the mermaid's voice returns in this one

The mermaid is known for her siren song, luring bedroom-eyed sailors to their demise. However, beneath these misguided myths are tales of escapism and healing, which Lovelace weaves throughout this empowering collection of poetry, taking you on a journey from the sea to the stars. They tried to silence her once and for all, but the mermaid’s voice returns in this one.

    🙈Lost On Me

    I don’t why but for me this one just repeated the others. Though I read the “witch” one almost a year ago, I felt like I’m actually rereading it. Also, I didn’t feel the depth and rhythm that made me love the first volume. So... I’m giving this a pass. Maybe, just not the right time and place.

    this is for the ones with

    starfall hearts and blown glass eyes

    this is for the ones with

    broken hands and unbroken ties

    this is for the ones with

    wild hair and ghosts in their lungs

    this is for the ones with

    unsung mothers and wars on their tongues

    this is for the ones with

    bruised peach skin and fear-flayed nails

    this is for the ones with

    hummingbird hearts and thighs that tell tales

    of nights they found love and nights to forget

    of days passed in silence, words not to regret

    - i am yours.

    you are sad now.

    you are not sad forever.

    there are no paved roads

    to healing.

    you must build one

    brick by brick.

    there will be backtracks

    before breakthroughs but—

    you must collapse

    into yourself

    before rebuilding.

    you must unearth

    every wound

    before learning

    the power of salt.

    you will build

    that yellow brick road—

    in your own time and

    on your own terms.

    - the grit of healing.
