Biography of Maddi Eden
♥ My name is Maddi Eden
♥ I'm twenty six and work in journalism.
♥ Poetry is a secret vice of mine. I never published a poem and I never will. It's for fun and more importantly personal realisation.
♥ Most of my poems are about love, because it is the most easily accessible emotive subject. There are hundreds of thoughts about love in everyone's mind (try reading 'That Hollyword Word') .
♥ I write two types of poem: a trashy song style which satisfies my low-brow urges (look at 'My Destiny' and 'Eternity'.) They're poor poetry.
♥ The type of poem I prefer to write is deeper.
♥ If you're just getting into my work, let me recommend a few favourites:
♥ FIRST BLOOD
♥ I SAW YOU (a little trashy, but I like it)
♥ INVISIBLE (it's the most empathetic of my poems) .
♥ RIDICULOUS. This is actually very true.
♥ THAT CHIPPED PAINT'S LOOKIN' BEAUTIFUL is my favourite poem. It's short and sweet with nice imagery.
♥ THAT HOLLYWORD WORD, an outcry against the cliched nature of the word LOVE.
♥ And LISTENING is sad and poignant, at least, I think so.
Please give me as much feedback as possible on my poems. I do ask that if you read them, you rate them and preferably comment (if you give me 5/10 I like to know why) . Always open to constructive criticism.
Thank you, and I hope you enjoy my poetry. I know I do.
Maddi Eden Poems
The golden sunlight, on your bed in the morning. Yawning and stretching in the warm tawny sun Like a contented purring cat.
The label on your jeans The sheen of your complexion The length of your nails Superficial
When I see your face See your smile See your love For someone else
Footprints In The Snow
The only knowledge worth having Is the joy of looking Upon a freshly frosted field Before seeing your own crunched impressions
Isn't it funny How when you're in love Ridiculous things Have extraordinary meaning?
I Saw You
I saw you You didn't see me I know that that's the way It's always going to be.
When I think about it Long and hard Logically I think that I’m crazy to stay with you.
Such A Fool
Such a fool! how stupid I am - To fall in love from a distance. Such a fool! how stupid I am -
I hope it hurts you - my hate, dripping from my mouth. Gushing from my pores
The Way Your Stomach Turns
everyone knows what i'm talking about. when your stomach flips, inside. come on, don't pretend you don't know.
Hushed whispers Of my elders What are they talking about?
All For Nothing
The sweat on our backs The blood in our veins The beat of our hearts. Pointless, eternal.
So Much More Than Lovely
Your writing Makes me smile It's just So lovely
It's Just Me & My Prayers
Left All Alone And No One Cares Left All Alone It's Just Me and My Prayers
She stands, so still, so poised
Hears their voices - wait!
Don't make a sound.
Every other word comes to her ears - oh God!
But it's enough.
She runs back to her room.
