I dragged Kate into this alley! Day #3 of Pick-pocketing Poems♥


Look whom I’ve lured here with the promises of candies and stories *cackles*. Today ladies and gentlemen, I have got you a new treat by the delectable Kate Farlow, or as you might know her- LK Farlow!

Kate is a new to me author, and I have read just a couple of her books, but this lady is damn talented people. I was honestly really excited when she said yes to doing this. Especially the serial witch in me was at least. She was saying “new food for the cauldron blog”. No I’m not eating her. But I could. She’s that sweet♥


“You don’t always get the treasure by holding on. Sometimes the magic happens when you let go.” 
—Leylah Attar// The Paper Swan

LK Farlow—

For so long, you were all I could see…but,
Without you, am I me?
My eyes are now open, and I know I should leave…but,
Without you, can I breathe?
I ache to stay. I yearn to fight…but,
Without you, is there any light?
Stronger now than I was before,
Without you, I am not less…I’m more.
For so long, you ate away at my sanity…but,
Without you, can I be free?
My walls are going up, my heart is hardening in my chest…but,
Without you, can I be my best?
I ache for peace. I yearn for quiet…but,
Without you, will my emotions still riot?
Stronger now than I was before,
Without you, I am not less…I’m more.

About Kate—

Name’s Kate, but I write as LK, and like it says, I’m a small town girl with a love for words. Like, really, that pretty much sums it up.

Kidding. I’m kidding.

I’m a life-long South Alabama native, with a love for all things Southern. From the accent (which I’m strangely lacking) to the food, it just makes my heart happy.

I have the most amazing husband on the planet, and 3 scrumpalicious Littles—for real, my fam jam is the best.

I’ve always loved reading and writing. So, my free time is filled with all things books and words.
