Poetry

I thought a poetry directory might be more helpful to my readers now that I have so many blog posts. 

New Poetry: Written since July 2016

“Scars” The first new poem I wrote after starting this blog in July 2016. A way to rip off the band-aid and start healing. It had been 11 years since I had written poetry. Spillwords published it in October 2016.

“Echoes,”  “Eighteen Years Later” About moving on from the past.

“One Night in a Coffeehouse” About passage of time and artistic expression.

“A Walk in the Rain” A poem about a journey through depression.

“Truths Left Unspoken” The title is self-explanatory.

“Love Me More (Taylor’s Song)” It’s a song I wrote for my novel, Jordan’s Sister.

“Waiting for You (Layne’s Song)” Another song I wrote for my novel, Jordan’s Sister.

College Poetry: Written while I was in college, sometimes for assignments and other times for personal therapy. This isn’t even all of them; it’s only the ones I’m willing to share.

“Shooting Star” The first poem I wrote in college.
