Poetry book - The Unravelled Heart by Kathy Parker
Poetry book, Melbourne poet, The Unravelled Heart by Kathy Parker.
Author Kathy Parker is a lover of beautiful words and wide-open spaces – a writer, poet, survivor, warrior and word alchemist. In this new work, she presents a journey of breaking to mending, surviving to loving, and the courage to rise from our darkest places, undefeated.
The Unravelled Heart, her first published collection of poems and prose, offer a profoundly honest reflection on trauma, abuse, love, loss, and healing. These verses confront our rawest humanity through powerful words and unveiled emotion. They move from anguish to a place of quiet resilience and tender hope. Delicate yet empowering, these poems seek to piece together the heart torn by sorrow.
