Have you ever felt as though you were perpetually ricocheting off the bottom, struggled hard to stay alive, looked outside yourself to soothe unwanted strife? Have you felt loss that halted your breath and crumpled to the floor, do you see beauty in yourself when outside of closed doors? Where do you lay your dreams in the day and where do you lay at night... where does anything fit in this unplanned, sorrow-filled life? If you have known a love so great it picked you up off the floor of your grief-stricken madness and held you up, above it all... and then lost that, too... Intentioned Love Intentioned Sorrow is my sanguine love song to you. These pages, these words, are a cried-out, raw-eyed, fingernails-on-the-floorboards tantrum of my heart. These rancorous trials of heart mirror the rollercoaster emotions of loving and losing my partner and struggling with her addiction, dealing with a pre-teen daughter who ran away, and touch on the everlasting life trauma from suffering abuses as a child. Join Elizabeth in her debut poetry collection and revel in the intrigue, the heartache, the muted hope.
