“I don’t know if I ever told you this” she whispered, in the middle of the silence and between her too loud not to notice heartbeats, a shy smile built up in her face. “But I write poetry.”

“Poetry? Like with rhymes, funny words and all?” she could feel him smiling, and that made her laugh.

“No, not like that” she told him. “With feelings.”

I’m sick of writing about him.

apoetslifeforme:

In seventh grade, my teacher told us
a poet
was not someone who would only write
poetry. The poet, she said,
saw everything, every moment,
as poetry.
The grass, the wind,
the sound silence makes.
I’ve grown up between books and verses, since then,
seeing with my eyes the truth in her words.
It seems like a burden, to say the least,
but there are moments when
there’s poetry dancing through my mind,
that makes me so sure,
so glad,
I’m alive.

Some forms of art
are not supposed to make you comfortable
with the truths you already set for life.
Some forms of art
are supposed to make you think,
think, think.
Some forms of art
are supposed to ease the pain,
and bring teardrops on your eyes - but also
some forms of art
can release the weight you’ve been carrying
on your shoulders.

Think again, smile and let go (via apoetslifeforme)

I was always so
painfully honest,
it blinded me, thinking
everyone
was just the same.

My window
stays a whole more time
closed than 
open.
I wonder if
I
do that too.
