*I received this book for review, but all opinions are my own*
Loves Me Not, Loves Me by Brittany Julian is a poetry collection split into 2 parts. The first part, “Heartache’s Interlude” focuses on heartbreak and the pain caused by it. It also details the healing and forgiveness you must do for yourself.
The second half is about love. A main focus in this book is that you can’t have love without heartbreak, and vice versa. You need to go through some hardships to be able to feel love completely.
I really, really enjoyed this book. The poetry is amazing and relatable. Even if you have never gone through heartbreak or experienced true love, you can feel the words the author is writing nonetheless.
I haven’t read any poetry books in a couple of months, but this one reminded me why I love them so much.
Here is one of my favorites:
please don’t convince yourself
that you are too complex
to be loved
you are not a problem
waiting to be solved
there is no algorithm
for us humans
who fall in love
no way to calculate
if the love will be worth the loss
in the months to come
or if all the frogs i’ve kissed
have led me to meet
one f****** prince
