You are your cure
"In the end Man will be alone,sitting and lying on the same ground he toiled.He will be forgotten and his tracks will be blown and nothing remains." #tatasamuelquotes
i’m tired of being the tiny threads that weave together in band for the sheet that holds your quilled ink. for once breathe of me and allow me to be your poetry. make me exist as i do you and give me life again. sing to me the beauties of my soul through the lyrics it speaks to yours. whisper of how i make you ache. beg for me in sweet nothings through the wind so i can feel you just a breeze. #lostat3am now available on amazon.. #poetry #poetrycommunity #excerpt #poetrybooks #poetrycollection #poembooks #poemsofinstagram #poetsofinstagram #poetsofig #poetcommunity #poetsociety #poetrylovers #poemsporn #poetryporn #jiltedwords #books #collections #instapoets #igpoetsociety #words #sadlove #poems #poetryofinstagram #poetryforthesoul #writerscommunity #writersofig #bookstagram #writers
Fate Something so familiar Yet so unknown The lingering feeling That it was meant to be No logical thinking No problem solving Simply relying On instinctive feeling
Today has been a day of solitude, which is the gateway to an artist’s creativity. In the midst of remaining still and listening to the universe, I unraveled a new poem that spoke volumes!! • • Stay tuned though!! Can’t release this baby until next week since I already have something special planned for y’all this Wednesday!! • • #unravelthewords #poetry #poet #poems #love #soulful #writer #blackgirlmagic#atlantaartist #poetryisnotdead #poetryislove #poetryisart #poetryforthesoul #poeticjustice #poetic #iwrite #freedom #iwritepoetry #feelings #emotions #creativity #blackwriters #blackgirlswhowrite #solitude
False love
my darling, life is a beautiful tragedy there are doubts and insecurities behind every human mask where the brightest light shines, there you will find the darkest shadow you think you are free make a wrong move, and surely, you’ll see the consequence of the timeless law, of cause and effect the you that is I, and the me that is we, are made for death so don’t hold on, flow and thrive into the transient moments while you can the ups, the downs, the twists and turns are all part of the Divine plan. . . . . . . . . . . #writersofinstagram #poetsofinstagram #poets #poemsporn #lifequotes #deepquotes #digitallyart #qotd 🌸 #indianwriters #poetryforthesoul #soulsofpoets #womenwhowrite #goodquotes #wordswithqueens #consciousliving #elevate #mysticmessenger #motionart #plotaverse #humanist #lightworkers #karma ♻️ #newyorkwriters #awaken #lifehack #yoginilife #tinybuddha #krishnamurti #humankind #goddesses
I found myself today I found my strength, imagine that on the breath of a shy whiskered cat imagine how great to drift out of yourself Float off through the night to see your desires The beautiful feeling of being unrestrained by your skin To look upon the face you can not replace and see them smiling and happy I love to dissolve in the street lights hue and dance on the rain spinning around you You know I'm there but you can't find me No matter how hard you stare, but you can feel me If we could meet on an astral plane, we could fly together and make love in the rain 😊🙏🏻 #poetryforthesoul

Busy Bodies Strivers and the slothful, The selfish and the thoughtful The ones who’s souls aren’t lost in their wonder The ones who’s souls are on their straight and narrow path to their home in the sky way up yonder.... These busy bodies on their pace end up in the same resting place. #poemsoftheday #deeppoems #poetsofinstagram #poetrycommunity #poetryslam #poetrybooks #urdupoetrylovers #poetryislife #poetryforthesoul #poetrysociety

My loveless hands wait for you.
dad says how can I be his son, apprehensive and afraid, after all, men don't break. ma is afraid, of the depression that runs here, like diabetes. so I tell her, the next time, the guys look at me, from head to toe, and stain my sanity, I won't break , but I think, we both know by now, some promises, are too hard to keep, like the last summer ma, when I said, I'll get over the lies I've lived, one of them, that I'm gay. but last night ma, I was jealous, jealous, jealous to the point I was burninig, jealous, of the woman he'll love , the woman I never could be. it is here again, monsoon is leaving , Autumn is caressing my head, afternoons are harder, slower actually, it is here again, ma, do you remember last winter, how I suddenly stopped talking, yes, it is here, all of it, dad, I am breaking again. but this time, I am sailing on argos, trying to catch hold, of the golden fleece, there are too many wombs to block now, too many mouths to shut, too many pages to tear, too many voices to kill, nothing works now ma, you can't mop the floor clean, there is too much poetry to dust off my room, there is too much grief to not let it burn now, behaya or harami here is a generation of rebels and you can never, put the flame of a riot to rest, papa, I am sorry, but this poetry now, is going to flood the streets. -utopaingrey . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #art #tumblraesthetics #aesthetic #collageart #poetry #poetryisnotdead #poetryforthesoul #journaling #artjournaling #collageartist #peoplescreative #globalpoetcult #abstractart #expression #abstractexpressionism #teenartistsunite #artgang #peoplescreative #artjournals #poetrygram #artstagram #poetrylove #artsy #artistic #writersofinsta #cutandpaste #mixedmedia #illustration #collageart #visualjournal #artjournalpage #visualpoetry #artjournalpage
summer of 2007, i am mad, mad because my sister won't let me, sit on the side of the car where the sun burns less. summer of 2017, i am mad still, he took my heart, to keep his peace. summer of 2006, i am drunk on rasna and rooh afza, summer of 2016 i am drunk, drunk on apologies. 2005, i am screaming, the sweater my grandma knit, won't fit. 2015, i am screaming still, for the rebel in me won't let me sit still. 2007, i am running naked, through my home. 2017 the 1975 and daughter, are on repeat and this time, i am running away from home. 2011, she winks at me, we're in love i think. 2018, i can't get over him, he is stuck, like a ghazal, a ghazal, that your dad hears on rainy days, sipping coffee, while your mum spills poetry instead of dinner. on days like these, when monsoon sways, through city streets slow and aching like chembur's evenings, i used to sit and wonder, why do big faces wear small smiles, why, to poeple, monsoon tastes like poetry, why do evenings taste slow like darjeeling's rose tea, why does growing up, feel old, and ever since you left, everything tastes like books, poetry, stained notebooks. -utopiangrey . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #art #tumblraesthetics #aesthetic #collageart #poetry #poetryisnotdead #poetryforthesoul #journaling #artjournaling #collageartist #peoplescreative #globalpoetcult #abstractart #expression #abstractexpressionism #teenartistsunite #artgang #peoplescreative #artjournals #poetrygram #artstagram #poetrylove #artsy #artistic #writersofinsta #cutandpaste #mixedmedia #illustration #collageart #visualjournal #artjournalpage #visualpoetry #artjournalpage
leonardo holds kate, audience applauses, i am full, full of apprehension. i never did relate, to kajol and shah rukh. what if sylvester wants to slow dance and what if laxmi comes on a dirtbike? what if emma snaps her fingers and saves garfield amd plays spidey? would you leave the hall if romeo kisses romeo or would you stay like you did when he waited for juliet? what if basanti grows chest hair and starts to fight, would you cheer? what if kishore sings for him, would your dad still play him, every sunday morning? what if mira has a thousand men lined up, is she pious still? what if a nameplate said mr and mr or mrs and mrs would you still stay for chai? what if ganga had a buzzcut and vishnu braids and knots? what if she rolled a joint and he had cold feet? don't tell me i don't fit the norms, maybe the norms don't fit me. can i come to your windowsill at one am like they do in the movies, can you bring me home, calling me yours, we're free now, but are we criminals still? -utopiangrey . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #art #tumblraesthetics #aesthetic #collageart #poetry #poetryisnotdead #poetryforthesoul #journaling #artjournaling #collageartist #peoplescreative #globalpoetcult #abstractart #expression #abstractexpressionism #teenartistsunite #artgang #peoplescreative #artjournals #poetrygram #artstagram #poetrylove #artsy #artistic #writersofinsta #cutandpaste #mixedmedia #illustration #collageart #visualjournal #artjournalpage #visualpoetry #artjournalpage
i cut my hair, mother says i'm a mess. i rose my voice against everything but kids raised in religious households, don't speak. we stay nervous instead, and i am nervous now. so tell me, is my shirt alright? is flamboyance alright? can men be something but bodies of silence? tell me, everytime i say fuck you to the mard you tried to find in me, does it burn, do i burn, burn like HCl burn your skin? do kids speak? should i speak? or should i leave, all my grief, like a secret letter, taped at the back of my drawer, when i come to the dinner table, or do i speak? tell me now, do i now, move my tounge and let it slip, or do i lock all of me in the epiglottis and choke on the truth? tell me, what burns your ears more, your dad's abuse, or my femisnist poetry? will father forgive me, now that i have pledged my allegiance to the woman in me? when i talk about the obscenity of men do i, cut through your epidermis and play poison with your bloodstream? or does it hurt more when your kid comes home with an STD? look at me, will you cut me like meat when i tell you I've lived shamelessly or is it tuesday today? is it? so tell me, why is it so, that the truth gets acidic, why is it so, you stock lies like an antacid, tell me, why am i on fire, is culture the pyre you'll burn me upon, am i the witch of your village, now that i am drunk on veritaserum? -utopaingrey . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #art #tumblraesthetics #aesthetic #collageart #poetry #poetryisnotdead #poetryforthesoul #journaling #artjournaling #collageartist #peoplescreative #globalpoetcult #abstractart #expression #abstractexpressionism #teenartistsunite #artgang #peoplescreative #artjournals #poetrygram #artstagram #poetrylove #artsy #artistic #writersofinsta #cutandpaste #mixedmedia #illustration #collageart #visualjournal #artjournalpage #visualpoetry #artjournalpage
[A morning after terrorism] In a room painted with sorrow The white cotton that draped our skin Reeked of a grieving summer That lingers after You bury a beloved For we had burried In our hearts The warm suffocation of a monsoon And kept it Like a daughter keeps The sunlight of a household - safe and after the gunpowder settled on our mourning azure skies We were only an arrangement Of every grieving sigh A doleful pyre couldn't burn. . .
