I love it when I get introduced to new poets and poetry channels. This time it was my friend Alex who shared the poem “Girls Who Read” by Mark Grist in collaboration with Roundhouse London.
Call me sentimental, but this poem brought happy tears and a warm feelings that reminded of a tiny high school crush when I first heard the words that came out of the mouth of Mark Grist. I’ve been in relationships with men who doesn’t read and after some trials and fails I’ve come to understand that the fact that they don’t appreciate the written word is such a big factor that isn’t compatible with my life and my passion. I want to be able to share what I love with someone who can understand it. And to hear the words of this man really reminded me of just that!
Now I can’t get enough of this video and this poem!
Thank you for sharing this with me Alex!
And now I’m sharing it with you guys! Enjoy!
