Go Ahead (Pt. 3 Of Stages)

Hiya,

So for this part of the Stages titled Go Ahead, I have molded a kind of continuation from Pt. 1, I Want Out, but solely from the other half’s perspective. I’ve been sitting on this part for quite some time now because it seemed like it was missing something. It wasn’t until recently that I realized it was the way that it was because my creative buzz for this part of the series intended it to be; short, sweet and to the point  🙂

Go Ahead (Pt. 3 Of Stages)

Go ahead
And replace the laughing memories with your cruelty

Go ahead
And erase that love between us like it never existed

Go ahead
And show the world who you really are

Go ahead
And completely freeze me out of your life

Go ahead
And forget the talks and dreams we painted for the rest of our lives

Go ahead
And nurse that bitterness until you feel warm at night

I’m no longer restless, choked up, or sad
So, go ahead because I’ll be the one celebrating in the end

 

As always, thanks so much for reading. I hope you enjoyed this post.  ^_^

Until next time,

Gia.

You & I (Pt. 2 Of Stages)

Hiya,

So for this part of the Stages titled You & I, I have incorporated three elements: the passing of a loved one, a friendship ending and a romantic relationship coming to an end. This installment ties in with I Want Out, but on a slightly different level because of the other perspectives included within this poem as well as the dual perspectives You & I offers to the reader.

You & I (Pt. 2 Of Stages)

You’re the only person I let see me cry
You’re the only one who stays up late talking with me on the phone when I can’t sleep

I can remember when we said our goodbyes on that stale, hot August day
I can remember the way the light in your eyes faded as you slipped away

You’re the first person I want to share my good news with
You’re the only one who understands my jokes with just a look

I want to stop you, chase you down, and make you change your mind
I want to go back to hanging out in the park and talking on the porch at night

Here’s a quick Book Review installment for a full serialized and narrative driven poetry book, titled: Dear Lover by Lori Jenessa Nelson. 🙂
Dear Lover,Dear Lover, by Lori Jenessa Nelson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lori Nelson elegantly captures snapshots of new beginnings, buttery romance, intimacy, and foreboding endings in “Dear Lover.” In my opinion, unanimous anxiety and panic attacks are sometimes the result of anything related to relationships, love, and connecting. Therefore, I must say that I really enjoyed the vulnerability, and sincerity aspects of Lori’s poetry. Moreover, she offers the reader waves of relief with speckles of spicy and quirky humor a midst the lover’s angst tale. Additionally, I enjoyed the steadily matched shift in the protagonist’s voice in each chapter and stage as she gradually begins to arc. “Dear Lover” sculpts a vivid journey from love to loss and from bargaining to a ventilating catharsis of reflection on lessons learned from past relationships. Overall, I felt this book parallels both the roller-coaster pitfalls of love and life. It has something to offer to everyone and I definitely recommend checking it out.

Thanks for reading,

Gia.
