To Feel Poems by Sami Helgeson
These pages are letters to/from the deepest parts of ourselves. Collections of my heart written on napkins, in journals, newspaper, whatever I could find over the last five years. The poems tell a nonlinear story of love / heartbreak / trauma / loss / growth formed into words as best as I could manage. Feeling, writing about feeling, talking about feeling—is healing. I hope some of my words translate your emotions to paper, and I hope all of them inspire you to feel (all of it).
