    I am not a poetry hater. I love the work of amazing poets/writers; people full of talent, inspiration, major purposes and so on. Among those I mention, I could easily include Nayyirah Waheed and her work Salt, or Alberto Ramos and his amazing work eighteen. I could even include the charismatic Rupi Kaur and both of her works, Milk and Honey and The Sun and Her Flowers which, although they may be at times too simplistic, have a worth considering message underneath and a beautiful design.

I could even include the charismatic Rupi Kaur and both of her works, Milk and Honey and The Sun and Her Flowers which, although they may be at times too simplistic, have a worth considering message underneath and a beautiful design. This author, nevertheless, leaves me speechless in the worst of ways (ironic because I am writing in this review more letters than most of his books contain). I literally feel like he throws some inmature, random and EXTREMELY clichéd thoughts in his books, with no special style nor theme, with no artistic features nor any type of talent. All I could see while reading his words was his macho attitude claiming to know everything about women and being the best guy a woman could ever had. Simply pathetic. And I get why people buy it: he makes so many books with such little pages (even 50) and then prices them so "low" (not low considering the book characteristics, even expensive) and fools his instagram followers into believing he is selling an art piece for a super low price, and when people express their opinions on his comments sections he straightforward deletes it and even blocks you. And I am of course not talking about insulting him nor his work on his account, but rather asking a question literally like "i'd like to see you writing books with more themes than love, i'd be nice" LITERALLY he has deleted comments of the kind. I bet he spends way more time fooling the Instagram community and misguiding them to fill his pockets than actually crafting his books. Not to even talk about what's within the actual book which I refuse to call poetry: "run away from any guy who claims to love you while treating you like shit" (enter space x5) Wow. Lorca who dis. All in all, save your precious time and money on scammers like this and if you are trying to find some good poetry, check out the amazing book eighteen combined with stunning illustrations made by the author Alberto Ramos who is just 18, or Nayyirah's work too, which is so deep and beautiful although more simple than eighteen; if you liked this r h Sin book, you'll fall in love with the authors I mentioned and on my humble opinion, will discover the genuine essence of contemporary poetry, and if you disliked Sin's books, you may even love the ones I said more. That was hella long. But hey, hope it helps you. I wish someone had said this to me a little while ago.

    I’m torn on this one. I really enjoyed the first half of this collection, by Robert M. Drake. I was foreseeing a 5-star rating, as it was original and inspiring. However, when I reached the second half, by r.h. Sin, that feeling quickly changed. It wasn’t bad, but it just felt like more of the same repetitive poetry I often read and just did not connect with most of it.

    how could you think you are weak when every time you break, you come back stronger than before? - Robert M. Drake mediocre. Robert M. Drake's half was way better. r.h Sin's half actually disappointed me. I am a fan of his work so I was surprised by this. Nothing really moved me in his half, I heard it all before tbh.

    It always takes me a few days to collect my thoughts about RH Sin novels. Usually his poems are about heartbreak and missing someone but this time it was different. His part of the book was about how no one deserves your love unless it’s earned and not to fall for people who don’t feel the same way. It was very refreshing to hear all his words. The other co-writer in this book was also very good and now I have to look him up because I need more. This book. I have no words.

    Since poetry is so dependent on the author’s voice, a collaboration in a poetry collection is an unusual idea. But, in Empty Bottles Full of Stories, Robert M. Drake and r.h Sin, both poets with huge social media followings, manage to work their distinctive styles into one volume. By dividing the book into two discrete parts, each with its own font, rhythm, and message, the poets work around shared themes but still deliver on their own trademark mannerisms. The first part of the volume, titled “T Since poetry is so dependent on the author’s voice, a collaboration in a poetry collection is an unusual idea. But, in Empty Bottles Full of Stories, Robert M. Drake and r.h Sin, both poets with huge social media followings, manage to work their distinctive styles into one volume. By dividing the book into two discrete parts, each with its own font, rhythm, and message, the poets work around shared themes but still deliver on their own trademark mannerisms. The first part of the volume, titled “The Curse,” is by Drake. This initial section is set in the typewriter-style font familiar to readers of Drake’s poems. I have read one of his more popular collections, Beautiful Chaos, and the themes and style seem fairly similar to those present in Empty Bottles Full of Stories. The arrangement of Drake’s poems is at times a little erratic in this volume: most center on topics of love, loss, the difficulty of connection, and the effervescent passions that define humanity, with two or three political poems tossed in. I would not have minded these latter poems so much, if they did not appear random in placement and interrupt the flow a bit. Overall, I do not know that this is Drake’s best work, based on my limited experience. Some poems were strong and moving, while others sounded like they could have been printed on the “Hey, Girl” Ryan Gosling meme. Sometimes Drake hit upon deep, meaningful notes, and at other times the affirmation came off as a bit forced and cheap. Still, there were likable portions within his section. The volume’s second portion, written by Sin, is called “The Gift.” With this second section, the type changes back to a more standard font, like readers would be familiar with in Sin’s other works. I found this second half of the volume to be much more powerful in style and tone than the first half. This was my first experience with Sin’s poetry, and overall, it was a positive one. Focusing on inner strength, failed relationships, and the need to love people who love you back, Sin’s themes seem to revolve around many of the same concepts that Drake’s did in the first half, but Sin feels a bit more grounded, more focused on the visceral emotions and poignant feelings that real relationships involve, and less concerned with the transience of the spirit. I liked that his poems were written to both men and women, with compassion and empowerment for both. Particularly in the ones to women, there is a lot of exhortation toward strength and self-sufficiency. In relation to the first half of the book, I was expecting these poems to be slightly more uplifting, carrying the reader through a downward and then upward cycle, as their respective subtitles would indicate. In reality, there was not as much of an upswing as I expected, and which would have given the book a more cohesive message. But, Sin does bring the tone back up at the very end. One point that does concern me, not just about this volume but rather about a lot of modern poetry in general, is the emphasis on leaving people who are undeserving of your love. I appreciate the desire for self-sufficiency, and I do not think that people should have to accept abuse, infidelity, or neglect. But, at some point, I also firmly believe that the opportunity for forgiveness should be weighed seriously. Or, if reconciliation with the partner of a failed relationship is not possible, at the very least, remaining in touch with others should be prioritized, over the need to love oneself first and to be enough, alone. There is so much talk in the world about how we as people are better and stronger together; but, at the same time, there is also a lot of rhetoric that encourages separation and isolation. It would seem that at least considering the convergence of these two themes would be valuable, even healing. Enduring abuse is not a good alternative, but neither is shutting oneself off from the communal support and love of others. I understand that this is a sensitive subject, especially as more and more domestic violence and intimate partner abuse has come to light. Please hear me, as someone who herself has been the recipient of emotional abuse from a loved and trusted person, as trying to balance compassion with reconciliation. There is a strength in standing alone, but I have come to learn that there is maybe a healthier version of power in learning not to let go of everything and everyone. My apologies for the long digression, but weighty themes call for serious responses. And, without a consideration of gravitational topics, poetry is just fluff. That is a categorization that Empty Bottles Full of Stories avoids. Although I see a part of its message as problematic if taken too far, at least the book does not shy away from important matters. {Review from https://witnessofthedawn.wordpress.co....

Drake has poems that cover a variety of topics such as his poem about the current state of the country (My country). He also discusses his sorrows and learning how to have self love. I appreciate when poems are feel personal, especially in today’s society. With that being said, R. H. Sin’s poems were good as well, but I did not enjoy them as much. Granted, I really did love the poems about learning how to love yourself and not putting others peoples selfish thoughts above yours. After awhile though, R. H. Sin’s poems started to feel a little repetitive. The repetition of the R. H. Sin’s poems is the only reason I’m giving this book 4 out of 5 stars. Other than that, I absolutely loved the book.

I am not sure I ever have set down with the intent to get through a whole book of poetry, and let alone one compelling me to read the next one, then the next one, and one more... This is a compelling collection of making things right for yourself, and others that feel they do not measure up to someone who does not deserve them. Powerful writing.

    Let me start off by saying this is the first time I've read Robert M Drake and I'm in love. His words are so relatable and relevant. I am certainly going to hunt more of his work down. I'm also pleasantly surprised by R.H Sin. I read two other very small books by him and I was a bit upset because there were like 100 words in the book total (probably a bit more but it didn't seem like it). These poems had more content and substance.

    I love poetry. I have a Master's Degree in poetry. Reading this was at times unbearable. This seemed like the tortured snippets I would write early in high school when I thought I was edgy and cool and tragic. I was not. This book suffers from the severe lack of imagery, especially in the first half. Poetry can be heavily driven by rhetoric as long as what is being said is fresh, impactful, and somewhat profound.

The works are far too whiny, uninspired, and are a waste of anyone's time and money.

    I have never read any poetry by these authors, but I will say I very much enjoyed and connected with the first half, which was written by Drake. The second half not so much. I felt disconnected from Sin’s writing, as well as in the formatting. It didn’t feel like each half belonged together. If this was a book with just Drakes poetry, this would be a 5 star read for me. But because they’re mashed together, I sadly give it a 3.

    I went back and forth with my enjoyment for this collection. Some poems felt entirely too real, and close to home. I was nearing tears, I was feeling completely mesmerized by the text. But, as I continued reading, those poems were few and far between. It felt more like an ode to a lost lover than it did a diverse piece of literature. There were a lot of bitter feelings from the author, and they didn't resonate with me. Some of course did, but not these. Too pessimistic for me.

    There were a few poems in here that felt kind of judgey in a not cool way (not that judging is ever cool but especially uncool in this was: a way that calls out people for behaviors that are probably just symptoms, not character flaws). Aside from that, a lot of the poems did leave me feeling empowered. A lot struck a chord. So, overall, solid book of poetry.

    Great collections of poems! I recommend this to anyone who has self insecurity problems like myself. I picked this poem book up randomly at my local book store and felt my heart drop when I read one of the poems hidden inside. This book can be read within one setting or enjoyed over a period of time.

    Poetry has always spoken to me. Deeply spoken to me. This did exactly that. Reading things like this coincidentally when you needed to makes them so much more powerful, and that is exactly what happened.

    This is genuine Millennial poetry and you have to appreciate it! Robert M Drake's poetry was very worldly and relatable r. h. Sin's poetry was very personal and repetitive and I didn't enjoy it but overall the work spoke for the time that we are in.

    Lorraine Walker

    The repetitiveness that seems to be the problem people are having with the r.h. Sin section is exactly what I think makes it good. What is being said in the poems is emphasised by the repetitiveness, backs and forths, ups and downs... If you don't get it, it's not necessarily a bad thing.

    The Earls List

    Started okay, but this is not the poetry collection for those looking to be moved. I found the general theme of these poems to be needy and chalk full of jealous resentment. Frankly whiny and even with the prose being up to the danish par the subject matter left much to be desired.

    Courtney

    A 2 is probably being generous because I’ve admired these poets and anticipated this book since they announced they’d be collaborating. If I’m being honest though, this book is extremely repetitive of not only their previous books but even from page to page of this one. Underwhelming at best.

    This was pretty painful to get through. I had high hopes but it ended up being frustrating. It all seemed like it was trying too hard to be profound and it repeated the same metaphors again and again.

    I read portions of this book outloud to myself, and it sounded so much more beautiful and powerful echoing off the walls. This is a great read for anyone who is trying to find the light within themselves- for anyone who is trying to put their broken pieces back together.
