Seldomly, I cry

Seldomly she said
Seldomly I cry
Why?
Because, because
Crying shows how weak I am
Never!
Crying is theraputic
It is a release
could she?
Would she?
Was crying really ok?
Her friend motioned to her
Just let it go
Dont worry!
Fear not!
Crying, everyone should do it!
Its healing!
She sat staring into her coffee mug
Wondering, pondering
Was this really true?
Should she just let go?
It was seldomly that she did
She never wanted to be percieved as weak
but maybe, maybe
she could now, just this once!

I wrote this poem in relationship to how I feel at the moment. I am feeling as if I shouldnt be so weak, I shouldnt cry, I shouldnt let my guard down. I suppose its ok though, right? Its ok not to be ok?

Todays Prompt: Write a piece using the phrase;explicit emotion

tears spill

her eyes leak

as she sits

shivering

shaking like a leaf

it builds and builds

until

its a tornado

explicit emotion

written all over her face

anger, rage

fear, so so much fear

she grips the table

as her head swims

everything begins to blurr

she starts to remember

holding her breath

she starts to cry again

rage disapating

but that fear

the fear of knowing but not wanting to know

what happened to her

is so real

And she thinks

She’s going to die from it.

Shirley, our host wrote this poem, in response to thinking about her childhood and what happened to her during it.

3 things challenge

Todays prompt: chemistry, blanket, mailbox

wrapping her arms around herself like a blanket
walking out into the cool brisk air
she walks to the mail box
softly singing a tune
would it be there?
The letter from him?
would she feel the chemistry between them
When she picked it up
And read the words?
She skipped lightly down the sidewalk
And when she got to the mailbox
to her huge surprise
Instead of the letter she’d been expecting
There he was
Tall dark and handsome
Gosh he was so handsome
There he was
Waiting, and as they embraced
He smiled, she smiled
The happiest smile
On earth

Poetry

She came from nothing
Humble beginnings
Just a girl, lost
Afraid, alone
Her face was a picture
So kind, so gentle
Her voice soft, melodic
This humble girl
Who had the voice of an angel
Her life was so hard
It wasnt easy at all
But she soldiered on
She was a trooper
She was fiercely independent
Relied on no one
Got through life
On a wing and a prayer
And even though at times
Fear would grip her
She never gave in to its power
And now, today
she walks, with her head held high
A true survivor
Who came from humble beginnings
A warrior
Because surviving is what she does best

This too shall pass

cool air
as i sit here
contemplating
what to do
where to go
how to be
emotional instability
inner turmoil
sort of overwhelmed
by my emotions
sit, take a breath
wrap myself in a blanket
hot chocolate
warm, steaming mug in hand
try to just be
leave my feelings go
leave them at the door
enjoy the moment
this feeling of instability
will pass soon enough

3 things challenge 10th February 2019

Todays prompts are: dominoes, bones, death
******
Falling, falling
Like dominos all in a row
My emotions, they scatter
To and fro
My head spins
Mind whirls
Bones creak
As I seek
To try to understand
Why?
Why my feelings are so intense
I cant though
Never know
Never seeing
Why death feels so close
And why?
Its an option
For me…
Always an option
Something I’m thinking about
As my facial bones ache
From pasting on that smile
And trying to face
The world one more day
Trying to go on
Trying to cope
With the emotional turmoil I live with
On a daily basis

3 things challenge feb. 9th 2019

Today’s prompts are: canteen, language, tolerable
*******
And you speak a language
I am unfamiliar with
but…
As we sit
Together in the cantine
I turn to you
And softly whisper
You are tolerable
And you smile
that rye smile of yours
as we share a giggle
and then you proclaim
tolerable?
only tolerable?
I turn to you again
Hold your hand in mine
and say…
Of course my love
Of course I was joking
You know your the greatest
the bees knees
your the love of my life
If I say your only tolerable
in our language
that means
I love you more and more
with each passing day
