Biography of Karen Touzalin

I began writing poetry at age fourteen, it was inspired by love of course, that has been the catalyst for all my poetry to this day. I was given a copy of Sonia Sanches 'Love Poems' at seventeen and my world was changed forever. I discovered Pablo Neruda, Maya Angelou, Nikki Giovanni and loved the imagery captured in their words.

The stages of love, the flirtation, intensity, passion, selfless (agape) , loss of love, heartbreak, heartache and new love makes writing poetry cathartic. I hope anyone reading my poetry will enjoy them as much as I do writing them.

In this quiet place,
with only the sound of my own thoughts
I imagine life without you
and weep
