#throwbackthursday for my #sapiosexual followers. 😘✌🏼♥️ // art credit: @dvrkshines

We all grieve and heal differently. Numbing the pain may feel good temporarily, but it will, inevitably make it harder, and could even kill you. Reach out, open up, ask for help. Learn who you can lean on and do it. Too many lives are lost due to suicide and drug addiction, daily. Watch for signs in loved ones. You may save their life. ❤️🙏🏻

I remember the first time
that I could see them.
Glaring through the mirrors.
Sneering at me with
disjointed loneliness.
I thought to myself
"This isn't real, it can't.."
Then the dreams started
and all hell broke lose.
I could see the other side,
fields of them mocking me.
Just like so..many scarecrows.
Then came the flames and
ash and..
I woke up,shivering.
Always remembering
seeing another me.
blowing away with
all those dark stars.

Embrace your darkness to overcome it. You are not your thoughts. Your ego, simply put, is the focal point of your existence. You have the power of choice to be consumed by your own madness. // this is my submission for the #doortooursoulschallenge hosted by the beautifully diverse community account @doortooursouls // 🎨by the incredibly talented @hagai_samuel

I crouched down, in the silence of her absence. Loves alchemy transmuted my cupped hands into a broom, as I swept the  dead rose petals she threw to the center of my room. It was then that I felt it. Liberation paying us a visit that night, though  I wonder if I was the only one who felt it. The fleeting air of dysfunction, taking its leave, allowing me to breathe, emptying my every pore within my broken skin. My heart rolled down my sleeve and where it fell, I beheld what I have always seen. An incomplete love. My judgement was accurate, yet not condemning. I had wished that the year spent was all pretending, so as to loosen loves single handed grip from around my neck. The other hand named respect, had already fled, but not before balling her fingers into a fist, which struck me a clean blow, though I never bled. Beautifully bruised, I placed my heart back in my chest, and meditated to the beat.
The song was nostalgic, yet I couldn't register the lyrics. The rhythm had caught me but the words were faint, like spirits whispering tales from the other side, to whomever has an ear spiritually inclined. The lyrics began to reveal themselves, shouldering a message of succession. The last verse stated: Should you love and retain who you are, you have become a planet awakened amongst it's illuminate star. I interrupted my reception internally to pose a definitive question: Who am I? Is that you? Have you become a skilled sailor, upon your relationships, traversing life's changing perils, surmounting waves of stress, and finding safe shores to rest? Are you growing? Have you grown? Like the bud who struggles to climb heights in the shade of the grove, overcast by the leaves of the brother and sister sunflowers sharing the same home? Perhaps I will always question myself whenever I see a shadow of doubt. Perhaps if I allow the light to pierce me, the shadow would cease and my thinking would reroute. I try, I try, to apply reason alone, thinking my emotions may keep me bound to an unfamiliar home. I distant spirit from mind so as to observe the thinker. -poem con't in the next comment.

I have been

four separate

One of which

Words left unsaid
Better off dead?
Can't always win
But you must begin
For if you don't try
Alone, you'll lie
Take a chance
Step up and dance
Hey little wallflower
Find your power
Plant your seed and grow
Or you may never know
Flourish and feed
Be better than a weed
Brush off your petals
Put on your tea kettles
Release this day, it's done
Tomorrow, new sun. ~kjl

Screaming Pen ~ (you should try a google image search on that..)
There are times that you want to articulate a
piece of yourself so badly, but you just can't
unhinge the proper words to do it justice.
Yet, try as we might anyway, we still continue to document and heal through our journeys.

This was my first time collaborating with
@missing_ashes / I was pretty damn impressed with how she was able to weave something that not only stood out on its own as an excellent piece, but when we blended them line for line.. it just worked really well.
/tips-hat.
It was fun working with you. I was glad that we were able to sync up our schedules to work together. Till next time 😊🙏🏻

A: My pen sits blankly on our table
M: i exist to keep you stable
A: It screams for me to speak aloud
M: When silence is an ominous cloud

A: I just cant dare to pen this fable
M: truth that bleeds when you are able
A: My shame is just too loud and proud
M: hemorrhaging black thoughts that shroud
:
A: What more is there for me to say?
M: utter thunderously with ink when notions fray
A: Why should this paper hear my pains?
M: plagues of listlessness keep us in chains
:
A: Days met and left are still just days
M: a syllable, a word, or poetic phrase
A: Glue holds my heart from our stains
M: liberate the soul from the sorrow that reins
