Welcome to Ivy’s World

I’m happy you’re here.

I’m Ivy Blackwater, a poet who writes romantic women’s fiction, lives in her imagination most of the time, and appreciates that you’ve taken a moment to stop by. Sensual, psychological, and fantastical poetry and prose are my jam.

I’m working toward publication because my soul dares to dream and my mind is up for the challenge. Someday, I will share happy news related to that segment of my journey. For now, my words can be found here, on Instagram, and on Twitter.

If you’re looking for introspective reading material with a sensual flair, I invite you click the menu. But first, how about a sample?

Here is one of my favorite posts:


Listen to me read Whispers

sweet words kiss my breast

cadences catch my breath

whispers only I know

swelling my heart


anticipated whispers only I feel

dragonfly wishes beat inside

flutters catch my breath

filling my heart


adored whispers only I love

sensual intoxication reveals me

reciprocations catch my breath

floating my heart











trickery of trust

bleed upon beautiful blades

waiting for nevermore

smiles catch my breath

felling my heart


disappointed whispers

only I know love made to vanity

pretty promises breathed through false teeth

hurts catch my breath

felling my heart


guarded whispers

only I see sweet lies walking other ways

cadences steal my breath

felling my heart


betrayed whispers

only I know expectations ground to sand on which I stand

sinking my heart

sinking my all into dark

until true love hears

until true love sees

until true love feels







and holds out a steady hand for me to grasp

Thank you for visiting!
