From the author of The Chaos of Longing comes a powerful second poetry collection in which Robinson uses the metaphor of water to tell a story about achieving wholeness through letting go. 

Organized in three sections, Submerge explores immersion in and release from trauma, mental illness, and loss. “Immerse,” reflects on beginnings while exploring themes of love, self-discovery, and faith.  “Drown,” examines mental illness, trauma, and loss. “Emerge,” takes lessons from water and begins a journey toward healing. Robinson’s disarming candor, vivid imagery, and supportive message inspires and empowers.

The Chaos of Longing

The Chaos of Longing is a brutally honest exploration of desire—physical, emotional, and spiritual. 

Organized in four sections – Inception, Longing, Chaos, and Epiphany – K.Y. Robinson’s debut poetry collection explores what it is to want in spite of trauma, shame, injustice, and mental illness. It is one survivor’s powerful testimony, and a love letter “to those who lie awake burning.”
