cross my heart and hope to try
The phrase 'cross my heart and hope to die' is usually used in place of an 'I promise' or 'I swear' - an unwavering commitment to tell the truth. Adrianna describes cross my heart and hope to try as an homage to her life. "All any of us ever do in this lifetime is try. Try to love, find love, be loved and find ourselves in the process. Cross my heart and hope to try is my unwavering commitment to never stop trying in this lifetime".
This is Adrianna's first book and is a carefully curated collection of poems about love, loss and healing. This is the story of individual and simultaneously universal emotions felt in the highest highs of an all-encompassing love and the lowest lows of a happily never after. The story transitions from heartbreak to healing in a way that inspires the reader to find the love they longed for within themselves. This book allows readers to share in vulnerability and embrace feeling, whilst empowering them to understand that the love we hold inside of us is powerful enough to transcend beyond 'he' or 'she' and instead, focus on 'me'.
