From 2011-2014, I was in an intense relationship. Well, I was in something intense. Whether or not the words 'relationship' apply to our relationship is a matter that myself  and scores of internet articles have been trying to figure out. 

Despite the pain, the relationship brought I still think it was beautiful and I still think of the time fondly. And the poetry? In the words' of Kat Dahlia, "it proved to be writer's gold." 

The theme of this collection comes from my habit of worshipping my lovers like gods. I've always been fascinated with religion and of course sex so I think it fits. I hope you enjoy this collection. 

If you like spiritual poetry that is also sensual (I tend to be a tad bit dirtier) then I cannot recommend Lucille Clifton enough. She is one of my poetic influences  and her work inspired this collection.
