This was such beautiful, raw, poetry of the author’s thoughts, feelings and experiences. I sat there reading this book from cover to cover without putting it down, tears streaming down my face, relating to certain things said and feeling for the poet. I borrowed this from Kindle Unlimited, not sure what to expect. Now I will be purchasing this for my library. It’s just so beautiful, the kind of poetry you would want to read again and again. I will be checking out her blog and hope to see more poetry published by Gretchen Gomez in the future!
“there were so many times i had him right next to me and it’s as if he wasn’t there at all. i breathed in loneliness and it swallowed me deeper.”
“i found myself in an island of thoughts surrounded by waves of positivity. this time the moon shined bright on my skin and i finally danced.” -alone in the sand of self acceptance.
