a poem about why

In these words
I seek something I believe that they can never give to me,
But each time,
I feel a little bit better.
Not much.
But enough to keep me
Picking up my ageing pen
And writing to the god
Who told my hands to listen
To my head.


I just wanted to thank you all so so deeply much for the kindness you've shown to me in my recent literary posts. It delights me to know that you've all been appreciating them!

I want to get to know you a bit better, so please tell me a bit about yourselves in the comments below :)

  1. Your poetry is lovely! A travel post sounds fun. I am terrible with talking about myself. I am an artist, I paint and draw. I'm also a huge introvert.

    How can we not love the beautiful words you write down? <3 I love travel posts; please give us details about everything you saw. :)
    Oh dear, you want me to tell you about myself? Like Skye said, I never really know what to say about myself. I'm rather odd, I can tell you that. I change a lot depending on my mood. Sometimes, I can be super lazy and other times I overwhelm myself with so many projects and events that I can't keep up. I like things a certain way (except when I could care less), and like to be put together at all times (except when I look like a bum). I like to write, and I have mastered the art of procrastination. I also hate/love people (and pretty much everything else), depending on my mood. But, people online are always better than people in person. :)

  3. Thank you so much! I'm also majorly introverted. It's so cool that you're an artist :)

  4. I love poetry so much. I love how it's a part of a person's subconscious thoughts written in a few picked words. If you doubt how beautiful you write, remember that I love your pieces! They're so pure and real! Keep writing! <3

  5. Aw Mia, thank you so much! There's something very special about poetry alright <3

  6. Thank you so much Aliah! I love your description of yourself! It's so true that we're better online- perfectly polite, perfectly dressed, expressed. Oddness is good!! Yay for writing <3

  7. Your posts have been so much fun to read! Glad to have found your blog and connected with you through it! <3

    This little poem is the cutest. It sums up how I feel about writing too. I never seem to get the right words to match how I feel but I always come back to write more because writing heals my mind.

  8. Aw thank you so much! I'm glad to have met you too :D


  9. You're so good at writing poetry! I'm jealous because I totally suck at writing one lol. I used to hate poetry before because it reminds me of my high school memories where I had to recite the poem I wrote in front of the whole class.


Thank you for your words x
