About the Book
The best fairy tales are the untold stories, the ones where the powerless take back their power and emerge as the victors, but not before enduring a long, arduous battle with the self and the world. In her debut poetry collection, ',' Shahida Arabi candidly explores the themes of destruction and resurrection, unraveling the dark realities of abuse, gaslighting, heartbreak, stonewalling and the survivor's convoluted journey to freedom, healing, creativity and self-love. This collection provides an uncensored and raw exploration into the complexities of adversity and agency, offering a rare glimpse of what it truly means to survive and rise again from the impact of emotional and psychological violence.
