DESERT FLOWERS – My Chapbook of Poetry

 

I’ve finished. My chapbook of poetry, Desert Flowers, is complete! I worked so hard on this and spent ages deliberating on everything from the card and paper I used and the thread to bind it, the front cover and of course the poems inside.

I’m super nervous for people to actually read my poems but it feels pretty damn good to have my name in print! If you would like to buy one I’d be eternally grateful, they are £5 a copy and here is a link to my etsy shop where you can buy it!

Thank you and I hope you enjoy my poetry!

CRIME SCENE ROMANCE – A VALENTINE’S POEM

CRIME SCENE ROMANCE

I fell
in love with the colour
of your blood
mixed
with mine —
a deep garnet
red — almost
black
except when you
looked
at it in the light
streaming
through the
broken
glass window
that I smashed
aching
for your
attention.

We own
the biggest
knives
you’ve ever seen
and I nail
razor blades
to the door
handles
to stop
you leaving
and

our welcome
mat says
love —
inside
a pretty little
heart
like the ones i draw
all over
your chest
when you’re sleeping —
while the kitchen
tiles are
splattered
with the inside of my
stomach
and the smears
of your attempts
to clean me
all up.

i stitch
up soft palate —
ruptured
from all those words
I couldn’t
say
while my
twitching
aorta artery
pumps
in the syllables
of your name.
I have always
been a crime
scene,
but with you —
It’s all so
much more

romantic.

If you liked this rather violent but romantic poem, stay on the look out for my pamphlet/chapbook of poetry that I’ll be bringing out in May!

POETRY FOR CHRISTMAS- BONE, NEMJA & HOME

Poem from Bone

(A late Merry Christmas to those who celebrated!) 

For Christmas, I just wanted to share some of the beautiful poetry books I received from my family. Of course I asked for more books and DVD’s to add to my piles of them already in my room. One day my ceiling might actually collapse from all the books I have up there…

The three books I was most excited for were the poetry books I asked for, Bone, written by Yrsa Daley Ward, Nejma, written by Nayyirah Waheed, and Home, written by Clementine Von Radicks.

HOW I LEARNED TO LOVE POETRY

My love affair with poetry is a rather new one. Going back only a year ago, the only poetry I read was what I was made to read at school or college. And I really hated it.
So If you’d said to me at the start of this year that I’d spend most of it reading and even writing poetry, I wouldn’t have believed you, but it’s the truth, and I owe that to a number of things…
