Description of the Book :

This book is a collection of poems that explore queer spirituality, relationships, love and the human experience. It begs the question: what is love? and delves into how we heal from heartbreak, what our relationship to God is after coming out, and how we begin to love again. Loss and love go hand in hand to express what it means to have a melancholic sort of hope.
