messed up

you mess up my head with poems

fuck up my life with songs

read my thoughts before

i grasp them. squeeze them

into verses. wet my skin

with some type of glory

from within. i think i have

lost the way to the rotary,

that fork in the road i

evade, that street that

blocks me from driving.

he kisses me in the dark,

turns on the lights

to see the shimmer

of my skin. he is in love

again, with every

part of my soul that glistens.

he exits and enters

like a king. i danced

just for him, twirled

curtsied and sang

just for him. and he

said he loved

my voice, when that

wasn’t what i wanted

him to notice at all.

he’s distracted with

soul mates. i’m exploding

on paper.

locked the door

and set my

soul on fire

with words.

no one here gets out alive, i joked.

screaming from my bed,

you’re fucking crazy.

pour me some vodka-

my son laughed

and hasn’t let go of Jim’s book

ever since I brought it home.

I’m trying to write a poetry book

that will make you cry

at least once.

I shout.

but everyone is locked in

their own room

and my coffee cup

is out of vodka.

      i wouldn’t say brilliant, but thank you! I love you too and your words do touch me as well. We can sit in a room anyway with a bottle of anything – not that picky! and chit chat all night long, if you ever come to my city, we’re doing it. xxx

      thank you so much Sara! Love your visits πŸ™‚ I love your blog I can’t like it anymore – something feels different. Also, please let me know when your book is available on amazon for my kindle. If you like paranormal romance, you’ll probably like my book Crush- available on Amazon. Hugs and nice to see you Everywhere! I can never catch up! πŸ™‚

        I know how you feel. You should be able to like my posts now, but even if you can’t, I usually post my poetry on ig anyway. So far Smashwords is still working on an agreement with Amazon, but you can still transfer the book directly to your kindle if you download the mobi file. I definitely love paranormal romance! Mine is urban fantasy and paranormal romance 😊😊. I’ve got your on my tbr list, so I’ll be downloading it soon!

        I am so lost with downloading books, I just buy them off of amazon, I have no idea how to do anything else. lol
        I don’t know how to do anything, pretty much a dinosaur. My 14 year old daughter had to show me how to DM on IG. lol
        and i’m not even sure i could redo it alone.
