So many poems
and stories
have gone unwritten
due to fear of not being good enough

A Friend
I am thankful for each goodbye spoken to me

The most painful are never said,

Never explained

running around the neighborhood
longing for your mellifluous voice
my heart has been begging for a taste
of your sweet affection
since you left a bitter goodbye
in my rusted mailbox
the roof used to be for stargazing
now a memorial of our love
the fireflies line up next to me
as if to replace your presence
denial, denial, denial
driving me hysterical
all alone in our suburban little town
hi i’m scared this is my first post

He cried like rain
And screamed like thunder

And I

I was a quiet river deafened by his storms

It’s a different kind of happy
when you know
the words are just for you

Last night I dreamt of you
Once again I was young
You took my hand and smiled at me
We walked a while and laughed a lot
No shadows interrupted us
Only light whiter then white was in my dream
Warmth engulfed my soul
The  air I breathed was yours alone
You held my hand only  in my dream
My heart forever

Let my silence teach you

what my words

did not
This year, do not explain yourself (especially repeatedly) to someone who does not listen. Let your silence be your response. Let your happiness be your response. Let your peace be your authenticity.

you never asked to read my poetry
maybe that was the sign.
i told you i wrote for fun,
you shrugged and moved on.
red flags went up everywhere, but i didn’t bother looking

Why do people
not notice
suffering?

Why do others
not see
my pain?

Why do they
say that they
didn't realise?

Why do I always
have to
explain?

Perhaps because you can
see the light
in the darkness

But not
the darkness
in the light

It's easy to hear
the noise
in the silence

But hard to hear
the silence
in the noise

So look carefully
Listen carefully
For those quiet, subtle signs
But above all
And most importantly
Be kind
Can anyone relate?
