Poetry

As I walk in the door
your tail thumps
A mile a minute
As you run to greet me
licking me as you waggle that tail frantically
Letting me know
How much you missed me
Its so nice
Such adoration and love
It warms my heart
Lifts any sad feelings
For that few minutes
As I walk through that door
And you shower me with affection
My depression is completely gone
Oh how I love you Nitro
You are a dog in a million
Thank you, thank you for your loyal companionship and love
Love you, buddy

Flooded with a memory

Frozen in place
No smile on my face
Flashing back in time
To a memory
31 years ago
But time goes so slow
Cant think or breathe
Don’t want to be me
Don’t want it to be real
I just cant feel
Feels too raw
Too painful
In a vulnerable space
Trying to remember
The sootheing tone
Of my therapists voice
As she gently guides me
To safety

SNOW WHITE, A POEM, WITH BEE’S POETRY PROMPT!

HERE I AM UP AT 1 AM NOT ABLE TO SLEEP. SO I THOUGHT I’D WRITE. I THOUGHT I’D PARTICIPATE IN BEE’S BLOG PORMPT WHICH SHE POSTED A FEW DAYS AGO NOW. SO BELOW FIND MY POEM, MY SCRIBBLES, WITH THE PROMPT WORDS, SNOW WHITE!

IN A SNOW WHITE DRESS
SHE STANDS
BAREFOOT AND FEAR GRIPPING HER
TWISTING AND TURNING INSIDE OF HER
THE FEAR MULTIPLIES AS THE MEN ENTER
THEY WALK TOWARDS HER
PULL OFF HER SNOW WHITE DRESS
START TO TOUCH HER
IN WAYS SHE HATES
HURTING HER…
ABUSING HER…
CAUSING MORE FEAR TO GRIP HER HEART
HER DRESS LIES ON THE FLOOR
TORN AND TATTERED
BROKEN AND BRUISED
SHE TRIES TO FREE HERSELF
BUT ALAS SHE CANT
SO INSTEAD…
SHE DISSOCIATES
FLIES AWAY UP UP AND AWAY
ABOVE HER BODY SHE HOVERS
AND WAITS
WAITS FOR THIS TO JUST BE OVER

WILLOW

Stormy! A poetry prompt!

A STORM IS BREWING
INSIDE OF ME
I FEEL STORMY!
EMOTIONS BUBBLE
TO THE SURFACE
RAPIDLY OVERTAKING ME
RAGE BUBBLES
ANGER SEAPS THROUGH
THERE’S A STORM
ITS BREWING
ME, I FEEL
LIKE A PRESSURE COOKER!
READY TO EXPLODE AT ANY SECOND
A STORM…
YES A STORM…
ITS BREWING!
SOMEONE SAVE ME
SAVE ME FROM MYSELF
AND THESE INTENSE FEELINGS
THAT THREATNEN
TO SEND ME SPIRALING!
SPIRALING INTO THE ABYSS

Bee’s Poem of the Day ~

Hello everybody, I hope you are having a wonderful day. Was walking our rescue greyhound Sherky this morning and we saw the moon in a gorgeous sky and some deer over the road. I am always awed when these graceful creatures honour me with their presence. This walk inspired me to try out a haiku and I would like to share it with Carol Anne and you:

Waning moon above

she feels freezing hands and nose

deer running along

 

May you have a wonderful day! x Bee x

 

Carol Anne’s Poetry Challenge for The Bee (14.11.18)

Thank’s Carol Anne for this weeks poetry challenge: Shimmering Glass

I am in a funny mood at the moment. It’s not really bad or going into depression even though I was close at the weekend but it sort of borders along it. So this prompt is like a shining beacon in my own weirdness if that makes sense.

Still, I could not really come up with something so I thought I am using my go-to page when I want to create poetry but can’t really get going: Language is a virus! The games and gadgets on that page are just brilliant to get your muse back into gear 😉

We had used its cut-up-machine a couple of days ago over at #frapalymo but I went for the haiku Madlib today: You are offered a row of boxes to add an adjective and a noun (three of each) and then your name. And it creates a haiku for you in the style of Basho. (sorry dear master for this indiscretion 😉 )

And this is mine for today:

In the Majorelle sky
these calm beach
A shimmering Glass

by Basho & The Bee                                      (admit I properly cheated LOL )

Hope you enjoyed this and feel free to take part and write your own poem to “shimmering glass”. Also, please do not miss Carol Anne’s poem to my prompt “Sand between my toes” here.

Old poetry

gripped by fear
she falls apart
tries to self soothe
nothing works
the flashbacks overcome her
vomiting for a whole hour
till her stomach is empty of everything
screaming silently
as a nurse holds her shaking body
is this how it is going to be forever?
