If

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.

In Emma World

With raking claws that scratch and snatch,

And blots my mind with thoughts pitch black,

Would you save me? Would you catch?

Under Pressure

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 🙂

I turn on

The faucet of thought,

To immerse myself in

Wisdom.

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.

Masterpiece

Happy Throwback Thursday, readers! Today I’m reblogging a poem originally posted in early March, about the emotional potency of music. I believe that any genre of music has the power to evoke strong emotional reactions and can also offer a place of relaxation, comfort, solace or energy to the listener at times when they need it most.

Audio artistry,

Phonic poetry,

Soundtrack of dreams,
