it was amazing
bookshelves: poetry, giveawaywin, favorite, lgbqt

These poems were laced with a intimacy only a friend sobbing in your arms could convey. Honeybee is about loving someone dangerously and dealing with what happens after. The author describes falling in love and all of the joys that brings. Her relationship was everything until her Honeybee decided that Christianity and societal norms meant it wasn't. While reading these poems I remembered my own experiences of heartbreak and felt relieved while reading that those feelings of despair has dissipated with time.

"I want things that you disapprove of and you want things that I cannot give you."

The poems are simple but impactful. This volume included polished thoughts, handwritten feelings and illustrations throughout. Poetry is hard to rate, but any prose that makes you feel, remember and think is worth your time. Love is universal so there is something in these poems for everyone.

Giving my things back:
I am too heavy to carry
under the
of all this new happiness.
I was as close as skin to you once.

Recommended for Readers who
- enjoy modern poetry
- can deal with intimate musings on love
- aren't afraid to revisit their own heartbreak
