A Piece of Me…& Tess

I don’t know why I’m sharing this…but I’m just not going to think too much about it. *deep breaths*

One of the things I’d like to do this year is share a bit more of my writing on social media and, naturally, here. By this, I mean creative writing…duh duh duh.

This can be one of the hardest things in the world to do: letting a little piece of yourself float into the atmosphere to be judged by all who come across it. But, without risk, there is no reward, and I am proud of some of the creative works I’ve written and would love to have some actual people other than my family members read them.

So, here goes nothing…

This is a poem I wrote a looong time ago, when I first read Tess of the D’Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy (a GREAT book!). Tess, as a heroine, haunted me for a while after I read her story, and this poem came into my mind almost fully formed one hot, summer day. I’ve held onto it for years, tweaking it here and there, and I think it’s high time it saw the light of day. (Please be kind, I am really not a poet whatsoever!)

Thanks for reading, as always!
