love, and you out now!


my poetry book is now available to purchase in paperback and kindle edition!!!
i have been so nervous for this day to come and i still can’t believe it’s here! it still hasn’t set in that my poetry book, my first ever book is out in the world just doing it’s thing. excuse my language but my heart is in my ass.


i want to thank everyone who has supported this journey and been there since day one. not just with the book support but the poetry support in general. thanks for your beautiful comments, your wonderful words, those words of encouragement that kept me going. okay, legit i’m crying while i type this out. thanks to the guy who broke my heart over and over again, this book wouldn’t have been possible.


special shout out to three ladies:
Lilly @ Lair of Books for editing my book and being there!!!
to my beta readers Debby @ alwaysbooking who has a review for my book here
and to Danielle @ Books, Vertigo and Tea who also has a review here!

these ladies rock!! and i am so thankful that i have you three in my life ❀




some things to know about love, and you: majority of the poems do not have titles, unless they’re taglined and that’s more like a punchline. i don’t have titles because i want it to be read more as a story and in one whole. it’s also why i didn’t divide the book into three parts (hurting, healing, and learning) even though it flows in those parts. some poems are in spanish with translations, except for a short one. i aged this poetry book for the ages of 16+


synopsis (click here to add on goodreads):

one day i met a guy
who stole my heart,
we created a world
for ourselves.
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

love, and you has an aesthetic board on pinterest!! here are some of the photos:
