Me, Myself… And Everyone Else

Just a young Irish girl, looking for somewhere to share my poetry.

So I’ve decided to experiment with a new style, where I try and fit everything I went to say into four lines. I’m going to be posting a few examples of this, so let me know what you think. Does it work? If not, Why not? Should I just stick to longer poems? You tell me.

I’m going to freeze my tears

With my already-frozen heart.

And use the blocks of ice

To build a wall around my soul.

My dad guessed I was inspired by a song when I wrote this, which was right, but it wasn’t the song he thought it was, it was this one. I love the imagery used, and wanted to write something with similar sentiments but different ideas.

    Excellent but don’t just stick to 4 line poems. Mix it up a bit

    I’d never heard Cathy Davey before. What an amazing song! And your poem is excellent too 🙂
