Poetry in progress

The sound of the music,
The touch of your skin,
Yet I still feel hesitant,
To just let you in.

I originally planned to share a full poem today. The above is part of a poem I started just under a week ago. I have 3 other verses but none of them feel quite done yet.

I need to remove words, change words and say it out loud to ensure it flows in the way that I like.

I love writing poetry. It might be simple and incredibly amateur but it’s also a true labour of love.

Like a lot of the writing I do, my poems capture moments, experiences and thoughts. I look back on old poems like photographs.

I don’t write poems very often but it’s refreshing to sometimes do something a little different.

H is for Haiku

Sometimes I even

Daydream about your embrace

That’s how good it is

Here’s something I wrote for someone but decided to share with you for Valentines Day instead. I have no plans for today aside from go to work, probably do a little bit of studying and then spend the evening watching Season 2 of Rumour has it on YouTube.

Or perhaps I’ll watch a romantic movie like ‘A walk to remember’, ’10 things I hate about you’ or maybe even ‘Say Anything’ because who doesn’t love an 80s classic.
