Welcome to Spice and Nice!

Welcome to my blog, Spice and Nice! My Name is Joy. Here is my little corner of the internet where I take time to appreciate and learn about new things.

You’ll find poetry (lots and lots of poetry), recipes, ramblings of my insanity, and the occasional post on the importance of relaxing far, far away from other people.

Some days, I will unfold my thoughts and share my distress, other days, I will write to encourage you.

Oh Fickle is My Mind

Broken Van Goghs lay on the Sultan’s floorScatteredMared with the blood of a lover Tell meWhat’s the beauty of desireAnd where does it all go? Are we built on the lust of anotherWanting the things we may never haveOr you we titter on the edge of insanity Agonizing over our distant futureGenerations yet to comeAs…
