Poetry, chapbook, 36 pages, from Bottlecap Features.
Purple Heart is not just a collection of poetry, it's a documented journey. It was one of those days we met someone on a bright, well-meaning Sunday and it was that one out of a million Facebook chats that hit it off on a remarkable note!
A couple of poems like Sungazing, show you at first that this was mutual. Some others like Ọjị tell you that everything was going great! Even Old Eyes speak promising, until Confession, until Dreams…
These poems are built to riddle you in. You are made welcome to watch another old love story turn into a battle with self.
Was there truly love or was she in a relationship with herself all this time?
