hope full glass -
we drink
to feel close to others
because
outstretched arms
can't meet
fingers
tips
without
loosened lips
.
we play the roles
to build the bridges
we play the games
to keep the cards
clutched
tight
to our beating chests
.
hiding
.
whatever vulnerable self
contained
into nothing, but
a faint echo
around the back of our skulls
reverberating
.
hope
.
someone who
ignites
that last sense of
being
to spark and fly
flame with flame
fire to explosion
burning down
brick
by
brick
the walls we built
up
to keep the cold world at bay
.
but it's oh so cold
and colder still
it gets
all too much.

Here's a little cup of inspiration to take with you wherever you go today... make a conscious effort to overcome evil with good in at least one way today. Then tomorrow, do it again. I'm claiming Romans 12:21 and asking the Lord to help me do this, and I hope you will, too! And as always, if you need prayer on this #PrayForMeMonday, be sure to let me know! 🌺🌿 #mondayinspiration #overcome #dogood

Don’t lose those smiles, ⠀
Don’t lose those memories that warm your bones on chilly nights,⠀
Don’t lose those laughs that fade into giggles that become smirks that blossom kisses,⠀
Don’t lose the humor of not owning any to start with,⠀
Don’t lose those eyes that hold admiration for the boys who don’t deserve it,⠀
Don’t lose that dance, or that prance, or the vigor of those feet,⠀
Don’t lose those friends that grow closer even when you construct walls,⠀
But lose yourself in a world that you have created so you can be what you’ve always wanted to be from the start: content. Pic: @savrear

Little hearts, swaying by, tiny smiles, flying past.

You are denying yourself
Of blessings
By holding onto lessons
You are supposed
To learn from - NmDiaries

May you rest in paradise, Mona 🙏🏽🍃🌸 This is my aunt, the person who challenged me to think, the one who inspired me to make an imprint on those who surrounds my life, to believe and hope. To pursue your dreams and never give up . #makeanimprint #writtenwords #mypoetry #poems #poetrycommunity

The funny this is that you reflect my emotions and me. I can see myself in you...perfectly happy! Eating the food I like, talking the way I want to and being a child. Why is it so easy for you? How did you find me? I can feel your aura around me, don't leave. Keep reflecting and keep spreading the light, making me strong, undoing the wrong. Fireworks in my heart, beauty that lurks in your art, let's fight the greys and find ourselves in the maze. #experimentingwithiphone #clouds #writtenwords #spilledink #detailedsky

I was eating at a restaurant. I saw an unfinished plate of grilled fish on the table behind me, left over and left behind. I don't know why but i thought to myself "that fish is just like me"

Many times we create a picture in our minds of how things should be. Many times that picture was never painted with the correct tools and we are left with paint dripping off the wrong brush and a canvas we can no longer use... #beaversandboneyards. #love #beaversandboneyards #writersofinstagram #writing #writtenwords #write #spokenart #spokenwordpoetry #spokenword #poems #poemstagram #poetsofinstagram #poem #haiku #wordsofwisdom #lesbianpoetry #lesbianart #california #norcal #poetry #wordartist #wordart #love #loveyourself

Word prompt for the day: BEHIND THE GLASS. #mayfalls @fallspoetry ______________________________Behind the Glass

She's hidden behind this fragile
Frosted glass of a shield
Its temporary
When it breaks
The casualties will go beyond her space.

Each time someone calls her:
Terrorist
Towel head
The devil
Ugly names objectifying her
A murderer
Brown
Filthy immigrant
For each name she comes up with a statement
Terrorist: DON'T group me with fanatics..
Towel head: Its called a hijab and its beautiful thing
The devil: We are all sinner because we are mortals
Ugly names objectifying her: I am more than beauty, not my fault you are intimidated by my intelligence
Murderer: I haven't killed anyone
Brown: I am actually butterscotch caramel
Filthy immigrant: Aren't we all nomads of some kind?
The glass will chip and break at her feet.
What she doesn't know that its only glass.
She's much stronger than she gives herself credit for. (C) NP• copied the poem here in case you can't read it• Thoughts on individuals being called names and being bullied. Understanding each other and love are important. Being bullied is not right and no one should be subjected to it and we can not by bystanders as individuals.

There's this certain type of relationship that you don't commit to. You don't establish rules. A type of relationship when you just let things happen and never ever dare to do anything about it. One that was there since who knows when. One that stands through the test of time. One that stands all the crap life has thrown your ways. One that stands all the crap you threw at each other. One that has seen the best and the worst of both of you. One that simply stays silent, never revealing itself as an actual relationship. One where you don't say that you love each other, probably never will. You'd probably part ways one day and live different lives and have different partners. But deep inside that heart of yours, you know you've loved another person deeply, indescribably loved another person deeply. No tags or labels. You just loved. And will continue to do so. It's the relationships that's above something filial but never really grows to something romantic. It's vague but it is what it is. It brings a smile to your face, a joy in your heart, a peace in your soul. It's love. A kind of love that you can never put into a certain archetype. You will never know what it is. You will never make a move to nourish it. You will wonder if you chose not to or if you were just deprived of the opportunity to do so. You will realize that the feelings you had always had one foot in the pit and always fell back down unexpectedly. Maybe you have never been fair, maybe you never gave your best. Maybe it was meant-to-be but you didn't do your part. A something you think that's nothing but could actually be anything but would never be your everything.
