Every lover held a mirror with all my insecurities and loving them led to loving me. This is a reclamation and reconnection with the body woven into a tale of lovers; the loved, unloved, and unloving. I have been all three. I'd tell you that this is a work of fiction, but that would be a lie. Based on true events. Some details and timelines have been changed. This is the sister to Still Growing Wildflowers.
Still Growing Wildflowers...That's what we're calling this book. Because despite all of the life that happens to us, no matter how many times we get thrown down or pushed aside, we get back up again. We keep growing. And that's just beautiful. This is my raw, real, open heart; a compilation of poetry written through the years of healing in hopes of helping others heal too.
Oh Alisha! This book is the most beautiful and captivating collection of poems. I couldn’t stop, I read the whole book in one sitting. The emotions and feeling captured are raw, real and genuine. Anyone who has been through abuse, neglect or abandonment needs to read this. It should be the new step 1 for healing after trauma. Thank you Alisha for moving my soul and letting us know it’s okay we are all still growing ♥️
This book is lovely, heart wrenching and vulnerable. Highly recommend to have on your shelf as a piece of art. Alisha truly has a way with words and touches your soul. xx
This book made my whole day stop. To do list set aside, glass of wine poured, just reading, absorbing, feeling. Alisha's writing is stunning. The raw emotion that she so lovingly pours onto the page is beautifully heartbreaking and terrifyingly relatable. As her poetry meanders through a cycle of hurting and healing, it will bring laughter and tears. Set aside a chunk of time because this is a book you want to pay attention to and digest.
