What happens to the words that never escape the confines of heartbroken souls?
When someone chooses to vacate your life, they seldom take everything with them when they leave.
Closure is elusive. A heart still has questions.
It is ruthless in its inquisition and stores every one of them in your soul.
Where do the words go?
The ones we wanted to say, but never got the chance?
They live on.
They don't leave with their Muse.
They stay behind.
Clinging, building, breathing, and aching to be heard.
Abandoned breaths longing to breathe.
I feel them emerging, and for once I do not stop them.
I let them flow.
Abandoned Breaths is the debut poetic collection from Alfa.
Between these pages she has gathered the warehouses of the unsaid, and weaved together the voices that have remained silent in our heartbroken hotels.
All the abandoned breaths that we hold on to after serving time in heart warfare never really go away. They cling to dusty shelves, tucked into darken chambers among past wreckage; longing to be given life.
She has cleaned house and opened musty windows, letting pulsing words breathe and transform into poetic release.

She touches on the past, trying to make sense of her experiences, to move forward.This book is filled with timeless and vintage feeling poetry.
It will touch every individual that reads it -as we have all experienced heartache throughout life... no matter the age group.
