More About Me

What I want you to know about me...

Hey everyone ! My name's Meriem. I'm 18. I'm from Algeria in north Africa. And NO, we're NOT all starving to death, and we're NOT all super skinny. We have the technology and we're just like all the people around the world. NOT ALL the African countries are in misery. Just had to clear a few things.

Poetry's a big thing for me. It's my passion, what I love. It's more like my "getaway" and it helps me feel better. I've been writing whatever crossed my mind since I was 13. But it's at the age of 15 that I started taking poetry seriously.

I'm a nice girl who loves to enjoy every day, thinks in a different way and is trying to hold on to her dreams. A girl who has hopes for a brighter future.
I'm quite smart :P at least, that's what I thought untill I messed up at school last year, LOL.

I joined this site for two reasons, so that I can be able to share my poems with people all over the world, it's what I've always wanted. And also to know if I'm good. I hope you like my poems ! :)
Peace xoxo

About My Navel

Favorite Stuff (poets, poems, quotes, hobbies, etc.)

I like reading books.

I love French and I collect French texts that I find on blogs and Facebook pages. I'm like obsessed with them, seriously. I have at least like 300 texts saved in my cell phone that I reread everyday while I'm watching TV, eating, cleaning, lying in bed, I even walk around the house carrying my cell phone and reading them. LOL. What's so special about them is that they're so simple considering that they're written by normal people so when you're reading a text, you know it's a normal person who wrote this, someone just like you, someone who doesn't have a literature degree and can write a whole story about something they saw when they were walking down the streets like authors. Haha x) Yeah. They're just so beautiful and so touching. And they, in a strange way, make me feel less lonely because I can always relate to them.

These are some of my Favourite Quotes:
In poetry, life is more life than life itself. [Vissarion Bielinski]
Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. [Plutarch]
Poetry is an echo, asking a shadow to dance. [Carl Sandburg]
Poetry is plucking at the heartstrings, and making music with them. [Dennis Gabor]
Each word bears its weight, so you have to read my poems quite slowly. [Anne Stevenson]
When inspiration does not come to me, I go halfway to meet it. [Sigmund Freud]

Besides writing and reading, I enjoy listening to music ( Indie Rock, Alternative Rock, Metal, Grunge, Funk, Country, Soul & Blues, some Pop and Rap ... ), and watching TV (Horror, Drama, Romance, Comedy, ... ). I love sports especially Soccer, Tennis and Basketball.

I love birds. I actually have one. He's a canary and his name is Pilou ♥. I adore horses, it's my dream to have one. I also love tigers a lot. But when they're in their cages of course. LOL. It may seem weird but cats give me the creeps. They're cute though. :P

Black, Blue, Red, Pink and Purple are my favourite colours.

I FREAKING love anything that has a heart, a star, a butterfly, a bow or animal print on it. ♥
I love all kinds of Art and I wish I could draw. I like photography a lot too. I collect pictures in black and white. I have millions of them. I also like to collect all kinds of pens and copybooks.

I love Blue Roses ♥ and I wish they were real x'(
I love the rain, the snow and all cold weather. I guess I love the dark too.

I'm a metalhead who listens to Metallica and Iron Maiden and who's obsessed with The Jonas Brothers at the same time. Yup, I'm a weird girl and proud to be.

I don't even know why I'm telling you all of this. But I feel like expressing myself right now. x'D

BTW, I love it when people care enough to comment on my poems, so feel free to tell me what you think whether it's bad or good. I'm a big girl and I can handle criticism.

If you want to know more about me, you know what to do ; )

Peace xoxo
