I liked the happy, positive, and optimistic themes of the poems in Heartbeats in Ink by Denise Alicea. I also liked that the poems were easy to understand and not at all obscure. The poem called “Crush” truly depicts that heart-pounding, sweaty-palm feeling that comes when you are attracted to someone; this poem made me nostalgic. I also enjoyed “Sympathy,” which pointed out the importance of caring for others. My favorites were "I Will Believe" and "A Place at the Table." The latter calls for unity regardless of our differences in race, beliefs, etc. I truly think "I Will Believe" would make a great song; it is beautifully written. I immensely enjoyed reading Heartbeats in Ink; the poems offer a warm, fuzzy feeling that remains with you long after you’re finished reading.
