Poems from the heart is an emotional poetry book on real or fantasy experiences by me or people I have come to know. I wrote my first poem when I was 12. I think that behind every poem lies a deep emotional story. This is a big help when it comes to writing novels as I can feel every bit of a poem.

Overview

Poems from the heart is an emotional poetry book on real or fantasy experiences by me or people I have come to know. I wrote my first poem when I was 12. I think that behind every poem lies a deep emotional story. This is a big help when it comes to writing novels as I can feel every bit of a poem.

The cover consists of a heart with a dagger through it cracking it and a halo round one side. I think this cover describes every emotion within the book. For example the heart is where the poetry comes from, the dagger represents the anger and the hate, the crack represents weakness (a heart will crack under pressure) the redness of the heart is the passion and happiness and the halo represents the strength and the mending of a heart. The fear is represented by the crack as well. Most of these poems are based on true life experiences. My favourite poem is "My saviour dreams" as it describes me, I feel that I waste my mind working like a robot in a factory when my ambition and passion for writing is so strong. I decided that poems from the heart should be my first published book because it was poetry that I started off doing. I have set out the poems in order going from weak to strong, love to hate and back to love. I thought it was important to show a strength coming from a weakness and that love and hate can be so similar. That fear can make you more weary of the world and the people in it. I have really enjoyed writing poems from the heart as I am enjoying writing my novel. The poems towards the end of the book i.e. The London bombs, my single last tear and my saviour dreams are some of the most recent ones. I just hope that people will enjoy reading them as much as I have enjoyed writing them.
