love, & You by Gretchen Gomez review

one day i met a guy
who stole my heart,
we created a world
for outselves.
and another day
he broke my heart
and shattered
my soul.

i took the tattered
pieces of this
broken soul and
became anew.

here lies the hurting,
the healing, and
the learning


Poetry isn’t a genre I generally reach for. Except for Shel Silverstein, I could read those over and over 😂😂. Then I found Gretchen Gomez on Instagram. She took her heartache and pain and turned it into something beautiful and relatable. Our stories may differ but our pain is the same. This book gave me hope that I too can get through what I’m dealing with and turn out even better on the other side. Below I’m going to list a few of my favorite pieces from the book:

dedication

to the guy who
was once my
anchor,

sorry that our
sail wasn’t very
smooth.

to the women who
know they
deserve better,

this one’s for you.

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

i
don’t
know
how
to
write
about
the
happy
parts

because
all
i
knew
was
the
sadness

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

dear pretty little thing,

stop crying for the boy
who couldn’t love you
the way you deserve
to be loved.

like the delicate flower you are.
like the storm you are.
like the everything you are.

you
are
the
universe
pretty little thing.

and he can’t love you enough
because he doesn’t know
what to do with the universe
he’s holding in his hands.

sometimes you can’t teach
someone how to love.
you are not his mother,
pretty little thing.
you were once his lover.

you were meant to be loved by a lover.
not a son in search of his mother.

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

and if there is
one thing i learned
in all of this is that
there will always be
love, and you
will always be
the one i’m
thankful for,
because you
handed me the stars
without knowing it.
and you handed
me an anchor to
keep myself at bay.

-the end

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I don’t think any further words need to be said about this book of poetry. It’s words speak for itself.

5/5 🌟
