triple threat; really not sure where this came from, but i thought of the first line while brushing my teeth and the rest just happened! #rebeccawinterwrites #ibelieveyou
She never stops Never stops shaking, So scared of sleeping And letting the dreams take hold, They claw at her insides And tear old wounds Wide open, Weepings not an option So she keeps it inside, The tears never permitted to fall, Her insides are drowning And she’s sinking, Slipping away, Soon she’ll be out of reach. She’s sorry Oh so sorry That she’s incapable of Believing she’s strong, Sorry that she couldn’t fix it Be good enough for you. She’s sorry she gets so Nervous that she can’t speak To you; She doesn’t mean to seem rude, It’s just initiations, Starting conversations, It’s impossible to do, When she’s thinking: You’d rather she didn’t exist And she’s just an annoyance You’d never miss, That you’d be happiest If she never spoke to you at all... She’s thinking she’s just an endurance test to you And when those feelings hit, She’s incapable Of speaking to you, Despite the fact she’s dying to. She trusts you immensely And that’s why she’s afraid Because those she trusts the most, They never stay, She manages to scare them off in some way. She’s so afraid That she won’t be enough, That she’ll hurt you, That she’s an embarrassment to you. Because friends to her They mean more Than the worlds heart. #poetsofinstagram #poetsofinstagram #poetess #writer #poemsporns #byhopebaxter #friendship #anxiety #sorry #itsnotherfault #anxietyisreal #poetrycommunity #poeticsoul #poems #poetry_addicts #poetsofig #poetryislove #writerscommunity #readersofinstagram #read #live #dontbeafraid #mentalhealth #insecurities #youmatter #moretosay
Frontier Stunned, I follow him up the stairs~ we climb out of my head. “See,” he says, “it’s here, it’s here.” ~Wendy Candida Havlir Cherry, from my little book of poetry, The Reach is (W)holy, inspired by the sacred. . . This poem was written probably 15 or so years ago and was one of my first. It came from a dream, where I was being led out of the limited space that I understood as “me” and into a realm of something quite different. The “he” in the dream, is my now husband. The space we arrived in was mystical and boundless. Sometimes I forget how limiting my mind can be, how repetitive and simple some of my over-domesticated thoughts are. When I remember again, I climb out of the limitations and into the heart of vastness~a space where my sacred truth lives, unfettered and wild and full of possibility. This is the path I choose~ to uncover and altar the sacred in everything. This is my devotion. Sometimes the old tattered weavings of my thought require tending by the fire. We are all devoted to something. Whatever we are focused on in the moment is our devotion, at least on some level. This pink marble heart arrived yesterday from my sister. It is generous and full, like the commitment I come back to as a practice, over and over again. And every time I forget and remember again, the devotion is fuller, pinker, stronger. #bhakti #poetess #dreamtime #gypsy #soul #heart #radiance #frontier #shine #limitless #youaresacred #shegathersbeauty

keep it sacred 𓁧
Not from The Butterflies Have Left series... This is something I wrote a while back...not much has changed, not how everyone else thinks they know exactly how a woman should be, well everyone except the woman. Well imagine being a female then and somehow never seemingly measuring up to these definitions conjured by people that couldn't walk a day in your goddess shoes. Constantly suffocated by cultural norms meant to constrain both mind and body. Extremely infuriating and intrusive questions normalized under the guise of politeness!!! Making you feel like your woman is more burden than blessing!!! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #poet #poetess #woman #selflove #bodypolicing #poetsofig #poetsofinstagram #poetrycommunity #buttonpoetry #herheartcommunity #herheartpoetry #poems #positivevibes #poetryporn #poetry
T H O U G H T . Some a reflection from Kahlil Gibran for your day: . -How shall you rise beyond your days and nights unless you break the chains which at the dawn of your understanding have fastened around your noon hour?- . Don’t be weighed down by your anticipation of what the future holds. Focus to steady your mind into this moment, this day. For none of our futures are certain, but what we do with now can be fashioned into good for ourselves and others. . Too esoteric? Helpful? Let me know in the comments below! #gibran #theprophet
... «Et tornes una flor, i tot el cos et puja cap aquí.» M’he torçat. Pura llum. Tots els dibuixos que sé calcar no valen. Corregeix: «No, si la flor no compta. És que era tota groga. Te m’he tornat una flor groga.

#mirakee Imspired by the song “ID” Kygo #workout #music #vibes #happy #feelings #youtime #ideas #magical #fun #relax #repost Experience the vibrations. Can you feel it? Do you hear the music? It’s all around you. Move, feel, smile, and let it be youuuuuuu. Let it consume you. Can you feel the music pouring into you? Every step goes with the beat, step step move. Who are you? You have transformed to a new level of content. You are confident without the ego. You are at the climax. You are in pure bliss.
Hold You #soshiniesingh

TEN LIFE LESSONS, I LEARNT ON INSTAGRAM. . . 🦋 1. ‘Don’t trust strangers’, they say, but every friend, was once a stranger. . . 🦋 2. No number of ‘Likes’ will make you happy, if you are not happy with yourself. . . 🦋 3. Post love, get envelopes of emotions, back. 😍 . . 🦋 4. Real Connections are made, even if there is bad network to begin with. . . 🦋 5. Every picture, has it’s own place. . . 🦋 6. Number of likes, do not depend on the quality of your work. . . 🦋 7. You will find, many selfish people, but you will also find many selfless souls. . . 🦋 8. No lies, can eclipse your truth. . . 🦋 9. Every post, is a mirror of who are. Handle it with care. . . 🦋 10.

When I met you, I never thought I'd fall so hopelessly in love with you Gabrielle
If you love her, then love her well. It’s time you get your act together as I believe you can and become that man. The one who will save her from those rotten folks. Men who peruse her pages, a bunch of perverted blokes. Save her, be her Prince Charming. Hell, she’s breaking my heart, part the seas in between, give her a fresh start. A chance not only a glance in her direction. Don’t be contrite to her person, rather make her world right and full of hope. Joy can be found in the humble that it takes to admit the truth. For both you and her show her you are the opposite of crestfallen. That you are honored to hold her hand, be noble and glad for what you’ve found. She needs you to go public. #i_am_luv_u_madly #poeticjustice #instapoet #fiction #poems #author #poemsofinstagram #words #poeticsighs #poetess #wordswithqueens #womenwhowrite #poem #poemsofinstagram #poetrycommunity #poem #bestsellingauthor #poetryisnotdead #writer #writing #writersofinstagram #poemsofig #writersofig #poetscorner #wordporn #poetry #writerscorner #spilledink #poetryisnotdead #ig #writerscommunity #writersofinstgram #writer #globalpoetcult
I breathe in freedom- I breathe out constraint I hold in liberty - I liberate limitation. I covet fancy- I dwell in the most ordinary. I weave in complexity- I contemplate the epitome of simplicity. I fall head over heels- I lose interest I crave for a confidant- I choose abandonment. I preach truth- I practice skepticism. I embrace the goddess within, I exhibit the beauty of heathen. I fly in the heaven- I burn in the hell. I’m everything but me, you surely can’t tell. I am something - I bewitch nothing I radiate stability- I walk and I contradict. I conquer the kingdom- I destroy the palace. The battle is within me, the battlefield is my solace. . . . . . . . #AthenaWrites #Artpoetess #poetry #poet #poetforlife #poetryforsoul #artofpoets #spilledinkpoetry #spokenwordpoetry #writing #writer #artofwriters #portrait #photography #art #aesthetic #nepali #nepaliwriter #wilderpoetry #wordsgasm #poetess

He loved afternoon naps. So much so that when he’d come to visit our home in Florida, he’d find a nice shaded spot under an orange tree and snooze. I too love those little stents of time where I can close my eyes for but a moment, simply to refresh. He’s the man on the far right and did he ever love to sing. I grew up hearing so many genres as he practiced. He could play the guitar, piano, organ, write music. All self taught. Opera being one of his favorites, boy did he try to hit those notes like Pavavotti! He equally loved singing with these men at church. Just some of my fondest moments of my daddy. I suppose he is the reason I know people can change. The reason I always carry such hope in this heart. He lived his life well and left a legacy to never be forgotten. #i_am_luv_u_madly #poeticjustice #instapoet #fiction #poems #author #poemsofinstagram #words #poeticsighs #poetess #wordswithqueens #womenwhowrite #poem #poemsofinstagram #poetrycommunity #poem #bestsellingauthor #poetryisnotdead #writer #writing #writersofinstagram #poemsofig #writersofig #poetscorner #wordporn #poetry #writerscorner #spilledink #poetryisnotdead #ig #writerscommunity #writersofinstgram #writer #globalpoetcult
