The Tragedy #poetry

Image
Disburse darkness
          When evil overrides
     3 poor, humble people
Their lives shredded
                     and torn.

No need to cry little one -
     The sun will still
          shine bright.

               I'm sorry for your sadness
          Emptiness,
     Sorry,
Damage
                    What else can I say?
Time
  Will
     Pass
                    Wounds
                            Will

Heal

Tragedy doesn't last FOREVER...

Independence Day #poetry

Image
The weight is heavy The burden unbearable The results uncertain
Fight to breathe Fight to live Fight to even die
How you want How you need How you see
See the pain See the envy See the future
We will survive We will thrive We will be free

Hole in the wall #poetry

Image
I walk into my rat-packed humble room.
     Oh, how I long to be elsewhere.
Wear walls
Grungy floors
Old paintings
     Every time I enter my room, I am intriguingly engulfed in it's horrendous boredom.
     I am a simple woman
Woes
Afflictions
Distractions
Problems
    They never seem to bother me.

I have two chairs here. Hopefully someone can share one with me someday.
I simply look out
     my eight panel window
          and dream how life could be -
               if and only if...

     I could get out this hole in the wall

What is love?

What is love? 

Love is an emotion, art, a state of mind, or even just a dream. 
Love is powerful.   Love is unconditional. Heart pounding. Earth shattering. Soul moving. 
Terrifying. 
Love is everything you thought you never needed but can't live without. 

It's the moment your chest compresses and heart shutters at the thought of them when they aren't by your side. 

It's the smile that crosses your face when you think of them.  It's the warmth and delight of a hug you waited for all day. 
It's soothing. Comfortable.
It doesn't judge. Ridicule. Oppress. 
It lifts. Inspires. 
And, it hurts.
It's the head-over-heels, can't live without them (ever), heart pounding, tear shedding, life changing, world spinning, turn your life upside-down and inside-out kind of feeling. 
Love is powerful.  Terrifying.  It's soothing. Comfortable.  And, it hurts.  Love is a feeling that can't be put into words.
