I am not sure
if I still love you,
but when I write
my rhyme and rhythm
but your name.
—R. C. Gonzales, Rhyme and Rhythm—
This week, I’d like to shine a spotlight on Between My Bleeding Lines, a debut poetry collection by R. C. Gonzales, or as many of us WordPress-dwellers know her, Rosemarie of A Reading Writer.
This book tells the journey from heartbreak to healing with eloquence and depth. It explores the growth of a young heart learning to pick up its broken pieces and discovering its own strength. The individual poems are short, but each packs a wallop of emotion.
I have personally been a fan of Rosemarie’s writing since we became friends here on WordPress. This is a girl with one of the biggest hearts I’ve ever known and her capacity for love is evident in the way she writes: a tinge of melancholy echoes through her poetry, but always present is her underlying message of being brave to love not just others, but also oneself.
Between My Bleeding Lines is available on Amazon.
In case you missed last week’s announcement:
Changes are afoot!
I’m changing the format of my weekly Writer’s Quote Wednesday feature. In the past, I used this feature as a way to share my poems that were inspired by that week’s quote.
Moving forward, I’ve decided to transfer the spotlight from my poetry to the writers’ work that I share every week. Thus, these posts will start with the full quote or poem that I want to share that week, followed by a brief afterword of sorts.
I’ve decided to make this change because I want to be able to share work from other writers and poets and give them the full spotlight they deserve. I hope you guys will like their work too!
