Real poetry, I believe, comes straight from the heart.
Before starting my blog I only dared to show three or four close friends some of my poems (across several years), blushing madly as I did so! I was horrified at the thought that my poems would be judged. All of my poems are feelings spilled on to a page … raw emotion … how can that be judged?
I have found that when I am blissfully happy and content the bursts of inspiration are few and far between, although this is changing as time goes on in that I can now write more ‘positive’ work. Whilst I have a few personal favourites – uplifting gems – my best poems, I feel, are those which were borne from pain and misery during a very dark time in my past.
It means a lot that you visited my blog. Please come back soon or subscribe. Thank you 🙂
