I've never really been particularly good at intimacy. I didn't practice it like many others my age. All my experiences with intimacy have always been at the level of friendship, which I believe has cost me friends over the years and has caused vindictive, vengeful girls to make up stories about me in order for them to make sense of why I never fell for them. And for all their efforts to vilify me, it only pushed me further away from the idea and the desire for closeness as some of them I really did care for but I was too respectful for their taste, too cautious for their desires, too... good for them. All I've ever wanted was a friend who could share life with me, but such innocent sentimentality is easily lost in a world chock full of instant gratification and mindless sex. I won't pretend to have always been perfect as my idea of intimate love has been reshaped by altercations with many different versions of intimacy, but what I've wanted has in fact always been the same. Because after each one left their mark inside my lonely heart, I found myself wanting something real. . And I know I'm not the only one. I know that there are many others out there just like me, but maybe they're not as honest with themselves as they would like to be. I just hope that you're able to see that before you've caused too much damage to your own lonely heart. • • • #write #read #follow #writer #writing #reading #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writerscommunity #writingcommunity #writingcommunityoginstagram #writingcommunityofig #writerscommunityofig #writerscommunityofinstagram #poem #poet #poetry #writer #creativewriting #spilledink #wordart #wordgasm #wordsmith #writtenword #bleedink #freeverse

Just a taste... Just a sip... To sate then that's it. I raised the glass up to my lips and down you went, but infinite. Within you more than eyes could see, but nothing you were willing to be. The secrets of eternity within my grasp yet you were but a memory lapse. Broken lines in my picture frames, bleeding color over all the names, I couldn't find you; my source of pain. Resolute to find the truth, I closed the door to keep you out, but you discovered another route. Cracks, imperfections, and subtle misdirection, were your tactics to gain new entry. Eventually your ocean found their way into my emotion. Infection was what you were until I found the cure. I opened the door and lit the pages ablaze. No more did I have to see your face. I was free to live in peace having been given from life a new lease. • • • #write #read #follow #writer #writing #reading #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writerscommunity #writingcommunity #writingcommunityoginstagram #writingcommunityofig #writerscommunityofig #writerscommunityofinstagram #poem #poet #poetry #writer #creativewriting #spilledink #wordart #wordgasm #wordsmith #writtenword #bleedink #freeverse

All I needed was a sip. At least that's what I told myself. But you were the sweetest drink I had ever tasted and so I thought I could make that sip a chug. I pulled my head back and let you fall, but you decided to play by your own rules. All you gave me were a few drops when I needed you and a raging waterfall when I was full. You were a desert that could bring tsunamis. There was no way to predict you, but there was one way to survive you. Distance. • • • #write #read #follow #writer #writing #reading #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writerscommunity #writingcommunity #writingcommunityoginstagram #writingcommunityofig #writerscommunityofig #writerscommunityofinstagram #poem #poet #poetry #writer #creativewriting #spilledink #wordart #wordgasm #wordsmith #writtenword #bleedink #freeverse

I used to hug you when you were here. When you would drop me off, you always made sure to come out of the car and give me a hug. It made me feel special, like was the only one in the world who you deemed worthy of your tender embrace. I always saw us one day actually having something longer than a hug to remember each other by. My dream came true the night we got drunk together. You made me drink, convinced me it'd be fun. I believed you because you never gave me any reason not to. We kissed for the first time and you wanted to move onto sex, but I made us slow down. We talked a lot about a lot of things. I thought it was love between us. But then one day, you didn't come out of the car. One day, you walked out the door and drove away without even a word. I buried myself in the last memory of you for at least a year. I didn't know what to do with myself. But I haven't been the same since then. I don't feel comfortable giving hugs. Even now, it feels like our thing, but you won't even talk to me... At least, not without telling me how much you hate me. Then again, that's all you'll say. I think you were the greatest con artist I've ever known. • • • #write #read #follow #writer #writing #reading #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writerscommunity #writingcommunity #writingcommunityoginstagram #writingcommunityofig #writerscommunityofig #writerscommunityofinstagram #poem #poet #poetry #writer #creativewriting #spilledink #wordart #wordgasm #wordsmith #writtenword #bleedink #freeverse

When I fall for somebody, I fall hard. My only saving grace is that I don't fall often. Normally, I'm very selective about who I have feelings for because I know the price that comes with emotional investment. Yet every so often, someone takes me off guard and I am smitten before I have raised my defenses. I think that's how she was. I was intrigued by her almost immediately, but I never expected our interactions to become something I treasured. But I've felt myself getting complacent in her absence. I find myself asking if it was ever real. People like to think of time as something that heals wounds but it also erodes memories, even the ones we swore we'd never forget. The outcome I fear is that one day, we'll mean nothing to each other, just like all my previous lovers. Because at the core of this hopeless romantic is the trepidation of her fleeting presence in a mind that's taken by her. • • • #write #read #follow #writer #writing #reading #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writerscommunity #writingcommunity #writingcommunityoginstagram #writingcommunityofig #writerscommunityofig #writerscommunityofinstagram #poem #poet #poetry #writer #creativewriting #spilledink #wordart #wordgasm #wordsmith #writtenword #bleedink #freeverse

The taste of déjà vu is a little too frequently on my lips. Too often than not I find myself remembering a moment just like this, where the room or the people or the emotion or the music are exactly as they were last time. It's that brief interval between interactions, between the occurrence and the response it clamors for, when I see it happen. It's strange how something so familiar can be found in a moment so fresh as the present. A face, lost to time and indifference, smiles back at me in the darkness and I'm left wondering how life could've been if you hadn't left mine. This peculiar idea of repeatable actions brings me into a dream state where I reimagine the life I've lived. That's the power of déjà vu; the power to take you back to moments you love and even to those you'd rather forget without needing to order a round-trip ticket. I believe that these free excursions can help us to reflect on our mistakes to help us better ourselves and also to encourage us when we have forgotten how we have overcome our past struggles. Déjà vu is not just a reminder that you have lived in a moment similar to this one, but also a marker of progress, like a bookmark, that shows you the similarities in life that you may understand that life maybe isn't as complex as you thought it to be. • • • #write #read #follow #writer #writing #reading #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writerscommunity #writingcommunity #writingcommunityoginstagram #writingcommunityofig #writerscommunityofig #writerscommunityofinstagram #poem #poet #poetry #writer #creativewriting #spilledink #wordart #wordgasm #wordsmith #writtenword #bleedink #freeverse

Looking back, even just a year, can show you so much about yourself. Nothing is more telling than the journey you took to get here. All the heartache, all the celebrations, all the mistakes, all the perfect choices that aligned for you; you're much more than your day to day activities... You're a whole lifetime of experiences crammed into a living breathing body. What choice you make next determines what else you will comprise of. Your next experience makes you, it creates a new version of you and makes way for your next set of experiences. So, don't so easily disregard your past or downplay your present because you're on the runway. • • • #write #read #follow #writer #writing #reading #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writerscommunity #writingcommunity #writingcommunityoginstagram #writingcommunityofig #writerscommunityofig #writerscommunityofinstagram #poem #poet #poetry #writer #creativewriting #spilledink #wordart #wordgasm #wordsmith #writtenword #bleedink #freeverse

Whenever I start to become a little uneasy or when I feel a little lost, I think of you and find a hope planted deep within me. Not much have I been sure of, but when it comes to you, I'm convinced you'd make me the happiest person alive. Maybe one day I'll close the gap I've planted artificially between us but until that time I'll keep this hope safe inside. • • • #write #read #follow #writer #writing #reading #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writerscommunity #writingcommunity #writingcommunityoginstagram #writingcommunityofig #writerscommunityofig #writerscommunityofinstagram #poem #poet #poetry #writer #creativewriting #spilledink #wordart #wordgasm #wordsmith #writtenword #bleedink #freeverse
