WEEK 12 // INSURGENCE
She was never ready
To be the match
In a tinderbox
But here she was
Now the wildfire
No longer delicate
But the fury // 📸 @kendrakboudoir
full piece below
take the dive and dissolve
between the sheets with me
our time together
is not measured in days
but in waves of pleasure
the curtains have been drawn
for far too long but i could find you
in the dark by taste or nose alone
in equal parts
predator and prey
the dog and the bone

this particular level in life is far more difficult than i had anticipated. struggling to accept things as how they are. but, regardless, here’s one of my favourite pieces 🐋🌇
[Bio] @gigis_thoughts_: Georgia Kombakis is a 47 year old poet who was born and raised in beautiful Greece up until the age of 16 when she got married and moved to the US, currently residing in Maine. Georgia started writing poetry in quite the interesting way; a dare with herself after her eldest daughter introduced her to the world of rhymes and rhythms - we have to fervently thank her daughter for introducing such a talent to the world in October 2017!
Georgia's poems don't exactly focus on one particular topic instead they capture the essence of life with all its roller coasters of emotions, heartbreaks, love and sensuality. Gigi's inspiration isn't restricted to one thing, she can easily turn an image, song, past experience or even a word prompt into a beautiful piece of literary art - in two languages; English or Greek to reach an even wider audience however she hasn't published any books yet and doesn't plan on doing so anywhere in the near future, but who knows maybe someday!
She considers herself an open minded woman, who still holds onto remnants of good old fashioned values and believes in the mystical power of setting your mind to a goal, working hard and persisting with a smile on your face no matter what life hurls at you in order to reach utmost success.
Georgia loves to call her friends sunshine, and she's pretty quick at making friends. (; Here are interesting some questions Georgia answered for us:
Q: When you're not writing, what do you do?
Georgia: I’m a pizzeria owner. I’m the typical Greek mom of three beautiful kids that likes to make people happy by feeding them. In my free time I like to beat my husband in backgammon,(which doesn’t happen very often), nature walks, bike rides and visiting my happy place, the beach.
Q: What are you currently reading?
Georgia: I always had a short attention span , so I was not a reader growing up. I prefer short stories or poems.
Q: Your favourite poet?
Georgia: Pablo Neruda and Rumi really touch my heart, but I love the writings of Greek poets also like Sappho, Yiannis Ritsos, Cavafy and the romantic poet Odysseas Elytis.
