Poem #29: NOT Waiting Around

I haven’t seen you for months.

Today when I saw you,

with your warm blue

eyes and sandy blonde

hair, I almost died inside.

Love pulsed through

my veins, but I turned

my back before it showed.

When you gave

me your number

8 months ago, I

hope my shaking

hands didn’t give

anything away.

He only talks to me when

I talk to him and I quite

frankly, I am sick of it.

If he is not going

to make any effort,

then I’m not waiting

around for him to

get his shit together.

Four Excerpts of My Wattpad Story ‘Shades Of Blue’

1. “She ran herself a bath and put some baby blue bath salts in it. ย When she finally got out of the steamy water she went to bed and dreamed of a certain boy with indigo eyes and a soft smile.”

2. “Ciel couldn’t remember how he had ended up in hospital. All he knew was that one minute he was thinking about Skyla and the next he was in a fatal position on the floor of his bedroom crying out in pain. He looked at the cyan painted walls and tried to lift his head up, but the pain was unbearable and the world around him turned to stars. Then it faded to black.”

3. “His lips, which were once strawberry red, were now azure blue and his inky blue eyes that stared vacantly up at them had turned to pastel blue.”

4. “Skyla was sobbing so much that she bit her lip to stop the sound from escaping. She bit down so hard that it turned a blueberry colour…”

Insights: My Book; The Girl With The Purple Hair

The next ‘Insight’ is of my first self-published novelette/short story book ‘The Girl With The Purple Hair’.

โค๏ธ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ

I originally posted ‘The Girl With The Purple Hair’ on Wattpad on the 6th of November, 2016. (https://www.wattpad.com/story/89294422-the-girl-with-the-purple-hair-โœ”%EF%B8%8F). I wanted to see if people would read my story and surprisingly, as of today, 15th October, 2018, it has about 68,800 views and 14,580 votes.

I self-published it on Lulu.com in May, 2018.

The Girl With The Purple Hair is about a 17/18 year old shy mute girl called Violette, who has dyed her hair purple (obviously ๐Ÿ™„ย ๐Ÿ˜‚ย ) and a sensitive 18/19 year old boy, Benny, who’s falling for Violette more than ever.

Violette and Benny have known each other for about eight years and have been friends ever since. When she starts getting bullied, Benny quickly sticks up for her and is furious when people start attacking her and he tries everything he can to protect his girlfriend.

Violette decides she is ready to learn to speak again and invites Benny to go to speech therapy with her. This is a story of healing and over coming toxic people in the form of bullies.

Insights: My Book; My Dreamland

This is my second self-published poetry book ‘My Dreamland’ and it’s a bit different to the others.

โค๏ธ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ

‘My Dreamland’ is about a 17 year old girl who dreams about her perfect relationship for a year. It’s about her crush who she hopes likes her as much as she likes them. It’s representing first love and infatuation; some would call it ‘puppy love’ ๐Ÿ˜Š

I’ve split the poems up into four sections; Winter, Summer, Autumn, Spring and for each season I’ve written about 16 poems…

Insights: My Book; When Daisies and Thunderstorms Collide

I haven’t explained very much about the first poetry collection I’d ever self-published and it’s very special to me.

โค๏ธ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ

When Daisies and Thunderstorms Collide is about a young lady ย (the Daisy)ย who falls for a young man (the Thunderstorm).ย It’s told in the perspective of a daisy who describes aย thunderstorm as the gentle, pattering rain, the rolling thunder, the rainbow on dark days, etc. She also finds herself to be uninteresting and paints him as the beautiful one.

Somewhere in the middle of the book she shows her disappointment that the young man is not reciprocating her affections or making any effort at all. The daisy also finds herself becoming slightly bitter saying that he only talks to her when she speaks to him.

Towards the end she realises that actually she can do better than him and gradually starts to distance herself from the thunderstorm.

By the time the poetry book ends, she discovers that, not only can she be as delicate as a daisy, she can also be a raging thunderstorm in her own right.
