From the British viral poet Della Hicks-Wilson comes an empowering and lyrical collection of short, interconnected poems about the heart, letting go, and a healing love, that readers can carry and quote for a lifetime.
Small Cures is at once a compelling reminder to anyone struggling with heartbreak, mental health, or trauma, that they are not alone, an inspirational manual on how to survive, and a stirring call to arms for self-love. This unique volume brings together 150 poems into one seamless narrative based on the different stages of an “illness” – diagnosis, treatment, and recovery. Through words that are as breathtakingly sparse and raw, as they are honest and memorable, Hicks-Wilson’s soothing and soulful voice serves as the gentle guide to self-healing we all need.
‘darling, you feel heavy because you are too full of truth.
open your mouth more. let the truth exist somewhere other than inside your body.’
