Her Notepad
A very random collection of Poetry written by Dean Thorpe


Logo for Her Notepad Poetry

This is a selection of poems on a variety of subjects from photography to self harm!!! Some poetry is negative, some of the poetry is positive depending on my mood.

Why did I call this Her Notepad??? 

My name is Dean Thorpe and there are a few anagrams of that, two of the ones I really like the most are Death Prone and Her Notepad! 

Plus I have a few gender issues, so have no problem with it saying Her ;)

These poems are mostly ok, but a couple of them do cover subjects that might be unsuitable for younger readers.

They are also in alphabetic order, so the quality may go up and down as you go throught them!

Every poem in this section is by Dean Thorpe, but feel free to share them as I do love it when people read and enjoy my poetry, just please do not make money of them.
