Dark rhymes and deep thoughts send you on a dive through the void as you read this intensely personal poetry collection. Melancholia will send you into worlds both beyond and within, opening your eyes to truths often left untold in this world and challenging you with the harsh realities and injustices of life, without abandoning the darkly comforting magic that can be found in the shadows.

Reviews:Angela Yuriko Smith on Ko-Fi wrote:

Sumiko Saulson has once again dared to submerge into dark and twisted realms to resurface with new poems to challenge. Nothing is taboo in this exploration of the mind and what makes us kick, mourn and find the melancholia that waits for us all. Saulson's poetry invites us to confront the things we try not to think about and embrace the specters within. An intensely profoundly moving poetry collection that speaks of personal truths often left untold while fearlessly confronting our shadow self without flinching.

Rain Graves wrote:

"Sumiko Saulson's storytelling reaches up from the depths of death, through the sediment of time, catching beams of light in Melancholia: A Book of Dark Poetry. From classic monsters, ghosts, dark fantasy, and urban fairytales to the pain and anguish of everyday modern and sci-fi life, there is much to read between the lines. Their personal struggles, strength and shedding light on tough issues are all beautiful, savory blood on the page." - Rain Graves, Bram Stoker Award Winning author of Barfodder
