There's been a ton of hype over poems, especially those who read New Adult genre. The novel Slammed follows poets, more or less and they go to slams and write to each other. It's a beautiful thing, honestly. Here's the issue- I suck at writing poems and don't really like it. It's freaking hard! So I found an exercise that kind of helps to make a possible poem.
Don't make fun of mine! Full disclosure here- I'm not a poet at all and I chose a topic that I wanted to see if it would even work. No laughing aloud in these parts!
Sitting at my desk
Typing on the computer
I honestly don't want to be here
Is it time to go home?
Work is dreadful
The papers are stacked waiting to be sorted
I can't muster the energy to do anything
Nobody here wants to work today
Moral is low
Seconds tick by slower than usual
Time is messing with me
I'm ready to go home.
TADA. Poem written. I know it's boring but still, it worked. I count that as a poem. You guys do it, I'm interested to see what you come up with. Honestly every subject works. Even writing about work can turn into a sad poem. Really sad. Did I mention I hate work. HAHA.

What Readers Have to Say...
"An absolutely heart wrenching read that shows us that at times no matter how much we hope, darkness will find its way to win. "
-Blogger's From Down Under for A Reliant Love
"So this book is the ultimate love story. I like how two ordinary people who is so different and still so alike in so many ways can overcome everything together."
-Angelica Berglund for For The Love of Hockey
"I never thought I would read a "zombie book", much less love one. The Last Legacy really surprised me. Even with the whole people-eating-people thing, it was a fantastic book"
-Melannie S for The Last Legacy
"I could not wait to start book two. If this book was as good as book one, then I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. It wasn't as good as book one...it was better. "
-Keely Retchloff for Finding Sam
"The powers, the love, the excitement, the drama kept me so enthralled. If you are looking for a GREAT series about true love and mythology, look no further... I wish I could rate 10 stars! Definitely recommend this whole series to all my book loving friends!"
-The Book Blog for A Curse Books Trilogy
"For the Love of Ash" by Taylor Lavati was a rare 5-star read for me. I honestly find many typical romances rather dull and predictable. This was not the case at all here; there was nothing average about the romance, overall storyline, and the long list of supporting characters."
-Summer's Book Blog for For The Love of Ash
"Wingless isn't what I would normally pick up and read, but thought I'd try it out and I am so glad I did. The characters and "worlds" she creates are done so well that you can actually picture them and feel like you are there right along with the characters."
-JLH for Wingless
