I love reading but I love writing more. My taste in genres range from children’s books to mysteries, romance to historical fiction but what I really love the most is poetry. It’s the tempo, the flow, the gentle way that the words bring you softly through a story or thought, which makes prose one of the highest respected forms of writing in the literary industry. Boston is full of talented poets that use their talents to express feelings, opinions and outlooks on what they experience. You might find them on their laptops in coffee shops or maybe scribing on a notepad on a bench in the Commons but wherever they find their inspiration, there is no doubt the remarkable perceptions that they give readers.
One Boston poet that has particularly caught my attention is the Silently Spoken Project (J.J. aka JustKnoxx) who uses social media platforms such as Instagram (@silentlyspokenproject) to promote his work. His primary quote featured on his page, “Even in silence, you have a voice” speaks volumes of his style, which I find to be direct, phrased in strength and refreshingly honest. While he seems to prefer writing about topics reflecting on themes of love, he has successfully built an archetype that is original and marketable. One of my favorite’s read, “If you genuinely love someone, don’t ever decorate their eyes with tears, their ears with lies, and their heart with a wound.”
This artist has cleverly been accruing more and more interest on his media sites and continues to grow his following with both men and women (I like how he speaks to both sexes). In doing a quick search, I’ve already found several web pages showcasing his poetry including Facebook, Iconosquare and Tumblr. If your looking for a great account to follow, this is the guy to find and from one writer to the next, I’ll be following the silentlyspokenproject to be sure not to miss this Bostonian’s genuine poetic talent. Best of luck to your future writing endeavors, J.J!
