Shannon Seiver writes a book of poetry from her heart. Each poem is from a stream of consciousness as she contemplates a relationship gone wrong. This was a relationship that caused her heartache and deep despair. She works through the pain by writing her thoughts and feelings in verse form. We can see the progress she makes as she draws strength from the thoughts of her children and from her past childhood. The love she has for her parents also plays a great part. She acknowledges the love she had for her father and how she misses him when he passes away. She has a very close and loving relationship with her mother. As Shannon tries to pull away from the relationship, her partner tries to draw her back. Can she draw out of her despair and look forward and not backward? Can she begin to regain her confidence and grow in strength?
This is a book of poetry about relationships and of a relationship gone bad, a story of heartache and despair, and about what the author must do to grow out of this and find peace of mind and regain her confidence in herself. Her confidence has been beaten down and needs to be regained to be whole again. This a book gives hope to those caught up in the grip of depression caused by a relationship gone sour. Hopeless situations need not be hopeless, as the author illustrates through her poems.
