Kim McInnis Biography

Hi, I'm Kim McInnis. I live in a small, non-eventful town in southern Ontario. I'm petite, dark-haired, half-Korean, and near-sighted, but mostly a dreamer. I might be invisible, but I have a hard time telling.

I write more as a memoir than for art. I keep journals, but something in metaphor and figurative words is a safe haven to me. Behind ...

Kim McInnis Poems

I Want

to be the face you wake up to
- to stay up late waiting for you
to curl up in your arms
- to feel your breath on my cheek


I'm sorry
that I'm not strong enough
to hide my anger
- frustration


Peaceful, Tranquil
Sleeping, Dreaming, Thinking
Night, Dark, Fear, Distress

From A Pond

I’ve been holding your hand for far too long now
- your palm is hot as a swamp
- your thick fingers turn my knuckles white


the painfilled notes of my song ring out
dripping ironically
broken in mangled gasps
sobbing as the car tears farther and farther away

Kim is a very good poet who has emotion coming out of her ears. To those like poetry hound who say her poems aren't good well they can take a hike. SHE ROCKS! ! ! . I hope you keep the poems flowing. Your biggest fan, Matthew Hyatt

I was told much the same thing when I was young, long ago. Well, so what? Age almost always rages at youth. And talent in youth is much rarer than in adults, keep writing. Do it for yourself.

To my great surprise, while deciding whether to comment here and spoil your day, I find another comment aalready here. You are NO poet. You may have a little talent, now and then things look so so and a smidgen more promising but overall you are cluttering up the site with plain dumb junk. As the previous correspondent notes, there is no effort put into these creations (or little) and there is nothing that even smells of originality. Yet you churn them out like an over-confident up herself wannabe poet. Perhaps you should find a different hobby as I don't think the kind suggestions of poetryhound will save the day. Read Witkovski (on this site and perhaps you'll get a laugh out of another one totally without talent. H

Sorry Kimberly but I just don't think this stuff is very good. You have a lot of emotion, which is good, but your poems are not original and you don't seem to have put much effort into crafting them. I think you should read a lot of poetry by established poets, find some that you like, get to understand why they are recognized as being great, and let them influence you. My two cents.
