Summary: A Suffering Soul is the first volume in the Dark Love Poems series of short poetry books written by Darren Heart. Containing a collection of poems by the author that, not only investigates the lighter side of love, but also dares to delve deeper, taking the reader on a journey into the darker aspects of love, such as indecision, rejection, fear, betrayal, loss and finally death.

Inspired by his own love story, and subsequent bereavement, the author writes emotionally, and from the heart, often resulting in poems that bring a tear to the eye.

My thoughts

I enjoyed this book of poems.  Some were sweet, some were sad - all of them make you think.  Knowing that these were written about events that happened in his real life made the poetry mean more, the emotions stand out more.  My favorite of the set was Ode to a Player.
