Poetry, chapbook, 40 pages, from Bottlecap Features.
The poetry you hold in your hands is a gentle reminder that you are never alone. It touches on heartbreak, what it is like living with mental illness, and the scars that love can leave.
Sunflowers and Thorns takes the reader on a journey through the darkest parts of being human. The thirty-six poems explore what it is like to live with an anxious ridden heart and an uncontrollable mind and the effects this has on those closest to you.
