A collection of beautiful, simple poems about life experiences and relationships; something for everyone.

Synopsis

Cloud Thoughts is a poetry book, that is filled with versatility. From poems about love, to heartbreak. From friendship, to back stabbers. Motivating poems to depressing poems. Because its okay, to not be okay, and this book tells you that. It was created to be realistic. Everyone experiences ups and downs. Cloud Thoughts can be dark at times, but then light right after. All storms pass eventually. This book is made for anyone, and I hope that anyone, is you.

One of the first things that I noticed about Cloud Thoughts is its clean, uncluttered layout and design. This ensures that nothing distracts the reader from the poems and what they want to convey.


The poems are modern in tone, lyrical, and appear to be straightforward at first glance. It's only when you re-read them that you discover the wealth of meaning underneath the words.


Some are short--only a few lines--whereas others fill a whole page. You can read the poems in any order and the varying lengths makes it an engaging experience.


I also feel that some of these poems would make good pop songs!


Some of my favorite lines are:


"You're always flying around my mind, just like a bird,

Thinking about you is the loudest silence that I've ever heard."


"I wish all of your memories would die off, and finally leave my head,

But ghosts cannot die, for they are already dead."


"I have all these built up feelings, that I try to contain,

I cry translucent tears, so no one can see my pain."


"Art is subjective, no matter what you choose to do."


"And if you don't believe in yourself, no one else will."


"But I need to finish this poem, poetry fixes me, I'm broken."


"Your dreams are for you to keep."


"Because flowers can grow anywhere, if you just give them a chance."


"I have skeletons in my closet, and cover them with jackets and shirts."


The poems talk about a variety of things: love and longing, heartbreak, pain, self-confidence, drunkenness, friendships, relationships, depression, death, and general life experiences. Reading them gave me moments of clarity and insight into my own thoughts and experiences.


I love the unapologetic tone of the author. He says what he wants, however he wants and does not shy away from talking about his deepest, darkest thoughts.


There's something for everyone and this is a lovely collection of poems to brighten your day!

Reach for the stars, head in the clouds

Reach for the stars, head in the clouds

I can hear everything from up here, my thoughts are so loud

No worries and no responsibilities, I’m never coming down

From up here, everyone looks like ants walking around on the ground

I look all around me, and I’m surrounded by a scenery of blue

Nothing beats seeing a rainbow from a bird’s eye view

But then, an airplane flew past me and knocked me off my feet

I’m falling so fast, heading straight for the concrete

I start panicking, I’m not ready to die

Suddenly, I feel myself slowing down and I begin to fly

I go straight back up, can’t bring me down that easy

I love my new home, where there’s plenty of sunshine and the wind stays breezy

There was nothing for me down there, I’m leaving my old life behind

I feel so happy, I finally found my peace of mind

But unfortunately, I blinked and came back to reality with a sigh

I’m still sitting in the grass, looking up at the sky.
