- I gently placed my beats of belief in us into your hands while they were still learning how to vibe to growing, learning how to accommodate to knowing how to hold a heart too full for half notes to fill, a love too wide to measure by measures and, I wasn't ready to witness you sleepwalk through this reverie of resistance; you weren't ready to be written in a key of commitment. I wasn't ready, to conduct your deliverance from childish things into discipline, into maturity; and you surely, weren't ready to not be another Dorothy. Clicking of heels only serve to annoy me, and we're a long way from Kansas. I was bleeding too much trust to fuss with your tourniquet of excuses, and you were needing too much lust to trust your veins to not abuse it. I was a future of steady. You were a future of nevers; now both of our pasts are presently tethered to wishful thinking and lately, I've been sinking into drinking the remnants of my faith in love, to bottoms up the heights of us now several sob stories high and we, we weren't going to survive, not this night, not this time. Tonight, they'll hose more than our blood down the gutters; purge these streets clean of could be lovers. Tonight, our love will not have a body to autopsy. Obvious, will be the cause of death; time stamped with regret. - #heavenlypoetry #thewritersdiscovery #omypoetry #herheartpoetry #newschoolpoetry #bymepoetryamerica #thinkers_and_writers #doortooursouls #ThePoetsPost #writers_den_ #writersnetwork #newheartbeats #globalpoetcult #voicesoftheworld #PackPoetry #poetry #bleedingsoulpoetry #poemsofinstagram #wordpusher #therainofpoetry #UntwineMe #spilledinck #tribeofpoets #madewords #AplaceforWriters #worldwidepoetry #Write_O_Mania #thoughtfvl #freethegrid #etchmein
I know it's been awhile since I've posted poetry. I'd been so busy with wedding planning and marathon training, but now they're over and I'm hoping to start writing regularly again. Thanks everyone for sticking around. 😊🔹️I'm working on a poetry collection about grief, loss and healing, that I hope to share one day in book format. Here's one I wrote in June. I no longer write just about my dad, but now my mother in law, too. She passed away in March which is why I took a hiatus so suddenly. This collection means so much to me because it is my way of honoring them. Thanks for reading. 😁 #poetry #poetrycommunity #spilledink #poetryisnotdead #poetsofinstagram #poets #poetsofinstagram #poets #poetsofig #micropoetry #newheartsbeatstrong #newheartbeats #micropoetry #bymepoetry #bymepoetryamerica #penguinpoetrynyc #untwineme #untwinemeusa #madewords #herheartpoetry #omypoetry #artlixirfresh #micropoetryfeatures #poetrytribe #thegreyscene #TMSwriter #theliteralscript #engravedinink #globalwordsmiths #cornerblogs #grief #loss #death

My Suitors ✏ 📖 💕 . . . Writing, writing helps me breathe again. But reading warms me up again. Writing lets me pour out all my fears, wishes, and desires. Reading helps me let go and drift away. Yet writing clears my head again. See, I don't know whom to love more. Because one helps me create and the other helps me escape. If each were a man, I'd probably marry them both. But they are both possessive, selfish, and in need of my full attention. So I choose myself so that I may carry on loving them both. Both fill me with love and joy. Both make me weak and teary. It's the greatest love triangle ever not known to man. More so than, Bella, Jacob, & Edward, or Life, Love, and Death. I spread myself thin creating space for them separately. Because even though they go together so beautifully, they both love me more entirely. So what do I do? Who do I choose? I think Jane Austen had the right idea when she came up with the name Pride and Prejudice. The tale old question still resides, which is more important. pride or prejudice. I think what most people fail to see is that neither the word pride or prejudice is most important. It's the word AND that reigns supreme. Why must I choose? I love them each equally and completely, and it's the 21st century. A girl can have whatever she wants. So in the end, I choose AND. And continue to make love to words as they make sweet sweet love to me. And I have never been more happy. . . . . #writing #reading #shewrites #girlswhowrite #healingposts #writeoutlife #globalagelive #theliteralscript #shewrites #womenwhowrite #therainofpoetry #poetryaccount #newheartbeats #worldofpoetry #lifeofawriter #ilovereading #writerslife #passions #deltaintern #pinklotuspoetry #silverleafpoetry #wwqtribe #packpoetry #herheartpoetry #penandpaper #literature #janeausten #heartsonfire #thecultivatedfool #prideandprejudice #spilledink

- If I am anything like other men, I'd convince my heart to arrest yours with the conviction that I'm more than a conflicted villain, contriving convict conning hearts with the art of bondage into solitary confinement they'd take pride to confide in, only to realize they've been sentenced to the weakest tense of this sentence: "I'm sorry, it's not you it's me." How weary, can one be from hearing the same sorry series of apologetic symphonies? Fortunately, I was never here to conduct research in the field of your patience, but if you need further persuasion listen to the cadence of my eyes and how they apologize for all the men that have wasted your time, your energies, and your efforts to rhyme with timeless memories. If I am anything like other men, loyalty would only pay me royalties. I'd be too committed to myself, to have you fitted for anything more than my shelf; but I'd still book you for a night under my covers, place your respect on my nightstand right next to the others, shed the intimates of your innocence, just, like the others litter my floor with your worth just like the others, 'til you can no longer recover who you were before you came. In the night, your remorse will envelope you in shame. In the light, your regrets will still answer to my name just, like, the others... And if I'm anything like other men, I'll have you confusing exit signs for welcome mats, yet demanding why you still come back for validation, for closure, for reasons not to lose your composure at the thought of me while I am more than merry to leave you to marry the footsteps of my silence to alter the echo of my departure. Your resolution, will be encrypted in the bouquet of my defiance thrown over the shoulder of my cowardice but, I'm not anything like other men and normally, I'd defend said statement, but the most worthless conversation is telling you who I am, after showing you who I'm not. Perfect, I'm not. Worth it, I am. - #heavenlypoetry #thewritersdiscovery #omypoetry #herheartpoetry #newschoolpoetry #bymepoetryamerica #thinkers_and_writers #doortooursouls #ThePoetsPost #writers_den_ #writersnetwork #newheartbeats #globalpoetcult
Remember, in the times when you are sad, how you felt, what you wish you had, where you wish you were with your goals, and then do the things your sad self would want you to do while you are feeling happy. Prepare yourself for seasons of darkness so disaster relief comes quicker than the last time. // Learn your patterns . . . .

This time I am showing up for myself! 😌🌱 It proved more difficult than I thought. I knocked on doors she closed once or twice... but this time I will not wait outside. This time I will close them too. This time I am not lost and confused. This time I am present with myself. This time I am present with these feelings. This time I accept myself for everything she could not. This time I will hold myself and tell myself it is okay. Because for the first time, it IS okay. All I needed was me... and that is the most beautiful feeling I have ever felt! 😇 . #writer #quotes #igwriters #writersofig #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #instawriters #igwritersclub #wordporn #poetsofig #igpoets #poetsofinstagram #igpoetry #qotd #poetrycommunity #quoteoftheday #womenwhowrite #wordswithqueens #wordswithkings #theliteralscript #poemsporn #writersdenamerica #newheartbeats #bymepoetryamerica #bymepoetryeurope #bymepoetry #artlixirpoetry #writers_den_ #herheartpoetry #writersnetwork
It was more time spent in forever with you. Thank you for reading.
Happy birthday Jean! @etch.me.in This is one of our favourites of you! Also because it comes with your very own music. Then you carry us to Paris! * * We love that you support other writers through your challenges and live seasons you do! It is magnificent that you love each and every poem that is sent to you! Like little children brought to you. That you see the beauty in this world! * * Lots of love to you! You make a difference in this world! Keep shining! * * You can read his words here: “It was an Autumn in Paris where we, sipped porcelain dreams from a teacup in a French café or, was it a Fall in Venice? These leaves always seem seasoned in leaving me almost as breathless, as you. * But this August gust tugged the corner of your lips with something a little more ominous, than I'd like to admit. * And that's when, I felt myself unwillingly exit the train of your thoughts that night as if, to dine on your departure for the last time. * I sensed no good in your bye, no good in this night but you, you felt at peace in no longer training your mind to lose track of me. * And I, I'll rest well in this reverie of unrest, into this locomotion of your forgetfulness of us, as long as you will never be derailed by me, again. * Mon cherie, this sunset's on me. I'm sorry, for getting off on your stop it's just that, I could've sworn we had a future to board. Could've sworn, we had a future...” - * Feel free to follow his inspirations. You always can tag Jean @etch.me.in * Wish him a wonderful birthday in the comments, lovelies 💕 * @voicesofpoets featured poet and artist is @etch.me.in We think that your art and words are beautiful. . .

Full night of dreams . Inspired by #inkedwhispersblsd by @sparklesandink and @blckins_aj18 prompt “tasting sunlight”; #pppchallengenov18 from @papersandpoetry prompt “Hunter”; and #NovemberFalls18 from @fallspoetry prompt “Topaz sunlight”
- For once, I'd like someone to dip into me as if I were their ocean of serenity; dive deep into my tranquility and remember what it is to breathe while submerged in my peace, one burning to be unburdened lung at a time. Come, like you remember me being the buoyancy in your being. Come, as if your battled bones have been baptized in my arms of armistice, and have resurrected donning dawn and mist. Come, as if my forgiveness was a size that fits none but you, and stay, like you remember my forgetfulness of unholy deeds. Stay, as if you're sure my waves of protest to your departure will always break upon your shores. Stay, as if I've never beached my broken reasons to retreat on your low tides. Stay, as if the signs to my troughs wouldn't rip currents through your patience. Stay, knowing full well, that I know the taste of the salt in your tears is no different than the salt from my pores while perspiring all the reasons you should leave, you should've left, you should've... never had to come to this, again. But, please, stay. I pray you, drown into me, one last time. - #heavenlypoetry #thewritersdiscovery #omypoetry #herheartpoetry #newschoolpoetry #bymepoetryamerica #thinkers_and_writers #doortooursouls #ThePoetsPost #writers_den_ #writersnetwork #newheartbeats #globalpoetcult #voicesoftheworld #PackPoetry #poetry #bleedingsoulpoetry #poemsofinstagram #wordpusher #therainofpoetry #UntwineMe #spilledinck #tribeofpoets #madewords #AplaceforWriters #worldwidepoetry #Write_O_Mania #thoughtfvl #freethegrid #etchmein

Fall🍂 . This is one of the poems featured on my book. The name will be released soon so stay tuned! ♥️
I have so much to say, so much to express -I fail to find the right words. . I have so much to read, so much to learn -I fail to find the point from where I can begin. . I have so much to see, so much to explore -I don’t have a clear vision anymore. . I have so many things to try, so many adventures planned -I don’t know how to execute them. . I am much more, and have to become much more -I just don’t know my own identity. . In the midst of this competitive world, where everyone is starving and striving to be, I just sit there, just knowing that I have something to be. . follow @caffeine_writer for more work! 🌚 . #writers #writerscommunity #writersofig #writersofinstagram #poetscommunity #poetsofinstagram #creativewriting #emotions #avoicefromfaraway #newheartbeats #theblackscreen #untwineme #untwinemeindia #seemesimplygeorgy #bibliophile #bymepoetry #bymepoetryasia #girlwhowrites #drunkpoetsociety #omypoetry #silverleafpoetry #childrenofink #bleedingsoulpoetry #tribeofpoets #herworldisgold #heartofpoets #worldofpoets #globalpoetcult #sadness #caffeinewriter
