Catherine’s debut poetry collection The Quarter Life Crisis Poet”

Here we have a collection of poems I wrote between 2010-2015. It’s essentially 25 years of my existence, much of it was filled with pain, disappointments and sorrow. Maybe you can relate? Out of despair, hope can return and happier days can appear. I hope these poems can make you feel less lonely about the pain we all feel inside. Even if you’re facing a Quarter Life Crisis know that you’re not the only one and you will come out of it stronger. *Hugs!* Join me on my journey….

I am officially disillusioned by love:

Love typically falls into one of 7 categories. (Yes love can be ‘hacked’, humans are predictable and their patterns of behaviour are bordering on formulaic.)

  1. Waity Katie ( I think we all know who fits into that category because it was coined for someone *winks*, oftentimes Doctors do fall into this trap. I guess it could also be labelled ‘Uni love’ or rather laziness….)
  2. Lookalikes/inc*stuos (George & Amal)
  3. Parent trap (I don’t want to offend any celebs by posting a pic or naming, but you know when his other half looks like his Mum- literally.)
  4. He could not, did not, will not, then did. (Kim & Kanye. 9. Freakin’. Years!)
  5. Not yet Independent (Nick & Jessica) When you meet someone when you’re too young and don’t get that chance to date around and get a taste of being an independent woman.
  6. Oh so 40 (Blonde Bond & Weisz) When he doesn’t show up until you’re nearing 40.
  7. Too Late/Mr Procrastinator (Lillian Wilhelmina van der Woodsen and Rufus Humphrey of Gossip girl) This is when the man is a coward and does fuck all even when given the chance…. *rolls eyes* Comes out with gobshite response: “I never should have let you let me go.”

Fate turns cruel you’re on your knees, so desperate for one truth….

 

Remember that blue crystal sky
The sun reflected in your eyes
Kissed me unexpectedly
A moment I just can’t forget
We filled the air with promises
Took them up so tenderly
But life never asks you what you want
It’s just gonna have its way
Sometimes it doesn’t give like it takes

If I never see your face
If wings take you away from me
And tomorrow never happens, baby
If the world comes tumbling down
And crumbles all around us
Fate turns cruel
You’re on your knees
So desperate for one truth
Know that I have loved you

Don’t think I’ll write another letter
Or watch another pink sunset
Without thinking about you
I take a walk along the blue seaside
How will I sleep at night
How will I wipe the tears from your eyes

If I never see your face
If wings take you away from me
And tomorrow never happens, baby
If the world comes tumbling down
And crumbles all around us
Fate turns cruel
You’re on your knees
So desperate for one truth
Know that I have loved you

Without a single hesitation
Without thought or reservation
Baby, I’ll be waiting
Even if I never see your face
And wings take you away from me
And tomorrow never happens, baby
If the world comes tumbling down
And crumbles all around us
Fate turns cruel
You’re on your knees
So desperate for one truth
Know that I have loved you

I have loved you

If I never see your face
If wings take you away from me
With all my heart and all my soul
The world comes tumbling down
And crumbling all around
I have loved you

If I never see your face
If wings take you away from me
I have loved you….

Movie Star turned Novelist: Talulah Riley is publishing a book this summer- yay!

Blurb:

Bernadette is expert at hiding the truth.

She has built her career as a journalist on her talent for lulling powerful men into a false sense of security, then exposing them in her ruthless profile pieces.

But in Radley Blake, she may have met her match. Immune to her charms, he seems to see through every layer of her carefully constructed act: right to the truth of who she is inside.

We think we’re looking for love – but what if it’s ourselves we need to find? Talulah Riley’s wonderful first novel is an irresistible will-they-won’t-they tale that asks how it is we can strive for independence, but still believe in destiny…
