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?

Poem: My Greatest Fear
Happy New Year! I missed posting last week because I’ve had internet connection issues this week. Everything is back to normal now (I hope) and I’m really excited to share another poem with you this week. I don’t normally write poems this long but to tell this story it really did need to be thisContinue reading “Poem: My Greatest Fear”
Poem: Desert Sands and Night Dance
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.
Poem: Anger, A Tribute to Persephone
Persephone has always been my favourite Greek Goddess and her tales are starting to become more popular, especially among neo-pagan witches. Lately, I’ve seen people making comments on social media discussing how Hades was the only Olympian King who was actually faithful to his wife.
Poem: Ghostly Stalker
I wanted to share another poem with you today. This is another of the poems I wrote for my poetry class at Uni. I love ghost stories and was a huge fan of The Mediator series by Meg Cabot. I firmly believe ghosts are real but what if we can’t see them? Or maybe someContinue reading “Poem: Ghostly Stalker”
Poem: Ghost in the Night
With Halloween only a few days away I feel like now would be an appropriate time to share this poem. I always feel like people won’t believe me when I say this but I have been writing poems and short stories since before I was in school. Hear me out before you disbelieve me. MyContinue reading “Poem: Ghost in the Night”

I decided to write a poem based off my own experiences with Anxiety and Depression which was then illustrated with the photographs I took. Here is the poem. I’ve found that Anxiety andContinue reading “Poem: Technicolour”
My Myth of Mermaids and Poem – Siren’s Song
If you’ve been following this blog, then you will know that I’m rather obsessed with Greek Mythology. Always have been. I am also semi-obsessed with Mermaids. It always puzzled me though that in modern art and literature the term Siren and Mermaid seem to be synonyms. The mythological Greek Siren’s are nothing like modern MermaidsContinue reading “My Myth of Mermaids and Poem – Siren’s Song”
Poem – Hades Halls
Today I wanted to share another poem. I had wanted to share an excerpt from Samhain Sorcery but I’m not where I wanted to be with it yet. So instead I’m sharing this. I wrote this poem circa 2010. I’ve probably mentioned before now that I am pretty obsessed with Greek Mythology. This poem wasContinue reading “Poem – Hades Halls”
Poem – Twisted
This is another of the poems I wrote during my Bachelor’s studies. This one was inspired by the body of fairy and folk tales I was studying at the time. It’s mainly inspired by tales such as Beauty and the Beast and myths such as Hades and Persephone, Cupid and Psyche, and really any ofContinue reading “Poem – Twisted”
