About the Book
Falling In (and out of) Love (and lust) is a debut poetry pamphlet themed around love and relationships. It explores diverse emotional aspects of intimacy from euphoria to heartbreak, considering how romantic connections are impacted by a culture of ubiquitous screen time. As the poems move through different phases of relationships and sensual experiences, they invite us to consider not only what it means to love another but, crucially, to love oneself.
