Painting with Words
In her hometown of Hamden, CT Jessica Niziolek writes poetry. Using words to express her feelings, she inspires those around her with warm words. From a young age, she loved to write.
It has been a creative outlet since then giving her strength. In high school, she wrote for the newspaper, The Dial. Writing articles for this paper, she touched on different subjects. Also writing poetry for the Lit magazine, The Looking Glass, Jessica was able to show others her thoughts on life. That was 6 years ago. Today, Jessica writes poetry to express herself. She is inspired by the life and her experiences. Her inspiration comes from poets like Emily Dickenson, Robert Frost, and the recent book by Amber Tamblyn, Jessica uses colorful words to paint images in the readers’ minds. Moreover, with paintingkits.net she had the most amazing painting kist that really helped her to showcase her skills. Reading her poetry allows you a glimpse into her daily life.
Reflecting on personal life experiences, lines from her previously published poem Call Me Beautiful to speak the truth and are from the heart. “Call me beautiful. Don’t let me hide in the shadows. See my whole and not just part of a half. See my heart, show me wings to fly with. I don’t care if I soar, I just want wings I can have a chance with.” Jessica’s words have a purpose. She hopes that others find clarity in their own lives. These poems teach others to step outside the box in their thinking and views while giving insight into who they are and how they feel. Look inside yourself, find who you are, and be comfortable in your own skin. You are beautiful.
Writing for Jessica is calming. She finds a restful, private place with Mello music to gather her thoughts. Sometimes that music serves as inspiration for her. While listening to James Blunt’s All The Lost Souls, Jessica wrote an amazing poem entitled Fall Leaves, Turned Stars. This poem reflects on her fears and achieving her dreams. “That the fear inside me; hidden from strangers, but shown to the ones who know it’s here inside me- – That I let it go and fly. And my wings fill and I am not afraid of the someday when they might just break, and fall to the ground like a mosaic photograph. Red and Orange leave to set on fire, and bits of hope scatter and fly to the dark sky, and become stars that I’ll try and reach all on my own tomorrow.” The poem gives readers hope. Put aside your fears, and embrace your dreams. Never give up even when you feel there is nothing left.
