    Poetic musings even if i do say so myself. They may not be.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    Some were made,
    forged with fire,
    some were born
    out of fire but it burnt them not,
    and some exist
    in purity of ice.
    I know not which you are, only that you have touched my soul
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    You stand before them loud and proud
    Not hiding, shouting your soul out.
    But they all have their headphones in
    And so they can't hear you sing.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    Your voice is rich and speaks to me
    Understanding and setting me free
    Your voice was not made to softly sing,
    You voice was made to be loud
    So that more can hear the happiness it brings.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    I have others--but this is what I wrote a few days ago so is to hand. Has a bit of a theme. O well thought I would share, you don't have to care.
    (o'no rhyming in sentences- so bad but not going to change it )

    Life munches on my bones, and splits apart my joints, it pulls on my muscles, and forks out my marrow. It chews on my brain, as it swallows all my blood, and bites out my heart while tearing at my stomach. It is so hungry and takes all of me, everlasting in its greed, to Consume and drink and eat, more than it shall ever need. Draining my body down into the dust, and I march on, as I must.

    Judging people
    Judging eyes
    Judging secrets
    Judging lies
    But no matter if your eyes are black or blue
    Or the colour of your skin any hue
    No matter their attempts to overwhelm
    We should and shall be judged for ourselves.

    I pressed a daisy when I was sad

    And now that sadness it seems to hold

    A promise of hope, and misery untold

    Held in fingers so delicately

    Because it could break between these bones

    Far from the place it had once grown.

    You packed a big punch in a few short lines, especially the last couplet. Keep writing.

    Thank you :)  and I will, although it's alway random stuff. Like this one :) 


    I find the empty waiting to be filled
    Glass fracturing light with nothing within
    All the colours of the rainbow
    And I begin.

    Pour the cold from my soul
    Into the vessel empty below
    And quicker and more until it overflows
    And breaks and goes
    where
    I don't know.


    (I'm a cheerful soul I swear)

    Okay so not particularly happy this evening, o well poetry helps it be somewhere other than in my head.
    Probably should have TRIGGER WARNING. i don't know though. Maybe not.


    Trying to find and follow in the night
    The twinkling fireflies lights
    that dip and weave and deceive
    leading me deeper in and never out. Scared that I'll fall and have to crawl
    over roots that twist and turn
    as quick as thoughts that spiral,
    in the dark alone the lights last denial
    Sliding down, down and trying,
    to stop myself from crying.

    Restless Forest

    All of these are so lovely!!!!!!! I as write poetry as well but not nearly as powerful as yours - beautiful! That is some SERIOUS talent right there. I recently discovered that I could combine my music and poetry skills to write songs. I've only written two complete songs and two unfinished ones, but it's really fun! Keep up the great work!!!!!!!!! ✌️

    I see those fingers dancing round,
    Twisting within each others grip
    Through the hand of another's tips
    Pinching pulling tearing strands
    Jumping with every careless hand
    Letting memories loose
    And mirroring my mind confused
    As all that was whole falls apart
    Under my hands catching the tears
    when they start.

    Don't think about it

    Some things grow heavy.
    With time and age.
    They settle and weigh upon the edges of your frown.
    So that even when you smile,
    up seems down.
    It doesn't stop the happy,
    or makes pleasure any less,
    it just seems to take,
    that extra little more,
    until one day you realise,
    your soul can no longer soar,
    at simple things that once set it free.
    Or at least that is what happened to me.

    What happened to you?

    -------------------------------------------------
    Not that I ever explained but if I do have a title for my work they are written at the end of it not the start. So if underlined at bottom that is the what the poem is called.

    Love that one! I relate to it so much. So powerful. I haven't written any poems since I've been back to school these past two weeks because I'm so busy but I guess I'm okay with that. I'm doing a really in depth project on the Stonewall Riots of 1969 and have been spending a lot of time on it.

    Hesitation on moments so small,
    On a word or conversation or call
    spoken my brain so full of regret,
    Afraid that of myself I make a fool,
    Triping across words so simple,
    Thinking I should stay silent instead,
    Because eloquence exists only inside my head.
    And I will never speak the words with my thoughts locked in there,
    So at the world I continue to stare,
    Because for all the smarts I'm said to have,
    Communication is the skill I lack.


    Speak your mind, control your mouth.

    Can we sit on the swing
    that this world seems to bring
    rocking back and thorth until we find,
    all that ever used to be mine.

    When I say you’re my life, I hope you know that it’s true,
    When I tell you you’re my world, know that I only have eyes for you.
    When the words cannot come because you take my breath away,
    Know that I love you more than words could ever say.
