Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur – A Book Review

a small velvet book
whispered into
the darkest
most wounded parts
of my soul
the most tormented
and muted depths
of my heart
painting these cheeks
with tears
and warmth
as i recognised
a voice
a familiarity
a friend
a lonely comfort
that i didn’t even realise
i so desperately
craved.

thank you, rupi kaur. thank you so much.

This is an extraordinary book filled with powerful truth and reality; a true movement towards change, equality, and feminism of the most loveliest nature. It is raw and naked for the world to see with more depth and exploration of the sensual honesty of what it means to be an object, a tool, or a slave to the inequality of god-given genitalia. It has a voice that’s unhindered and mesmerising; one to gut you from naval to nose, while it’s magical comfort sews you back up in a way you never could have imagined.

5 heartbeats outta 5.
