(adjective)
difficult to control or predict because of unusual behavior.

When I was a kid, I wanted to be a mermaid and an astronaut. So, I became both- neither at war with the other, despite being at two extremes.

What does this have to do with poetry? Everything.

Within these pages, you’ll find poems that strain both sides of consciousness- words that aren’t

The poetry collection "WAYWARD: Poets for Monsters, Muses & Other Deviants" by Melody Klink is written in a freestyle and leads us into a world where the writer re-examines inner feelings. The collection can find a poem about love, a poem about unreserved love, nature, sadness, rage, aging, and all the feelings that pass through the fading life. In some poems, you feel sarcasm toward life and the inability to change anything, and again in other verses, it celebrates life through

This “wayward” collection of poems from Melody Klink contains many words of regret and sadness, and joy and celebration, while leaving the reader intensely thoughtful about life, lives and the meaning of it all. For me there seemed to be too few poems about the awe and wonder to be found in nature, though Flutterby and Lightning gave a hint of hope. The majority of the poems that spoke to me I felt were fundamentally about the happiness and fears that parenthood can bring. One or two of Klink’s ...more

It is one thing to write a story and share it to the world. Sure, a story contains many of our thoughts, hopes, dreams, fears-- but poetry is about our innards, and how they react to the world, in real life and in real-time. To share poetry is to share the essence of living.

Sharing my most personal poetry with you guys has been frightening, and enlightening. I sincerely hope everyone enjoys Wayward, and that if you're off the deep end, I'm there with you. ;)

While pretending to be a human, Melody Klink likes to write down words. Lots and lots of them. All to gain the admiration and trust of the human masses.

Wait. I mean… Melody Klink is a lovable little scamp with a sweet tooth for all things coffee. When she's not collecting superstitions about the American South, she can be found scribbling out stories on just about anything, which explains her odd
