Poetry in film

January 16, 2019

I love to read and write poetry, but it is even more of a pleasure when I see and hear poetry in films. This piece is from ‘YOU’, a Netflix series on love and obsession. You is based on a novel by Caroline Kepnes.

BLUEBEARD’S CASTLE

How the hell did you end up here?

“Your life has been better since you met me, you just didn’t know how or why

You paint me a monster, someone who could hurt people

Someone who could do terrible things”

You used to wrap yourself in fairy tales like a blanket, but it was the cold you loved,

Sharp shivers as you uncovered the corpses of Bluebeard’s wives

Sweeter goosebumps as prince-charming slipped one glass-slipper over your little toes

The perfect fit (more…)

Quote of the week-Mad

December 4, 2015

burn

Back in the middle ages

They burned unruly women at the stake

And out of the ashes of their bones

And flesh

Rose the Enlightenment and Reason fresh

 

And the white men declared

There’s no such thing as witches

They’re just crazy psycho—bitches

But we certainly can’t let them run free

Lock ‘em up and throw way the key

Yeah they said; lock ‘em up and

Throw away the key

 

Cause there’s nothing scarier than a woman mad/or

Aware of her own magic

Tragic how much violence is done

In the name of science

To ensure our silence

An excerpt from the poem ‘Revenge’ by Leah Harris
