There is always a reason. A story. A message. My truth behind everything I do. I hope you enjoyed my poetry collection of 2016.
Poetry Collection 2016: Hope you enjoyed the journey I shared.
I took you to the Brooklyn Bridge where I was once a mistress. Expressed the heartbreak of a tainted love Laying Across My Body. Opened up about the industry and how trouble followed me in Plays With Devils. I reflected how lonely my career can be as I shine For The Gods. Power emerged as the Bitch In Me came alive. I finished with a Confession Of Daddy Issues.
The fans have spoken...thank you! Let's prepare for the summer with the return of Paul's Advice On All Things Life, and my new lifestyle blog! http://www.paultravis.net/blog-s/category/poetry
Much love, xoxo
Hello! Decided to push the release of Confession Of Daddy Issues. An exploration of the past as I left to conquer my dream embarking on a journey known as love, heartbreak, mistakes and a forever. Enjoy, I love you all!
With a politically incorrect name, Bitch In Me, is a piece of defiance, strength, imperfections, acceptance, vulnerability, love and success. As you all know by now I don't write your typical poetry. I express myself in a way only I can.
If I recollect many reasons in my life one I can't not find is why so many people I once knew were cruel to me. Either it have been from classmates, friends, guys, figures of authority and family members.
With no pity in mind I truly have been treated horrible by people. I hated myself for so long because of the mental torture I've been through. To my readers who may have suffered and are, please know you are not alone. Accepting what happened is what helped me move on to the happiness I am now in, and those days I may struggle I can crawl my way back to joy.
This is me letting you all know I can feel where you stand with me. If you love me. If you hate me. If you say negative things about me. If you judge me. If you ignore my journey, or if you're part of it. I know.
I've built something for myself that I am proud of. If you want to be part of it, you're more than welcomed, but if you think you can decline, deny or bash my life don't fool yourself because in me lives a tiger unable to be tamed.
I thank you all for coming to read Bitch In Me. This isn't just a poem. It's me breaking free from everything and everyone. Enjoy this new power anthem, which is sung from my heart and soul. Love you, xo! - Paul
My loves! Here it is, Aprils new poem! I hope you guys enjoy this reflection as I venture into the next phase of my career, and era of poetry. Thank you for the love and support, xo!
Monthly I would like to release one new poem! Plays With Devils is for the month of March. I hope you enjoy! Love you all- xo
A new year means a new poem! I hope you guys enjoy! Much love, always!
I couldn't wait to share this poem. Coming up with the right words took a bit-very odd for me- I sat at my computer screen staring at it while typing, and erasing, typing and finally I knew I had the perfect set to tell this story. I know it will fill a lot of unanswered questions to my readers. I am proud of this piece, and I hope you enjoy- xo
In this new piece I take you back to place where love was dark. And, I crossed paths with someone who had tainted eyes. Yet, as you know, nothing can stop me from standing my ground. I hope you enjoy! xo
Enjoy this new poem inspired from before and after my amazing man, my recently passed two year anniversary with him, my favorite fairytale and Cleopatra! xo
In this piece I share my true perception on life and how I wish for you all to see the true beauty it is. Life is a gift and it's a never ending one. I hope you enjoy reading this and may you be blessed with love, joy and happiness!
A more present day take on my past, future and present! I really couldn't wait to share this piece with you all! It's one dear to my heart and I am glad now is the time! Enjoy, xx
I wanted to share a piece of poetry that I wrote for my Mom as a present. Today, July 4th is her birthday. She is a women of much strength, compassion, bravery, kindness and can be feisty. There is no other women like her and none could ever compare. From the way she cheers me on as I keep turning my dreams into reality and even how she had open arms to my boyfriend. Family is important to me and to see how she reached out to grow her very own relationship with the man I love just showed more beauty to the person she is. America celebrates independence on this beautiful day, which is something my Mom taught me about myself...my own independence. To be proud of who I am, to stand up for what I believe, to never give up and to be free so I can be happy. Her guidance has brought me to this point in my life and I look forward to where it will take me.
Mom, Happy Birthday! Thanks for everything and I love you.
Not only did Who I Am: Poetry hit #1 in pre-sales....
We did it again for opening week!
You guys are so awesome. I am so thankful for your loyalty, support and love. From the bottom of my heart this project was for you guys. We are #1!
I wanted to share I had a first full listen of my audio tracks for Who I Am: Poetry. I am so excited to have these on the upcoming chapbook. They show such a different side to the book, and my work. I don't do your typical poetry reading, but instead I take you all back to when I experienced those words! Really happy with how they turned out! Thank you to everyone on the production team! Release date is coming soon!
Other than my novels I have been planning future projects. I am proud to share, even though my first poetry isn't out yet, a glimpse of the follow up in my poetry releases.
A producer whom I once worked with asked me back into the studio to record! So I did. I thought putting two of my favorite poems to music from my upcoming chapbook would be fun. Now please be aware these are very rough. Don't expect anything amazing. Some of you may laugh. Still, I like them. These would be the early stages right before you would begin recording for the album. It is all I had time for. Currently am back into my element of writing my sequel. Life has been pretty crazy with unexpected release of my chapbook, studio time, and other things so I feel good to be with my story.
"Who I Am"
The rough demos are now released.
I have been in the studio recording my poetry as recordings! Excited to show you guys a different side to me, a more personal one! Stay tuned, check out the Intro & Always Remain! Stay tuned for more!
You Are True, a poem dear to my heart, just like the person it is about. - Paul
You Are True is a poem dear to my heart, just like the person it is about, my Boyfriend. He is my everything, and I am so glad to have him in my life. This piece takes you back when I allowed myself to fall in love. Even though I was in love, sometimes your heart won’t give in. (I wasn’t even aware of my struggle until I wrote this)
A lot of my newer work with poetry reflects a lot about my relationship with him. I can look back at who I was, who I am now and enjoy the good, the bad, because I have him now. That may sound cliché, but I didn’t know I was that alone. That I pushed so many people away. With him I found a best friend, that no friend can ever be, I found a partner who understands, and I discovered the other half of my soul. I know when he reads this he will most likely say, “Paul, chill.” Of course I will tell him, “No. I love expressing how much I love you.” Then he will give me a cute smirk, and I will tell him I love him like a billion times, while he stays quiet. Yea He and I are very two different people, but that is what makes us so perfect for each other. Besides the point, You Are True will be released this Friday!
If I listened to what people said, I wouldn't be where I am today. - Paul
Ready For It really makes a statement about where I stand with myself today. Not saying I don't have those "off days." (I mean we are only human, right?) But it is about someone (me) who feels confident in their own skin. Finally feeling alive and becoming free; in other words becoming your own.
You really see how criticism or judgement couldn't stop, nor slow me down. I want others to see that within themselves. I really love this piece. It's a bold way to write a poem, but it fit perfect. (It is the way it came out) It has a sassy, fierce, yet has a softness about finding your own personal strength. It makes a statement. In the end if I were to listen to what people said, I wouldn't be where I am today. I hope you enjoy, or enjoyed the poem. You Are True is coming soon!
