Entry for #julypoetrycontest2017 by @ironandword • • if it needs to be entitled, I'll entitle it "Recovery" • • • • By the bittersweet past experiences, I tried to learn how to heal, forgive, and let go. This poem means so deep for me, because it was inspired by my life experience, growing up in an ironic environment. • • #poetic #poetry #poesie #poesia #poema #poems #poetsofig #wordporn #poetryporn #poetrycommunity #instagram #daily #gainpost #rfr #literature #literacy #writers #spilledink #spilledthoughts #inkstagram #herheartpoetry #bymepoetry #bmp #bymepoetrynewbie #ntwins #heartwrds #templeofwords #subtlepoetz
♠ Your kiss resembles the sea in which I was baptized #forever #always #amour #love #dark #darkness #darkromance #poetry #poetrycommunity #past #time #whereveryouare
When I gaze at the sea,  I think of my father.  He says being wound up  Makes it easy to joke At my expense,  Like shooting fish in a barrel.  He doesn't realise that  He too is a sardine  Steeped in brine, Using the veil of comedy like  A distraction, As we lie there anticipating impact  Of each shell. We plunge faster and deeper  Than anchors, to places without light.  Where deep sea divers would never go For pearls. Our lungs are fire  Filling quickly with water And we can barely vocalise what  Is happening but watch as the Bubbles stream and explode.  The only heat in the watery abyss  Is the flow of tears in silent disguise. But unlike the sea  No one can see the deep blue  On the inside of our minds.  And how you don't even need To be drowning to sometimes  Find it hard to breathe. ©word.smyth
