Spotlight: Noora (Raw Diamond)

Hi All


It's an amazing day to share with you the work of someone I find highly talented. Today, on the Jimmy page and website, I am excited to share the poetry of Noora (Raw Diamond) with you!


Noora and I have been friends for a good bit of time now and I've followed her work since the day I first ran across it. Her poetry is powerful, often emotional, and always a pleasure to read. She is the Admin behind Special Needs Quill - a fantastic poetry group I am honored to be a part of (and I'm looking forward to the first SNQ anthology in 2023!).


Here is Noora (Raw Diamond) in her own words:


noora@RAW Diamond is a poetess who has endured much since childhood, falling prey to every abuse, and tribulation imaginable. Writing is what has been her guiding source of light, although she failed to believe in the magic of words, until recently. And still she struggles to see the power of her writing, as told to her by many, and only hopes that it does console others, the way that her poetry has eased the scars within her own mind and heart. Noora is transforming her pain into light, and is using the writing world full on to launch once hidden dreams…


To Jimmy Broccoli, I wish to say thank you, for this feature, I am deeply humbled, and may all your endeavours be favoured with great success.


Here are two poems by Noora - and I know you'll love them as much as I do! ______________ **Haunted Horrors**


Haunted horrors homed


In a


Merciless maddening mind


It is


Unkind undying undenied


No key


To enthralling embarking emancipation


Just a


Portal paving polytheists


Child's play


Demonising dashing daisies


But a


Ravenous raven relishes


A caw


Stenchy stealth scarred


In a


Gruesome grey gravel


Road of


Conjured cognitive connotations


Of once


Summoned saintly sermons


Yet a


Trapped trauma trespassed


Forgive the


Chastity chained chivalry


In a


Licentious lustful lingerie


Of the


Ghastly gaping gushings


Of the


Black barred beams


Of the


Stolen seduction silenced


In the


Mortified memory murdered


The past


Twirls trivial torture


And the


Eyes escape exoneration


For in


Innocence imbued impurity


Of a


Wanted wasteful waterfall


But the


Cataracts cascade certainty


Of a


Muted malignant masonry


For the


holy homicide hides


Behind the


Sky's skeletons slide


A heart


Damaged devoured dies.

Sipping sorrow


Of magical memories


Bathed in the


Dry desert deserted


you thrive in loose sand


blown behind beauty


sandstorms swirl


nostalgic heartache


and thrash the threshold


for a continuum does not exist


meshed madness misery


bleeds boldly


in icicle eyes


and the rain runs rampant round


your heart


but succulents never die


they thrive


with passion


firmly planted


in the land’s soul sand


never needing much


always reborn


from the teardrops


that the sun soaks


in its azure skies.
