Belle Marsh talks poetry

I think there is always a need for something of beauty in our lives. Something to enlighten, brighten up the day, raise questions or just for plain fun. Poetry enables a quick emotional tour into thoughts and ideas that make us question life, love and friendship.

I wrote From Behind the Mind from that perspective. It is about everyones journey toward self enlightenment and understanding, without being too heavy.

A comforting book, a questioning book and above all a book about the choices we make in our journey to self discovery. Here I have posted two of my poems, not in the book, so that the book comes fresh to the reader.

 Ms Money Penny

I am a keeper
I don't do he's not that into me
I'm not interested in flaky excuses
If you do not phone me
I'll to do the same thing twice
I have no time for the sort of men
Who aren't very nice
don't bother with that
Easy easy gleamed eye'd smile
it doesn't work on me
you can try it on other women
It's some people's cup of tea
because I am a keeper
I can wait and wait
I've seen your type come and go
their masculine allure abate
When your fat, still trying your moves
Pathetic as you pull
I'll have the kids, security
and you will be the fool
Play around and waste your time
Leave hearts shattered, broken
I care not for your company
That's why we haven't spoken

My cat

I love my cat,
Furry velvet patty pat
Brush me gently
Just like that
Pat, pat, patty, patty pat
Purry whirry sleepy cat
Paddy paws, tummy fat
Tatty, matty, latte cat
Silky paws, sat on mat
Milky whiskers, mices scat
Fatty, natty, catty cat
Silent, shifting pretty cat
Disappears, just like that
