Having layers so thin

Attached to the strings

Important and must

To carry forward

The loyalty in you.


Is it difficult or easy

To take the burden

Is it inbuilt or

We have to build the talent

To satisfy the norms.

It was a candid confession
when she told her mom
how it happened
and how did it start
How first it was
all game and play
and now it has turn into
a painful, hurtful thing
which is ripping
her soul apart.

Truthful Hurts

by graypoet


It came as a surprise that things clicked
Maybe we were looking for a distraction
But emotions got involved and blossomed
Hard to deny that there was an attraction.
I dreamed.

If the words
that You read
by my hand
hurt You

I shall lay down my pen
and not write
for I never
ever want to hurt
the heart of My Friend

If the words

Cats Eye

by braveandrecklessblog

Your words roll toward me

across the table of silence

like cats eye marbles

that I can pick up and examine

wonder at the jewel toned beauty

the sculptured moments captured inside

Peeling back my layers

Slowly, gently, carefully

One by one

Like the petals of a zinnia bud


My instinct is usually

To stay your hand

My little daughter goes to sleep.
I hope that monster doesn’t creep
Back to her bed to say, “Hello!”
She tells me that it’s wicked, though.

Let Go

by Miriam Hurdle


Let go without despised,

I know I can’t change anyone.

Let go without apathetic,

I respect we are different.

Let go without hopeless,

I declare He is in control.

by Renwick Berchild

I am believing.

People pass around.
There is some cup of blankness here.
Fingers and palms forecast everything.
Algorithms are sorting people out.
People are groaning into themselves.
People are sowing eyes shut.
People are stretching out like bubblegum refusing to break.

A Bruised Petal

by Swann Lavender

Would you be angry with a tender petal
that bruised under the pressure of your grasp?
Yet at my expression of hurt, frustration,
you turn your dagger eyes towards me,
aim your piercing words,
shattering the shelter of trust
you’ve been rebuilding
in more thoughtful hours.

Looking Up

by graypoet

“When you get to the bottom, many times you find a hole with your name on it..”

Charles Townsend

There are times when you look at life
And wonder how you got in this position
Is it that you give to much of yourself
Or expect someones love without question.
