Something I wrote last night 💜

Always time for ice cream 🍦🍨🍧

To my children: if you hate me,  I understand . . . understand that  I will always love you.  To my father:  I don't hate you,  though I don't understand . . . I hope you can  find love one day.  Life doesn't always  go the way we plan,  the way we want, or like we dream . . .  I know you didn't want this either.  I can attest that deep within me I've dreamed of nothing greater  than love and family.  Happy Father's Day,  dad . . . though our days as kin and as friends have passed,  I still love and miss you. My daughters and sons,  I wish you knew  just how much I love you all.  I wish life didn't  fall apart or could  be fixed . . . yet,  I know that the  only guarantee  is I will miss you. #milesoutwest #heartbroken #imissyou #kids #family #liveforlove something I fear I may never know #poetrylovers #poetsofinstagram #poetsofig #instapoet #instapoetry #poetryofinstagram #poetryofig #poetryhive #poetrytribe #positivevibes looking at an empty future #poetrycommunity #igpoetry #deadpoetssociety #wordsmith #childrenarethefuture without #mychildren I fear that I am not. #💔

The weather changed, days adrift and seasons amid it all, and here I was trying to will nature from within you. You are not nature, though. You are discrepancies tied to love. You are convoluted promises, crumbled in translucent words. You willed your own will, and that had nothing to do with fate, and everything to do with a ready made expiration date. m.l.h @fledglingpoet . . . . . . . . #artsy #discover #will #fate #poemlove #poetry #poetsofig #poet #poetryporn #writersofinsta #writersofinstagram #write #poem #heart #poema #poemgasm #poetrycommunity #writerscommunity #artistsoninstagram

Life is a gift... We all know that. But the "I" of what we are, seems to be a much greater gift. The odds of being that "I". And no other "I". The whole "teachings" about denying oneself, denying the "I", in the many ways we are informed to "get over oneself", or to "get out of one's own way", sort of makes it seem as if we are missing the point of ourselves. I'm aware that the more I am attached to this physical "I", the more potential for suffering opens up. Especially if I refuse to acknowledge that nothing, no part of it, continues after death. But that is what makes it such a gift. To experience life in the form I am, not just life outside this physical form, tasting, smelling, touching etc but to also BE this "I". Isn't that such a beautiful thing? To be (this). We go through our whole life admiring, adoring, looking up to, loving other "I's" for being the "I's" they are. Giving them their space. But to let that sink in, that this "I" entails everything that IS life for the brief moment we are alive, is such a monumental, beautiful, near intoxicating, realization. ~•~ a beautiful milieu Image Morteza Yousefi @morteza_yousefi_ Please visit one of my favorite IG accounts for more of Morteza's fascinating photos https://www.instagram.com/morteza_yousefi_/ #poem #love #poet #writer #poetsofinstagram #writersofinstagram #writing #art #words #poems #quotes #poetrycommunity #wordporn #quote #poetsofig #life #music #writersofig #spilledink #poetryisnotdead #spokenword #prose #instapoet #inspiration #artist #writerscommunity #instagood #creativewriting #poets #writers

#Burden No one wants to be a burden, so maybe she never really left. Instead, she tried to give you what she thought you wanted; to be left alone. -C- I need some hashtags and prompts, help me out, pretty please 🙏... #ArthHeart #poetsofig #poetryisnotdead #poetsofinstagram #nycwriters #whoiscsminor #csminor #poetryporn #poetic #feels
