Emily Skyes words are brave and strong and simple, giving a necessary and clear voice to difficult experiences. She focuses often on the impact abuse has on relationships, which will touch many others. People who have experienced childhood abuse will identify with these poems and find them helpful because they break silence, articulate the unspeakable, offer hope, and show that no one need be alone in their pain. Miriam Taylor, psychotherapist, trainer and author of Trauma Therapy and Clinical Practice. Emily Skyes Ours is borne from a long journey of quest and return. Emily brings back from a world of confusion and disturbance, a series of gifts in the shape of poems and images. These pieces are important in opening up a dialogue - not just about the content, but the form that they take - gradually becoming sharper, clearer and more rooted in tangible images and moments, a metaphor for the authors personal recovery and growth. I am optimistic that Emily will share this visual and literary map with those who understand the challenging places it navigates and the hopeful new vista that this book presents.
