I Was Married
By: Joy Horakova
About the Book
Welcome to my year. Broken up into dark, mystic seasons of love and grief, shame and isolation, pain and redemption. This book is composed of poems, thoughts, dreams, and journal entries, all chronologically displayed for you to read and relate to. I wrote because I had no other way of being heard. No other way to healthily free myself from what I was feeling, and no other book that would tell me what I should be doing.
I want you to feel understood, because I didn’t.
I want to be heard, because I wasn’t.
I want you to grow, because I did.
