Title:Love and You
Author: Gretchen Gomez
Pages: 142, paperback
Rating: 5 Stars
This is Gretchen’s debut poetry collection and she didn’t disappoint. Gretchen is one of the first people I started talking to when I began blogging and she is such a sweet girl ! I am so HAPPY for her!
I ordered a paperback copy but I was to impatient that I also purchased an ebook copy so I could read it right away. I finished the book in one sitting. I expected to love it before I read it but I didn’t expect to feel so deeply connected to what Gretchen was saying. I’m at a loss for words. Her words are so powerful and beautifully written. I was able to relate to almost every poem and they left me in tears. Every girl should pick up a copy and read this collection. Girls need to know that self love is important and it’s okay to let go.I can’t even begin to pick a favorite poem I loved so many of them. I can’t wait to read more of Gretchen’s work in the future.
one day i met a guy
who stole my heart,
we created a world
and another day
he broke my heart
i took the tattered
pieces of this
broken soul and
– here lies the hurting, the healing, and the learning
