The Bohemian Poet

A collection of personal poems and ideas forged through madness and creativity!

Dearest Bohemians.

I want to share with you all a little piece of irony… So I have this blog, and I casually invite you all to come have a read and see what I’m up to. I’m so grateful for all the support and admiration I get from you. It really means a lot, but today I’m going to share a confession with you all.

I don’t read! Well, not very much.

I know, atrocious. I really wish I could, and I so badly want to be that bibliophile that own tons of books, reads all day, has a fantastic vocabulary and sense of grammar. Unfortunately, I get so bored with reading material, and I really struggle to find things that interest me. I do have some really great books on my shelf and on my Kindle that I’ve read and loved, but it’s an amount far too little for a writer.

My biggest struggle is concentration. That’s what often forces my mind to wander off to Utopia. That then leaves me neglecting a book, and so many good authors. This issue is so bad that I fall asleep in class when reading the set book, and that sort of attitude isn’t mine or one I want to continue. I love books, but…

So it’s my goal to start reading more, to allow me to write better. If you as Bohemians have any advice or recommendations on books to read, that I won’t neglect, contact me and I’d love to hear from you. You can also drop me a mail at admin@thebohemianpoet.com

Currently, I am divulging very slowly, for the second time, through The Perks of being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. So hopefully I’ll finish it soon and be a writer ready to take inspiration.

I know it’s been a while since I last included a poem of my own in a blog post. I mean that’s what I’m supposed to be doing here… bohemian POET, but I am still working on concepts and what not. I still want to get back to the two poem idea’s I got from my Capturing Emotions Project request. You can have a look at that over here.

Just pretend all this is poetry. 😉

Also, a special shoutout to Cameron Foster. He edited the image at the top of the post. He also has a YouTube Channel that you should check out.

Yours in Madness.

    Perks of Being a Wallflower was a great book for me! I’m excited you’re reading that. For a person who doesn’t read, I think you have fantastic vocabulary and sentence construction.

    I’d love to suggest books, but most recent read for me was in 2014. Fifty shades of Grey :))))) not much in terms of substance I know 🤣

      Haha, thanks so much Jason! I really appreciate that. So far I really am enjoying The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

      Ah yeah, I must say the fifty shades does not interest me.
