The psychedelia of sadness – Elena Karra
My first poetry compilation, ‘The psychedelia of sadness’, is consisted of 60 confessional poems. Love, lust, death and a yearning nostalgia are the main themes of my poetry. Each poem is a unique part of myself and my story that I decided it is meant to be read by people like me, people who romanticize every second of their life, people who overdose dreams unapologetically and people who love the wrong ones like there’s no tomorrow…
People who turned our ‘I love you’ into ghosts inside our throat.
«Dark enough to consume you, dreamy enough to captivate you and raw enough to identify yourself with it»
«A book filled with heart-wrenching, but such beautiful poems that you’ll adore to the core»
«A captivating poetry book about desire, loss, melancholy and so much more… Addictive in the most beautiful way»
