    Heart is a beautiful collection of poems carefully divided into four parts; love, break, relapse and hope. This arrangement tells the story of a woman's journey through love, and I absolutely love how raw and honest it is. I know that the author is a Muslim, and I truly appreciated seeing her subtly describe the struggles and dilemma of sometimes needing to choose between our feelings and our faith when it comes to love.

This arrangement tells the story of a woman's journey through love, and I absolutely love how raw and honest it is. I know that the author is a Muslim, and I truly appreciated seeing her subtly describe the struggles and dilemma of sometimes needing to choose between our feelings and our faith when it comes to love. I found myself being able to relate to many of the poems, i think i ended up dog-earing more than half of the book because i just had to mark my favourite ones.I think i probably went through a very similar journey, which is why I just love how Ayesha Khan managed to capture some of my thoughts so perfectly. Every time I found her words describing something i could relate to so well, i had to clutch my chest and either smile or wipe away silent tears. I realised after finishing the book that I had already personally experienced the first two phases (love and break), and that I am currently somewhere in between the third and the fourth phase (relapse and hope), so I definitely read this at the right time. The first part let me reminisce the love that I had experienced, which i realised later was actually my first love that i considered to be real, which explains why i am very deeply affected by my breakup. The second part allowed me to open up to myself; admitting how broken i became and how vulnerable I was. I couldn't relate too much to the third part, because it hasn't been too long since my heartbreak so i haven't gotten to experience the same kind of relapse. The final part definitely gave me hope to keep on healing and love myself enough to believe that I don't need that person to still have a happy life.Complimenting most of the poems are adorable illustrations drawn by Ayesha herself. I love how cute, simple and relevant they are. I also love that this book doesn't only have poetry; in each chapter Ayesha also includes a few unique pages of memories, lessons and more personal thoughts about her personal experience. Even though they were more specific towards the person she wrote her poems for, somehow I could still relate very well with them. Other than that, in the middle of the book there are a couple of pages of cool and aesthetic designs of inspirational words. I feel like this book was complete with everything i needed to help myself move on from my recent heartbreak. I can come back and reread it whenever I need to cry about the past, and even when I need some inspiration to keep moving forward.I can't promise that everyone who reads it will love it as much as i do, because I do think that it takes personal experience, perhaps a similar one, to appreciate the entire book. However, I'm very sure that a person who has fallen in love before, or has experienced heartbreak or can empathize with a person who has, will be able to find themselves relating to some if not all of Ayesha's poems. This is definitely one of my favourite poetry books about love, and i hope it gets the love and attention it deserves. 4.75 stars from me!

    This was such a lovely poetry collection. I think this book will especially resonate with anyone who has experienced heart break or has been through a difficult relationship. Majority of the poems included simple illustrations that represented the theme - all drawn by Ayesha Khan herself - I loved this and thought it was so well done.

    I got a PDF of this book from the author herself. The book was as wonderful as the author! The way she takes you through a journey with her poems, from the scars, to the healing. Something I'd bring to a coffee shop and chill :)
