    Poetry potluck wk 14- Writing 


    I write to set free emotions

    To remember the tears

    And to somehow forget the commotions

     

    Writing is my therapy, my sanity

    The words that come out of me have a yearning to live

    They have their own vanity

     

    These words come to life

    As soon as they hit the air

    Cutting through like a knife

     

    These words are me

    Who I am

    They are merely the debris of my heart

    Potluck week 13- Escape 


    In my dream

    Life is sweet

    Sweet as this butterscotch ice cream

    People are eccentric just like me

    Not hypocrites or judgmental

    Going about their life carefree

    There is laughter

    There isΒ  love

    Nothing looks bad hereafter

    I wish I could live in my dreams

    Today, Tonight, Tomorrow

    I’m tired of the same regimes

    I need an escape from this place

    I need an escape to survive

    I want to live in my dreams, where I can decide the pace

    Where I can change it all in an instant

    Let’s escape to this imaginary place

    My dreams

     

    This is my entry for the Potluck week 13 on Jingle Poetry

      I find my daydreams a comforting and wonderful place for the exact same reasons. If I did not have an imagination, I would not have survived this life of mine.

      Aw… Beautiful dream. I will go with you. πŸ™‚
      ‘Sweet as this butterscotch ice cream’ Liked this simile. There is a touch of childlike and innocent.

      I wish I could live in my dreams too. We are very similar, you and me. My dreams are perfect. He is perfect in them. My family is perfect in them. Life as we know it, is perfect. I too want to live in my dreams forever.

      Thanks for this post. It put a smile on my face and reminded of the beautiful dreams I have too.

      I enjoyed this so much. The dream world can so often feel so much finer than the day-to-day one and you captured that feeling perfectly.

    Whose To Blame?

     

    Some part of me wants to blame You for allowing me to fall for him.

    Part of me wants to ask You why You let my emotions get so deeply involved.

    I want to cry out and ask why You let me love him so much when he could care less about me.

    Why did You let him kiss me? Why did You allow him to touch me?

    Some part of me wants to ask why didn’t You protect my heart better.

     

    You helped me keep my ground when it came to others.

    You helped me wait for over five years

    But he came along and effortlessly had everything I held back on for so long.

     

    I want to ask You why was it so easy for me to fall for him.

    Why did You allow me to fall for someone who would only hurt me?

    Someone who doesn’t even want to be friends.

    I wonder Β why you didn’t you make me stronger when it came to him.

     

    I want to blame You for this heartache I’m feeling

    But in reality it was all my fault.

    I let him kiss me. I wanted him to.

    I let him use me.

    I let him come and go as he pleased.

    I knew there were others he paid more attention to.

    I knew he wasn’t giving me what I deserved

    But I stayed.

     

    I wish I could blame him. I sometimes want to blame You

    But it was me all along.

    I amΒ to blame.

    Perfect poet award winner- week 34

    I humbly accept the award! Thank you, Jingle
    I nominate http://thejuliebook.wordpress.com/2010/12/01/heroine/

     

    Some things- I just need to walk away from

    From your laughter

    Your critiques

    Your choking hold

     

    I need to break free from this oppression,

    Run away as fast as I can

     

    But somehow you always follow me,

    Stalking me like prey

     

    Without warning

    Without much purpose

    I’m just easy game

    Day Dream 


    I sit in a room surrounded by people

    Yet I’m still alone

    Lost somewhere in my thoughts

    Thinking about a better place

    A place where I wouldn’t have to pretend

    That I am all together

    Where I would laugh

    Instead of wanting to scream

    Smile instead of wanting to weep

    I want to be anywhere

    Anywhere but here

    Anywhere where my company

    Isn’t you

    Or these four walls

    These horrible tiles on the floor

    This horrible furniture

    That doesn’t even match with the decor

    Anywhere, but here!

      This is how I feel when I’m at the nursing home, wishing my mom and I were anyplace else but there. This so perfectly describes it. Thank you, Tootsie.
