Love is all you need.
Instagram is chock-full of poets these days, sharing words on life and romance. With wordsmiths like Jessica Michelle on the site, along with other poets such as Cleo Wade and Christopher Poindexter, it isn't hard to see how a few minutes of checking out their pages can turn into hours of scrolling through their work.
Poetry has evolved since the days when Shakespeare was around, just like Jessica Michelle's poetry has evolved since she was a young girl. As she grew up, Jessica felt that poetry was an outlet that she could use to take her to a happier place; one that is full of love and acceptance.
And just by reading a few of her poems, you would agree with me when I say that her work is definitely something fantastical and dreamy.
Jessica Michelle isn't afraid to write about heartache either, but it's the way she writes about it that makes it feel like even the harshest truths still have a sense of romance to them.
Whether she's writing about the boy who fell in love with the girl or relating loving yourself to finding galaxies of stars within you, she reminds us all that romance is very much alive and that life isn't only beautiful when good things happen.
Jessica Michelle might not be a stranger to heartbreak, but just like us, she knows that good always comes out of the bad.
She believes that if she shares her words with people, she just might be able to touch lives and help someone love life a little bit more.
