A lyric and insightful collection of poetry about the punishing love encounters that lead to growth and ultimately self-love.
If you've ever felt the confusion of being catapulted from one relationship to another in a cycle of sadness, hope, and disbelief, then you understand the "Continuous peeling and healing of a wound that is deep."
In her debut collection of poetry, Roots and Tendrils, Heidi Dellaire navigates the intimate journey of heartbreak and self-discovery. The journey assembles a decade of transitory love encounters following the end of a significant long-term relationship. Each poem, musing and affirmation advances the reader through love affairs both searing and exhilarating in their intensity. You'll meet the narcissist, the ghoster and the gas-lighter. You'll travel to the ocean, visit a cave, be ready for combat and soar through the mist. Then you will step from pain into the light of love where you too, will grow. Dellaire is a practitioner of several alternative healing modalities and is the founder of LoveWideOpen.com.
