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.



the book behind the blog

A poetic story of love and loss with hopeful and intertwining themes of persistence, change, and renewal.
