Ultimate Bliss

It’s been a long time since I woke up with the urge to write. I honestly didn’t think I’d have anything new to enter into this years Brit Writer’s Award. But after a particularly bad migraine in January I lost all interest in writing novels. A couple of days later I woke up with these words in my head. 

“I look at you, my heart it aches”

A few moments later and I had a whole verse and within thirty minutes I had the whole poem.

Ultimate Bliss was the first poem I wrote which triggered my entire entry for the Brit Writer’s Award. It is the last poem in the collection and where the characters forgive and forget. They live happily ever after.
