Feature and Follow Friday (#23)

The Feature & Follow is a creative meme that allows bloggers to get to know each other, and gain more followers! It is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

If you would like, it would be great if you followed me via Email, GFC, Linky, Bloglovin, or Google+ (all on the right). Let me know in the comments if you did, leave a link to your blog, and I will comment and follow back! I always do, I promise! Thank you!

Q: Activity: Spine Poetry. Create a line of poetry with your book spines (take a picture). Not feeling creative? Tell us about your favorite poem.

I LOVE POETRY! Truly, I do. I write poetry for my high school's magazine. Well, WROTE poetry for my high school's magazine. I graduated a few weeks ago.

Anyway. Here is just ONE of the stacks of books I have sitting around my room.

My untitled poem:

These broken stars shall never fade
Into a transparent dust.
They burn like a phoenix,
Like poison down a victim's throat,
Their dark triumph long awaited.
The lone stars will never fall,
Though broken, they remain alienated.

a.k.a MINE. 



  1. That's awesome! I was never too good at writing Poetry. My answer to this weeks question is old favorite of mine.

    Happy Friday :)

  2. OOoh nice! I didn't get that creative! Didn't know what to do really because I couldn't see Rachel's example! Kind of following what someone else did!
