Enter the world of Ele-Mental, a powerful collection of poems that will take you on an emotional journey through the depths of human experiences. Through raw and vulnerable verses, author Lazzari delves into the realms of Neurodivergence, courageously sharing their unique perspective as a member of the LGBTQIA+ community.

Heartbreak, trauma, pain, and healing intertwine with each carefully chosen word, inviting you to connect with your own emotions and join Lazzari on their transformative path. These mesmerizing poems were crafted during a period of great personal struggle for Lazzari. "Every word was written over the course of the several months I spent in hospitals and psych wards. Poetry became the method through which I came to express myself most authentically and most honestly."

Lazzari's exploration of heartbreak, trauma, pain, love, and healing have the power to evoke feelings which transcend the ordinary and provide a map for you to explore the intricate tapestry of human existence.
