Rating: ★★★.5


If you enjoy the idea of exploring a range of unique black and white art alongside poetry and prose, this is the book for you!

“Depersonalise” is MSJs debut contemporary collection which explores love, loss, and the feeling of not being present but rather merely watching life go by and realising in retrospection. The free form poetry found within the book touches upon struggles associated with mental health and life. Enjoy the beautiful illustrations which accompany every poem within.

Poetry from this collection will leave readers reminiscing about the past, in search of comfort in their memories. Don’t we all wish you could relive certain moments?

(This collection would be great for young adults who not only enjoy modern poetry, but also art)


This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you MSJ!

Depersonalise is MSJ’s first contemporary poetry collection and is about a few topics such as love and loss. Depersonalise is a short poetry collection with illustrations.

Depersonalise is the first poetry collection I’ve ever read by MSJ and I liked it! I think that the poems were beautiful and relatable, and the illustrations were beautiful too! I also really liked the introduction, it was a poem by Charles Bukowski.

I wish that this poetry collection was a bit longer because I need a bit more to create a real opinion on MSJ’s writing. I think that what I’ve read so far is really good, but if Depersonalise were a bit longer, I could’ve formed a better opinion. That’s the only ‘negative’ thing I have to say about this collection.

If you want to read a short and beautiful poetry collection, then I suggest reading Depersonalise!
