It happened on Pleasant
street

where echoes of laughter
ring

from three girlfriends living
a Dream

and birthday celebrations
ushering

a coming of age
brokered

by a smile in the dark
and

“Nice black friend
You’ve got there.”

Lidy Wilks

Lidy Wilks debut is the poetry chapbook Can You Catch My Flow? but poetry is not the only genre she writes in. She is currently writing a contemporary romance. And a young adult supernatural work in progress novel. As well as another poetry chapbook and her first full length poetry collection. She lives in Virginia with her husband and two children. When Lidy Wilks is not writing, she refills her creative well and binges on the storytelling of anime. Books, manga and Asian dramas. And relaxes by listening to good music. Eating milk chocolate candies. And or with a glass of Cabernet or Riesling wine.

    Yes, unfortunately, it mirrors an experience I had in high school that stunned and then, unintentionally, empowered me…

      Thank you. It’s sad but true fact that there are people on this world who feel they’re licensed to bring darkness in other’s lives.
