MoreHeart is a collection of poetry by David Wesley Anderson with visually metaphorical themes, centered around lust, love, and loss. Within 140 characters each, the micro poems range from nature symbolism to cosmic themes. Romantic angst is central to the anthology’s exploration of the human heart’s emotions with a recurring trope of finding balance between two opposites: sun and moon, fire and ice, and other imagery, most significantly, the poet and his muse.The pangs of the heart are quickly revealed in poems about far distances, wasted time, and the misfortune of happenstance that keeps two hearts apart. Less predictable language speaks frankly about the mistakes and regrets within a relationship as well, making circumstantial wonder resonate with the reader. The book thrives on metaphysical and abstract analogies to represent the hearts desire to recapture human emotions. These ongoing contrasts weave a story about two hearts that cannot refrain from being magnetically pulled together, much like some of the celestial metaphors that represent them in the poems.Each page contains an independently cohesive poem, neatly packaged together into a raw, page-turning journey through exotic feelings, profound connections, and debilitating heartbreak. More palpable to the reader is the seemingly addictive effect this rawness has on the vulnerable heart to continue seeking out love, completing the theme of balance by empowering both, a full heart and a heart carrying a void, with the same capacity for poetry.
