“A poem about a rough relationship that ended, but even through all of the pain that was caused, the love over powers all of the bad memories.
Contains a curse word.” (description from Goodreads)
I only recently discovered Christensen’s poetry, and have read a few shorter pieces on her blog. Seeing that she published one in ebook form was a pleasant surprise that I wanted to check out.
While this ebook is only one poem in length, I feel that it was a great choice for her first publication. It’s has a great emotional tone. It also uses a repetitive set of lines to solidify its meaning for the reader, but not in an annoying “I’ve read this already” way. It was natural to the poem.
I hope this poet comes out with a collection, because I’d be one of the first to pick it up. I see a lot of potential in Christensen’s work.

About the Author:
My name is Erica, I’m from Iowa. I have always had a passion for writing and making up stories ever since I was a little girl. I have an awesome boyfriend and we share two beautiful daughters. Charlie and Ryan. They are my whole universe. They have given me the motivation to follow my dreams with writing. I love to write poetry, but I also dabble in writing horror, romance, and children’s books. My work is inspired by different events in my life and it’s also inspired by movies and music. My life may only be 21 years short, but I have experienced pain, love, defeat, and triumph in the rawest forms. My hope is that you will connect with the words carefully spilled throughout the pages of my poetry and books. Whether you laugh, cry, or get goosebumps. I don’t write for money or fame, sure that’d be great. But, I write for the escape. I write for the love, the pain, and in hopes of making others not only read my words, but feel my words.
