Samantha King's latest volume of poetry, Born to Love, Cursed to Feel, is about love—the good, the bad, and the confusing. It touches on morals, mistakes, and ultimately growth. When emotions are involved, not everything is black and white.
by Samantha King
I’m a hoarder of memories
Crammed between how beautiful my present is
and what my past has done to me
It’s not monsters that I fear but the remnants of you
that I have left under my bed
The notes, the cards, the little trinkets
I decided to clear it all out today
It’s easier to look back; you already know the ending
I think it’s time I actually give myself a chance
to embrace the here and now
Samantha King has been writing since the age of 11. She took up the pen during a tough time in her life and it evolved from song writing into poetry. Not always able to articulate how she felt, poetry became her therapy. The compilation of poems over the years takes you through the various stages of her life, almost like a diary. The essence of who she was and is becoming can be found in her words. She currently resides in New York with r.h. Sin.
