Tainted Lionheart by Christine Weimer
“…though I am known to cause fires, I refuse to waste my blaze on you.
I forgive you because I will not burn to ash for you….”
Tainted Lionheart is a collection that speaks on the perspective of understanding pain as a natural part of the process to healing. Through hard-hitting poetics and raw, honest verses, Christine Weimer openly discusses questions of worthiness, and coping with betrayal in a way that dismantles every idea and trope of what it means to experience heartache.
Broken into three sections, the book takes you on a journey through the bruising and brooding of pain- and the progression of which we breathe through it. It speaks to a vast audience in representation of the mess-to-mending of heart. Tainted Lionheart is the first of a three-part poetic series.
