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, offers 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.
This Is How You Mend Your Broken
And today you picked yourself up from the floor
And made it through another day.
Never let anyone tell you what your brave should look like.
This is how you heal:
One hard-fought day at a time.
This is how you mend your broken.
