Kiss Off: Poems To Set You Free

by Mary D. Esselman Elizabeth Ash Vélez

The editors of The Hell With Love are back, applying their irreverent view of life and love to help melt the hardest heart of all--your own. For anyone who's been let down by life and love, these poems reveal that the most important person you can fall in love with is yourself. The collection travels through various stages of self-discovery, self-doubt, and, ultimately, self-realization and acceptance-from first kiss to kiss off. Renowned poets, including John Keats, Margaret Atwood, James Wright, Lucille Clifton, and Marie Ponsot explore the universal issues of trust and betrayal, awakening and curiosity, freedom, and self-confidence. This collection will show anyone looking for love how to find it within.
