The Gift To Sing:
Sometimes the mist overhangs my path,
And blackening clouds about me cling;
But, oh, I have a magic way
To turn the gloom to cheerful day —
I softly sing.
And if the way grows darker still,
Shadowed by Sorrow's somber wing,
With glad defiance in my throat,
I pierce the darkness with a note,
And sing, and sing.
I brood not over the broken past,
Nor dread whatever time may bring;
No nights are dark, no days are long,
While in my heart there swells a song,
And I can sing.-James Weldon Johnson.

goodnight. have a good weekend

Why are you single? I have to cover my mouth when answering this question. It's the only way to contain the sea of words threatening to spill out. If I’ve learnt anything observing human curiosity it’s that people unknowingly want simple answers to simple questions; and my mind is a rainbow of stitched complexities and colourful contradictions that prove difficult to explain.// But I owe it to myself to try.// The world may mistake me as fastidious but I simply find no comfort in meaningless relationships. I prefer sitting in silence with a person to shallow interaction. Engaging in small talk feels like a million leeches latching onto my body, steadily draining me of my life force. But place me with someone I hold dear and they'll soften my tongue and I'll fight to contain the light seeping out my pores. // I haven’t always been this way. I am nothing more than the result of grief. When you lose precious years of your life to lovers who did not value you the self-reflection process rewires your insides. Pain arrests your soul, holding you ransom until you’ve learnt all it requires. I exhale clarity these days- I know, I know, I know.
I know who is worthy of my time now. I know. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I used to wonder why I was so crippled by endings, why I resisted goodbyes and clung to stale hope until I truly understood the nature of humans. We are eternal beings. We were never made for endings. Significant to the journey of mortality is finding a hand to hold throughout the eternities beyond this life. Just because people reach for a hand I’ve long surrendered to the wind doesn’t mean I’ve sworn off love. // I will give my whole self again one day but until time allows I’ve found peace in the absoluteness of solitude. It will take someone whose presence fills me with a love greater than my own to cause me to reach for a hand. A man whose intentions mirror my unspoken- I know, I know, I know. // I know who is worthy of my time now. I know. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Why am I single? Because I'm a girl whose pen holds an infinite stream of ardent desire and I do not intend on writing another love story that ends.

from #wordsyouwillneverread. don’t get used to these, though. i’ll probably only share a handful more. have to buy the book, if you want the rest. get it on 9.29 on amazon. 😏 #jessicakatoff


My poems are always heaviest when the seasons change, but this quote on Twitter from @neinquarterly made me smile: "...autumn is for the #poets. Fall, for the rest of us." Happy autumn to the #poetsofinstagram.

Por aquellas escaleras desapareció
Dicen que la vieron una vez más
Quizá en un espejo
Tal vez

Ella sí lo sabe
Las bajó lentamente
Tan silenciosa y cauta
Que pocos la vieron

Al llegar abajo, salió
Y, no se contuvo
Allí ya no
No fingió
Ya no, ya no más

Lo supo
Sólo algo cambió ese día
No mirar atrás
Y, abrir
Abrir la puerta
Y salir

Decir adiós al temor
Al dolor
A él
A su falso amor

Ahora, al recordar esos días
Recuerda sólo algo
Había luz, mucha luz

#insight #writers of Instagram #poets of Instagram #spiritual #religious #collective consciousness #poems of Instagram #I have always

considered myself
to be a spiritual person

albeit not necessarily
a religious one.
There may come
a moment of clarity
in one’s life where
all of one’s ideas, learning, and understandings coalesce to bring insight and depth of comprehension that heretofore was missing. An understanding that paradise exists here amongst and within us directed by a higher being or collective consciousness that enhances and directs our lives.

Everytime. Now who's with me? (Okay i've gotta admit i wrote this out of a whim. And that it simply is, and it is so. Watched a movie that I will not tell what it was, but gosh, the guy's so dreamy I could die of happiness 😍😍😍 Haha. Okay, moment over. Back to handsome beau of mine and a witty 2 year old to look after 😋) #love #fangirling #sweet #lovefeels#foramoment #escapade #romance #poetry #poets #poetsofinstagram #poems #writers #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #whim #random #eggsy
