Hello everyone, I have a new poem that I would like to share. This time I have tried to describe how it feels to be in a writing slump, which is something many of us experience every now and then, and how demoralising it can feel. I thought of this poem while I was on … Continue reading Poem – The Missing Words
Hello everyone, I have written another poem that I would like to share with you. It is about having such a long TBR list and confronting the fact that I will probably never reach the end of it.

According to pretty much everybody, January 2018 seemed to last forever, so I have decided to write a poem that I hope captures those feelings.
