Wow. You know when you read something that just speaks to your soul; when someone puts on the page the exact thoughts and feelings you’ve had yourself and makes you feel like you’re not alone in the mistakes you’ve made and hard times you’ve experienced? Well this is one of those. If you’ve ever been through heartbreak, doubted yourself or a relationship, struggled to find yourself after what seems like irreparable damage – you need to read this. When Megan at Debatable Dateable first contacted me to offer me the chance of reviewing Cracked Open, I was hesitant as I’d never read a book of poetry before and wasn’t sure I would do it justice. How glad am I I chose to take the plunge and give it a go though! This is a book I know I will return to again and again throughout my journey to find…

No Quick Fix

Sometimes I feel so weak and small

Like I’m hard to deal with and the baggage I carry is too much to haul.

My insecurities create issues

plummeting through the open sky

and all i ever do is cry.

Is your love big enough to carry me when I’m like this

I’m no quick fix, can’t just wish it all away with a single kiss

I need you more than you might know

So if you love me now, please don’t ever let me go

Winning the War

I never meant to hurt you

by the things i can’t undo

But You can’t keep punishing me

for the things I did before i met you

It breaks my heart to know

I’ve been breaking yours like glass

I don’t care about those in my past

I’ll forget it all if that’s what makes you happy

There is no battle to fight love, victory is yours

Because you’re the only one for me

Just wait till Im down on one knee

I loved you when i first met you

and i love you more still

Let me settle your mind,

there is no more blood to spill

Big Announcement!

I’m SUPERRRRRR excited to be telling you all that I’m working on my


It’s something I’ve been contemplating for many months and finally in January I decided I was going to actually go for it this time! I love poetry but I never expected I’d be on this path so you’re all surprised as I am. I’m nervous about it all but I know I just have to  take the jump and face the unknown.

The book will be a 5 chapter journey of love and heartbreak. I’ll be incorporating 20 never before seen poems as well as new illustrations throughout the book!! I expect the book to be just over 100 pages and I am beyond excited for you to see it all! I’ll be self publishing and you can definitely expect some articles on my experience there.

I’m so happy to be sharing this passion project with all of you and will be updating you all along the way! Expect to get your hands on a copy THIS SUMMER!!! I’ll have more information and links as that time approaches.




I’m obsessed with you

even though i shouldn’t be

I want to know everything thing

you’ve ever said and did

I want to be you singing along with him like you’re the only two at that concert

Feeling him move as the jazz music rises later that night

Tell me, are you jealous of me too?

The sole commitment to me and our future

The i love yous whispered in my ear

Do you wish to be me

like i wish to be you?
