Today is Throwback Thursday (nearly the weekend at last!), so I present to you today’s throwback poem: “If”.
“If” deals with the potential return of depression and the narrator’s fear that their loved one would not be able to cope with the effects or lend them the support that they need to get through it.
When we met in the summer
My heart was torn in two
But with love and devotion
You mended me like glue

Good afternoon everyone, I hope the new year has started well for you all! Mine has been a mixed bag so far, and my body is struggling to get back into the work routine, so I’m tired all the time… Alas, it’s not very conducive to good writing.
So in the meantime, I present Under Pressure for today’s Throwback Thursday! Posted back in February 2017, it deals with the pressures and judgments we face every day, both from society and from those around us. I hope you enjoy 🙂
Why treat me like some toy to play with when you’re bored,
Just to shut me in your toy box, abandoned and ignored?
No sparing any second thoughts, never your priority,
And when I knocked upon the walls you turned your key on me.
Hi everyone! I’ve been a bit lax with posting new pieces recently as I am struggling for free time, inspiration and motivation 😦 I’m hoping my imagination will take flight soon, but in the meantime, here’s another Throwback Thursday poem! Hope you enjoy 🙂
I open up my little brain
To rummage for ideas,
But all the shelves are empty:
It’s the worst of writers’ fears!
There are cobwebs in the corners,
And balls of tumbleweed,
But simply no creative thoughts –
The one thing that I need!
It’s Throwback Thursday! Nearly the weekend… Today’s poem was originally posted in February. It’s about the way in which our society encourages us to base our self-worth on looks and image – which can have devastating mental effects.
