I always love to see my books out in the world mingling with other amazing poets. Please be sure to tag me when you get your copies!! The Dogs I Have Kissed was my second collection which went on to win the Goodreads Choice for poetry in 2015 and is still available signed via the link in my bio👽 (photo by @danihersss)
Living in shades of blue
Mostly since I met you.
Before I was red
In the most brilliant shade.
But as the days of you passed,
I watched my vibrance fade.
I found comfort is pale pink.
Like the soft glow of dusk.
My radiance was hushed.
Captivating scarlett hues diminished.
Pastel pink mixed into starry night skies.
I soon became the exact colour of your eyes.
Venom from your kisses ran through my veins.
As my sharp aura changed.
Love brought nothing but pain.
Dreamed of galaxies far away.
I was once red, in the most brilliant shade.
Now I'm blue, watching us fade.
