The Surprise of Poetry

e26397c7fe425a5a91b89fa5e4d92929Before I came to university, I didn’t write much poetry. I’d been writing more in the past year or so of A-Levels, but before then I had written maybe one or two poems. They were all terrible. As in, I don’t have them anymore, they were strings of words strung together in no real sense, terrible. Or sometimes they were flat prose in poem form (which is probably worse than just flat prose).  Continue reading “The Surprise of Poetry”

HANNAH BROWN - acrostic poem

Wordcount: 90
If you can’t guess the prompt for this one…well… I’m not saying anything.



H is for happy, laughing aloud

A is for actions, fighting the crowd

N is for natural, no masks anywhere

N is for nervous, of the foes I bear

A is for angels, the ones up above

H is for home, the place I love

B is for brown, my hair colour too

R is for random; such a hullabaloo!

O is for opposite to what they say

W is for wondering the days away

N is for nicely finding my place; eventually, I hope, whilst the clouds I chase.


As always, feedback is appreciated! Thanks for reading! 🙂 

To Emily

Hi Guys! Sorry for not posting, I’ve been ill and busy. 😦 But here’s a poem for my friend Emily, sorry if you don’t like it/it’s bad.


You may not always be with me,

But I know you’re always there,

‘Cause you’re my best mate, Emi

And you know I’ll always care.


Like the vibrating dildo guy

And the chalky water trauma,

Our friendship has had its ups and downs

But we sail through the rough waters.


We may have different OTPs,

Perhaps the fandoms, too;

And we sometimes have our differences,

But remember that I’ll always love you!


Is it that bad? :3

You can also read it here on Wattpad. 🙂 Vote, perhaps? :3

Also, guys: this is my 40th post! Yay, look how far I’ve come! Thanks for all of your support, lots of love. 😛

Hannah 🙂

The Old Woman

First off’s, sorry for not posting in a while; I’ve been rushed off my feet!

Second of all, I hope you enjoy the poem I wrote. 🙂


The Old Woman

When I was walking my dog

The other day, in the Great British Weather

(IE: the pouring rain),

I saw an old woman,

Crossing the road.


She was unremarkable

In many ways.

Her hair, clothes, stance.

But her eyes;

They gave away the story.


There were crinkles at the sides:

Laugh lines.

But, then again,

Her eyes had a sadness in them;

As if they had witnessed a great horror.


I helped her across the road

And she said I should be on my way; so I went.

But when I got home, I realised that I should have stayed.

Because I never saw her again.
