The Exquisite Pain of the Unrequited

“What happens when you meet your soul mate at the wrong time?
What happens when you meet your soul mate, but you aren’t theirs?”

la douleur exquise:
the exquisite pain of loving some unattainable

Goodreads Choice Nominated poet J.R. Rogue’s debut poetry collection tells the tale of a once-in-a-lifetime love unreturned. These heartwrenching and soul-crushing poems are confessional while also being relatable. This collection will make you feel seen in all your heartbreak.

“I will write stories about how we lost each other, because that’s the part I will never get over. That’s the part I know best.”
