Books authored by Kyomi Wade.
With poems spanning 7+ years, they explore the thoughts of a pensive - and sometimes tormented - young woman, growing up, falling in love, mourning loss, assigning emotions and making sense of the world. And yes – it is as intense as it sounds!
Divided into three sections: Sadness, Short Bliss and The Undefined - Wade's collection explores what lies beneath the emotions of 'sadness' and 'bliss' and binds it together with a bunch of 'undefined' emotions too.
Friendships are touched on, as well as sisterhood, mental health, and musings about London, but love is by far the star of the show. Illustrations and design are by Sinduja Chandrapalan.
