Spoken Word Poetry ☮

I'll keep this post short and simple, so that the real focus would be on the videos. A batchmate of mine featured these two people on her blog, and I just had to share it with you.

Meet Sarah Kay and Phil Kaye. They have much more things in common, other than their last names sounding the same. Watch their story in the Origin video, and see how their paths intersected. What a coincidence, having a similar last name, siblings with the same name as the other, having gone to the same university, and the same cultural background that you would think NO ONE would have?


Although these two aren't dating (even if I think they should because they're practically soulmates), you could see the emotion through their words. Their delivery and passion makes poetry even more heartfelt, and these talented people can make you feel things even songs can't give you.

One of my favorites of them is When Love Arrives. It's a poem that has struck a chord in my heart every time I watch it. It's moving, it's relevant, and it's sincerely true. The way they make analogies, the way they tell their stories, it shows that love is universal. Love may come in different forms, but the essence of love is still the same. It's just a matter of welcoming it into our lives.


Beautiful, passionate, and tear-inducing, this duo is a match-made in heaven! You can also check out a few of Sarah Kay's works, and here are a few of my favorites:


This is no ordinary love letter, for it is between a tooth brush and a bicycle tire. Listen to her as she makes so many jokes and references of a bicycle tire and STILL manages to keep it romantic. 


Although the quality isn't that great, you can still hear the emotions she wanted to convey with her poetry. Listen carefully and watch your heart sigh at the end of the video.

Watch Sarah and Phil's videos on YouTube, and who knows? You just might take an interest in spoken word poetry as well.
