This is Noor Iskandar’s second collection of poetry and reflections.
“Within these pages are confessions, professions of unlove; untuk hati yang tak reti cinta lantang. Still swimming in the valley of spirituality, the theme of faith in this second collection encroaches on the banks of romantic love and loss; all very human, all very otherworldly and complex. The collection carries emotional bouts of the nomadic lover, spilling out of his caravan. Of frayed thoughts and convoluted idea of loving. How could the turbulent be so silent? And how could the placid be violent? The poet probes this inquiry in I Love Too Quietly as he paints verses of pain; duka dan kesepian. This is essentially an ode to all the almost lovers, who made me understand my love can only exist in almost silences, within a void.” – Poet’s description
