A poetry collection divided into four different parts: the princess, the damsel, the queen, & you. the princess, the damsel, & the queen piece together the life of the author in three stages, while you serves as a note to the reader & all of humankind. Explores life & all of its love, loss, grief, healing, empowerment, & inspirations.

My Review:

enjoyable/easy to read:
This book had me from the second page:

when i had
no friends
i reached inside
my beloved
& sculpted some
out of
12 pt
times new roman.
- & it was almost good enough.

Tough subjects tackled with prose. Yeah, I’ve seen the bitter tumblr-related reviews and yeah, I get it. The author is a little too fond of hitting enter and it might not be ‘highbrow’ enough for all the poetry snobs out there but I enjoyed it. My inner emo kid appreciated the little throwback feeling this collection of poems inspired.
