7 Lives Ago is a collection of poetry, created as a homage towards the sense of adoration, longing, and hopeless – yet endless – love. The book itself consists of several poems and prose that describe one’s wish to love and let go at the same time. Each work reflects the human nature of romance, for it is filled of not only joy, but also hurt from expectations. Some of the works bring up religious themes, because it is found that religion is the closest thing that can be related to love; devotion, the wishing of a miracle, how God embraces His worshipers the way lovers embrace one another. Aside from that, the love described in this book is perceived as a journey to spirituality which eases both mind and soul – a coming-back-to-home.

The book is divided into two parts: Heaven and Earth. Heaven section represents collection of literary works with various divine references, telling tales based on perspectives of metaphysics. Earth section has a lighter and grounded approach, in which it seeks love through breath of life and living.
