Vidas e instantes distintos y distantes amores que nacen ya eternos… Días sin prisa, lluvia de afectos nacen momentos sin horas sin sentimientos perfectos… Simplemente quiero observar tu mirada esperar ese guiño para correr a tu lado acariciar la levedad de tu brisa deseo que recuerdes mis dedos… Al rozarte en la nada. . . .

My first literary crawl as a performer and as an audience member. The Bronx's first literary crawl ever (to my knowledge). My first interview on News 12 The Bronx. So many firsts!!! I'm extremely grateful for all the support and opportunities I've been giving and will try not to disappoint! * * * #poetsnetwork #LearningToQuoteMyself #thebronxisreading #nywritingclub #bx #poetrycommunity #writingcommunity #amwriting #thebronx

It was a week, y'all. It was a week.
Now that I'm older And my hair is turning grey I know that you love me Although you rarely say I have been the black sheep And I still am today I love and respect you It's always been that way I just hope that I've made you proud of me In some sort of way Now that you're older And time is slipping away Old age has begun to wither you away I see it more and more with each passing day I would simply just like to say I love you Dad More than words Could ever begin to say Jeffery M Egenlauf ©jme1963 ®J.

one of the hardest things about being a 21st century woman or man—is body image. technology facilitates and maximizes our chances of gaining low self-esteem, eating disorders, illnesses, and so forth—detrimental to mental health. i know this poem speaks on the behalf of women, young girls—and that’s because i am disheartened by SO many young women, even as early as the age of 10—wonder why they don’t look like perfected images of girls in magazines. i get we’re all tired of the ‘love your body’ talk, but the reason WHY its continuation exists is because it has never stopped. and none of us, at least i won’t, will stop talking about this. i speak for both men AND women, who struggle with gaining control over their lives and resort to food. i speak for both men AND women who always see certain features being praised and shame those of their own. this poem is a mere fraction of the food-related, stress-related, comparison-consecutive body image issue that has taken on a life of its own. i can’t change the way people feel about themselves, but i can change the way people think. and when i do so, possibly people will begin to realize there’s far more than meets the eye. #poetry #bodypositive

Ten years ago in #Bali . My first book had just come out, and I was reading #poems from it. . Octobers have always been (or it feels like they have always been) difficult months for me. But somehow, four out of my five books so far have also been October releases. . . . #throwback #poet #poetsofinstagram #poetsnetwork #spokenword #poetrysociety #writerslife #writersnetwork #writingcommunity #poetrycommunity #reading #poetryreading #instatravel #instamemory #poetry #Ubud #Indonesia #traveldiary #writer #writing #author #authorsofinstagram #writersofinstagram #poetsofinstagram #books #bookish #poetscorner #poetrylovers
Years 🌠 // Years and years. Years of struggle. . How you felt like an unstoppable unicorn, so majestic, confidence beamed through yours pores. You were a beautiful human being. Pure. Naïve. . It happened too fast. You thought you can hold it all together. But you felt it. Trembling. Shaking below your feet. Did you ignore it? Like an avalanche it happened. Life happened. . Some lies we say. Some reasons we create. Reasons to cover up. Some stories we make. Who was that meant for? Those that mattered to you or yourself? Illusions. Some illusions we make. . Saving your sanity can be such a complicated thing. Some screams you bury a little deep. You couldn't believe. Losing the count of days you cried. So you did it. All over again. Fell in the same pit again. Nobody could see, how breathlessness was engulfing. Some part of you died. Some wounds left, festering. . You started hiding. From the world. From yourself. Wearing faces. Oh I am like this only! Forgetting how it feels to be you. Lost. It can a feeling too. Nobody told you that isn't it? Somethings they don't teach. You were good at making little worlds. Survival instincts. . It's not an endless grass field for everyone. For some it's an endless turbulent ocean. For some it's an endless sky full of stars. Different stories, different pages. Learning is like making a road. You were a slow learner though. Maybe everyone is. . And it keeps coming back. The feeling of falling into the abyss. New pits appearing at every step. Falling apart. Shattering. Over and over and over again. . Remember this, How you felt like an unstoppable unicorn, so majestic, confidence beamed through yours pores. You were a beautiful human being. You are a beautiful human being. Constant. Strong. Infinite. Always. . Years and years. Years of your journey. Years of your story. Far from over. . With love, Yours, Yourself. ❤
someone i know, who lived centuries ago accepted the feeling of not knowing where he's going and i scoffed as soon as i read it because, 'man you're lost anyway.' and this person who was a battler and a poet and a father to three women told me that he wants to fly, for once, for real. and i moved toward him like an angel with black wings and i pushed him from the 30th floor of a station that exists in my world, alright? i pushed him and i shouted 'you'll never know, until you take the jump.' the good thing is he did flew away, right in front of my eyes. i woke up in my dreams last night, there was a black dog lying beside me with teeth as sharp as a machete and eyes that were slideshowing my childhood and how i once bit the arm of this man trying to pull my ear. my mother says it's my brain playing games, my father says it's the books i read, the last book i read was about this man who used to roam around talking to cats. my mom and dad know me so well. #naivepennings
I have only just realised how - because it was just a matter of weeks between when #TheAltarOfTheOnlyWorld (my #poetry collection 9 years in the making) was released and I became immersed in writing my new novel, #TheQueenOfJasmineCountry - I did not do enough as an author for Altar to travel further. So up now on my #igtv channel is a video recital of the poem "Nightblindness", from which the #book 's title comes. I'll do more of these if you like it.
