Poetry and More

by Louise Goodwin

Hi and welcome to my website!

 I have been scribbling thoughts and rhymes ever since I was a little girl. These would be silly poems and little songs. I remember how I would dress up in my mother’s ‘fancy’ clothes and act or sing out my little songs in front of her mirror – when no one was around. Sometimes with my younger sister, together we would perform mini concerts for our parents.

This is just a few lines from 2 of the stanzas of a much lengthier poem I wrote earlier this year. It is brutal and it is to reflect my #metoo experience as a very young girl and how still, the memories haunt me.

Apart from being my fabulous brother, Bob is a writer of 7 novels so far and a number of plays of which some have been produced on stage with local production company on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland.

 

A lot of the poems and stories I have written over the years found their way to the trash bin. I have a problem accepting that what I write might be reasonable and somebody else may resonate with the content. I doubt my ability quite a bit.

I have long suffered from that little devil that sits on my shoulder and whispers doubts into my ear! So now here I am in the public domain putting it all out there for anyone to read. I am a little apprehensive to say the least and that little devil is chatting away to me even now.

Most of my poems reflect my thoughts on marriage and relationship breakdowns, those hard decisions we make on our life journey.
