I’m not sure this actually is a poem. I’m not quite sure what it is. It’s too short for prose. It doesn’t rhyme. But it’s a little piece of my heart and what else is poetry if not a slice of our souls?
I know it’s late (blog day was yesterday) but I wanted to share another poem with you this week. I feel like I’m all over the place (I’m going through some major life changes) and I’m barely getting everything done. I actually wrote this poem while I was in university but I’m pretty sure IContinue reading “Poem: Mulled Thoughts”
So, I feel like I’m super late to the party but in May, I discovered the band The Tea Party. Considering my taste in music and the fact that I love middle eastern things I can’t believe I didn’t find them earlier. Naturally I immediately fell in love with their lyrical and musical style andContinue reading “Poem: Save The Last Dance For Me”
So for the last few days I can’t seem to stop writing sonnets. As I’d already scheduled today as being this month’s designated poem day I thought I would share one of my recent creations with you. Normally I hold on to them for a long time before I post them here. Death Has ComeContinue reading “Poem: Death Has Come To Hold My Hand”

Unfortunately I haven’t finished reading The Book of Life yet. So I’m swapping next week’s content for this week, and next week will be the review.Continue reading “Poem: The Changing Flame”
This week I thought I’d share with you another poem. I wanted to share with you the cover of The Lady of Zion but I’m having technical difficulties. Apparently the power supply to my external hard-drive is damaged, so while I’m organising a work-around I decided to pull this post up the schedule. 😀 Hopefully next weekContinue reading “Poem: The Dangers of Writing”
This poem is titled Sister and was written during my college years about my sister. All of my siblings are adopted so this poem is rather special to me. I have two sisters, and two best friends who might as well be my sisters, and like all sisters we haven’t always gotten along at times, but thisContinue reading “Poem: Sister”
Passion By B. Forrester On scented sheets of rose we lie,in the ambience candlelight provides,The passion of the night sublime,our entangled limbs collide. A hungry midnight snack; kisses trailed across a body.A neck, a chest, a back; a fire within embodied.Words spring from my mouth, spurred on by Calliope;a kind of love-struck poetry; eloquent andContinue reading “Poem: Passion”
Do you still have nightmares that you’re in high school? That you can’t seem to get to class, or that exam? That you have a huge assignment due in the morning and you keep getting interrupted from working on it? I know I’m not the only one that does. My mother still has nightmares about herContinue reading “Poem: High School Horror”
There is an exercise that is useful for generating writing that I sometimes use in my art practice. You listen to a song, or look at a piece of art and write what comes to you, inspired by the art.
