Book spine poetry is always so much fun to do. Naturally, I was stoked that it’s been included as a challenge again this year. To see more poems, be sure to visit all the blogs linked up on Alexa’s post. Be sure to visit Alexa’s lovely co-hosts too who together made this year’s Love-A-Thon possible: Mel from The Daily Prophecy, Hazel from Stay Bookish and Cee from The Novel Hermit.
Without further ado, let me present to you an entire series of book spine poetry. My sister saw me dissect my bookshelf in a bid to compose a bunch of poems. She thought it’d be fun to join in too, so she did. I came up with:
- Secrets and Lies
- The Fix
- Broken Strings, Escaping Perfect
My sister contributed:
Secrets and Lies
Girls in pants
After summer, the girl from everywhere
Arranged beautiful, broken things —
Banished into the still blue
Like it never happened.
Say the word;
Second time around —
Secrets and lies —
Very in pieces.
P.S. I love you.
P.S. I still love you.
Broken Strings, Escaping Perfect
Hello? Zac and Mia?
Truest, your voice is all I hear…
Feeling sorry for Celia, the ex-debutante;
Too hot to handle second time around.
When reason breaks — these girls!
What would Emma do?
