Ghost of Jupiter
burying me alive
in problems

but let me instead
drown myself in poetry

into worlds of beauty
myself in imagination
until I am unable to surface again into reality

swallowing stanzas
gulping in each word  

letting the current of creativity
take me wherever it flows


I will find solace


I will set my heart free

as I lose myself
and drown in the sea of poetry
I want to thank each poet here for sharing their hearts, imagination, perspectives, their soul here on hello poetry. I have said it many times before that I have often spent my restless nights finding solace in your words. I appreciate you all more than I think I could ever express.
Sometimes I wonder
If those who've never experienced the grueling lows of depression
Truly experience the moment
When the sun catches your soul in just the right way
And you finally feel warmth in your bones.

Was it the look you gave me
When I walked in the room unannounced
Or on the fourth floor off to the side,
With my face nuzzled in your neck,
Soaking in your smell,
Wishing every breath I took could be like this one.
What about my fingers
Running through those tangled curls,
Touching all the special parts of you
While our bodies dance and swoon together.
And then there’s everything small,
Like the way you say my name surprised,
Three knocks on the bathroom wall,
The magical message you leave
When you give me a call.

For a time we loved in a bubble of bliss
I never knew I could miss--
But I'll see you there tonight
When I dream of your kiss.

I fell in love with life
And it broke my heart
Alex B Sep 2019
the smell of concrete
after a rain storm
was enough to soothe my soul
and tape up my broken pieces
