Splatters of the Heart is a collection of poems written while I was in an emotionally and financially abusive place.
The environment was toxic and operated like a church. Some of the poems written capture my feelings while I was there and some are a reflection of my experiences after I left.
Writing poetry has always been an effective coping mechanism that I’ve used to express feelings of love and dissolve feelings of anger and confusion.
Splatters of the Heart will give you a candid snapshot of my life and hopefully provide insight regarding my dismal experiences.
Each poem is accompanied by a paint splatter to represent that sometimes life feels like spilled paint, but when it spills on a canvas, it’s art. I hope you enjoy the splatters of my heart.
