turmoil inside, from the confusion to the fear of being left far too exposed? W.R. Watkins has shared those feelings with an eye on evoking some type of memory or emotion from everyone who reads his words without having to feel that ”he saw and read MY heart.” From the dreams of love to letting go, each verse will resonate with its own truth for W.R. Watkins’ life. With these words, he shares how every heart is actually very similar, it is part of being human.Again, reading poems brings out the beauty of each word in a purely simple way, getting as intricate as the reader wishes. Well done, well-written and completely engaging. A wonderful way to re-discover poetry. I highly recommendDiary of the Heart: An Obsessive Infatuation.I received this copy from the author in exchange for my honest review.Publication Date: December 1, 2014Publisher: W. R.

    I'm a bit conflicted on how to rate this, but i will settle on 3 stars (liked it).There were two poems I really liked, Fake and Fox Hunt. The rest weren't bad, but weren't anything spectacular for my taste. I do get that poetry is subjective, however the style of the poetry in this book, I did not particularly enjoy. What I liked overall: the theme. I could relate to some of the content and it was heartbreaking when I did. Chapter one and Chapter two were good, however I found chapter 3 and 4 (especially four) to be a bit lackluster. What I could do without: the repeated clichés, the same words recycled between a poem and another. Some poems felt that had already read them, they were not that unique. I also did not enjoy the fact that most of the poems ended with a one-liner which was a repeated line or the title... most times it did not add drama but rather killed the tone/mood. What I wish there was more of: less abstraction and more imagery. Fox Hunt was a great example. I want to feel what the author is feeling. The majority of times I could feel something it is because my experience could directly relate... when it did not, I simply did not feel. And I like to feel when I read poetry.

    Poetry is not something I read too often, but I'm very happy I took the time to read Watkins' poetry collection. When starting, I thought this was just another collection of love poems. How wrong was I? Very.Love being universal is important - as in all aspects of life - but Watkins' poems is a rollercoaster of emotions. Starting happily, the author falls darker and darker and into an abyss ('Abyss' being my favorite here). Then he gets out of it just to be slammed back down again.His style can seem confusing in the beginning, but soon you appreciate the refreshing feel of it and how it helps turning all the poems into one story.Watkins is at times so honest that it borderlines creepy, but it just shows how much effort and pain it's taken to compose these poems.The story is about self-revelation, and then sharing this revelation with the world (through betrayal) before this is then smacked into the face of the narrator. He accepts what has been thrown at him which leads to another revelation; that the life of the narrator is better thanks to all the 'crap' life has thrown at him.Two other outstanding poems was 'One smile' and 'What If...' which was in my opinion the turning point in the one story comprised of all the poems.FULL DISCLAIMER: I was given a copy of this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    I began Reading this book a night with a nice big cup of coffee and as I turned pages, I realized how beautiful everything in our life can be. It does not have huge words, no difficult concepts. All you can see is poetry in its exquisiteness and in its humble form.The first poem, ‘What is love’ and its following poem ‘I want to know what love is’ explain how love is a binding spell for all those who are hopeless and are in need of care and affection. We see the struggle of a human heart in ‘Somebody’ and ‘So much love to give’One of my favorite from so many was ‘What I can see’ and ‘The First Time’. It was a mirror to my heart, and I read those about three times.The title poem, ‘An Obsessive Infatuation’ is outstanding. No wonder Mr. Watkins decided to keep it the title. I feel that it is a pathway to the next two poems I liked, ‘Beautiful Dream’ and ‘Whisper in the Night’. I am a huge fan of Gothic poetry and ‘Hallucinations’ was like having a wonderful warm meal at the middle of the night in winters. Other poems that stand out are ‘Secrets of my heart’, ‘Closed Doors’, ‘Woodsman’ and ‘Closed Doors’.I am lucky to read such poetry and I will definitely give it another read. If there was a 6th star, I’d give 6 instead of 5!

    In Watkins' second book of poetry he takes us from longing for love to finding it. This book starts off in a depressed mood. The author is longing for someone to love. He looks and when he sees the one person that he believes can make him happy his heart soars. He doesn't tell them, yet lets his infatuation grow until he is ready to burst. Finally he takes a chance and tells them only to hear they don't care for him the same way, but they want to be friends. It hurts and tears at him. He took a risk, but was it worth it to have loved, let his love be known, and then find out it wasn't to be. This is a lot more depressing that his first book. The pain in this book both begins and ends it. Once again it is full of emotions that everyone can understand and say, "hey I've been there."I received a copy to facilitate my review. The opinions espressed here are my own.

    The author kindly sent me a free copy in exchange for an honest review.What is it about W.R Watkins' poetry that means as soon as you start reading, you can't put the book down until you're finished?!"Diary of the Heart: An Obsessive Infatuation" isn't as personal or, for me, as emotional as "You. Are. Not. Alone", but I still enjoyed every word.I'm looking forward to seeing more from this very talented poet.

    Disclaimer: While I aim to be unbiased, I received a copy of this for free to review.I’m not too sure how to feel about this one – the poetry was a little too traditional for my liking, and the book itself is effectively the chronicle of the author’s one-way love for a woman. Unfortunately, it comes across kind of whiny.

    I haven't had a book of poetry make me cry in a long time. This one did. I want to thank the author for asking me to read and review this beautiful work. This was such beautiful collection of art straight from the heart. Very moving.
