I had the incredible good fortune of winning Heat 8 of Word War Three on Tuesday. This means I now have a place in the final on December 6. I was probably one of the most amazed people in the room when the results were announced because the calibre of poetry on the stage that evening was incredible.
The picture on the right is me collecting my prize from the incredible Kieran King.
I don't have words to say how amazing the whole evening was. So, instead, I'll simply share a serious poem.
It's been a while since I've shared a poem on here. Since I'm going to be participating in September's Word War 3MT event (heat eight) at Affleck's in Manchester, I figured it was time to remember my poetry roots.
This is a poem I haven't yet had a chance to try out on an audience. I dedicate it to the woman I love.
