We made it!!! Let's bliss...

Diaphanous Moments


orcas kiss, swimming in spirals,
slow as can be.

eagles hold eachothers wing
and sink into eachothers eye.

heart dances, flying falling,
swimming, touching everywhere.

jaguars nap together,
listening to water. Stillness.

Re: Freewrites

Begging you, begging you.
We are in every way.
Silence, and extra love.

Out the clouds and
Still in the clouds.

Re: Therapy Poetry

you are my true sister, unconditionally. Am so thankful for you and our laughs, all the support felt when one of us merely walks into the same room or thinks of eachother. As you go forward in life with your husband and have children, know you have a brother, a true brother who loves you and support...

A Moment to Feel the Love


We remember what the moon sees,
And the way we move water.

We remember the way we cry, together.

We are liberated by the poetry we embrace,
The Unwritten poetry that transforms us,
Into grace. The poetry - we - will always be.

Re: Titles: Game Prompt

Mismatched Socks I grabbed her socks and tickled her before she could put them on. She couldn't believe it, said I was so weird, because I wanted to wear one of her socks. They were black backgrounded with rainforests and moon. How could I resist, wanted to be closer to her, and do it with style. Sh...

Re: Freewrites

It's true, she's black and she's the most beautiful woman I've ever seen. It's still 1837 hea In Louisiana, the best and worst year of my life. I fell in love with her the first moment I saw her, deeper and deeper each moment with her. We grew up together, a little boy and girl inseparable. Both bor...

Re: Therapy Poetry

Listening to the intuition can hurt relentlessly. Perhaps I saved myself from greater hurt an suffering, But my delivery was all wrong, and the beautiful Home I built with comfort love and beauty was Crumbled irrepairably. It hurts so bad, and I'm torn About whether it feels right, but deep down the...

Re: Therapy Poetry

It's wild when I stop blaming others and take a look at myself. We were made to be exactly how we are and everything made us. We are all hypocrites and all saying the wrong things until we decide to believe we're saying the right things. It's funny this life, it's tragic that all this time I didn't ...

Re: Therapy Poetry

I want to excommunicate everyone including myself. My life is spiraling imperfect mistakes, doing what it was programmed to do in this time, place; to let people go. It hurts, what I've lost, but all I can hear is let it go. We are all so selfish, and still i act shocked. We are all united, and stil...

Therapy Poetry

This is a place to write anything, just to get it off your chest, pure poetry therapy. No wrrries about what it will be worth later or if it represents you. Everyday, thousands of thoughts go through our head or less, and this stream, this anything is all us. O, and how pure how poetry it all is. Le...

Re: Titles: Game Prompt

Juxtapose Roses On a leaf, dew gathers gently, gently merging with lakes within lakes as ripples expand into mountain clouds. Flowers open and sing songs that only love can listen to. All the way. We feel our the eyes of our beloved, in that moment, if only imagined, yet so much more. A moment, wher...

Re: Titles: Game Prompt

This Breath


Pores on her body expand with warmth
as eyes dilate and soothe into subtler colors.

Our lips and heart receive music,
as soft as water dances with air
as it evaporates and rises to a cloud.
