Psyche

A beauty so hypnotic

Poses danger to your existence,

Unless it captures

The attention of a god.

 

He was so willing to rescue you

You spoiled girl,

He gave you riches

And lavish love.

He saved your life

But you still wanted more.

 

You lost him

You lustful lover,

Prove you love him

And maybe he’ll forgive you.

Prove you love him

And maybe you can have him back.

 

You’ve done all there was to do,

But even if you think the competition is over,

You’ll never win this battle

For the green-eyed monster

Is your mother-in-law.

Mon Cheri

Mon cheri,

It is you, j’adore

For your humor

And your caring heart.

It is you

And only you

Je t’aime

For the man

You have always been

You will become

You are.

It is you

And I love you for it.

NaPoWriMo 2013 Poem for the prompt of day 29.

I kept this one to give to my boyfriend on our 2 year anniversary.

I think he liked it 😉

May Day Announcements!

  • Yesterday was the last day for NaPoWriMo. It was so much fun! I successfully completed 30 poems in 30 days and completed all of the prompts (even though not all of them were completed on the exact day). What’s that you say? There was no poem for day 29? *Gasp* Okay, I decided to keep that one for myself. I wrote a poem that I’d like to give to someone special, and I know they frequent my blog to see what I’m up to, so I figured I’d just keep it private for right now. Maybe I’ll post it after I give it to aforementioned special person 😉 ! My personal goal was to do the consecutive 30 days with a poem for each day, but I made it 19 days in a row! Did you participate in NaPoWriMo? How did you enjoy it? Send me a link to your favorite poem that you did and I’ll be sure to check it out if I haven’t already 🙂
  • I created a blog related email address! I’ve been thinking about doing this for a long time and I finally decided to create one. Please feel free to send me comments, suggestions, any stories or poems of yours that you might like opinions on, or even if you just want to chat! I’ll take requests for poetry when possible, or we could even do a collaboration together if that’s something that you’d be interested in doing. Feel free to send me anything you’d like to share. I find it difficult to communicate with you wonderful people through wordpress because my computer takes forever to load my comments, so I don’t respond to nearly as many people as I’d like to. You can reach me at tipprtamara@outlook.com (I’ll put my email address in the sidebar as well 😉 ).
  • Lastly, I’ve mentioned before how much you guys mean to me, but I really would like to say it again! You guys inspire me with your stories and it touches my heart when you leave comments about your personal life and how certain words or phrases brought you back to a different time in your life. I love hearing these types of things and you guys really keep me inspired to keep writing and follow my dreams! You are all very wonderful people and I hope I’ve touched your lives as much as you have touched mine!

Sorry for the wall of text, I tried highlighting the main parts of it. Thank you for your continued support. I look forward to hearing from you!

Abomination

How do you loathe me? I forbid you count the ways!

You loathe me to the shallow and short lengths

Your body engages with abandon, when in sight

Against the beginnings of nonexistence and imperfect cruelty

You loathe me from the rear of never night’s

Subtle rule, by moon and natural light

You loathe me strictly, as women abandon immorality

You loathe me pollutedly, as I unbend after scolding.

You loathe me without the leniency you call to use

On your new joys, and without my experienced denial

You loathe me with a hatred you existed to create

Without your newfound saints. You loathe me with a choke,

Frown, laughter of your demise; and, if the devil declines me

You shall but loathe me worse during our next life.

Let Me Count The Ways…”; which can be found here http://www3.amherst.edu/~rjyanco94/literature/elizabethbarrettbrowning/poems/sonnetsfromtheportuguese/howdoilovetheeletmecounttheways.html

Successfully Green

It drives you

Moving upward

And onward

Fueling your energy

With enlightening ideas

On greatness

As you grow

And grow

Until the day

Your high spirits are so large

You can’t fit in your wallet

And you move onward

And outward.
