Book Title – Love vs Weed
Illustrative Poetry Collection on love and its shades
Disclaimer – The word “Weed” is a pure personification of a toxic that ruins our life. The term represents as poems and used as metaphor to describe the toxic life and disturbing moment which we all face. Our love, too, turns up into a toxic weed. The author does not promote any kind of substance; neither consume nor promote anyone to consume.
Do you love reading about love and relationships? Is there a poet, or a writer hidden in you? Or a person who believes in love and the healing power of love. If yes, this book is for you! Can love and weed go hand in hand or they will stand opposite to each other? Is it possible for lust to take over from Love or love will always have an upper hand over lust and weed? I answer all these questions in the book. They are as poems, short verses and quotes.
This book is a masterpiece where it shows you different love and also compares it with weed, which is usually a form of the drug (but it is just a personification of the word which the author has tried to put as this book). This book is not to promote weed or any form of the drug, it depicts just a simple personification of the author’s imagination to understand the expressions of love and weed. The author made a very nice attempt in bringing love close to weed as poetry.
Does love win, or weed is beating love, leaving love long behind standing close to lust? It seems like a mystery to solve, to know in real, one shall read this book for sure.
If you are looking for some poetic heart touching prose and verses which define or compare love with other forms, then this book will keep you hooked.
Sneak peek in the book:
Thou silver divinity of clandestine night,
Straight my footprints through the tree shade;
Thou sentient spectator of unknown delight,
The Lover’s godsend and the Muse unite!
Keep reading, stay happy!
Collection of illustrative poems & short stories
Author – Shivi Goyal
This little book on poetry and short stories is about our aspirations and dreams that do not match with our reality. The poems concentrate on tussles, sentiment of despair, particularly among women who get stuck in the hive of their own societal issues and hence not able to express. The words revolve around the free flow of poetry in the best possible raw form, as if coming straight from the reader’s heart. Such is the compilation of this book, “Words which are not Said.”
This Book Questions:
Is it a crime to be a woman?
Have you revealed, your unsaid yet?
Have you ever felt helpless or understated?
Do you feel to shout out loud about your genuine emotions?
This book is a mark shift in your minds for the words and things which we always want to express in our surroundings and cannot. We hold back ourselves for not saying what we want to. Words Unsaid… is a testimony of all those expressions and words that remain hidden, and we are always on a quest to release them to this universe, which eventually leads us to contentment of freedom. Poems like – Something worth living for, The moment I met him, Beating self-respect are the ones which resonate well with women, mental health and who have suffered the turmoil of depression. Yet, now, they are flying with all colors in the sky.
Lines from the book:
“That, Someone Is In Me
I’m letting it go
As someone whom I love
Is getting hurt
Is in me”

Shivi has always wanted to write, write, write, write and repeat. Passion for spreading what she has learnt and sharing to the world and to raise her voice of something which triggers the society about, kids, women, societal issues and more.Shivi’s life has been a roller coaster ride for all good and bad reasons. With due course of time, I realized I can’t pull it over, and started writing, that writing was a diary, journals, travel tales. But the thought to get my book published one day was always a dream, but could not see it happening. The trigger back then was to let and tap readers who must have or might have experienced trial and error in love and life. Sometimes a few expressions we could not express or say it to anyone. Thus I wrote this book. It is my life and stories of people around me who have influenced me to come with this book.

They were elated, but the most honest reaction which she got was from my daughter and my mom. Shivi’s community though, gave a quite good reaction, as they appreciated and offered honest reviews.She later was glad to know that they liked the style of writing and said we wish to read more from you.For Shivi if she can connect with her readers emotions, nothing like it.
Shivi belives that there are numerous ways in which books influence our lives. As per the reviews and speaker sessions and the readers who have read them — it is giving them an insight into how other people live, broaden our worldview, influence the thoughts on exploration, politics, world, nature, love, life, karma, destiny, and social issues.Shivi is glad that they feel connected with the situations occurring or must have occurred in their lives. Also the poems and verses do not let them feel alone

Shivi’s inspiration is her daughter who always motivate her to be high on heels. Apart from this her mother has been unconditionally with her in the journey.She is thankful to all these three people who have been a thorough support.Shivi’s whole literary and writing journey has been beautiful and inspiring. It is full of incidents as she ran short in her budget to hire too many professionals for her book. Hence almost everything was on herself and her friend. From editing to proofread and then allying her illustrations to the book poem was a task.
Currently Shivi is working on a few anthologies. Also her individual book venture is also set to release soon. It is a self-help book.Out of those she is planning to write on travel stories as well. Being a solo traveller Shivi would like people to read the unexplored.Her message for aspiring wirters is to start with writing short stories.Writing a short story is also much less intimidating than writing a novel, Shivi feels.For poets too, it will help to build the plot and the mood. If you feel undergrad then you can also look for writing clubs, poetry clubs in your vicinity. Do not trust your memory, write everything down. Keep a notebook always close to you. Also try to write something daily as this will refresh your mindfulness. I would also suggest that don/t be too hard on yourself, and try to seek help and support from others. ‘Keep going, as everything is in you, we just need to evolve’ says Shivi
