/ Wild Turkey Morning / In a quiet house, while children slept and the sky anticipated snow, I watched the wild turkeys dance. Tails on full display, black bodies puffed to enormous size. They waited for a glance from the female who seemed not to notice their show, pecking at the ground while they pranced around. Slowly they made their way deeper into the wood, beyond my sight. I watched the fire, listened for footfalls, and waited for coffee. ... For Day 18 of #instapoem3030 by @amykaypoetry - a poem about a specific place. I wrote this about our cabin in the woods. . . . . #poetry #poem #instapoet #poetsofinstagram #poetsofig #poetrycommunity #poetryisnotdead #writer #writing #writersofinstagram #writingcommunity #poetryislife #spilledink #womenwhowrite #attemptingzen #naturepoem

*It's amazing to me, that no matter how young or old we are, we still look for approval, love and nurturing, and when it is 't there, we are left with a void. When I see a good father-daughter relashionship among people I envy that, because I happen to think it's the most endearing thing in life and sort of rare to come by. When one grows up without that kind of nurturing, it changes a person. It becomes yet another lesson life thrusts upon us.*⚘ Hugz & Kisses ~💋 #poetry #poem #poet #poetsofinstagram #writersofinstagram #poetsofig #writer #poetrycommunity #wordporn #prose #creativewriting #writerscommunity #instapoetry #writingcommunity #spokenword

I walked away, because we were no longer happy, we were dragging and that wasn’t good. We were destroying what we had, bit by bit, time after time. But a part of me stayed back when I walked away. . Amazing art by @muhammedsalah_

Day four of #BAWritingLife : Favorite writing quote. . . . This quote from Hemingway is great because it reminds me of how much of yourself really goes into writing (or art in general). Even if it's not autobiographical at all, we always leave a piece of ourselves in our work. . . . . . . . . #writingquotes #earnesthemmingway #artistsofinstagram #writersofinstagram #writenation #writearmor #novelist #novel #aspiringauthor #authorsofinstagram #creativewriting #creativity #writingcommunity #amwriting #fiction #writersofig #writerslife #selfpublishing #author #indiewriter #indieauthor #storyteller #womenwhowrite #writersnetwork #wordsmith #writerquotes

Final Winner of this week #spilledinkonskin2018 challenge is @randomthoughtsofjaxx 🚩🚩🚩🚩 • • • *caption* Scars and stars Worn with pride To remind me There's a reason I'm alive . Most of my life I've battled my own mental health issues and addictions, also that of my parents and siblings. I'm in no way proud of the scars I have inflicted upon myself. I have seen people so ashamed of similar scars, but when I look at mine, I smile because I feel no shame, only strength. There was a time when I was so lost in addiction, alcoholism consumed my life. I knew that I couldn't do it myself, and I knew that I had to end it before it ended me. While my lawyer brilliantly lied defending my innocence, I stood up in a court of law interrupting him. I'll never forget the red faced look of that man, who thought he was speaking the truth. The question was asked, "if tested today, would you test clean?" I said, "No , I'd test positive for alcohol and cocaine." I looked the judge in the eyes, and asked for help to save my life. When I was in treatment I gained my stars, they're matching tattoos from a bond formed between me and my 3 new sisters. I lost my father this same year to alcoholism, while I was in treatment. My star sister Karen in 2011. By this time I had already lost my brother from a car accident, while under the influence in April 2002. Unfortunately this list continues for far too long. So I am proud, or should I say, I am grateful, that I was able to overcome it all. Grateful, to be alive every day, even if I have to fight to make it that way. . #spilledinkonskin2018 #heartofpoets #penguinpoetrynyc #scars #mentalhealthawareness #poetrycommunity #writingcommunity #spilledink #poets #poetry #poetsofinstagram #poetsofinstagram #writersofinstagram #poetrylovers #poetrysociety #depression #mentalhealth #poetrygram

I'm sure you've had one of those days, when you've encountered one of those people who make you realise that there are horrible people in this world... but that is exactly why you need to keep the faith and believe, so that good can always get around the bad. It's like what Samwise tells Frodo - "There is some good in this world Mr Frodo, and it's worth fighting for." 🙏 My work and my signed copies of my latest book, Questions to our Answers ships worldwide via my Etsy page (link in profile). QTOA can also be found in major leading bookstores in Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines! #reader #creativewriting #igpoetry #typewriter #poetry #qotd #author #poet #love #quotestoliveby #poetsofinstagram #spilledink #quotes #writer #wordgasm #poemoftheday #poem #poetrycommunity #books #writing #poetsofig #typewriterpoetry #quote #writingcommunity #poemsporn #writersofinstagram #wordporn

I remember the day you said, 'it's all over now'. I would never forget how my heart shattered and my stomach somersaulted hearing those words. I admit that I kept trying to get you back even after all the struggles instead of fixing myself first. Because everything felt right before and I couldn't accept it when something that was so good for me decided to leave me abandoned on the road where nobody would ever want to visit again. Nothing feels right now and everything looks blurred. I see you sitting there with a girl in your favorite coffee shop. drinking lies and cooking up stories. I am staring at you and wondering what phrase you are going to tell when you leave her. 'It is not working out'. (It is never going to work out for you with anyone.) 'Let's just be friends'. (That is opening up her wound for you to hurt her again and again.) 'You deserve better.' (yes, she does.) 'I just don't love you anymore'. (Don't say that to her. She looks so fragile. She would break if she hears that.) 'we've grown apart'. (Maybe, but you need to grow up first.) 'I am just not ready for this kind of relationship'. (Boy, you're never ready for any relationships.) I expect you to say one of these because you are never that 'Staying long forever' type. And she looks so young. I wish I could just hug her tight and tell her that it isn't her fault. It's always yours. © Fathima Ashab

************************************************************ The demons I fight in my head, they all look like you seething with fury as my sanity lays endangered I’ve been wasting away sucked dry from your touch Skinned Gutted It must be time now for your coincidental exit But you will return soon enough after the distance restores me and my body becomes ripe again for your voracious taking I will be ready sledgehammer in my grip breaking the same concrete walls I once used to keep you out You and I, it goes like this: The way I know of love, it has always been an illness Only true, in front of empty bottles Only real, behind slamming doors And the way I was taught about letting go, it never means wanting to Elle Bor
