I don’t care where the butterflies go when it rains, I just want to know if its me you’re missing when you make palm prints on your windows, whether it’s my name you whisper against the window while you watch the droplets race each other. noah_arkenswagg

I follow Noah and some of his poetry is extraordinary. This is a great example of his work and, when I read it, it really touched me – I hope that you’ll like it too :O)

I’m a beautiful mess !! — The poem zone

I came across this amazing poem and had to share it with you – it resonated with me on many levels and I think it might do the same for many of you…….

I’ve lied, hurt, broke & tarnished the loveliest soul. Don’t be fooled, this actions have been practiced on me. I’ve given, saved, been there for these souls in the toughest times. Done the impossible, & sacrificed myself for the proper happiness. Simply I’m a beautiful mess that is meaningless…!! I burned down in tears & […]

Above It All — No Talent For Certainty

I just had to share this touchingly beautiful poem with you – I hope that you’ll love it as much as I do :O) x

She sat out on the roof and watched The city in its sadness; I used to see her every day, As we had each our habits — I loved her like the robins sing, With no real audience — But she was broken-hearted, then, And has been since. For though she kept her lookout true, […]

Facade — Emerging From The Dark Night

Quietly you hid your tears Behind a smile Learning long ago Not to express sadness Anymore For what good could honesty do In a world where Pain or grief is fearsome Or betrayed By all that everyone else hides Behind Or runs so very far away from In fear Long ago you learned Not to […]

On Writing (Yet Another) — The Stories In Between

Inspiration strikes like a match In an afternoon monsoon microburst Of clichés, tired and trite The obligatory opening and closing Threadbare and uninspired A triple-dose of banal, twice-told Allegories, tedious, tiresome So much effort for the stale and pedestrian How much time did you spend Polishing that dime-store bauble of yours You so pretentiously loft […]

In this wonderful poem River explores what it is like to write and to doubt; he really is a sublime poet and I hope that you’ll check out his work as I, for one, am absolutely in awe of it!

Rapid rhyme #10 — Peter’s pondering

Insecurity It makes no sense But, there again, it never did. ——..—— It made me tense and in my youth I often hid. ——..—— I know not whence these feelings came but now I’m rid! ————— Perhaps

via Rapid rhyme #10 — Peter’s pondering

I read Peter’s poem this morning and I said to him that I really can’t explain why I love it so much but it really touched something in me so I decided to share it with you guys

FALLING RAIN — A Poem

I read this just now and had to reblog it for the poignant beauty of the poem but also for the courage that it took to write. Lorraine is a great and versatile poet and I know that she’s going through a hard time at the moment so, if you like her work, please pop over and tell her so, I know it would mean a lot to her. x

And so now I am alone In the eerie silence of a life gone wrong Shall I unpack my case Such as it is? All that I have is my body Wracked with pain But it is mine No one can steal it from me Like you stole my soul I sit here in the […]

OPEN SOUL —

Wild place You minister To me, washing away The soil Of vain accusations Lashing My face Like the surgeon’s knife cutting out The diseased parts that sting From the harsh words Spoken The wind Blows gently now Soothing the raw places Opening up the way for tears Salty Healing I bathe in their pool, my […]
