Here are my favourite poems in Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀- 1 -
⠀⠀⠀how is it so easy for you
⠀to be kind to people he asked

⠀⠀⠀milk and honey dripped
⠀⠀from my lips as I answered

⠀⠀⠀cause people have not
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀been kind to me.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀- 2 -
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀your name is
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀the strongest
⠀⠀⠀⠀positive and negative
⠀⠀connotation in any language
⠀⠀⠀⠀it either lights me up
⠀⠀or leaves me aching for days.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀dont mistake
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀salt for sugar
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀if he wants
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀to be with you
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ he will
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀its that simple.⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀- 5 -
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀neither of us is happy
⠀⠀but neither of us wants to leave
⠀⠀so we keep breaking eachother
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀and calling it love.
