Плыли по одной акватории, Но прибыли по разные стороны гавани. Нет печальней истории, Когда мачты, штурвалы и топки сломаны... Ты умчался за весельем, свободой, Я осталась одна стоять у шаткой пристани... Ждать. Даже штормовой непогодой. Кто были этого романа сценаристами? Как корабли расходятся в море, Как соль растворяются люди, Больно конечно, но вскоре Воздуха набираешь полные груди И гребешь по течению своей жизни, Строишь новый крейсер "Вперёд", Но не забудешь ты и до тризны Тот прекрасный души полёт... Называют это "Любовью", Приходит красиво, уходит - внезапно, И даже не шевельнул, уходя, бровью, Не говоря о сердце... Похабно... Вот и не доплыли до "Острова грёз", Видно одна я мечтала... Сколько же пролитых было слёз... Сама бы океаном стала... А время до сей поры намертво Стояло и не шло никуда, Как истукан вдруг замерло - Не то пятница, не то среда... Но зла не держу, так ведь бывает - Мы ищем именно то - своё! И кораблик по-английски уплывает, Ищущий по нраву житьё-бытьё... Мои заветные мечты сбылись. ... Но вот как-то совсем не у меня. (Никогда ковром не стелись, Иначе затопчут, не объясня) Но я рада, что свой "Остров счастья" Твой корабль быстро нашёл! Беречь пожелаю свое от ненастья И айсберги чтоб обошёл! . . #writer #poetryslam #prosepoetry #darkpoetry #dailypoetry #poetryselfie #poetrybook #poetrysociety #lovepoetry #poetryislife #poetryporn #poetryisnotdead #slampoetry #writing #micropoetry #instapoetry #poetrygram #urdupoetry #streetpoetry #poet #poetry #poetryinmotion #poetryloving #visualpoetry #spokenwordpoetry #poetryofinstagram #instagrampoetry #poetrylovers #typewriterpoetry #newgrodno
Lying in my bed. I glanced through the naked window. She stood there in the distance, so gracefully, even though it's January, she looked warm and loving. But she seemed lonely. Just like me. Then the thought about you crossed my mind. Your name I think about with so much love, but when I say out loud I fear of the sound of it. Some nights I can't keep but wonder... Does the thought of me ever cross your mind? When it's 1p. m. and you cannot sleep? Or do you lay down on your bed so peacefully that you can't be bothered to even remember? . . . . . . @prilaga #shortpoetry #instagrampoetry #poetrysociety #prilaga #poetrybook #poetryporn #poetryinmotion #dailypoetry #poetrycommunity #typewriterpoetry #urdusadpoetry #prosepoetry #poetry #poetrygram #micropoetry #slampoetry #poetryislife #urdupoetry #instapoetry #poetryisnotdead #poetryslam #poetryloving #streetpoetry #lovepoetry #spokenwordpoetry #poetryofinstagram #poetrylovers #darkpoetry #poetryselfie

I'm sorry, but I don't know how to cry pretty. Some days maybe, like when tears stroll gently down my freckled cheeks or when they get tangled with bursts of laughter, or like those times when my tears whisper in the wind "I'll be okay". But on nights like tonight, I don't cry pretty. There's a rage built like a bonfire and each log of anger is fuel to a crazed mind. So no, I don't cry pretty with arched backs and howls that only the moon doesn't mind to hear and it's not pretty either when my screams are the only thing escaping my body tightly tucked in the fetal position. On nights like tonight, it doesn't look pretty when my body shakes in frustration and angry spasms extract every yell my tiny body could muster. Will you still be here, when I don't know how to cry pretty?

I’m sorry that I’m ugly to you! All of my life I’ve struggled with making friends, getting jobs, and many other things and opportunities all because everyone always judges me by my looks instead of my character or my heart! I get called ugly more than I’ve ever been racially profiled against! It’s a hard pill to swallow everyday! Honestly, I can’t even lie it’s broke me all the way down! Honestly it’s made me not even want to live anymore! I struggle enough being black, broken, broke, beaten, depression, and I don’t know how to love myself! @oshunthepoet 💔💔💔
Making us Worry is 1 of the devil's tactics to steal, kill and destroy the human soul. Stress, depression and many other forms of worldly ailments stem from a lack of GOD! And GOD is bigger than your problems! They say let go and let GOD 4 a reason!

love is a sneaky disease ... She lives without warning and does her work without asking us anything! 💕 💨 l'éloignement est aux passions, ce que le vent est à la Flamme! Il éteint les petites et ranime les grandes 💫 l'amour est une maladie sournoise... Elle nous habite sans prévenir et fait son œuvre sans rien nous demander! 💕 😚 #instapoetry #visualpoetry #urdupoetry #prilaga #poetry #typewriterpoetry #poetryinmotion #lovepoetry #poetrylovers #writer #poetrygram #prosepoetry #writing #spokenwordpoetry #poet #dailypoetry #poetryslam #poetryislife #streetpoetry #poetryloving #poetrybook #poetryisnotdead #poetrysociety #darkpoetry #poetryselfie #micropoetry #instagrampoetry #poetryporn #poetryofinstagram #slampoetry

Excuse me while I have my breakdown. I didn’t realise I was being so selfish and self absorbed. . . I had a session today with a medical professional who I had to sit and tell them my whole life story. Literally from A to Z of everything that has ever happened to me, which has all lead up to this point. It ended with her telling me that they would not be able to help me as the support that I need to get my head better, is not available on the NHS within my borough. That I would have to pay for a long term series of support with money that I do not have available for this. I had to sit there, while getting distressed, to walk away with nothing. She told me that in other boroughs closer to London, it is available for people who need it. . . Guess there’s lots of opportunities for the rich and even less for the poor. . This is what you get for being brave and asking for help. . . I can’t help but think about all the other people who need help and, like myself, then cannot get the support they need. . . The system is bollocks. . . I’m throwing myself into my painting to enable my mind to survive. . . I need to protect myself. . . Because no one else is going to do it. . . It’s just gonna be a really hard road. . . Hopefully there will be more up’s coming soon. . . Thank you to those who are supporting me. You have no idea how thankful I am to have you in my life either physically or via social media. . . . Thank you for being here. 🖤 . Music to go with this in my story. . #spilledink #poetrylovers #support #spokenwordpoetry #poetry #poetrycommunity #poet #poetsofinstagram #poeticjustice #artist #micropoetry #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #writersofig #spokenword #quotes #quotesdaily #quotesaboutlife #quoteoftheday #authorsofinstagram #lyrics #spiritual #spiritualawakening #creativewriting #instagood #depression #blogger #mentalhealth #quotesdaily #instaquotes #poetryisnotdead

When you are on the wrong path and you are not in the mind to change, sometimes life makes this choice for you. Life forces change and you grow. Sometimes you just have to go with the flow and see where it takes you. . . Change is a good thing. It means you haven’t yet landed at your destination in life and you need to keep moving to get there. . . Your story is writing a new chapter. . . Think positively. . . When I post my poems to my story, I pick lyrics to go with them so make sure your sound is on. . . Keep creative peeps ✌🏻 . . . . . . #spilledink #poetrylovers #poetryislove #spokenwordpoetry #poetry #poetrycommunity #poet #poetsofinstagram #poeticjustice #artist #micropoetry #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #writersofig #spokenword #quotes #quotesdaily #quotesaboutlife #quoteoftheday #authorsofinstagram #lyrics #spiritual #spiritualawakening #creativewriting #instagood #quotestoliveby #quotestagram #quotesandsayings #quotesdaily #instaquotes #poetryisnotdead
I thought I might start adding a few more photos of me and the people I have around me. It’s not something i do really because I feel like I’m being a bit self absorbed, plus I struggle looking at myself. I criticise myself so much and don’t feel that I’m much to look at. That could be because how I’ve been treated in the past, that it’s knocked my self worth in my eyes but definitely my confidence. . I just thought that maybe it’s time I start to include the world a little bit more in my life and not just my writing or art. Fuck knows!! Still feels odd posting pics of myself. . Somehow this seems like a better photo of me but I can tell you there are many words going through my head that are not nice words when I look at myself even in this photo. It was for my works Christmas party. . Who knows! Maybe it might give me a bit more confidence about myself..here’s hoping. . It’s sad really that people don’t consider how their own actions can make such an impact on someone’s whole life! Not just a month, or a year after talking with someone but their entire life. . I’m not an angel, far from it but I’d never hurt another person. . So I’m out of my comfort zone here guys. . Be nice! . And keep being awesomely creative ✌🏻 . . . . #spilledink #strongwomen #instagood #spokenwordpoetry #poetry #poetrycommunity #poet #poetsofinstagram #truestory #artist #micropoetry #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #writersofig #spokenword #quotes #photooftheday #blogger #deepthoughts #authorsofinstagram #lyrics #spiritual #spiritualawakening #creativewriting #instagood #quotestoliveby #quotestagram #bloggersofinstagram #quotesdaily #instaquotes #poetryisnotdead
A message of truth. . How can I be if I cannot be with you? Surely it is more cruel to watch someone you love, live without you then if they did not meet death? Watching them from the other side of a room then to sit next to them in their sweet presence? . . .. Death seems more romantic then to remain in a cold solitude of your choice. A choice not made by heart but by a misled, clouded judgment with no grounds or truth. I lie to myself with dreams of uprooting and creating a life and world around me without reminding myself that it would not be an escape...as I cannot escape myself. . . My heart which is carried within this worthless vessel will not hush and with every beat scars my being, body and mind. I am but a walking ghost. I have already passed. I am but a memory of a hope that once was loved. A dream of such beauty that even Shakespeare’s sonnets would only but scratch at the surface. . For be it not in this lifetime that fate will bless us with this such happiness, then I welcome the next. For I would gladly take a dagger and selfishly end my own torture then to carry this burden upon these tired, weaken, shoulders for an eternity. . . So forthwith, when your eyes gaze upon this memory of love....just know and take comfort that this heart beats, not for the one that holds it, but for the one that it cannot hold. . . . . . . . . #spilledink #poetrylovers #poetryislove #spokenwordpoetry #poetry #poetrycommunity #poet #poetsofinstagram #romance #artist #lovestory #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #writersofig #spokenword #story #quotesdaily #quotesaboutlife #heartbreak #authorsofinstagram #lyrics #spiritual #spiritualawakening #creativewriting #instagood #quotestoliveby #quotestagram #quotesandsayings #quotesdaily #instaquotes #poetryisnotdead
