1. I have a cactus that I constantly cut my fingers on,
And a plant so soft I always reach to stroke its leaves.
They sit side by side on my windowsill,
A miniature orchid pushed off to the side,
Its purple flowers glowing.

2. The day I gave away my wheelchair
I cried until my throat was raw,
Rough sobs shaking my whole skeleton.
I still don’t know if it was in relief
Or in fear.

3. I remember every time my mother
Has called me vile
And meant it.
The echoes haunt me,
And I’ve never told her.
Never told her that I remember.
Never told her that I believe her.

4. I love my father.
I hate him at the same time.
He’s done terrible things.
But I know he loves me.
I know he tried.
I think he wants me to love him,
To forget about the hate.
I’m not sure I can.

5. Sometimes I go looking for help.
I always end up crying
Before I find it.
I stop searching.

6. There are some things I’ll never do straight away,
Like laundry and vacuuming and painkillers.
Like admitting I need more help than I am getting.
And then there are things I’ll never stop doing,
Like mixing up my words and laughing at puns,
Like secretly crying and silently screaming.

7. My mother called me a disappointment
And my blood run cold.
It can never be erased,
No matter how many pretty words she uses.
I don’t think she realises.

8. I don’t have a plan
When it comes to dying.
But I know how I want to do it
And that’s too close for comfort.

9. Sometimes
I’m okay.
I’m not.
It’s getting harder to tell the difference.

10. I never forgot to water my plants before.
Today I noticed them dying.
The wind guides her waves,
Leads them to the shore,
Soothes them through the break,
And takes off once more.

Quite eyes watch the sunlight
Playing across the waters surface,
Imperfections gloriously highlighted,
Beautiful and fleeting,
This is a moment to live in.

We are made of shipwrecks,
Edges broken and splintered,
Sails stained and torn.
We are lost
But maybe we can find each other.

We still cling to anchors
And clasp tight to our broken compass,
Scarred from every hull
These rocks have claimed.
But we pick ourselves up,
And others along the way.

We are made from shipwrecks,
Grounded by stormy seas.
Do you want to search
For seashells with me?
How I See Healing
I think I've been thinking too much lately. 
150 deviations
Life made dinner last night,
Singing along to the birdsong
And saturating the building
With basil and mint.

Death sulked in the living room,
His coat clenched tight.
I started the fire
And pretended not to notice his shivers.

"You hate me." He said.


I think I love him.

"You like Life." He grumbled.

And I listened to the singing,
Considered the smells soaking into my carpets,
And the freezing man waiting for him.
Always freezing
And always waiting.

"No." I said.

                    "Life's a slut."
Family Dinners
They visit me often.

Most great poems tell a story,
Teach a lesson,
Add something to the world
That was always there
But needed to be remembered.

This isn’t a great poem.
This is just the realisation
That one day
You let go of my hand.

And never picked it up again.

Hey! :rose:

I wanted to drop by personally to say thanks for joining TheWritePlace! I’m excited that people seem enthusiastic about it :giggle: If you wanna know more about our group check out Our Rules (there aren’t many and they’re all mostly common sense to me!) or just ask! If you fancy getting more involved we do have positions open which you can find out about here. For now I hope you enjoy the group and find it helpful. If you have ideas on how to make it more useful, suggestions, feedback, anything, just let us know - and when our chatroom #TheWritePlace officially launches (soon) I hope to see you in there too :love:
