While I Am Out

While I am out and busy writing my book, please allow me to entertain you with a little bit of poetry from my part. A long time ago I was asked if I could write love poems. Which, and I have to be honest here, was quite a challenge for me as I have always been more occupied with the occult, the bizarre, the macabre. As you’ll understand the poems I have written are not the standard issue love poetry, but it was the best I could do concerning the love theme. I do so hope you will like it. Here’s the first one.

Your Eyes

I wish I had your eyes
I’d put them in a jar
And every day I’d say
‘How beautiful they are.’

I kind of hate you
But I love you too

I wish I had your tongue
I’d put it on a plate
Place it in a cupboard
With everything I hate

I kind of hate you
But I love you too

You’re everything I love
That’s way beyond debate
You remind me of myself
Now that’s the bit I hate

I wish I had your hand
Just for good old times’ sake
Together we would walk
Hand in hand along the lake

I kind of hate you
But I love you too

I wish I had your heart
I would keep it next to mine
Our hearts would beat as one
And then everything would be just fine
I will have to make a choice with
Every piece that I cut off
‘Is it something that I hate?
‘Or something that I love?’

I kind of hate you
But I love you too

It’s A Book

Dear readers,

It’s been a while since I have last posted anything. That does not mean I have stopped writing, au contraire, it means I have been writing more than I have ever done. I got so inspired by the kind and friendly words of many of my readers that I decided that it was, indeed, time to write a book. A proper book for adults with a thick plot, intrigue, some horror and a more or less happy ending.

At the beginning of this year I started posting stories on WordPress and I found some incredible people whom I really look up to, who inspired me, who were and are far better writers than I am. Yet, they praised my work and complimented me. They helped me to go and I learnt a lot from each and everyone of you. I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kind words and inspiration.

You will probably not see me on WordPress a lot anymore, but I would like it very much to keep in touch with you. If you would like to keep in touch with me, too, please send me a message so I can add you on Facebook.

Once again, thank you very much and I hope to be digitally seeing you later.

Kindest of regards,

Felix Bent
