While Milk and Honey is a beautifully written poem I found it was emotionally drained and left me feeling empty and inspired all at once. What I love so much about Rupi Kaur is that when she writes her poems she never edits them so everything yo read is completely raw and to me that’s the only right way to write poetry because you may go back and read your poems and they may not make sense but when you wrote them they did so don’t erase them. Milk and Honey tells a depressing story of a breakup and how Kaur felt about it but in her last chapter it does discuss how things began to lighten up so the poem isn’t entirely dark. I also really enjoyed this poem because the author made it feel very personal for the reader as she doesn’t leave any details out about how she felt. Just be warned it is a little heavy emotionally speaking. 3 stars
