About the Book

“Listen To My Heart,” is full of passion; the poetry makes you look inside your soul and face the vulnerabilities of being human. The poems take you on a journey that lovers make: from the contemplative and lonely beginnings; to the tender and happy dreams of what love could be; to the new and passionate discoveries a person finds in another, and in one’s self; it is about the choices made by lovers that lead to the satisfying outcomes, and to the feelings of intense longing for something, or someone, that a lover experiences.
