Our entire lives are dictated by love. Love creates our brightest joys and our deepest aches. Love cures. Love scars. Love brings out both the best and the worst of us, and yet, through the highs and the lows, we learn, and we grow, making ourselves ready to find the love that lasts.

Lovers/Exes/Soulmate is a testament to those who take our hearts, break our hearts, and make them whole again. From the intensity of our first loves, through the despair of heartbreak, and to finding “the one” and beyond, this collection of poetry and prose captures what it means to be human: to love, to lose, and to love again.
