get under my skin
to see me,
knee-deep in this insanity,
beauty makes us weep.
must have thick skin,
the epitome of beauty
is said to be stick thin.
The price we pay is steep.
lives ripped apart at the seams.
we waste away,
no respite only beauty sleep.

Excerpt from the book “Skeletons in My Closet”
Skeletons in My Closet by Tamsen Grace
This collection of poetry does not hold back. It is a force to be reckoned with. The prose jumps off the page and dances on your lips, to the increased rhythm of your heart. This book embraces the dirt and negativity of the past, which too often shapes the future, and screams honesty and acceptance. It is a deeply satisfying and emotive read. The gracefulness with which the author discloses to us the skeletons in her closet is altogether brave and endearing.
