From Behind the Mind by Belle Marsh

From Behind the Mind

by Belle Marsh

From the author:

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 everyone’s 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 are 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

I really enjoyed reading Belle’s stories and poetry. I felt a deep connection with the poems written about life experiences. The flash fiction was very creative. Each story had a thought provoking ending about life and choices.

I encourage everyone to read more poetry. It flows so beautifully and paints the world in vibrant colors.
