Hi Everyone! This next poem is a collaboration I did with Sa from Culture Shocks. . It’s a little spooky, just in time for Halloween! . . I hope you enjoy. . . We call this poem. . . “A Boy Named Gullible.”
This began like any other strange night. . . As an innocent child laid in bed, a full moon rose on him through the window. Quiet winds whispered nothings in his head.
“Come away, come away, little child. Come to my home. Won’t you stay a while?” “I have some cookies with brown chocolate chips” A spirit said with a cheshire smile.
The sweet aroma tickled the child’s senses. His outreached hands clasping in cold thin air, Desiring a savory fresh dessert. Getting his hopes up, “It’s just not fair!”
He shut his hungry mouth with a smile, which soon dissolved into bitter disgust. His chocolate treats were really dirty worms That tasted like dark . . .slimy. . . filthy must. . .
Betrayed by the spirit’s deception. Dejected. He spat the worms at the dark wall. Evil gold eyes gleamed in the shadows, To seize its prey: seize him one and all. . . The boy that we have named. . . “Gullible.”
Hi Everybody! This next poem is a collaboration I did with Winnie from Musings. It’s a story about a lover’s agony. I start the dialogue as the first lover, and then she replies in italics as the other. . . I hope you enjoy. . .
“A Lover’s Agony”
As I laid down in bed, I closed my eyes. I drifted to sleep thinking about you. The girl that I used to know from my past. . . And I wonder. . . Do you think of me, too?
”I woke up in the wee hours of the morning Restless in my sleep Beddings and pillows strewn across the floor Thoughts of you invaded my mind For your visage, I wish to espy in a flash”
I left you, my dear, in a foreign land. And with you I left my heart, mind and soul. Tell me, do you miss laying hand-in-hand? Without you, dear, I’ve never been whole.
“How long can I carry this unbearable ache? A sudden deep yearning rendering me helpless Which I tried to repudiate in my waking state But my willful heart’s a traitor”
It pains me to think of how I can’t go back. My cowardice preventing me in telling you there’s never going to be us. My amour, I found someone who filled the void you left. I owe it to you, to tell the truth, but I don’t know where to start…
Today we are looking at a special Jeremy Fragrance interview, the number one fragrance Youtuber and video blogger. What do fragrances and poetry have in common? And what advice does Jeremy Fragrance have for fellow bloggers?
Jeremy Fragrance Interview & Blogging Tips | September 5, 2018.
What to Choose?
Joey: Let’s start off with the obvious question: What are the best fragrances for poets, men and women, and why?
Jeremy: I say some nice Whiskey and Smokey Tobacco Fragrances. Creates an atmosphere of an Oldschool Gentleman that thinks about life and what he has seen in life. Good example: Lord George by Penhaligons.
Joey: So you’ll coming out with your own specially designed fragrance that will be for sale in the near future. Do you have any specific, “poetic” tag lines in mind for the promotion of your new fragrance?
Jeremy: No we keep it very strict simply efficient, we don’t do much on logos or fancy poetry lines all we want to do is to help people smell absolutely modern, very sexy, long lasting and save them time with the trust in our brand.
Joey: Now, when you’re creating your videos, you’re doing something that is actually quite similar to what we do with poetry. You stand up in front of a mic and speak out words; words that are designed to create excitement and emotion in your viewers. So what tips would you have for us poets in creating that same sort of excitement and emotion inside the readers?
Jeremy: Speak with your heart, which is hard these days.
Joey: Nonetheless, you have such a successful video blog – the top of your genre. So what one tip would you give to fellow bloggers who want help growing their blogs?
Jeremy: I made it my way, I wasn’t happy with the current market situation and did it how I wanted to see it as an end consumer. you can take this every market and business idea, this mindset.
Final Question of the Jeremy Fragrance Interview.
Joey: So now, one final question. What song or poem, lyrically, has really touched you the most and why?
Jeremy: A song by the Western Star who sang I hurt myself today, you feel every sentence he sings from his heart. its johnny cash.
