Hopeless Crazy Love

In celebration of the #WorldPoetryDay, I’m re-blogging my very first post. I wrote this piece back in 2009 – when poetry found me again. I honestly can’t believe it’ll be six years this year… feels like yesterday, yet so long ago at the same time. Which one of YOUR poems is the most significant to you, and why?! Please feel free to link your poem in the comments section below – I’d love to read it. Happy World Poetry Day! – Noora

Echoes and Reflections

Two poets
Two muses

Enjoying life
Reading Neruda
Tasting consonants
And vowels
Fine words
Perfectly placed

Two poets
Two muses

Naked
Except
For the jewelry

Her hair
Slightly tangled
Morning mist
In my eyes

Two poets
One poem

Escaping
Exploring
Hopeless
Crazy
Love

Two worlds
One language

Unwritten story

  1. My favourite line is “tasting consonants…” What a striking image! I’m so glad you discovered poetry again. You’ve clearly got some beautiful lines in you! Thanks for sharing 🙂 I only started writing properly again in January of this year, and look back with similar nostalgia on some of my earlier poems like Green Eyes – Part II. I hope I will still be around in 6 years to look back and see how far I’ve come. Thanks for such an inspirational post, and wishing you all the best in your writing journey! Make you write for manymanymany more years to come! 🙂

    1. Hey Yusra, and thank you so much for your kind words. I’m thrilled that you enjoyed “Hopeless Crazy Love”. It’s not my favorite poem (out of my own stuff), but it truly has sentimental value for me… writing the poem opened up such an inspiring chapter in my life.

      I’m so glad you’re writing poetry, Yusra. You have a wonderful voice. Please, keep on writing. I just followed your blog, and I’ll be back to read some of your other poems very soon.

      Love and inspiration
      Always

  2. I had no idea it was World Poetry Day, and what a lovely offering you’ve given here. I especially love…

    “Naked

    Her hair
    Slightly tangled
    Morning mist
    In my eyes”

    So beautiful! ❤

    I would have a hard time finding a poem of my own to share that is most significant to me – so much heart goes into each and every one, but one of the first poems I wrote after beginning my blog was "As I Awake" https://ramblingsfromjewels.wordpress.com/2012/04/15/as-i-awake/
    I didn't know at the time if that was really even considered "poetry," I just wrote and the words came out that way. 😉
    My poem "Pendulum" was written after a huge heartbreak back in 2013, and is one that is still significant to me…

    1. Every day is a “Poetry Day” in my world. 🙂

      I’m SO glad you enjoyed “Hopeless Crazy Love”, Julie. I have to admit that my fingers are itching to edit the original, BUT…. I’m not touching it. lol.

      I know what you mean… It’s like picking a favorite child, lol!

      Thank you so much for sharing “As I Awake” and “Pendulum” – I already left you comments.

      You’re multitalented, btw! I love your photography as much as I love your words.

      Have a lovely day!

      1. I know what you mean about itching to edit… there were a few things I saw in the two poems I shared that I though “I should tweak these jut a bit,” but I’m going to resist!
        Thank you sooo much for your kind words! ❤
        Hope you have a lovely day too, my lovely friend!

    1. You’re way too kind, Kimberly. HCL is a significant poem to me because it was an opening to a beautiful era in my life. I’ve never shared my MOST significant poem here.

      Sending you MUCH love.

    1. That’s okay, Neha!! I’m thrilled to know you enjoyed it. I think WP doesn’t allow us to re-blog reblogs but only original posts – not sure. :))) Wishing you a lovely day, my friend.

  4. I love the economy of words in this poem and how it allows the imagination of the reader to paint its own picture in the mind, so happy to read your “first” Noora!
