These poems lay bare a spectacular love, a devastating heartbreak, and a spiritual self-transformation along the way.
In his second collection of poetry, Justin Wetch tackles the most universal and daunting human experience—love. It is a journey through intense emotions, a struggle with anxiety and mental health, and a contemplation of some of life’s biggest questions. Each themed section explores a different part of romance, from the exhilaration of total vulnerability to the isolation of irrevocable loss, and everything in between. Anyone who’s found or forfeited love will see themselves in the lines of Our Naked Souls.
Justin Wetch is a writer, photographer, musician, and 3-D artist from Anchorage, Alaska. He’s the internationally bestselling author of Bending the Universe, and his work has been published by outlets such as Cosmopolitan. Justin enjoys creating and consuming art of all kinds, and he happens to be the owner of the world’s worst Twitter feed (citation needed).
“Beautiful and packed words from a masterful poet.” (Dr.J Reads)
“Strikingly beautiful. I loved the love story told in verse. The black and white drawings were deceptively simple and poignant. The progression of the story inside was wonderful. I can’t wait to add this to my collection.” (Netgalley)
“heart-wrenching but completely relatable.” (The Reading Corner Book Lounge)
