Shine Your Icy Crown
by Amanda Lovelace
Sometimes I get what I call readers block. Where no matter what I just can’t concentrate or focus enough to absorb what I am reading. I find that taking a break and switching to poetry forces my brain to slow down and helps me focus. I found Amanda Lovelace a few years ago and fell in love with her blunt writing style and the raw emotion it evokes. Her writing is so enlightening and empowering to read. This is the 2nd installment in Lovelace’s poetry series “You are Your Own Fairytale”.
