After a few of the toughest times in my life, I decided to translate those feelings into poetry. Death is guilt-inducing, puberty is embarrassing, and I could never let my insecurities fester for too long. This book is a collection of simple and awkward stories written in a complicated way so you never truly know what it’s about- at least I hope you don’t. There was a certain turning point in my life where everything started to make more sense, and I want my poetry to show you that at some stage it just becomes another story to tell. When time wasn’t healing anymore, I started ranting on paper, and out came sappy poetry. Poems are delicate, so treat these with care, your interpretation is more important than any meaning of my own.
