Wor(l)ds of Love, Loss, and Longing is a collection of original poems by author, poet, and singer/songwriter, Beth Mitchum. This collection includes many love poems found in her first poetry collection, bethwor(l)ds: 20 years of poetry, as well as dozens of totally new poems that were either missed in the first collection or have been written since the publication of her first book. All the poems here fall under the themes of love found, love lost, or inner longing. Beth Mitchum's poetry is very readable even to the person who never thought they understood or cared to read poetry. She hopes that you will discover a hidden love for poetry, a genre she considers to be micro short stories, both true and fictional. For her the point of poetry is to tell a story, or paint a picture in your mind, in as few words as necessary to achieve that task. She sometimes uses Haiku to condense her own poems into even smaller packages. A story, if told well, doesn't have to be 1000 pages or even 1000 words long.
