Strawberry Fields by Luke Cable
Also available on Kindle here
STRAWBERRY FIELDS is a collection of poems about sexual assault, living with mental illness and the struggles of being young and queer, with some love poems in the mix.
"Some days I’d wake up,
And that was enough to feel defeated.
I pull myself from slumber
Like a wounded soldier,
My bedroom a battleﬁeld.
Lost in my infatuation with all that is dead
I feel my strawberry ﬁelds
And I am lost in shades of red.
My Abuser left the seeds of my sadness
Beneath my skin and I grow
Strawberries from within.
He ate his ﬁll, plundered,"
