Hi there!

Welcome to the friendly quiet, my little place to think and to write. I’m a new blogger and I’m sort of working things out as I go along – as you might be able to tell! – but I write poems, and plan to write more about my life experiences too.

You will probably see some themes of anxiety, perfectionism, and identity-related musings here. In light of the fact that these themes can sometimes be a little dark or heavy, I try as much as I can to be mindful of this as I write, and to be optimistic in my honesty.

Please feel free to share your thoughts or experiences in the comments, and if you have specific things you might want me to write about, you can email me at thefriendlyquiet@gmail.com

Thank you for visiting!

  1. Hi there! I don’t follow too many poetry blogs, but your work really resonates with me. Poetry seems to be such a great medium for expressing ideas that can’t just be relegated to prose. Definitely looking forward to reading more!


    1. Hi there, thank you so much for your thoughtful comment – it makes me really happy to hear that it resonates with you! It’s hard to know sometimes, when you’re writing about things that are so personal, whether anyone will like it at all, let alone find something in it that means something to them. Thank you again 🙂
