"I have read DIARY OF A CRUSH by Lena Kovadlo. She never ceases to amaze me. This unique author takes emotions and paints them with words straight from her heart to yours. In this particular book Lena dwelves mostly in what it's like to fall in and out of love and all the emotions that accompany love both lost and found. If you want to fall in love again and re-visit those feelings; if you want to remember how it felt to suffer a broken heart, Diary of a Crush will take you back in time to where you are ready to fall back in love again ~ back in love again with this Author, Lena Kovadlo."
Review by Regis Auffray - 2010
In "Diary of a Crush, Ms. Kovadlo honestly shares the highs and lows of love; its laughter and tears, its joys and sorrows, its integral part of life and living. I often found myself moved to tears as I read the poems because so much of what is expressed within them stirred the depth of my soul. Anyone who has been in love, who is in love, or who will be in love will find something to relate to in Ms. Kovadlo's poetry.
Review by Nicole Ward - October 29, 2009
I really enjoyed this book, Lena's writing is excellent and she explains love and crushes very well, and all that goes with it. Her book contains writing in three different forms which take the reader through the journey of having a crush. Well worth buying.
Another crawling day
By the soothing ocean
Caressing the inner me
Deep to the core, washing away
Every scar imprinted within
From the love turned bitter
Gnawing at my heart.
Here I am in the safety,
In the comfort of this force
Jolting me back to life,
Knowing that with times' passing
Love will bloom once more,
Making me whole again,
Never letting me wither.
Oh how the love will spill its waves,
Penetrating me inch by inch,
Quenching my thirst for beauty
Resting, waiting to unfold.
Spring will open its wings
To the magic, to the love hidden
Under the snowy plains of sleep.
Velour kisses of the sun
Will fill my vacant heart
Xanthic from winter's rotten fruit,
Yanking me to the healing light,
Zenith of life enwrapping me still.
