Lang Leav is back at healing our hearts and enlightening our souls through the power of her poetry. Her latest and sixth poetry book, Love Looks Pretty on You is full of poems that both your mind and heart need to hear.
Lang’s new poetry collection focuses on all things love; self-love, as well as the beauty, blindness, complexity, and acceptance of love. Love Looks Pretty on You contains 224 pages of poems. These poems are typically written in a few powerful sentences or with the use of metaphors but are inspiring and heartwarming nonetheless.
Lang Leav’s words give hope to the heartbroken. Though she’s written many poems about heartbreak and unrequited love, in recent years, she’s begun writing poems about requited love. This poetic transition illustrates that there is love after heartbreak, for both Lang and her readers. Her poem I Know Love from her latest collection is a beautiful example of finding and being in a mutually loving relationship. While Lang Leav still reflects on past loves, the present love in Lang Leav’s poems is no longer toxic or unrequited, it is wholesome and reciprocated.
Like any good poet, Lang is incredibly honest. She openly writes about her anxiety and makes us all a little less anxious by doing so.
Lang is also a mentor for fellow writers like me who often forget their reason for writing.
It has been an honor to read Lang Leav’s poetry as she’s shifted from heartbroken to happy, from lost to living, and from doubtful to determined. Though no one ever has it all figured out, there are always poems to be written about the journey there. So, when you’re feeling lost and in need of direction, consider reading a poem by Lang Leav. She just might help you find your way back.
