The warm soul of a poet

Ms. Bianca aka Rainbow Salt this is a beautiful poetic journey through life. I held on to every word as each one embraced my heart and mind. Your voice has a soft vulnerability and this book was deeply thought provoking. I hope you narrate more audio books. Bravo to you.

Life changing honesty. Perfection.

its brutally honest words that came together so bitter sweet and beautifully accurate. Her analogies were gorgeously spoken, written, and formed together to make a perfect book about many of the feelings people struggle with. My wife and I pressed play and regardless how tired and late it was, we didn't stop until it ended.

Charming

What does Bianca Sparacino bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I first found Bianca Sparacino reading a poem on video via Thought Catalog. This is the first audiobook I’ve heard and/or purchased. I took a chance on the narration instead of physically reading a book because the poet’s video displayed a pleasing voice. I do not think a review would do justice without quotations from her poetry. Here are a few:

“I am willing to trust”

“You were made to endure”

“But rather, we love because we have someone’s else blood within our veins.”

“Do not hide your wounds.”

“I’m writing this to say I’m sorry. I’m poison the I love, so this is my confession.”

“May you dip your wings in ink so that your words fall from the sky…”

“Promise me you won’t run back to what cracked you…”

“Take your life back from any negativity within it.”

“Let that girl know she inspires you.”

Each of Bianca’s poems arrives in this book as life reminders; the most truthful and questionable thoughts we all have within us, deep in the brain and/or heart. Furthermore, Bianca encourages us to have patience in life and
“wait for it.” Whatever you truly feel you deserve, “wait for it.”

(On a side note, when Bianca exclaims “my God,” it is quite charming.)

Lastly, this poet leaves us to

“focus on the beauty,”

and turn love into an openness for a soulmate “that does exist.”
