June Bugs- a poem

June bugs

flutter at my window,

their reminder

that the cold

may seize to exist.

 

June bugs,

may I ask

where you go in

the winter?

Do you hide?

I guess the winter’s

wrath may

be too much

to handle

with your

fragile

little

bodies.

 

I sometimes

feel like you,

June bugs.

My dragonflies

can belittle

me too

until my

thoughts

scramble

and my limbs numb.

That must happen

to you too.

 

Thank you,

June Bugs.

I’m not

alone.

Your Average Poem

This is your

everyday ballad

about a girl who

breaks her

own heart

pining for

someone quite

out of her reach,

your average poem

about lies

and deceit

since her life is quite

ordinary

without the thought

of him

or without his touch.

So yeah,

her life is quite

ordinary

no more emotions

no more hopes

and dreams

because her fantasies

tumbled down

one

by

one

by

one.

Just your average

occurrence.

Early in the Morning-a poem

He wakes me

early in the morning

to tell me

that he loves me,

but at night

his eyes go distant,

his coffee grown cold

and his food left untouched.

 

He whispers

songs in my ear

of utter despair,

but am I the one to blame?

 

Early in the morning,

he packs his backs

and cuts my heart out.

I should’ve known

by the sadness

in his eyes

and the loss of emotion

in his voice.

 

But it is not I to blame

because he caused himself

the great shame.

Art in Bloom-a poem

She has

roses in her eyes

and sunflowers

on her thighs.

 

Grass grows

green in her hair

and her smile

crashes into the

ocean waves.

 

She helps sprouts

flourish

with just one

prick of her

finger.

 

She sings with the birds

and at night

paints the stars

in the sky.

 

And when the

sun rises the

next morning,

she does it

all over again.

 

Reviews

Loves Me Not, Loves Me by Brittany Julian-Review

Hi, everyone!

Today I have the opportunity to review Loves Me Not, Loves Me by Brittany Julian.

The poetry book is split into two sections: Heartbreak and love-just like the title. Each poem follows the lines of Brittany's love life but easily traces the story of the reader's love life.

The poetry was beautiful and honest. At points, very heartbreaking. All of the emotions just flooded out of the pages. It's truly beautiful.

I think this book can help anyone who's gone through a rough time in any relationship. It gives you a sense of knowing that everyone has experienced some sort of heartbreak.

This book is perfect for the fans of The Princess Saves Herself in This One by Amanda Lovelace.

Thank you Brittany Julian herself for contacting me about her book. And thank you to everyone for reading.

Love always,

Hannah

Dark Road-a poem

She might’ve

strayed from

the path,

a road less

less taken

but for a valid reason.

 

Not in particular,

but she finds

patterns

in each

constellations.

 

Each star

as bright as the

other or

each a little

gentler on the eye.

But whatever constellation

it may be,

she still walks

down the

dark road

without a flashlight.

Little Cottage-a poem

There is a little cottage

buried deep in my memories.

Wall to wall

shelf upon shelf

books

and papers stack high above the ground.

 

My old ideas

and young as time,

but I still recall

the feelings

those stories would

to others

and myself

I would sit

and write

for days at time.

Knowing sometime

all of my writings would

make sense.

And yet,

years have past

and some ink smudges

I’m not able to recover.

 

Burnt journal entries

and thrown away memories,

but still stored

in the back of my mind.

May I never

forget

the first time

I held a pen

or felt crisp

paper between my fingers.

 

May I never forget what it

felt like when

all of the breadcrumbs

underneath my bed

dissolved into dust.
