POETRY: Paralysation

Paralysation

I drifted freely through the air,

Content with never quite being caught,

Then I eased into your love and care,

My untrained heart began to be taught.

 

No label slammed upon my head,

And with a brave smile you agreed to it all,

Cadged like a bird was what I had dread,

But, your strength began to fall.

 

As we went on with the same routines,

You yearned to hold and to have me,

So, you burnt and stamped down your feelings,

‘Cause I was content with leaving it be.

 

We acted like lovers, some called us cute,

At times you believed my actions,

They weren’t a lie but I hid the truth,

My thoughts became personal captions.

 

Eventually it came, we both feel the same!

As my heart became unhidden,

I poured out my soul and offered you tame,

The lion into a kitten.

 

Then came the shock, the heartbreak, the rock,

That caused the realisation,

That you had stamped, burnt, and had got,

Into a state of paralysation.

 

It took me too long, to open my heart,

You can’t make yourself trust this action,

Now we’re back to just friends, with time apart,

Feelings undergoing retraction.

 

The lesson learnt here, is that the fear,

Can halt you in your path,

So hurdle and jump when you’re so near,

To find true happiness at last.

POETRY and PERSONAL POST: Breathless Break

Breathless Break

I see children sliding down a rich green slide,

While a blind boy plays piano with his mother by his side.

There’s buzzing, laughs, screams and cheeps,

As little brown birds hop around at my feet.

 

I feel the rays of golden sun as a breeze,

Swirls lightly around, I see dancing leaves.

As the music escalates, lingering laughs rise,

A pure level of delight, an atmosphere energised.

~ Hi fellow Writing and Education Enthusiasts!

It has been too very long, I must say. Not only have I missed the peaceful feeling of becoming immersed in writing and imagination, I have missed being here, as we support each others passions. I have been busy enjoying a much needed heavenly Summer, while I volunteer, work and see important members of my life. I hope you have all been well!

I am happy to say I am back for 2014! A year for traveling, studying, supporting, growing, exploring, and writing!

I hope you enjoyed my poem, Breathless Break, which was written in my lunchbreak outside, in this magical moment.

 

Sincerely Jody

PERSONAL POST & POETRY: Thank-you!

This post is dedicated to all the supporters I have already gained. It means so much to have other passionate beings sharing their passions with me, and encouraging me to pursue my dreams. So I now say to you all,

Thank-you

I always desired to start a site,

But it was constantly an ‘I might’;

Life is so busy, it’s hard to make time,

To sit down and create a much loved rhyme.

 

Passion flowing deep inside,

It seemed to only deeply reside,

No time to let the ideas out,

Let my growing desire shout.

 

But now, finally, here we are,

The amount of support surprises me by far,

I appreciate each and every one of you,

And I truly seek to support you too.

 

Lets grow together as passionate beings,

Support each other as we keep achieving,

Like posts, comment, and seek to inspire,

Show the world our voice as one big choir!

 

Sincerely Jody

PERSONAL POST: Developing Writer

Hi writing and education enthusiasts!

It had come to my attention that I had yet to publish a personal post about myself as a developing writer. So here is some background information about me and my passions!

I am currently studying a Bachelor of Education, and am undergoing a Writing for Children and Young Adult course as one of my many valued courses that the University has available. This course gave me the extra push to finally start this site, and I am proud to announce that I am extremely excited, to build relationships with you all and share my progress as a writer and educator.

I have a novel in progress, a dream to start and write a non-fiction in future, numerous educational short stories in progress, song lyrics and music created, and I spoil myself with time set aside to create a range of poetry.

Do you sometimes find it hard to set aside time from your busy lifestyle to nurture your writing passion? Trust me, you are not the only one. However, it is important we never give up on this passion. I hope that this site will encourage you all to find the time, and I look forward to hearing from you all!

Sincerely Jody

~ Dream big, strive for more and never give up!

POETRY: Broken

Broken

A broken vase, a fallen chair,

A broken heart, betrayal, despair.

 

A trust built like the tallest wall,

And now the bricks lay on the floor.

 

Salty tears, a broken plate,

Shattered trust, betrayal, hate.
