Follow Friday number 3

Follow Friday is a super awesome way to make friends and meet fellow bloggers in the blogosphere. It's hosted byParajunkee .

This week's feature is Angela from Angela's Anxious Life

So anyway it's time for this week's question:

Q. What do I do when I are not reading?

A. I blog... a lot. I also look after my mum and brother. I also have a passion for  motorsport. (No I don't know why I like watching people go around a track for a couple of hours but it's better than football.) I also spend a lot of time on Goodreads because it's a way to discover books without actually going to the shops. I love to write, it's an excellent way for me to write down how I feel. In fact I'll share one of my poems with you.

Why Won’t You Go?

I still hurt,
I’m still breaking,
You’re the reason,
I fell down today.

Why won’t you go?
Why can’t I leave?
There’s nothing here but ashes,
Soaking up the tears from my heart.

To die alone. It’s my greatest fear,
But how can I,  when you won’t go?
I’m trapped in a moment. For now and all time.
Go my love, just go.

Why can’t I leave?
You and I alone.
The memories resurface,
Choking me.

The pain owns me,
How did you guess?
I know.
You knew, you knew. You always did.

Why won’t you go?
What reason is there to stay?
You’re just a ghost. Of reality,
My dreams, they never stir.

When my world ends,
You’ll still be there,
Taunting, taunting, taunting,
Just to have a laugh.

You and I alone,
We own all the secrets,
But how do you tell what you don’t remember?
Say you remember me.

There’s a reason for this.
The madness is calling me back.
Tortured, tortured, tortured,
That’s all I’ll ever be.

Sense left me, forever ago,
The words drag. On and on and on,
It’s something. It’s nothing.
Why can’t you let me go?

So anyway if you leave your link I'll follow you back since my hand is nearly healed I'll be doing my fair share of hopping this week.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and for sharing your poetry with us. I'm not much of a writer and I have so much admiration for those who can write.

I also like your blog design a lot.

CharmaineElaine said...

@Bonnie I know but I do so love it. It really helps me to read more to know that I have a blog so people can read me rant. =P

Awww, thank you. I thought that I might as well since it so fitted in with the question this week.

Have a great weekend.

CharmaineElaine said...

@thefictionalbookhelf Not a problem, it's all in the spirit of FF. =D

It was a great opportunity to show people that I do more than just write blog reviews.

@bookworm1858 Not a problem. I read some people's writing and wish that I was half as good as them, I have great admiration for those who aren't afraid to put themselves out there.

Thank you, I spent ages trying to find a really nice one and then fell in love with this one. =)

Hopping through. I blog a whole lot too. I'm not a fan of motorsport but I'd agree that it's better than football.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I really like Goodreads too although I haven't had as much time lately to get on there.

CharmaineElaine said...

Not a problem. I haven't either. I've been really busy but I try to go on at least once a day just to update my book status.
