With Him

With you,

 

I didn’t write for a whole year Because I was so happy 

La la la In pretty dresses

My Sunday best

Your arms wrapped around me like a fuzzy cocoon

I didn’t want to wake up.

 

I wrap myself in blankets now

I traded dresses for trousers

I don’t wear much makeup anymore

I am starting to think it was all for you

 

Perhaps it’s all just a transaction in the end

 

But maybe now 

I will make my own cocoon 

And I will stop waking up at 3am  

wondering how a pillow replaced your chest.

Rollercoaster Love

My life with you was a rollercoaster ride

I did not want to get off

I was used to the rise and fall in my tummy

Used to the chaos you brought

Used to the mess you left

 

There were nights when I was tucked into him

peaceful, quiet, safe,

Where I longed for your fast paced kiss.

By Night

By night, the map of your body

is like the warmth of sunlight on my hands.

I swear

I could,

with     dancing    fingertips 

trace your outline continuously

Until insanity      

came for me.

My Joy

I am convinced I had not known pure joy until I met you.

Of course, I had felt sunbeams on my face and seen beauty in sunsets and the sound of the ocean. Heard a baby’s laugh and slept in someone’s arms that I loved. Seen snowflakes and sunrises and many wondrous things. But I would have given up all pleasures of the world for you. It is not a secret that you will never stop dazzling me. I had never known beauty until you and I would not be surprised if I lived my whole life and never found wonder again.

Coffee Stained Love

The morning I left, I left you in bed

with a coffee-stained love note.

My shirt, only half tucked in,

My hair only half done, a loose bun,

but I was  halfway out the door

with one shoe on and a triangle of toast

dangling from my cherry red lips.

 

How I did not kiss you goodbye  in fear of branding you bloody

How whilst on my early commute to work

I wished I had.

Chess Piece Lover

Before the move;

Ape, murmur, obey.

I am twin of your voice

Mirror it

 

What a shame I wear day

As though I were insane,

You obedient with moves, bold echoing

motions, image, moods

 

Until you rock the enemy

Then you move

The chess piece starter

 

How incredible

to be grown, sensible,

whilst I maddening.

 

 

 

 

 

Love Equations

Our Love pencil smudged.

How you could not help but make it anything but mathematical,

How I could not help but hate you for it.

Our Tracing paper love ripped

Your logical brain and  my rubber heart a useless eraser,

Erase-her

Did she feel how I feel?

Will you keep on the straight and narrow

don’t you dare pencil me out now

and fall in love with the point of the compass

whilst detesting my soft projector  curve,

Was I too woman for you?

The sharp  point of your own silver compass, cold and piercing,

How I would always come back to you, scratched,

my heart a fistful of crumpled equation paper.

How I would try to multiply and add whilst you would divide and

subtract our relationship.

How you could never quite let me go.

So go ahead, Tell me Again,

Tell Me you love me 360 degrees.

My Equinox Lover

The witching hour

Our midnight equinox secret

The raven blood and white magic that bound us together

Your love a mood stone of contrasting colours how you could not love me just black and white

A star name

An in the next life darling,

The universe of us rotating,

Parallel lines aligned, the stars finally coming together,

Oh, won’t you love me until the sky turns black and the stars scatter.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Sunshine Blogger Award

Thank you, Meher at thescribblingssite.wordpress.com for nominating me for this lovely Sunshine blogger award! Meyer has such a wonderful blog so I recommend you go follow her.

RULES:

  • Thank blogger(s) who nominated you in the blog post and link back to their blog.
  • Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.
  • Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.

MY ANSWERS TO MEHER’S QUESTIONS:

1.What’s the one thing you like about this blogging community?

The one thing I like is that everyone is always very welcoming and supportive of their fellow writers!

2.How would you describe your blog in just one sentence?

A spoken word diary of my life (love) experiences.

3.Does your blog specifically aim at something? If yes then, what?

Mainly poetry, poetical dialogue and spoken word contemporary poetry. I like to document experiences through words whether that be in my love life or an experience travelling or whilst immersed in nature. Mainly lots of poetry about relationships though! I am working on a collection of poetry titled, This Wild Rose: The Lovers & Leavers.

4.What’s your favourite junk meal?

Krispy Kreme doughnuts.

5.Do you read? If yes, what’s the last book you read?

Yes, I adore reading! I have done two English literature degrees so reading is a big part of my life. The last book I read was Woman’s Hour by Jenni Murray and Sad Girls by Lang Leav.

6.According to you, what can we (as common citizens) do to make this world a better place to live in?

To stand up for good and voice against the people who spread hate: racism, sexism, etc. The world still has a long way to go, but we should always choose love and positivity.

7.How would you define the word ‘peace’ (in your own words)?

Peace is having the freedom and human rights to obtain that peace within yourself which allows you to be the best human being you can be.

8.Do you think it is important to have a purpose in life or do you think there cannot be a specific purpose to life at all?

I think it is a gift to be alive and that we create our own purpose. I also think people should not fret about what their purpose is and should instead focus on what makes them happy and filling their life with love and light. For me, that is enough.

9.Who inspires you the most?

The amazing female role models in the world. For me, feminists such as Emma Watson and the suffragettes who paved the way for votes for women in the UK. I am a major self proclaimed feminist!

10.When in dire situations, what/who keeps you going? My brilliant family, my gorgeous friends and all my bookshelves and bookcases filled with books. I also find writing very therapeutic and a good way to process difficult situations or emotions.

11.What improvisations would you like to make in your blog (if any)?

I’m still working on having a photography page on my blog and more poetry content! I would love to post a poem or two a day. I haven’t posted for a while!
