Morning. Hope you are all doing ok. Found this little poem in a word document. Getting dressed for a day of doing nothing. Please, if you do enjoy my poetry head over to my Patreon, where you can find lots of my other poems. Thanks for reading. What are your plans for today?
hangers click, handless sleeves reach out as i pull from the depths of my wardrobe a shirt – tangled, attached a black belt –
my book is on sale 14th February through to the 20th.
i self-published this book a few years ago. i don’t write much poetry on love anymore, but reading these poems again has gotten me inspired. a lot of the poems in La La Love were written when i was younger, using Tumblr as a blog, was in a long distance relationship, a toxic relationship, so the poems reflect much of that. i learnt from writing these poems about poetry, about myself as a person &poet. so im still very fond of them. thinking about the Tumblr days reminds me about then i loved writing and sharing my writing with people and i just wanted to be read and connect. then other shit took over and almost took the love away. i got burnt out. i don’t think ill not ever be in love with poetry, or with writing. it remains the one way i can have conversations and connect with people and make my voice heard.
