I sit unreachable My eyes glazed, This mind of mine UnRehearsed, The best days/nights I ever lived We're between the ages Of 19-23 I've been a zombie since 20... Understand why friends Don't call Or catch up, I've always been unreachable As I lay in the dark with my eyes Closed As I blast Air Supply, The Cure & Christian Death, I am just drifting Passing the time away, Swimming in regrets I don't have the gift Of menstruation To release me from All of this, I was born fractured, Incomplete, wounded... All my words lay bare, open,torn I've always been unreachable The best days/nights Have passed, I am just drifting Passing the time away, Swimming in regrets I don't have the gift Of menstruation To release me from All of this, This heart,body,soul Of mine Unrehearsed. #poemsporn #poetryofinstagram #poemofinstagram #poemoftheday eday #poemofthenight
. "Dawn to Dusk, Morning to Night We Laugh, Smile, Cuddle and Fight Hopes and Fears in Distant Sight Memories turn Black and White. Still remember your touch on my skin No line between Pleasure and Sin Our Lives took different spin Choke out the sorrow, Breath in. On a cross-road, we might meet Surely my heart will skip a beat, To remember our story's feat Your cold hands against my heat. Could have done so much more Maybe another pleasure score. But time can be such a whore Strike you down in heart's core. Life moves on and we drag forth, Finding in life, True North. A Goal, a Purpose, Divine oath, New Love and Joy, for us both." . ~Dyapreet Singh Follow my work: @voicesbydsd #poetry #poets #poemoftheday #poetsofinstagram #work #goal #life #love #joy #breakingup #breakup #movingon #follow #write #feelings #feel #sadness #lovepoems #lovepoetry #separateways
"You need to be strong", they said. I had to be. I knew why and so i tried to be. And yet, everything only drifted away, Away from me. I stumbled and i fell. Then i heard the voices whisper again, "You need to be stronger " So, i had to be. But i wasn't. And so, i hid myself behind a mask, Made myself look strong. But trust me, i wasn't. And you didn't see that. I kept my secret. I feared that my mask would fall off And i feared you would see. I feared that you would see my skin, unveiled, My cuts and my stitches. You don't want to see my scars. Trust me, you don't. For then, you will know who i am And i fear that too. Because i don't know who i am anymore. Don't touch me, i say. I have thorns all over me. You will only bleed and you don't want that. Trust me, i don't want that either. You can't break me, not anymore. I have my armour Made of every stone you threw at me. Its heavy. You can't break me, i assure you, you can't But I'm drowning, i can't breath. The mask won't fall off anymore. Albeit, i want it off me. They said i had to be strong. This is what i am now. I live in darkness and you are too scared; You have seen only the light, the colours but not the gray and not the void. You think you can save me? Try and you will drown with me. And trust me, you don't want that.

When I decided to walk the line I knew it wouldn't be straight... To You But a zigzag of turns and twists Falls and stalls, many lessons too That would eventually get me... To You And what an adventure it was when I finally...Found You B.J.Cacace #poemsofig #poemoftheday #poemsofinstagram #poetryofig #poetryisnotdead #poetrycommunity #poetryofinstagram #spilledink #spilledinkpoetry #womanwhowrite #walkedtheline #zigzag #turnsandtwists #fallsandstalls #lessons #adventure #scribemyheart
On a terrace, In the sun, With my Son. With my Sun. He lifted his imperfect hand. Felt the faults of a million men, And the darkness blew away like sand.

Ketika langit menjingga Menyore menikmati sepoi sepoi angin Memandangnya sampai dia meredup Menurunkan segala hasratnya Oh senja Aku rindu seperti ini Menanti Dan memandangmu Menghabiskan banyak waktu hanya untuk dirimu Oh senja Jadilah selalu cantik Jadilah selalu yang aku tunggu Jadilah kau yang sejati nan anggun Elok tak letih pada waktu yang selalu tak tentu . .

"Why can't I see you clearly, where I live?" - my poem was inspired by this photograph which I took on an evening walk in the mountains. Read the poem here if you have not.

Sebentar saja Mungkin itu lebih baik Tapi sebentar saja Juga tidak baik Terlebih jika Sebentar saja Hanya untuk sesuatu tak seharusnya Sebentar saja Ada waktu nanti yang harus dibayar lebih Sebentar saja Terkadang juga membuat hati teriris perih Sebentar saja Terkadang juga tak diharapkan Sebentar saja Seringnya lebih baik tidak sama sekali . . .

Together we row into the fresh water, In that old wooden boat with grooves in its skin, And in the middle of the waters, Away from the earthly chaos, With the sky as the roof, And silence our cover, I read you my book of conversations; To watch you smile and embrace my heart against yours. #musingsbyrajashree -------------------------------------------------- Picture credit : @bran_don (An amazing artist with a unique flair in photography, who adds life to experimental photography beautifully) ----------------------------------------------------- #amwriting #muse #lovepoems #wordsworth #authors #writerslife #shewrites #spilledink #spokenwords #creativity #creativewriting #abstractart #experimentalphotography #abstract #poetrycolab #colaboration #colab

\ “He came into my life like a hurricane in summer Devastating all my foundations and my beliefs Taking my heart and my mind away Then he left as he came Like the sun in winter His absence let my world freeze And he left nothing but a deep void Where the blossoming trees used to be I gave up all hopes And, in turn, I left this world of mine Snow covers everything now Like blank sheets in deserted houses” - #poetryoftheday “The Lost World” © Xuân Guignot ~ April 29th, 2016 #write #writer #writing #writersofig #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #prose #poetry #poem #thought #thoughts #poetryoftheday #poemoftheday #poetrycommunity #poetrycommunityofinstagram #poetrycommunityofig #poetryofinstagram #poetryofig #poemsofinstagram #poemofig #frenchpoetry #frenchpoet - #artwork “Snowy Castle Wallpaper” © Ybarrapaul on #deviantart: http://ybarrapaul.deviantart.com/art/Snowy-Castle-Wallpaper-340330588

🔥 sometimes damage control IS foresight (zainab does more poetry bc insomnia)

"Today I am wearing lacy black underwear For the sole purpose of knowing I am wearing them. And underneath that? I am absolutely naked. And I’ve got skin. Miles and miles of skin; I’ve got skin to cover all my thoughts like saran wrap that you can see through to what leftovers are inside from the night before. And despite what you might think, my skin is not rough; nor is it bullet proof. My skin is soft, and smooth, and easily scarred. But that doesn’t matter, right? You don’t care about how soft my skin is. You just want to hear about what my fingers do in the dark. But what if all they do is crack open windows? So I can see lightening through the clouds. What if all they crave is a jungle gym to climb for a taste of fresher air? What if all they reach for is a notebook or a hand to hold? But that’s not the story you want. You are licking your lips and baring your teeth. Just once I would like to be the direction someone else is going. I don’t need to be the water in the well. I don’t need to be the well. But I’d like to not be the ground anymore. I’d like to not be the thing people dig their hands in anymore. Some girls know all the lyrics to each other’s songs. They find harmonies in their laughter. Their linked elbows echo in tune. What if I can’t hum on key? What if my melodies are the ones nobody hears? Some people can recognize a tree, A front yard, and know they’ve made it home. How many circles can I walk in before I give up looking? How long before I’m lost for good. It must be possible to swim in the ocean of the one you love without drowning. It must be possible to swim without becoming water yourself. But I keep swallowing what I thought was air. I keep finding stones tied to my feet." - Hannah Baker, 13 Reasons Why ________________________________ #skullcrusher #sc #quotes #qotd #inspiration #poetry #poemoftheday #sayings #blessed #motivationalquotes #disappointed #loveyourself #healyourself #deepthoughts #midnightfeelings
| Lovable | ---------- We all have those moments when we do or say things that we wish we didn't, when we are a vengeful, angry, moody, less that fun version of ourselves. But there is that one person who sees and looks past that and loves you just as much if not more.... Marry that person cause God knows marriage is hard. ---------- #PoetsOfANation
I do love sharing this life with such beautiful people 😌 what are you grateful for tonight lovelies?

And though I focused on other things, still I thought of nothing other. All else became a filter of representation, in metaphor or blueprint or thinking I was seeing the future, brain and visual cortex, soundbox and scent, the crystal ball and there I am, tiny, held down by invisible back-story . . . entirely surrounded . . . when suddenly the snow globe exploded and I flooded out set free #poetrysociety #poetrycommunity #poemoftheday #artdaily #originalart #outsiderart #psychedelicart #lowbrowart #expressionism #popsurrealism #pencildrawing #instaarts #australianart #arttherapy #drawingoftheday
In London this weekend so thought I'd bring along my poetry littering. : : Its been a long time my old friend You delivered the world Now we stand atop your deck 40,000 runners astern Cheeks puffed out Blowing a heavy squall That couldn't extinguish your fires Carried you On a tremendous sea of charity vests And mile six waves Sailors busy in fancy dress Forever may a fair wind carry you On our dry and grateful shores My old friend : : : #igpoets #poet #poetrycommunity #451press #poetsofinstagram #writersofinstagram #instapoetry #writerscommunity #poem #instawriters #shortpoem #originalpoetry #poetryinmotion #words #poetrycommunity #writersofinstagram #spilledink #poemoftheday #instawriters #igpoetry #igwriters #poetry  #freepoetry #foundpoetry #streetpoetry #streetart #guerillaart #Guerillapoetry #cuttysark #greenwich

Day 30 - "The Hollow Men" by T.S. Eliot. It's the last day of the poetry month which means this is my last poetry recommendation. This is only the last part out of 5 of "The Hollow Men" and the last four lines are probably the most quoted lines in poetry. #NationalPoetryMonth #TheHollowMen #TSEliot // 30.04.17 #poetry #poetrycommunity #poetryofig #poetryporn #poetrygram #poem #poems #monochrome #monochromatic #minimal #minimalist #minimalism #instapoem #instapoetry #instapoet #poet #prose #poetryoftheday #poetryisnotdead #word #words #writersofinstagram #writer #Writing #poemoftheday #poetsofinstagram #classic
. Let me take your time, Let me bathe in your fear, Let me give you a smile, And wipe away your tears, Let me close to you, And turn your dark sky, blue, Let me break your wall, Let me walk in, Let me be your home, If you just let me, Let me show you love, Like no other, Let me hold you close, Let me be your lover, Let me break your bitter heart, So we can share mine, Let me come close, Let me see through your eyes, Let me speak the words, That no longer serve meaning to you, Let me be your world, I will stay true, . #doc #doc_poetry #poetry #poem #pic #word #poemofinsta #poemofig #poemofinstagram #poemoftheday #poetryforthesoul #poetryofig #picoftheday #wordoftheday #poetryofinsta #poetryofinstagram #poetrycommunity #writers #write #poetrywriters #africanpoem #africanpoetry #april #letme #lover #heart #true
