When Poetry Meets Pain...
Happy Wednesday! I hope everyone is having a wonderful week full of love, light, and positivity! As many of you may know and some who may not, I LOVE poetry! Poetry is definitely my favorite genre of reading with mystery being a super duper close second! I featured this picture that I took Monday in my living room (shoutout to my iPhone for the angles!) because I really love each of these authors! I believe that they are each a force to be reckoned with! I have been writing poetry for many many years and it has always been my comfort zone. Sometimes, I find myself going so deep that I am crying by the end of the poem, but that's okay because with poetry, every emotion must be REAL. It must be YOURS. It must be BELIEVABLE! Because I know there are so many amazing poets out there, I wanted to hold an "A Dose of Poetry" contest for a chance to win a fun self-care bundle filled with amazing prizes! Read below for the tea!
guidelines & rules.
I love to keep things positive and fun, but I also understand that pain is an extremely important part of poetry and most importantly, healing, which is why I love poetry so much. Each of the amazing authors that I featured in the above photo exemplified a piece of pain, a sense of longing, heartbreak etc...which made their work relatable, believable, and most of all, moving. For this contest, I want you to dig deep and reveal your deepest pain in the form of poetry. I want to FEEL something. I want to be in that moment with you. I want to cry. I want to heal with you. Don't hold back those painful emotions or feelings.
