6. Pretty Dirty Things by Michael Faudet

Love is an inescapable feeling that everyone experiences despite any circumstances you are; no matter the gender, no matter the sexual preference. As a girl, it’s important that we also read poetry by men to realise their sentimentality and remember that they do feel as deeply as we do. Faudet does it well and without doubt, it’s truly a great read to check out.
