I haven’t posted any of my poetry on here in a while. Being vulnerable on the internet is hard. And scary. So I don’t do it as much as I’d want to.
But I love sharing my writing. And I constantly want to improve- feedback is one way to do that. So here’s a poem I wrote during National Poetry Month in April!
The clock struck midnight,
and Cinderella lost her shoe,
but in this fairy tale,
the prince never found it.
She waited months
for him to rescue her
from her horrible stepmother;
Only the wait was infinite.
One day she woke up
and realized that she didn’t need a Prince.
She only needed herself,
a little courage,
and a bit of will.
So she packed a bag,
walked out the door,
and never looked back.
She eventually found her prince.
The story didn’t happen the way she thought,
but she learned an important lesson instead:
sometimes you need to be your own savior;
your own guide out of the darkness
in order to finally get your happy ending.
Please let me know what you think of this poem :) If you liked it, if you think there’s something to change, etc. I want to hear it all!
I’ve been extremely into poetry recently, so I thought I’d share some more of it on here (even though I just did recently).
If you didn’t check out the last installment of this series, you can click here to do so.
I revealed that I started a poetry instagram account on that post, so if you want to follow it, you can do that here :)
Please let me know your thoughts in the comments! If you write poetry, please feel free to share it with me, too!
I made a poetry account!
If you’ve been following me for a while, you would know that I love to write poetry, and it’s something that I’ve been doing for a while. I’ve shared my work here in the past, and I will continue to do so from time to time, but I wanted to take it more seriously.
One of my life goals is to publish a book, and more specifically, I would love to publish a poetry collection. I want to work on my craft and actually share the pieces I’m proud of more often.
If you would like to follow it, click here! I will be posting multiple times a week, and it is something I really hope you guys will enjoy.
I tried to be pretty unique with my theme, and so far, I’m loving it! Let me know what you think :)
Here are the first two posts, if you want to get a bit of a sense of what it looks like!
I hope you guys enjoy these poems and consider following my new account. It would mean so much to me :) Have a beautiful day!
and everyday i took a different path,
it always led me back
my hands were stained
with white, fluffy clouds,
the fresh, green grass,
and all the memories of you.
you were the storm
in my clear sunny day.
you were the tsunami
in my salty ocean waves.
yet i let you in
because you were also the air
that i so desperately needed to breathe again.
When the sky turns dark, and I am all alone, I still reminisce the days I spent with you. These are the things I still think about.
The way your hands swept over every crater and bump on my face.
How my eyes lit up just by hearing your name.
How happy we were that we would be forever.
Your hand would grip mine with such confidence, and I never wanted you to let go.
You would kiss me goodnight, and tell me how beautiful I am.
The warmth of your breath on my neck was enough to give me goosebumps.
And how minutes apart were too difficult to bear.
How we talked about our plans and thought we had a future.
And my stomach did flips every time you looked at me.
Your touch energized me, all the way to my soul.
All the late conversations we had at night under the stars.
I will always remember the way you made me feel.
I was full of joy and laughter.
But most of all, I think about how forever quickly turned to never.
And goodnight kisses just turned to goodbye.
Oh, how we changed and grew up.
Never finding time for each other anymore.
The way I felt cold without you by my side,
and how I felt like a piece of me was missing without your arm in mine.
Minutes turned to days,
and neither of us thought of stopping by.
The messages stopped coming, and I stopped checking my phone.
My eyes were dull, and my heart felt so, so empty.
How naive and foolish we were to think that we had forever.
But there was nothing we could have done differently.
Because the universe had a plan, and we were not meant to be.
So when the sun comes up, I brush away the tears, and I forget about the nights I spent with you.
But forgetting is hard to do.
*This is all a work of fiction, I promise it has nothing to do with my life. It is just a little poem I wrote after reading a book, haha,*
i knew i would never forget you. not your smile, or how your eyes lit up when you were happy. and i would never forget how much you hurt me.
Lots of love,
I have been writing poetry since the 6th grade, when my English teacher introduced some of her favorite poets to the class. It is a great form of expression for me, and something that allows me to be creative. It is not great by any means, but I have been holding it in for so long that I decided it is time to share.
Here is my first collection of published poetry, a Collection of Heartbreak. This is one that I shared with Kinga from Kingajpg, who is a part of The Restless Times with me! Check out her blog for more poetry. The Restless Times is a newspaper whose message is to spread awareness on important topics, and give teens a voice. If you are interested in contributing, please check out the site and the Instagram page!
Anyways, here is my poetry! Please feel free to give me feedback in the comments. Always welcome and appreciated :)
