Tamara Emery


I was born in Anaheim California and raised in Chino Hills, up until we moved to Clearwater Florida when I was 16. I Moved here with my sister and my mom (god rest her soul), Marilyn Lovejoy. My child life growing up was like a train wreck which led to endless traumatic sufferings from my heart and soul and continued on into my adult years. I don’t wish it on anyone to go through what I now go through as an adult.
It was a confusing time in my life, being in the middle of an ugly custody battles back and forth for 10 years not knowing which parent I was going to live with tomorrow or next week. As a child, I learned at ‘Magruder Middle School’, how to free write in a composition book (journal) where I later learned how to write Essays and achieving at it. Later, I started writing about my relationships, love and tribulations. As you read my poems, you will hear my life's experiences, some uplifting and some that are not so much! I hope you enjoy reading them as I enjoyed writing about them. Thank-you

At the age of 16 is when I started writing poetry, expressing my feelings from the heart, from sadness and feelings of the loss of being loved by others, to the passionate relationships that I've had in my life, to the men who treated me disrespectfully to those who truly loved me. From the time I was 5 to about 15, I was living inside a cell', metaphorically speaking, ' with me and my knife.'
