Until I Write a Beautiful Suicide Note by Gurinder Singh is a collection of poignantly beautiful poems. The diverse collection consists of poems on romantic and platonic love, heartbreak, nostalgia, longing, and more. And each poem has an entirely different tangent attached to it.

There is one on cold nights and the painful memories while another is on pleading God to ‘loan a song’ to express heartfelt emotions. Some poems praise women while others talk more about the man. There is something on tears and then there is more on grief.

I really loved reading a poetry collection that’s not big in length but also is vast as it embraces a variety of themes. This kept me interested throughout the book. While most of the poems are written in freestyle, all of them are in themselves a means to an end. The writing and narration are simple to engage any and every reader.

Some poems struck a chord with me. Some made my heart warm while a few left a little tear in the corner of my eye. These poems also go beyond love and life to talk about globally pressing issues such as religion and race too. I really liked the poems on those subjects for they spoke to a broader audience and would resonate with most people. I also loved the ones that talked about a human’s heart and the conflict between heart and mind.

One of my favourite pieces is:

Don’t you ever sit and cry
Over a long-lost fish
You will find another one
The lifelike ocean is so vast.
Whatever you have
Whenever you got
Don’t you waste any
Spend your time in its adore
When ghosts from the past
Come knocking on your door.

In a nutshell, this poetry collection provides an immersive reading experience. I’d recommend it to all who would love to drown in some poems of different tastes.
