from my poetry book


Dear readers,

I typed these out on my typewriter for you.

I hope you enjoy my work and the effort I put into creating poetry books for people like us who still believe in the magic of books.

Holding a book and reading someone’s heart and soul is precious to me. I probabably believe in books more than humans. You see, people have this way of breaking your heart, letting you down, whereas a book can connect you to a whole other world that may or may not dissappoint…I just want to express my gratitude to you for reading my work.

I know the world doesn’t believe in poetry. When I tell people I write poetry and I’ve published books, most of them nod their head. I’m not going to tell you how people think, or what they think, or even if they think at all.

I believe in words and poems. It has helped me and nurtured me throughtout my life. It has been my companion. The world is lonely and as a writer and poet it is even lonelier…to constantly hear these thoughts and voices to tell you to write, well, it’s fucking exhausting, but I always strive for the best in me. If that’s not good enough for acadamia, or you, or magazines, or publishing houses, that’s fine. I’m cool with that. I don’t mind rejection letters, it grounds me. I don’t want false praise. Sometimes I’m not that good, sometimes I could be wise. 

This is the first day of a new chapter in my life. 

I hope for the best for me, for you and for the chaotic world we live in.

Taking some time off from WordPress, be back soon.

    1. Meg, you are lovely to me in so many ways with your words that touch me deeply. It’s this connection we have that I must admit I feel intensely. It happens with a handful and you would be an extension of me in another life. Xxx thank you for your presence & honesty. Love you back xxxxxx
