NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
Grammy Award–nominated, platinum-selling musician Halsey is heralded as one of the most compelling voices of her generation. In I Would Leave Me If I Could, she reveals never-before-heard poetry of longing, love, and the nuances of bipolar disorder.
In this intimate audio performance of her debut collection, Halsey bares her soul. Bringing the same artistry found in her lyrics, Halsey’s poems delve into the highs and lows of doomed relationships, family ties, sexuality, and mental illness. More hand grenades than confessions, these autobiographical poems explore and dismantle conventional notions of what it means to be a feminist in search of power.
Masterful as it is raw, passionate, and profound, I Would Leave Me If I Could signals the arrival of an essential voice.

I stay another day.
Raw and beautiful. That’s how I see and express my love for this women. She has a way with words that will forever be remembered and etched in my brain. Like a lovers tree bark and a old switch blade. She expresses and exposes what it is to be a girl turned into a women in this world. What should be normal in how a sexuality and the “dirty thoughts” we all think can be poetic and angelic. She has shown that there should be a metal for artists like her that open up the most vulnerable and stigma ridden parts of mental illness. How mainic, depression, anxiety,and bipolarism, isn’t a right to call another “crazy”.
All in all. With the last period. I felt if she can do it. I guess I can stay Another Day too.
I loved the book so much - had to get the audiobook.. the book paired with the audio creates such an experience. This is magic
