Don’t Miss This Great Poem – DENIAL

The Lonely Author


When I vow I will stop thinking of her
it’s because I can’t stop
When I say she is forgotten
the truth is, she is not
Look at me denying I am in denial
and I don’t know where to start
Perhaps I can deceive my friends
but I will never fool my heart
My brain continues to remember
what my heart refuses to forget
so I’ll continue to pretend
I’m not haunted
by the girl I haven’t met

Slightly to the right – poem by Ali Grimshaw

flashlight batteries


One step to the right

not a stretch, just a nudge

shift of weight to the side.

One step away, between

worry and what if?

Landscape of exhaustion

or a horizon of possibility.

Not a marathon, nothing to train for,

just one



Get your shoes on.

wonder is waiting.

But I Smile Anyway...

Day 17

Pose a question…

Okay, so you have written that fantastic post, poured your blood, sweat and tears into it… yet there appears to be no real engagement.

Here’s a little tip, always end your post with a question related to your content.

Give your readers something to think about, and answer back. It is always a great way to get that interaction going!

And when you have lots of decent comments on a post, (that are answered) people are more likely to add their thoughts!
