POEM BELOW Walking on rocky road Barefooted, Closed heart Carrying my own demons The weight is so heavy Making my shoulders sore The more I walk The more I bleed For years, I turned my back To your peace To your apologies Unable to recognize the sun on my skin Time allowed me To fly away from my own pain Healing my open wounds Making the road more bearable Allowing the weight to fade Opening my heart to peace Running towards forgiveness Big thanks to 📷 @haleynuttall ✒ ©camilaalejandra #poetofinstagram #poetscommunity #poet #poetry #poetryofinstagram #poetrycommunity #communityofpoetry #poems #poemsofinstagram #poemscommunity   #writercommunity #wordpusher #theliteralscript #writerofinstagram #writer #bookofpoets #thoughtfvl #packpoetry #writersnetwork #camilaalejandra #forgiveness #pride #pain #peace #apologize #road #barefoot #demons
...And we’ll dance until our bodies are still and the only thing holding us up is the fear of ever letting go. . . . . . . . . . . . . . #poemoftheday #poetry #lovesongs #dancing #quotes #poetsofinstagram #loveis #madewords #her #loveislove #bleedingsoulpoetry #theliteralscript #quoteoftheday #like #follow #share #explorepage #thinkingofyou
It’s Thursday! So here’s a throwback. It’s fun to look back on where I started with this page. Sometimes I am pleasantly surprised and other times I cringe so hard it hurts. • • • #wordsandwonder —————————————————————————— #throwback #tbt #irony #poem #poetry #poet #poetsofinstagram #poetrylovers #poemsofinstagram #writer #writerscommunity #writersofinstagram #spilledink #typewriter #chemistrysfinest #theliteralscript #newschoolpoetry #globalagepoetry #globalagetyro #heartofpoets #pentupthoughts #silverleafpoetry #yourinnerwords #madewords
Did you prove your point to us? Did you prove your power? Did you choke us into silence after all those hours? Your metal bracelets hold down our hands but they will never hold down our minds. We are the voices that you will be made to hear for many years to come. We are the lamps that will shine light on all your shadows, illuminating every skeleton buried inside your closet. You tell us to say what we have to and then tell us you do not like how it was done as you prop yourself up on the pedestal of political tongues of lies. Just admit that beyond our forgivable flaws, it has less to do with how it sounds to your listening ear and that you would rather not even have to hear any of it in order to keep your guise of pretending and avoiding the need to admit that in justice, injustice gets harder to hide when even suckling babes can see it for what it is. Know this, though lady liberty's eyes are blinded from partiality, it is the business of politics that has sought to bind her hands. I had to call on lady liberty (even batman had a sign that instilled faith against crime) since in this country there seems to be no resounding symbol of our own. We will fix that for you. We will take the stand to make our minds an institution of enlightenment. We will continue to block your gates if that is what it will take to implement a gatekeeper of justice in this country. We will carry our own torch and hold you accountable for crossing the boundaries. For though these issues happen everywhere, we will take a stand against it here. This is our country. This is our duty. This is our right. This is our fight. We are the voices of tomorrow that will not be silenced today. You will have no choice but to hear us say in our own way, Vive la résistance! - Melanie M.- . . #poet #writer #voice #caribbean #trinidad #tobago #solidarity #strength #uwi #realissues #realvoices #realchange . . #poetry #poetrycommunity #poetsofig #poetsofinstagram #poetryforthesoul #writersofinstagram #writingcommunity #writers #writersofig #reader #authentic #spilledink #poetsofinstagram #passionofpoetry #abodeofpoets #writersnetwork #writerscommunity #theliteralscript #bleedingwords

stars. . you are one of them.
. If you were a skillful potterer And i were some modifiable clay You could mold me in any shape Or you could make me swirl and sway You could carve me repeatedly Or add some shades of grey Some embellishments in silver or gold Or some scintillating spray You could burn me in a kiln Or use me as an attractive display You could fix a price of me You could convince anyone to pay If i could'nt bring you any fortune You could break and let me decay But you are not a potterer And i am not anyone's clay I am an independent human being And i choose to live my own way . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #writingprompts #writersofig #instapoetry #poetryporn #poetrycommunityofinstagram #igdaily #poetry #instapoetry #omypoetry #madewords #thewordstreet #creativewriting #abodeofpoets #heartofpoets #poetrypoetryoftheworld #globalagepoetry #globalagepoetrylive #globalwordssmith #silverleafpoetry #bymepoetry #bymepoetryasia #artlixirpoetry #globalagetyro #Untwineme #bleedingsoulpoetry #packpoetry #deadpoetssociety #scribblersword #theliteralscript #avoicefromfaraway #herwordisgold PC: Pinterest
📷: @jasonsamaroott Raindrops fell on me today and left me soaked through in every which way. They hit my skin and made my clothes soggy. They wet my glasses and made the world foggy. I trundled on dripping wet. I was not ready for this to come to an end yet. I then felt the cold and the shivers came but I never once held the rain to blame. For even if I were to get sicker than ever and even if I would later run a fever as strong as the heart of the true believer, there's one thing that I could never hold in contempt or regret about the rain; it gives me something to feel besides numbness or pain. - Melanie M. - . . #poetry #poetrycommunity #poetsofig #poetsofinstagram #poetryforthesoul #writersofinstagram #writingcommunity #writers #writersofig #reader #authentic #spilledink #poetsofinstagram #passionofpoetry #abodeofpoets #writersnetwork #writerscommunity #theliteralscript #bleedingwords #cityofpoems #thepoetspost #writtenword #newworldwriting #melaniem #voicesofpoets #globalpoetcult #omypoetry #bymepoetry #micropoetryfeatures

Day 212• I can't think sometimes. I can't think. I can't. #whimsicalwafflewritings #365daywritingchallenge Inspired from a challenge by @madpropslive a really long time ago #madpropslive • Art by @aquasixio

“On Wednesdays we wear pink” @natwhite.au gave a movie magic line challenge #natzhollywood on @yourheartbeatsstrong. I chose the movie Mean Girls. • • I think of you and how my hair is 50 shades of grey. Yet there is still time I have, to give. Yesterday’s memories are a comedy of horrors And tomorrow only promises what dreams may come. Each week when I look at that one star, wars of emotion stare back and me. Can you see it too, is that where I belong? My broken heartbeat sounds louder than the echoes of native war drums. There will be blood spilled from each beat your hands don’t hold me together. The blood spilling on this uniform I have worn until now. But now, somedays, we dress the same; “On Wednesdays we wear pink.” • • #poetry #poetrycommunity #poems #wordsoftheday #poemsofinstagram #poetsofinstagram #poem #writersofinstagram #writer #writerscommunity #poet #poetryofinstagram #love #igpoetry #writingcommunity #poetryisnotdead #instapoet #heartbreak # #wepoetswrite #bymepoetryamerica #dtoslive #untwineme #yourhearbeatsstrong #newschoolpoetry #theliteralscript #veinheartartisans

3 SLIDES PLEASE SWIPE FOR POEM What an amazing opportunity to collaborate with Aria @sacred.wilde for the @twoheartsbeatstronger #acceptance challenge. ____________________________________________ Two souls hand in hand walking towards her home anticipation palpable as this is the day their love is known. Many years of fight with peers They drew closer together with every year Solace in a mutual respectfuk, loving embrace Shelter and strength, the cruel world to face Gay or straight love finds its place. Melanated under a hood walking past an unmarked car a wave and a smile from the driver goes a long way even when from afar No screams of hate No bullets fly No devastating mistaken fate No weapon in his hand to prove or deny Instead a smile and acceptance as he passed by. He hangs his head as crystals flutter to the ground love has been lost this day they hold him and embrace the ocean of tears he has found Boys don't cry they said Live caged without release As the drops caressed his cheeks He found freedom and his confinement ceased. Please understand acceptance in a moment is love poured out, but in the end is always your own choice however, when you decide to take a stand Be not an enemy but a friend use your actions and your voice you begin to shift the pattern With small acts of love and kindness Be the change, no matter who you are save it and us from the blindness Let us heal all its wounds, tears and age old scars. @iwrite2breathe @sacred.wilde ©iwrite2breathe ©sacred.wilde ____________________________________________ ARTWORK - @sacred.wilde ____________________________________________ #herheartpoetry #writersofinstagram #writersofinstagram #globalwordsmiths #theliteralscript #herheartpoetry #wordswithqueens #wordsmith #writerscommunity #ohmypoetry #globalvoicesunite #herheartlive #heartofpoets #heartofpoetslgbt #ourpoetryjourney #globalpoetcult #globalvoicesunite #globalwordsmiths #poetsworldunite #yourheartbeatsstrong #worldofpoets #tribeofpoets #fallspoetry #wildflowerwarriors #twoheartsbeatstronger #twoheartsbeatstrong
• THE WOLF • _________________________________ no light, it's hard to judge this starts with a sight of blood shining bright in partial moonlight, the rug now red, lying torn apart, water floods from the door before him, it's all fucked up gets the gun from the drawer, it's so fucking tough to open just to find a dead body dumped by some local psychopath in his bath tub or maybe it's the Wolf, awoken lately, who jumps on its victims and leaves behind their guts in front of someone else's doors and runs for safety, staying safely in the store or ducks for cover in the underground bunks every thought passing by his mind now tugs his very body to not go through with this, it's a rough terrain in front, to walk but then, he still opens it up. . . the mirror with crimson letters, perplexes him completely he figured it'll be better to forget this jumbled shit and leave when a dead body looks at him, resting, palely he looks behind at the trail of blood and breathes it's when he realises of what has been happening lately he walks towards the glass and at last, he sees, the missing part as the train of thoughts wrecks his being he loads the glock and stops it at his temple, aiming and at the count of three, he kills the wolf and where it resided safely. . . and it can be still seen at the scene the words written with blood that scream “LOOK AROUND. BLOOD. HANDS. PLEASE, KILL ME!”. _________________________________ by Anmol Sandhu _________________________________ × Follow @scribblesfromaquill  and our new page @driftingsfromaquill  to stay connected with us for more amazing work × ________________________________________________ #sfaqad  #scribblesfromaquill  #thewolf #poetry  #dark #poet  #poets #writer #wordporn  #wordgasm  #silverleafpoetry #thriller #poemsporn  #poetrycommunity #writersuniverse #bymepoetry  #writersofinstagram  #writing #artlixirpoetry  #poetsofinstagram  #bymepoetry #thegoodquote  #bymepoetryasia  #ttt  #untwineme  #omypoetry #theliteralscript  #thewordsmith  #anmolsandhu ______________________________________________
I can't draw guavas, but I really tried 😅 do you find motivation in nature too? . When I feel discouraged by life, I think of the guava tree in my parents' backyard. It had to be nurtured with great care And shielded from storms. It had to fight so hard every spring To renew itself from the chill of winter. It was years before it was sturdy enough To stand tall(ish) on its own. And still a few more before it bore fruit. How can I expect the dreams I've only just begun to work on To actualize, let alone bear fruit, so quickly? This, too, will see its share of winters. This, too, will take work, time, And plenty of nurturing care.
