pressed flowers

there’s something in the book

but you don’t open it. afraid to get swallowed in the middle

because that’s how great stories take you in. squeezing cries out of you.

an art on its own. the last one you read made you cry.

tearing the pages. caught in the deep. one hand around

the spine.

Thank you for reading one of my poems. Better yet, you can—



Floral Moans

Floral Moans is a book of poetry and short prose by Kristina Taylor. Her work is an empowering collection of intimate and erotic poems based on romantic relationships and self-love. She gives literature a shameless fizz, writing raw and felinely to remind us of our sexual nature as lust is not a fall from grace but an awakening to a beautiful part of humanity. This book is a lesson of passion and pain teaching us that we, as humans, are the main source of love that leads to overcoming insecurities and healing from loss and failure. Note: This is an ebook.
