Fleeting times, blurred lines and I'm having trouble finding the leaks that caused this vacancy. Catacombs erupted and built themselves into mazes from the death of the presence of familiar faces. Outcasted and given a survivor's mind, spilling words to fill the cups that seem to be empty too often in hopes to find some temporary peace and solace. Scanning, always scanning the room to find an escape and maybe a familiar face. Daydreams mixing with nightmares and exhausted loves turning good hearts into charcoal ones. Barely holding on, a tourist to my own mind's seasons; never informed of the schedule, so always caught off guard. If only I could convince myself of the truth; I am still young in the scope, it's true. So, why is it I feel as if I'm only losing time as it closes on me rapidly? An ocean wave meant to take me back to the depths of the constant thoughts and the darkest times of my broken childhood. I'll betray myself and spill apologies for the mistakes I've never made. Let me write a book and address it to myself, name it 'confused, with brighter days ahead' and put the letters I wrote to you when I was alone inside it's pages aside the scraps that I'm calling a man's diary. It seems as if I'm building a wooden cabin in the path of a forest fire, leaning on the hope of rain. At least I was there to be a part of your journey, I just hope it was enough for you to remember me today or maybe tomorrow. Living on unexpected smiles and the singing of song birds when it seems there are none. Could I read between the lines, or was that another lie I told myself to find justification for the things I regret? Raw and etched on the stones I'm calling 'a path to healing,' if only it was that easy to see progress when there's fog everywhere. Nothing seems to be different, but it's nice to open the window to this boarded up house once in a while. Maybe one day I'll be able to remodel and replace the burned out lights.

Have you been the Lone Strider? Have you been the one searching for your voice? You will find your place.
Forevermore you hold my heart, Forevermore you play an integral part In making my day that much sweeter to take away from the tart. Forevermore my heart belongs to you, Breaking your heart is something I wouldn't do, Forevermore I choose to care for you faithfully, Forevermore I give myself to you rightfully. I always have been and always will be yours, forevermore. #forever #forevermore #poetrycommunity #instapoet #instapoetry #poetsofinstagram #poetrysociety #igpoets #writingcommunity #creativewriting #wordporn #poetryporn #poems #poet #poem #poetsociety #poetryofinstagram #poetsofig #instapoetry #poemsofinstagram #wordsmith #wordgasm
Does the nights didn't haunt you, Does the days didn't need you, Puffing heart forever needs you, Aren't you afraid of the dark, Aren't you afraid of the falls, Aren't you afraid of the middle moon apart. Doesn't it gets into your mind, Doesn't it rips your soul, Doesn't it make you heartless, Doesn't it make you whore, Don't you have heart, Or are you aboard, To the land of unfaithfuls, Where they made the devil's soul. Why are you inhuman, Don't you have a soul, Don't you worship the forbidden angels for being asuured, Does the nights make you sad And days make you feel depressed, Of the person that would never be yours. - Ali Aryan . . #poetryislove #poetrygram #poetrytribe #poetrycommunity #poetryhive #poetrycommunityofinstagram #poetrylover #poetryclub #prilaga #poetrybook #poetryislife #poetrychallenge #poetryisnotdead #poetryslam #poetrybooks #poetrysociety #poetrylove #poetryinmotion #poetrylovers #poetry_addicts #poetryloving #poetryofinstagram #poetry #poetryisart #poetryporn #poetryofig

Always hated math, till I met him...
i never use to be the one to buy into things happening for a reason. but i’ve seen too much and experienced too much for it to be nothing more than just a coincidence, you know? it never makes any sense, but it doesn’t have to. the gears are always moving. (side note: the original post a few minutes ago had dominoes spelled like dominos the pizza place, i must be hungry 😂) #thastorytellaz . . . . . #poetsofinstagram #writersofinstagram #writersofig #poetsofig #micropoetry #poetrysociety #omypoetry #poets #writersnetwork #thegoodquote #wordporn #bymepoetry #mirakee #poemporn #instapoem #igwritersclub #spilledink #wordswithkings #lovequotes #poetryisnotdead #herheartpoetry #poetrycommunity #writerscommunity #spilledthoughts #love #rmdrake #madewords #writerscorner #igwriters

Tyrant by Joshua ( @american.promises ) . Because @theanxioushopeful and @of.pearls.and.swine exposed me as a Cormac McCarthy fanfiction writer - I thought I would share this with everyone. Haha. . They went in through the back door with gas masks and shotguns and they shot the first man who went for something at his waistline. The room filled with smoke and everyone at the poker table thought twice about making any sudden movements. Hands on the table, the lead gunman said. The men put their palms to felt and watched the looming gods and waited for the sentence to be passed down. . The shot caller strolled in through the front door and went over to the dead man. He bent down and picked up the spent shell. Between his index finger and thumb he presented it to the table. How little it takes to rob a man of his life, the shot caller said. Dont make us steal again. . Three minutes, the lead gunman said. . The shot caller nodded and tossed the casing away. He circled the men at the table and he stopped behind a man with shoulder length hair and made a handle out of it. Who here can open it, he asked. The man did not answer but his eyes went to a man in a suit. The lead gunman rounded on him and pressed the barrel of his gun to the back of the mans head. . Do you know who youre stealing from? I do. Open it. Im not opening it. I will order that man to kill you. You wont. I will and I will sleep soundly tonight. We all die. Do you think Im a man of half measures? I dont know what kind of man you are. Im a tryant in the making. I'll hit when I hit. Open the fuckin safe. Now. . #writing #instaquotes #poetry #prose #poems #writersofig #writersofinstagram #igpoets #heartofpoets #instapoetry #poetrysociety #poemsporn #instapoem #poetryisnotdead #quotesgram #spilledink #poetsociety #wordsmith #micropoetry #creativewriting #quotes #author #writerscorner #writingtherapy #spilledthoughts #excerptfromabookillneverwrite #poem #poeticjustice #igwriters #americanpromises
You’ve got to dig deep and find the strength to survive. You will always be faced with trials and tribulations. It’s how you overcome adversity that counts. Don’t allow the light switch to turn off indefinitely. This world can be a cruel place but it is equally as beautiful. I liken life to photography as you use the negatives to develop. There is always something enlightening that you can take away from your pain. For every tear you cry is replaced with wisdom and strength. Never give up on your journey, on love or on things that excite you. Believe in yourself! Believe that anything is possible! Manifest abundance into your life! If you don’t know how, I can help you. Email me to arrange a time to change your mindset and help alleviate your limited beliefs 💫 • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #wordsmith #poem #poemsofinstagram #poetry #quote #quoteoftheday #writer #writingcommunity #writersofig #quotes #relationships #instapoem #instapoet #typewriter #poetrysociety #followforfollow #followmefollowyou #followback #followher #f4f #followteam #followgram #follower #following #followyou #followinstagram #follow #ifollow #follows
A Quick Tale On a dusty track through a dusty mind Shallow footprints tracked through time He follows them to see what he'll find When he reaches the horizons line A beaten path through thick bush land Never farmed by any hand Holding aloft a burning brand A weary traveller in clothes once grand In a large grass covered clearing With the sun overhead baking, searing Listening close to the voice he's hearing This great journey's end is nearing On a rivers shore of pale stones Stands a figure all alone Dull in colour like sun bleached bone No longer does the traveller roam ©Aarron Mondello 8/5/2018 #poet #poetsofig #poetsociety #poetscommunity #poets #poetsofig #poetsociety #poetsofinstagram #poetscorner #poetry #poetryofig #poetryislife #poetrysociety #poetryisnotdead #poetryofinstagram #poetrycommunity #poem #poems #poemsofig #poemsofinstagram #poemwriter #poemwars #writersofinstagram #writerslife #writersofig #writers #writerscommunity  #globalpoetcult #myworldsinwords #traveller #alone #mind

“Landslide”
I once advocated for the release of an elephant in a zoo- chained for 20 years and infected. I was asked why I didn’t advocate for human issues because that’s more important. ••••• I once advocated for aid to help Syrian refugee children- lost in the middle of a world adults had created. I was asked why I didn’t advocate for American children because they need help too. ••••• I once advocated for veteran benefits and medical aid, and was asked why I didn’t advocate for the people who live in countries ruined by the wars veterans participated in. ••••• I once advocated for education in the Middle East and was asked why I didn’t advocate for the education of our vets and our vets’ children. ••••• I once advocated for increased awareness of ALS and was asked why I didn’t advocate for all diseases. ••••• I’ve found that people can choose how to live. You can do nothing, or you can do something, but you can’t do everything. ••••••
