Poetry, like people, can be hard to read.
Give them both a second chance.
the poet behind the blog
When I finished my first collection of poetry (Chemistry, Not Science), I noticed the entire book was about my dating life—first, as a young girl with plenty of crushes, then as a married woman, and, later, a widow. After publishing the book, I came to realize this truth: we are all, in one form or another, always dating. If we're not dating anyone else, we're dating ourselves.
For my next writing endeavor, I decided to pair poetry and relationships since some people do not relate to poetry alone. But relationships? Yeah, everyone can relate to that.
