*The one that got away*
_A true story of love found, love savoured and love lost._
This is a personal account of this author’s gory love story. He tells his bittersweet romantic journey in this book—using very detailed and descriptive poems.
These poems are sure to leave you in the middle of the poet’s shoes, feeling every single thing he felt as he went from falling in love, to experiencing the heady heights of passion and being in love and then to being betrayed and having his heart crushed.
This is a beautiful love story with an ugly ending. Well, that is not exactly true because the story doesn’t end there. It goes further to show you how he was able to pick himself up – albeit rather slowly and over many years – dust himself down and begin to thrive again.
Which is why this is not a tragic story. Oh no, it’s a story of the light at the end of every tunnel. It’s a story of finding your feet after a brutal fall. It’s a story of regeneration after being cut down. It’s a story of hope and healing. It is proof that you can survive whatever dastardly blow you’ve been dealt and come out stronger.
Also, there are several other poems interspersed all around and within this love story. These poems are on diverse themes that are informative, inspirational, entertaining and enriching all round.
It’s all in there, just waiting for you to pounce on it.
