Publisher's Summary

Dear Universe…can you hear me?

If Pierra Calasanz-Labrador’s debut poetry collection The Heartbreak Diaries was equivalent to an “ugly cry”, this second volume is an introspective journey, a quiet voice longing to be heard. Like stumbling upon an introvert’s secret diary, these 50 poems chronicle fervent wishes, hidden fears, and everyday acts of bravery that may sound uncannily familiar. 

Whether you are searching for a soul mate, battling self-doubt, clearing out skeletons in your heart, or trying to chart your own course in an increasingly judgmental world, Dear Universe is an astute, empowering reminder that you are not alone.

The Right Book at Any Time <3

There are so many poems that struck a chord in this collection. Poems that I wish I can highlight and send to people so introverts can be better understood :)

On my first go, I so felt for KonMari, Unfollow and Mr. Wonderful.

From KonMari:
Marie Kondo's secret is to whisper: arigatou - Thank you for shaping me but now it's time to let go. The magic of decluttering is that while weeding out, what no longer serves me, what no longer speaks my truth, I discover the girl I’ve become, and she’s someone who no longer has space for you.

(I almost cried.)

So Amazing

I can’t get enough of it. The poems are wonderful, relatable, and substantial. In addition, the narrator did a great job. I’m definitely looking forward to listening to more books by the author and narrator.

This! I’m speechless!

This poem has too much emotions. The way it was read, it feels like my inner self is crying. Or maybe myself can’t even figure if it was even crying.

Beautiful poems and wonderfully narrated

these are simply beautiful poems, but they could have been ruined by the wrong narrator. luckily, this narrator could not have been more up to the task.
