Zoe, from Behind the Mask of Abuse, has published a couple different collections of poetry. This one, in particular, struck a chord with me. The writing is raw, powerful, emotion, and I think you would be hard-pressed not to connect with at least a handful of the pieces as you read through them.
Here is the title piece:
How awesome is that? That’s so awesome it’s awesome drenched in superbgravy.
When I decided that I wanted to do a quick write-up on the collection, I asked Zoe to provide a bit about herself and the book, and here is what she had to say:
“I’m a wife and the proud owner of a doxie and a snake. I like to write and always have. It’s been an outlet for me, as far back as I can remember. I’m thankful for it, because it helped me survive a childhood and beyond of abuse. The poems you’ll see in my book tell my story. I simply put them in my blog posts. One day my Hubby asked me why I didn’t put them in a book.
I had no good reason.
So now they’re in a book.
Despite the story of abuse that you will see, I want people to know they’re not alone and that there is hope.
I’d like to invite you into my story.”
The collection is currently available on Amazon, Smashwords, and Goodreads.
Zoe is amazing. If you aren’t already following her you should go do that immediately. And I highly recommend this collection. It will move you.
As Zoe always says, there is hope.
