This is how you draw a broken heart:
Dip your fingers in blood and don’t
Hesitate to botch the final project.
This is a book about love and the wounds that it can bring. It explores the exhilaration of first love, the damage of unrequited love, and the distress of abandonment. The poems are little memories that come alive, a journey between reality and fantasy, often mingling as one. Fragments of life depicted in words. This is a collection of poems both cruel and sweet. The poems depict the difference between how we perceive ourselves and how others perceive us. But most of all, this is a kaleidoscope of emotions that are multiplied and amplified as the reader looks into the window of a young woman’s heart.
This poetry collection is probably the closest anyone will ever get to reading my diary. Many of the poems were written between the ages of 14-24, although there are about two or three that were written more recently.
Some of these poems have been featured elsewhere. Such as:
The Enchanted Forest (honorable mention from Amherst Society in 1997) & featured in a European anthology in 1998
The Love Song (the Illiad Press 1997)
Betrayed With a Kiss for Wildsound Festival
The book is up for pre-order on Amazon but will be available on FEBRUARY 12, 2019.
This collection is perfect for those who are fans of dark poetry, gothic lit, and love poems. Some of the topics explored in this book are: relationships, first love, body image, unrequited love, eating disorders, toxic relationships, death, abandonment, addiction, obsessive-compulsive disorder, depression, and suicide.
