Sorry it’s been a while posting here. life is extremely busy. here’s a longer piece from my new book you only love me when i’m suffering with @stmartinspress - now available in all targets and barnes & noble in the usa and indigos/chapters and coles in canada, and in the link in my bio for free international shipping. #thepoetrybandit
Jon lupin has been my friend for a long time now, and every day, he reminds me that men who drink are not all monsters. logically, i know this is true anyway. but he reminds me that sometimes love can overcome some of the things that can make us falter. that love can outlast our biggest shortcomings or our biggest flaws. he has reminded me that no matter how dark your world is — if you hit rock bottom, you can climb your way back up again.
also, this piece is one of my favorites of his. none of that dating business. no questioning what you are — a couple, or just friends with benefits? you just are. one hundred percent invested in this other person. that's how it should be. and when i showed this piece to my husband, his response was simple: that's exactly how i felt.
so, if you aren't already following @the_poetrybandit , do it now. you won't regret it. also, be sure snag his books!
