I’ve decided, if I remember, that once a month, the last Thursday of each month, will be poetry week. Sometimes my own if I can dig something interesting up. I used to love poetry. I’ve gotten away from it over it years. Lately, I’ve been getting back into it again.
I wrote this a few years ago when I was trying to start a story with a suicidal protagonist. She wrote song lyrics and poetry that she sometimes performed at an open mic night. It was a lot of fun to get to use some of my poetry and song lyrics from over the years. The story has it’s issues, but it has some of the best characters in it that I’ve ever written. If I ever make it to book 3 in my vampire series (a rewrite of this book), I still want to start it off with this poem. The parts in bold are the parts I kept for the original draft of the story.
