My Merry Merry Other

Woelf Dietrich is the first to take the leap in sharing his work on poetry Friday!.


I have something different for you today. I don’t normally write poetry, mainly because I think I suck at it. My strong suit is popular fiction about gods and demons and angry werewolves, but now and then, for some unexplainable reason, I’ll venture into poetry and I’ll play with it, and sometimes I’ll pour my soul into it, irrespective of quality.

While doing some general file maintenance on my computer today I discovered a poem I wrote two years ago about my wife. We will celebrate our 10-year anniversary later this year and this poem made me realize that the words I used are still true and applicable today.

The problem with things like this is always the cheesy factor, which I get, but it doesn’t take away the realness of the emotions behind the words and because I still stand behind them and, honestly, like how the poem reads, I wanted to share it.

Thus, for the first time, I present to you my humble attempt at a love poem.

my merry merry other

 As a kid I read a lot of books and comics. Anything from fantasy to westerns to science fiction. I wrote my first story at 12 and loved doing it. I continued writing, often in spurts of creative inspiration, until one day I finally just gave up. I suppose you could say I allowed life to interfere. But I never stopped reading and that kept the seed alive.
These days I’m back to writing. I mostly write tales of dark fantasy and the supernatural. Sometimes I write other things.

I live in New Zealand with my wife and kids, and a dog.

My latest release “Bullies and Soggy Soup Bones is  a short story  about a boy and his dog, about bullies and soggy soup bones, and about finding courage in the unlikeliest of places. You can check it out on Amazon.

 I would love it if you would join and connect with me on Social Media:
Thank you, Woelf  for taking the time to share this charming and beautiful tribute to your Merry Merry Other!

  1. aww, this is so so sweet. more men should write poetry! It doesn’t matter if you obey all the “rules”, of if it rhymes or follows a specific pattern: it’s the sentiments expressed and the raw emotion — like here! – that matters.

    1. You get nervous when you release words like these onto the public for fear of them not feeling the meaning behind them, but I’ve been fortunate that the right eyes read them. Thank you so much for the nice sentiments.

      And thanks for allowing me on your blog, Darcie. That was kind of you.

      1. YAY! The month of March and April the theme will be the cinema. Reflections of your favourite movie, your first time at a movie theatre, anything that centres around life and the movies. If you are interested feel free to submit a piece 🙂
