Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur - Reshelved Books

Happy Thursday Reading Everyone!

I recently finished Rupi Kaur's book of poetry entitled Milk and Honey.  And when I say finished, I mean devoured.   For those of you who don't know, I dabble in writing poetry.  Actually, I had gone to school for it.  I've even gotten a couple published (one recently), but for the most part they stay private and only manifest every now and then.



Kaur's poetry is raw and and emotional.  It tells the story of heartbreak and abuse, but it also tells the story of strength and healing.  One thing that stood out to me was how Kaur constantly refers to herself in lowercase form of "i," mimicking how she sees herself, or rather how the scarring of her soul has made her see herself.  


Milk and Honey p. 194

I only wish that this book existed when heartbreak tried to break me.
