In her book “Rasping Melodies” Painspirations of my Past,” Roeau Vetrano takes the reader on a journey, a gamut of human emotions, towards enlightenment leaving one on the footstep of what self-love looks like. Some poems feel like fables with the mythical creature, the scrappy narrator from “Wretched Throne,” among others, delivering the moral lessons. Roeau’s work is unapologetically revelatory, no filter, uncovering her thoughts and exposing her raw emotions. Each page reveals a fragmented narrator coming to terms with her emotions, pain, anger, lust, fear which for me was anxiety producing. Perhaps because the writing is too close, like internal monologues being shouted out at the world? She states in her poem “LGBT” “We ALL identify with one thought, one feeling; lost, uncertainty, never truly figuring it out” Her palpable works are a reminder of how much it can be a struggle to fit in, to be accepted and live by the limiting norms imposed on by society. She urges one to be primitive, as in unpretentious, and unaffected by the many cultural and societal messages that too often stifle our dreams and drown our passions converting us into “Ghosts” “Trapped in emotional, carnal limbo.” As the title suggest many of the poems in the collection are jarring, a batch of emotions colliding and conflicting with one another, the author reflects what many of us may be experiencing or have experienced at one point or another, feeling broken and in desperate need to be put together again. These pages capture the simple yet confusing and often painful reality of the human psyche. But within the cacophony there is hope and the encouragement in the owning of feelings. “When I have a scary hurtful or painful thing holding me back I study it so I can conquer it and become stronger.” Overall this is a motivating and inspiring read.
