Love & Misadventure

❤ Love is a game of tic-tac-toe,
constantly waiting for the next x or o. ❤

Beautifully illustrated and thoughtfully conceived, Love and Misadventure will take you on a roller coaster ride through an ill-fated love affair—from the initial butterflies through the soaring heights to the devastating plunge. And, in the end, the message is one of hope.

The journey from love to heartbreak to finding love again is personal yet universal. Lang Leav’s evocative poetry speaks to the soul of anyone who is on this journey. Leav has an unnerving ability to see inside the hearts and minds of her readers. Her talent for translating complex emotions with astonishing simplicity has won her a cult following of devoted fans from all over the world.

A Dangerous Recipe

“To love him is something, I hold highly suspicious. Like having something, so very delicious – then being told, to do the dishes.”

His Cause and Effect

“He makes me turn, he makes me toss; his words mean mine are at a loss. He makes me blush! He makes me want to brush and floss.”

A Timeline

“You and I against a rule, set for us by time. A marker drawn to show our end etched into its line. The briefest moment shared with you – the longest on my mind.”

An Impossible Task

“To try or untry to forget you not, may be related somewhat. To tying, then trying to untie, a complicated knot.”

He and I

“When words run dry, he does not dry, nor do I. We are  on par. He just in, I just am, and we just are.”


“There is nothing more nice, there is nothing much worser; than me as your vice and you as my versa.”


“It was the way you spoke about her. With animosity, regret, disdain, and underneath it all – just a hint of pride.”

A Thank-You Note

You have said all the things I need to hear before I knew I need to hear them. To be unafraid of all the things I used to fear, before I knew I shouldn’t fear them.
