Author Name: Elizabeth Dennings | Format: Paperback | Genre : Poetry | Other Details

What is love? What is the nature of unrequited love? Are we all alone in this world? How can we deal with melancholy? What does it mean to engage in self-love? How sweet is the sweetness of little moments that teach us? Is this society worth the time and energy that we feel obligated to put in? How do we approach the inherent desire to kill ourselves?

The author, through a collection of 63 poems written between the years 2010 to 2023, attempts to answer in verse these and a few other questions which gnaw at us all too often with no answers to attain closure. Furthermore, the book demonstrates how we can embrace our darkness, reconcile with our imperfections, cope with our shallow environment, and deal with death and the process of dying.
