Preface . . .
I have always found comfort in the written word. Whether it was lyrics to a song, poems, or books, I could make a connection with a writer or artist from another time. It would make me feel like someone finally understood me and that I was going to be okay, no matter what I was going through.
When I just couldn’t find the right words to say, I would look to the work of authors and poets. The good times and the bad were so beautifully described by strangers with hearts that beat and broke in the same way mine did. And, it was from this love for words that I found my own voice.
I started writing my heart onto blank pages, in hopes that someone, somewhere might find the same comfort or strength in my writing that I have so often found in the works of others.
This poetry book is divided into four different categories: life, love, loss, and learning.
Some poems are more personal than others, but all of them are bound by the same universal feelings and struggles that we all experience. They do not necessarily have to be read in the order that they have been organized into here. Some may find that they need the poems in certain sections more than others.
Whether you are falling in love for the first time or finding your way after a major heartbreak, there is something for you here. Because our pain is our common ground. So, I have spilled some of mine onto these pages in hopes that you might feel a little less alone when you’ve finished reading this collection.
