Love poems and the anthologies that contain them are plentiful. But is it true of their counterpart, poems that speak to loneliness, heartbreak, unrequited love and the tragedy of abuse masquerading as love? A brief review of the literary genre would say that there is no such balance. Anthologies of heartbreak, it appears, do not exist in abundance.
Poems from Conflicted Hearts is an anthology of poems, about love’s heartache. The poems comes from twelve poets, both established and aspiring. The criteria for inclusion of their poems was that the poems must move us, they must touch heart and soul, they must come to life visually, becoming a part of us through their language, their rhythm, their pain.
We hope that you enjoy this anthology, the various voices that comprise it, their experiences with regard to conflicted love, their unique styles and the enlightenment and or catharsis that this collection of poems may provide.
