"I can't trust this world to teach their sons how to treat my daughter. And so I will raise her to be a sword, a spear, a shield... My daughter will be carved from hard rock, sharpened shrapnel a spear - her whole body ready to fling itself and arrow the hand of the first man who tries to cover her mouth." - Elizabeth Acevedo

Sunsets or sunrises?

: Hingga engkau mengerti bahwa dadaku adalah penuh milikmu. Namun bukan sebagai satu tempat yang engkau bisa kapan saja, datang menjelma sebagai timpa semaumu. Sebagai guruh atau gempa. Mengetuk penuh airmata, atau gelegari aku dengan sambar-sambar kata yang memaknakan lara dan kekecewaan. Sungguh, aku lebih menghargaimu sebagai jiwa yang mampu merasakan, bukan kekuatan yang memaksakan pasak belenggu dengan rantai pasung dan tancap paku. Sebab aku mencintaimu bukan untuk mentertawakanmu di balik punggungku. Kumohon jangan sesekali mendesakku untuk satu giring yang kian menuju curam. Tampan.

Hidupku adalah segala ketenangan. Untukmu. Maka jangan sampai dengan mencintaiku kamu menjadi lemah. Hingga hari ini semenjak aku tahu rasanya tersenyum kembali setelah mengenalmu. Aku tidak hadir sebagai badai yang membuat utuhnya dadamu menjadi poranda. Tersebab kamu aku menggetarkan cakrawala dengan doa, agar jika sore ini hujan datang, kamu akan merasa bahwa puisiku adalah kecupan bagi keningmu. Hanya pada curamnya rongga dadaku, kamu akan merasa aman berada di sana. Sekalipun kamu Bidadari, sayapmu bahkan mematahkan dirinya sendiri. Kamu memilih tinggal menjadi yang satu-satunya di dalam aku. Dan tenang.

A triumvirate of ground-breaking works by Joan #Miró, Wassily #Kandinsky and Alberto #Giacometti – showing the titans of 20th century art at their best – will star in our June sales of #Impressionist & Modern Art in #London. Kandinsky’s Bild mit weissen Linien was produced in 1913 in the window of time and tension that led up to the outbreak of war – an explosive moment of innovation and revolutionary art that brought about Abstraction and set the scene for everything to come. Miro was producing his Constellation works in the approach to and through the darkest moments of WWII, but was finding a way through it rather than creating an expression of it. Rather than capturing the angst, his resulting work is a legacy of beauty and #poetry. Processing and reflecting the aftermath of the war Giacometti presented its existential angst, and in 1947 entered the #golden period of his career in doing so. This luminous figure of a woman stands tall as an extremely rare example of a unique cast. On view in our galleries next month, ahead of the auction on 21 June. #SothebysImpMod #JoanMiro #WassilyKandinsky #AlbertoGiacometti

Thank you for reading my poetry and quotes. I try to post new poems and words about love, life, friendship, family, feelings and of course me every day. The backgrounds to my text contain shells, seed pods, flowers, feathers, insects, butterflies and anything else I can find in nature. I love to write in nature and collect anything created from earth. You can always find me writing at the beach, next to the river or under a tree. .
Please tag me in reposts, they are always welcomed. ❤️

Look with your heart 🌹 Words by @_jessica.michelle_ 👑

Look
If you had
One shot
Or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted
In one moment
Would you capture it
Or just let it slip?

PSA don't go and have kids just to teach them some kinds of love are wrong; that they could hate someone because of their religion; that they could treat a person differently based on their skin colour... please just don't

Vuoden 1956 kotimaisena kirjana esittelyssä on Eeva-Liisa Mannerin (5.12.1921 – 7.7.1995) läpimurtoteos Tämä matka (Tammi), suomenkielisen modernistisen runouden klassikko. Tekijänsä kolmas runoteos avasi kotimaisen lyriikan tietä eteenpäin vapaamittaisilla, vahvan kuvallisilla, aiheiltaan rönsyilevillä ja mielikuviltaan moneen suuntaan kurottuvilla runoillaan. Läpi kokoelman kattavina aineksina ovat luonto, musiikki ja filosofia, yksittäisten runojen teemoissa näkyvät erityisesti menetys ja löytäminen, unohdus ja muistaminen, kärsimys ja ilo. Teoksen ensipainoksen runot sisältyvät sellaisenaan myös Mannerin koottujen runojen laitokseen Kirkas, hämärä, kirkas (toim. Tuula Hökkä). "Saapua viimein / kevyenä, väsyneenä, / ilman sanoja, telttaa ja eläinten myötätuntoa / meren rannalle, nähdä ruumiillaan tämä kaikki: / Hyytyvä valo ja pitkät ankarat aallot, / kova avaruus, joka kiertää, vingahtaa, / ja vitkaan jäätyvät tuulet; // lähettää tottumuksesta / tyhjä vene, huuto tuuleen // tietäen että vain sirpaleet pääsevät perille, / tai ei mitään." #kirja #kirjallisuus #kirjat #kirjasampo #päiväntäky #eevaliisamanner #tämämatka #kirkashämäräkirkas #book #bookstagram #instabook #finnishliterature #poetry #runo #kirjasto #library #suomi100

Some questions don't have clear cut answers. Strange truths write themselves in our bones all the time. We don't know exactly how it happens, but we can feel it.

you need to learn how to keep your ego aside and accept that you're a liar. you lied when you told someone who much you loved and appreciated them, you lied when you said that you'd always be there for them and you lied when you said that you would never hurt them. // we are all liars.

From my book OF YESTERYEAR 📖 Available from Amazon, Book Depository and Barnes&Noble.com. Also available for Kindle. Lauren X #laureneden #ofyesteryear

What I do won't save the world
Won't even woo a girl
And it becomes a burden
When the hearts a volcano
But the minds an iceberg
So give me stillness for once
The mundane, warm silence
Hide me away from their gaze
Give me another's face
And forget this space

🌙간격 -  이정하 [원문]

별과 별 사이는
얼마나 먼 것이랴.
그대와 나 사이,
붙잡을 수 없는 그 거리는
또 얼마나 아득한 것이랴.
바라볼 수는 있지만
가까이 갈 수는 없다.
그 간격 속에
빠져죽고 싶다.

네, 오늘은 ‘너는 물처럼 내게 밀려오라’라는 구절로 유명한 이정하 시인의 <간격>인데요. 이정하 시인의 여러 작품을 읽고있으면, 정신없이 보낸 월요일도 말랑말랑해지죠. 힘나는 한주의 시작, 오늘도 안녕히주무세요.

old habits

_

tonight
I won't trust anyone.
several examples of disfigured smoke
will pass through my fingers
which reflects the changes in me;
uncertainties,
defeats,
dishonest promises.
_
luckily, you're here.
my thoughts are stories made of poetry
and you answer them as you know 'em all,
as you know me
and you're finding me whenever
I get lost in them.
only you amongst everyone
and no one else.
_
I've decided:
tonight I'll trust only you.
_
we remain cocooned,
telepathically linked through our feet
while I'm killing myself with cigarettes,
because I have no will,
because I don't know any better
in thinking.
_
even the flashing light from across the room
that gathers lost punks-
young and
old
and burns them like moths and flies-
is sheepishly leaving questions, like
shadows on our faces:
what are we doing here?
this is not our kind of place.
let's wander away -
away
where understanding has its meaning,
out of this vicious circle.
let's disappear
before somebody sees us.
_
let's disappear
before they stop us
from trying -
from reaching our kind of a rehab
for old habits like ours -
for old souls
like us.
_
