I loved you tenderly, totally, & tragically. I loved you so hard, so much, and so deep, I could barely feel the cracking of my rib cage, as the fragments of my heart broke loudly inside my chest. Now you’re gone, and all I have left of you are memories I can’t forget, scars that won’t heal, and a half empty bottle that grants me temporary solace until the morning comes and the pain finds me again……

“Shadress Denise digs deep and penetrates the minds of the lonely ones, open the blinds for others, and shakes you to your core. She shows how you can find oneself feeling the reminisce of love ever after or love you thought was gone, but still lurks in the shadows” –Teresa Browning (Starred Review)

Love, Heartbreak & Hangovers is an intense work of poems packed with emotion. Shadress Denise writes provocative poetry about love, sexuality, heartbreak, forgiveness, and self-worth, combined in a creative expression of femininity and confidence. Each poem left without a title allows the reader an opportunity to relate to the poem and title it how they see fit, while forming a personal bond with the author’s words.
