    I love Jen Rogue. Love, love, love her. Her poetry is like the alternate reality I live in most of the time - Romanticizing sadness, finding beauty in brokenness, making poetry out of pain. Her poems make me want to crawl inside and live there, in this fictional land of feeling. I especially loved the organization of this poetry collection, featuring the stages of grief and the poems at the end for her readers' breakups. I feel like I've gotten to know friends better through their heartaches and I love Jen Rogue. Love, love, love her.

I feel like I've gotten to know friends better through their heartaches and bonded through the pain we all endure as humans. My favorite lines from this collection are: "I am only worth chasing when I am running away." "I imagine it got old pulling dust from your lungs every night." Favorite poem in this collection: "8 months after"

J.R. Rogue writes heartbreaking pain into beautiful poetry with Breakup Poems. This stunning new release is emotional, the poems had me reminiscing on past loves and riding the waves of emotion alongside her as she unraveled the heavy feelings. "I am only worth chasing when I am running away" Split into six chapters; denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance, and rebellion, Breakup Poems tackles the hard hurts, like cheating, first love, divorce, and tentative separation. The poems are relatable, each making me ache, but also making me feel like I've not been alone when I've felt drowned by the heartache with lines like “rewriting the end, that’s what women do." Some of the poems are softer, teardrops, while others are smashing fists, screaming words, and strength that one needs when recovering from a loss. "... forever can die slowly I can die slowly for you" J.R. Rogue admits she knows life, love, and loss well, her previous works prime examples of this, but Breakup Poems feels the most raw. I wanted to check on her after some of the poems, knowing only real experience could draw out words such as these. The words are presented in a lyrical way, with a really unique format that makes me think this book is best read in a paperback. J.R. Rogue has captured the stages of a breakup perfectly with Breakup Poems and I highly recommend it. It's the kind of poetry that sticks and stays, that will come to you when you need it most.

    Jen makes my heart pound without even trying. Poignant, stunning, and packing hard punches, Break Up Poems has all of the words us women need. Even her two lined poem brought out all of my feelings. This compilation of poems shook me when I least expected it.

    ACHE ACHE ACHE. This collection is titled appropriately. I love the format. I love the content. The art within the book as chapter breaks. Just an all around solid piece from JR Rogue. Her pain is palpable. I am aching. Love the poems she did for the other breakups at the end.

    Rogue continues to pull at all my emotions, this time with Breakup Poems. “I write you as a forest fire” Ugh. The feels. From her choice of words, to her rhythm, to her sucker punch endings, Rogue really k ones how to make you hurt in all the best ways.

    Poetry intimidates the mess out of me because while reading it, I start to feel as if it means something I can't quite figure out. In the case of J R Rogue's poems, though, I connect with them so viscerally that I don't care if she's talking about something other than what I'm feeling. The title tells you the theme of this collection, and Rogue wastes no time in thrusting you into the pain of a breakup. There are so many lines that dug into me that it's difficult to pick my favorites.

The title tells you the theme of this collection, and Rogue wastes no time in thrusting you into the pain of a breakup. There are so many lines that dug into me that it's difficult to pick my favorites. But here are a few that give you an idea of the pain and, yes, healing J R Rogue crafts. In "The Unkindness of You," she writes, "I have a hard time remembering you are past tense, / even though we sleep / in the same bed - your ghost and I." Who hasn't felt that way after the end of a relationship? In "The Bind that Ties Us" (I love that title), these lines felt like a sucker punch: "I had a dream about you last night / your face was not / your face, / and she / was there." He's gone, he's no longer the man who loved you, and you have been replaced. Such beautiful torture. And then, in "Where We Hide our Wild Things," comes this: "I can only love a man with half a plan to leave me." YES. I see you and I feel you, J R Rogue. Read these poems, if for no other reason than to realize that someone knows how you felt when your heart was broken. I've been (reasonably) happily married for twenty-five years, and these poems still resound with the way they speak to the hurt that comes of a ruptured relationship and its beautiful, feral agony.

    Another poetic homerun for J.R. Rogue. Another five-star read. I recognized some of the titles as writing prompts which was awesome to see. As always, the writing is unmatched by most contemporaries. Rogue reaches new heights with aesthetic (that COVER! Those interior images!), cohesiveness, and branding. Love that it was set against the stages of grief. I got excited when I saw this is noted as "volume 1." That means there's more to come and I cannot wait.

    It was torture In the best way I've always loved J. R.'s words, but this collection makes you feel every ache and twinge along the way. I'd been looking forward to this for a long time and it fully lived up to my hopes.

    JRR's writing is always amazing. There isn't enough praise I can give that will give her justice. Her writing always has the right words to say and she always says what you need to hear. She is incredibly talented and I always look forward to her writing, whether it is in poetry or as a novel.

    Like all of Jen's work, Breakup Poems packs a punch. This time right to the breaking heart after breaking up. She covers every emotion I think we all go through when losing something precious to us. And when you read some, it's just not losing a significant other, it could be losing yourself. Some will hit home, some will cause you to hurt for others but all will make you pause, take a deep breath and realize she's talking to all of us at some point.

    “wonder if I will feel it when he lets go” Rogue is one of those writers who has words for the things you feel but can’t decipher. She’s the reason I read poetry. It takes a lot of gall to share heartbreak with strangers, and I’m glad she has the strength to do it. Her work opens doors, invites truth inside, and even stays for the healing. Read her words. You won’t be sorry.

    Once I started, I couldn’t stop reading this. Jen stuns with her words. She draws you in and doesn’t let go, not even at the end. This book is divided into six sections: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance, and rebellion (the dedication section). Of the six, I felt the words in “Depression” the most. Every word speaks it as though the author knows it well, knows it best. In “I Don’t Cry,” she says, “I am only worth chasing when I am running away.” Isn’t this the truth? But “Acceptan Once I started, I couldn’t stop reading this. Jen stuns with her words. She draws you in and doesn’t let go, not even at the end.

But “Acceptance” and “Rebellion” had my favorite lines: “I can only love a man with half a plan to leave me” (from “Where We Hide Our Wild Things”) and “rewriting the end, that’s what women do” (from “Rewriting the End”). Each section has strong poems. And she balances the sections well. The “mic drops” are interspersed between the gentler pieces. There is soft and hard throughout. She also changes up the formatting. Some poems have long lines of thoughts, while others have one or two words. Both show breakups equally well. I always love reading Jen’s poetry, and this collection is no exception. There is a rawness to it, a tortured pain. An agony. It is beautiful and soulful and a must read.

    These poems are eye opening, soul searching lyrics written with so much love, heartache and tears that you instantly fall in love with them. Each poem was different and unique. I didn’t know what to expect. Some made me cry while others made me teary eyed. My eyes so blurry with emotion that I didn’t know if I could continue on. I’m so glad I did. I will go back often to read this. I don’t know what it is about J.R. Rogue but I can’t stop reading her words. They speak to me in ways others don’t.

    I devoured Breakup Poems in one sitting..... Something about Rogue's words inspires in me frenzied need to read faster and faster, as if the next page will disappear before I get there. J.R. Rogue has perfectly captured the stages of the heart and mind before, during, and after a breakup. I will reread this collection at a slower pace once my heart recovers.

    Good writers give you love songs. Brave writers give you the breakup poems. In her newest collection of poetry, “Breakup Poems”, J.R. Rogue takes us along the aching, slow-burning process of transitioning from “we are” to “we were”, from “us” back to “me”. And she does it without mincing words, which makes it all the more tactful & impactful. The opening chapter (Denial) is a salvo equivalent to calling your old beloved “Baby”, out of the habit of your heart, and regretting it immediately. W Good writers give you love songs. Brave writers give you the breakup poems. In her newest collection of poetry, “Breakup Poems”, J.R. Rogue takes us along the aching, slow-burning process of transitioning from “we are” to “we were”, from “us” back to “me”. And she does it without mincing words, which makes it all the more tactful & impactful. The opening chapter (Denial) is a salvo equivalent to calling your old beloved “Baby”, out of the habit of your heart, and regretting it immediately. We two have entwined so tightly that the scalpel will do damage when it wedges between us—you'll get cut by the convex and I’ll be shredded by the concave. Rogue’s initial chapter begs us to explore the inevitable sense of ownership that creeps into so many relationships. Is this your pattern or mine? Prolly both. Pieces such as “Count Your Eyelashes” & “Ebony Easy” describe the regret, the remorse and the sense of exasperation of exhausting heartbreak. However, there is no wallowing here...there’s a strange sense of empowerment involved. Like getting knocked down, that split second when you are on the ground and take stock to see if you’ve got enough to get up again and give love and life another go... There are no quick or quaint lines in this compilation. It’s too hearty to take in all at once and really seize the dimension of Rogue’s writing. There are too many “hmm's" and “a-ha’s” in this collection to allow for a straight-away read through. More than once, this reviewer had to put his copy down when his own memories came flooding too close to the knuckle. +++ One of Rogue’s finest writing strengths is her ability to shift gears without ever grinding. She quickly moves into the Anger chapter, perhaps the most explosive and honestly, the most relatable. I hate it when you say her name. Stop saying her f*@king name. Ugh, it’s that feeling of black coal in the pit of your stomach, it kicks you into reaction: SAY HER NAME ONE MORE TIME AND I SWEAR TO GOD......... When your heart is truly broken, how does one- me, you, or anyone- ever truly get over it unchanged? Is there another only-true-love-of-your-life out there?? +++ It‘s hard to believe, that, yes, even in the Hyper-info Age, people still get their hearts broken, but in a sense, that’s what makes “Breakup Poems” a comfort to read: knowing that heartbreaks are not reserved exclusively for teenagers...it can, in reality, strike in any relationship, in your 30’s, 40’s, 50’s and can lead to breakups and even divorces. They say hearts are broken every day, but when it’s yours, it sure the hell doesn’t feel like every day. But read it when the times are good, too. Take it in hand every once in a while, just to remind you that your heart is the only organ in your body that is always on the chopping block. There’s actually something comforting in that. Saving your copy of “Breakup Poems” will add a bit of much needed comfort down the line. there’s nothing elegant about heartbreak, it’s a private shatter +++ I’ll leave you to discover all the rest of the wonders of “Breakup Poems” on your own, and there many. From the subtle yet striking artwork to the chapters I’ve yet to mention, I am certain this collection will resonate long after your first reading, and that is brave writing indeed. ~christian garduno 10|27|18 south texas

There's nothing I love more than when an author pours their everything into their writing and Rogue does that with every page. It's like she bled these words straight onto the paper for us to bare. I could feel her anger, her hurt, her love, her loss, her soul. I loved every. single. second. There are certain books/collections that I believe every woman should read, and this is one of them. I believe that any one that reads this will connect with the words and come out of it with something they needed to hear. I know I did, and I'm forever grateful. Sometimes books come into our lives when we need them most and man was this one of those for me.

    I don’t tend to read poetry often, I just haven’t read an author whose work speaks to me in that genre.... well this author, she speaks to my soul. She gets me. She writes reality- the raw, gritty, downright painful truth whether you are ready to hear it or not and that’s what’s great about her work.

To understand the workings of another’s pain, heartache and all the secrets in between that is an art in itself. But to be able to convey things from one’s pain and soul onto paper and have others relate to those words, that is a masterpiece. I am so grateful to have been given a chance to read this work, thank you so much. From the bottom of my heart and pained black soul.... thank you! Thank you for understanding things no one else can.

She strikes that perfect balance where a poem can be both the writer’s and the reader’s experience. I’ve always admired her writing for this very reason. Her words are a foundation for her and malleable clay to the rest of us, where we can see our own truths and heart breaks in them. This book has pushed me into my own reevaluations of former loves, and that’s quite the accomplishment, to be that drawn into something that it makes you proactively work internally for things you’ve been avoiding. It’s a brave, uncompromising collection by an artist that consistently places her exposed heart and mind on the page, and for that alone, this book belongs in your hands.

Making you think about your own life experiences. Being able to express her pain and heartache on paper and bare her soul to the world so openly is AMAZING in and of itself but to have others relate so closely to her words as if she had been right there in their own mind is EXCEPTIONAL!!! Thank you for allowing me to read this work of art in exchange for an honest review. My words do no justice to this beautiful piece or work.

Five stars for this beautiful collection written by one of my favorite poets.

Some poems are lighter then others and I feel like there is one in there for every reader. Jen’s words will stick with you long after you’ve finished the last page, and I look forward to reading her other collections soon.
