Rupi Kaur's Poetry

These days I usually read my books on my e-reader. From time to time though I make an exception. When I really want to "own" a book, put it in my library. When I want to look at it, feel it, leave it somewhere in my room and read a few lines whenever I feel like reading.
The poetry book written by Rupi Kaur is one of these books. Milk and honey is the title.
I am not usually a huge fan of poetry but her words? oh my. Her words. Crazy good.
There are four chapters; the hurting, the loving, the breaking, the healing. Not that any of these topics are important for me at the moment (well, I wouldn't mind the loving part :-)) and this just makes this little book even more awesome.
I like her words not because of what she is talking about but because I like her words. Simply because of the way she put them together. The rhythm. The sound. Amazing.
And I just love the words she put on the left of the content table:

my heart woke me crying last night
how can i help i begged
my heart said
write the book.

I am just so glad that she listened to her heart!
