My dears, I am so sorry I have been neglectful and not posted on here for awhile! The time has come.. to reveal where my creative energy has been directed as of late..
I’VE WRITTEN A BOOK!
More specifically, have been writing a book, before I even knew I was writing a book. Through the many poems you’ve read on Prep Pose Polish for the past two years, in my pointy one liner Instagram captions, on the back of countless napkins at coffee shops, in notebooks while on holiday, on scrappy bits of paper that lay forgotten at the bottom of draws, in the ‘notes’ section on my phone CONSTANTLY when unable to find a blank piece of paper or a pen.. These poems, are made up of sections of my heart and soul that have been collated and stitched back together. Laid bare and raw, in the hope to connect, give a warm hug or a comforting voice in the dark nights. Words to cry by, be empowered from, fall in love to and even stories to make you bite your lip with lust.
Entitled ‘Phoenix’ my debut book of poems will probably break your heart, but then aims to fill it up whole.
Within my 25 years of life, I feel I have lived a few lives. I’ve always felt older than I am. Yes, my taste in music and poison of choice, jazz and a gin and tonic, are straight out of the 1920’s, so I am probably even in the wrong time altogether! But no, I mean I have had a lot of life happen, in a short amount of years.
I have loved, I have lost. I have given, I have been taken from. Taken for granted. Taken through hell. Been broken. Been rebuilt. A good girl. A bad girl. A happy girl. A girl who almost wasn’t here at all.
Now, I come to you as a woman. A little bit smarter, a hell of a lot stronger, a Phoenix reborn from the very walls that tried to burn her down.
I invite you into a private space, the corners of my mind that have hurt me greater than any hurt I have been inflicted, which is saying something.
Welcome home, pull up a comfortable chair, a cup of tea, or a gin and let your wings unfurl.
