Some days You will feel Like a fine wine Dressed up and fantastic Complemented By your buffet of friends Some days You feel like Watered down kool aid Artificial at best Trying to be Something you aren't In a world parched of love You will find both will do However you feel Share what you have Some of you
Some days we aren't our best. But we all still need each other to refresh
With soggy sight and leaden heart Path is hard to navigate Stumbling on snakes slithering underfoot Faltering under hefty weight I want to feel light again For an hour or maybe two Since you vanished from this earth Found floating impossible to do Nothing hits senses like before Shackled by all I have lost Athough summer has graced us with warmth Surroundings are coated with a layer of frost Everything touched crumbles to ashes I am terrified to move at all If I step and the ground gives way beneath me Will be ****** to an eternal freefall I'm too puny to pull myself up from the dirt Only manage to splash in the mud Skin stretching until wounds reopen Apologies painted in blood An ocean of shame pours out my eyes Salty like the sea Taste is sour in my mouth Wish thoughts would just let me be I strive to stifle sorrows to no avail With any substance fingers can find No matter how high my body gets Unable to detach from my mind The pain in soul won't let me grow numb If going to work it would have by now Try distracting myself from the terrible truth Second of relief more than life will allow I cannot help but dwell on past moments Making my head stagger and spin Turning mistakes over and over in hands I am consumed by agony within I am hunted by savage animal Known by name of regret Haunted by ghosts all sharing your name Guaranteeing I won't ever forget
We got another sell. Another day we set sail. My purpose interconnected to a multitude of cosmic energies. Searching in the midst for higher realms to dwell. Breaking free from self composed hell. The world is my playground and all is well. If I was meant to fall. I would fail. My black *** is living lively and peacefully. An infinite soul ties to many lifelines. Free from harm and not meant to be caged in jail.
In this place poets care, share, and like Encouraging each other along. Lifting hearts up from deep trenches of Ignorance, ill traditions, misconceptions and lies. Drawing back curtains, just enough to quench the masses ceastless wondering, "There must be something more?!"
Your creative holy work has a great purpose! Escorting the hopeful aspiriant to the place Where the shadow dawns into explosive light! Gently nudging, englightening cognizence of new awareness As pieces of puzzlement merge into a glorious whole!
Dear Poets, you matter Nevermore, doubt your place!!! You are among the Inspiritors of the Earth!
Each person who writes has a purpose beyond their awareness. We never know who or how we our word will touch someone else and literally change their world. By all means caring, sharing and liking each others work. We are a community, helping each other and others outside of our community to grow.
