“Milk and Honey”, A Collection of Poems by Rupi Kaur

Picked up this book of poetry by the insanely talented Rupi Kaur. It is so stunning, wow. I’ll attach the Good-Reads Plot below & a few of my favorite quotes from the book. Such a beautiful collection. Also stopped by the Vancouver Laduree store for some treats, and they are almost too cute to eat <3


“most importantly love
like it’s the only thing you know how
at the end of the day all this
means nothing
this page
where you’re sitting
your degree
your job
the money
nothing even matters
except love and human connection
who you loved
and how deeply you loved them
how you touched the people around you
and how much you gave them”
Rupi Kaur, milk and honey

“what am i to you he asks
i put my hands in his lap
and whisper you
are every hope
i’ve ever had
in human form”
Rupi Kaur, milk and honey


“stay strong through your pain
grow flowers from it
you have helped me
grow flowers out of mine so
bloom beautifully
bloom softly
however you need
just bloom”
Rupi Kaur, milk and honey


“i do not want to have you
to fill the empty parts of me
i want to be full on my own
i want to be so complete
i could light a whole city
and then
i want to have you
cause the two of us combined
could set it on fire”
Rupi Kaur, milk and honey


(milk and honey is a collection of poetry and prose about survival. It is about the experience of violence, abuse, love, loss, and femininity. It is split into four chapters, and each chapter serves a different purpose, deals with a different pain, heals a different heartache. milk and honey takes readers through a journey of the most bitter moments in life and finds sweetness in them because there is sweetness everywhere if you are just willing to look.)— Good-Reads Plot Summary
