Love’s Proclamation is a fictional love story written in poetry forming a novelette, consisting of 61 poems. Love’s Proclamation is about a young adult named Rureese who is a minor of morality. While excavating, he meets a beautiful woman named Noella. Rureese challenges the existence of man, and he feels the chains of morality. He loves her, but he feels he must follow his purpose.
Be not discouraged; fatalism is: impotence.
O how greatly we humans can pretend!
I was caught in the strings of barbarianism.
As I flew I saw heights and new thanksgivings.
How to unpack? How to digest? How not to forget?
The curation was exponentially growing!
And as the master of the plan, I felt it was necessary
To dig deeper, to inquire, to question, and then some.
My walls were covered in notes only I understood–
Everything was a trap and wonderful bliss.
Distortion was just an illusion, or so I believed.
Returning to earth, lacked my decision. Rureese!
Talk with me. Come back; I need you.
I felt her pain but pursued life’s praise.
I assumed she’d be happy if what I brought back
Were reasons to live more wholly.
Love’s Proclamation: A Contemporary Poetic Novelette by Michael A Paladino is a spirit lifting compilation of short poems that will warm your heart and enlighten your life. With language that is raw, beautiful and modern, the poems are rich, emotive, and touching. I found this short but powerful book very moving and beautifully written. Containing vivid poetry on the topic of love, with great insight that is profound, true, and so beautiful, Love’s Proclamation: A Contemporary Poetic Novelette offers readers a deep intuitive understanding of morality and love. I found myself also trying to differentiate between right and wrong as I traveled with Rureese and Noella as they navigated the emotions of love’s journey. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves poems, knows someone who loves poems, is in love, or has someone who loves them. It is one that I am so glad to have in my collection and will be read many times in the years to come. Each time I reread one of the poems I discover a new depth to it that I missed the time before.
