Some things are impossible to live without. And some of these things aren’t things at all, they’re people. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #poe#poeta> #poem #poet #poetsofinstagram #wri#wri#wri#writea>stagram #writing #poetsofig #writer #poetrycommunity #womenwhowrite #wordporn #writersofig #wor#words #spilledink #instapoet #typewriter #prose #poetsociety #creativewriting #instapoem #writers #write #writerscommunity #instapoetry #writingcommunity #quotes #words #thoughts

The seconds were always too long, time passed by too slowly, and I always wanted to be moving faster - skipping ahead to the next exciting thing or the next accomplishment. Until the day when you showed me the value of a second and the value of a moment. After you the seconds were too short and the moments went by too fast, and I became the opposite of what I was before. I pined for slow motion, just to have more time with you. Time was no longer something that I wanted to rush. It became something I valued. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Let me know how this makes you feel in the comments below, and tag someone who made you wish for longer seconds. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #poe#poeta> #poem #poet #poetsofinstagram #wri#wri#wri#writersofinstagram #writing #poetsofig #writer #poetrycommunity #womenwhowrite #wordporn #writersofig #wor#words #spilledink #instapoet #typewriter #prose #poetsociety #creativewriting #instapoem #writers #write #writerscommunity #instapoetry #writingcommunity #quotes #words #thoughts

How can someone be so beautiful and yet be blind to their beauty? Maybe people are like the sun, which rises and falls in a stunning display of colour, creating a beauty seen by everyone, except for itself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #poe#poeta> #poem #poet #poetsofinstagram #wri#wri#wri#write>nstagram #writing #poetsofig #writer #poetrycommunity #womenwhowrite #wordporn #writersofig #wor#words #spilledink #instapoet #typewriter #prose #poetsociety #creativewriting #instapoem #writers #write #writerscommunity #instapoetry #writingcommunity #quotes #words #thoughts #greatvipin

The days are long, but the years are short. Somehow life manages to take two very opposite things and be both of them simultaneously, and I will always wonder how. Then again, people manage to do the same thing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #poe#poeta> #poem #poet #poetsofinstagram #wri#wri#wri#write>nstagram #writing #poetsofig #writer #poetrycommunity #womenwhowrite #wordporn #writersofig #wor#words #spilledink #instapoet #typewriter #prose #poetsociety #creativewriting #instapoem #writers #write #writerscommunity #instapoetry #writingcommunity #quotes #words #thoughts #greatvipin

I watched you transform yourself from someone who was broken by life to someone who was whole. I watched you recover, and watching you go through this process confirmed to me that it was possible. Anyone who feels broken and shattered right now can put themselves back together. Not only can you be whole again, but you can become stronger in the places that broke. Being broken isn’t the end. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Comment below how this poem makes you feel, and tag someone who you think will like it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #poe#poeta> #poem #poet #poe#poetsofinstagram #wri#wri#wri#writersstagram #writing #poetsofig #writer #poetrycommunity #poems #wordporn #writersofig #words #spilledink #instapoet #typewriter #prose #poets #creativewriting #instapoem #writers #write #writerscommunity #instapoetry #writingcommunity #quotes #deepquotes #mentalhealth #broken #heal

Some sounds are too beautiful to be captured with words, and this is one of them. This little guy is 10 years old today and he’s spent 9 of those years by my side. In the time we’ve spent together he has brought so much joy into my life, and although he is small, the impact he has had on me has been far from small. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m a poet, and by definition of that I should be able to express what he means to me in some poetic way, but the feelings I have for this little bird are too strong to be expressed in words. To me, no words sound as beautiful as the purring sound he makes when we pet him. It’s my favourite sound and it always brings me joy. I hope Buckbeak can bring you some joy today as well. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To read his story and learn about what he taught me, check out my previous post on him. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #poet #poetsofinstagram #poetry #wri#wri#wri#writersstagram #writing #poetsofig #writer #poetrycommunity #wordporn #writersofig #cockatiel #bird #birds #pet #cockatiels #cockatielsofinstagram #birdsofinstagram #cockatiellove #parrot #rescue #whorescusedwho #poetrylover #birthday #writers #write #writerscommunity #writingcommunity

You feel like you are moving in slow motion while everyone around you is in fast forward. You see everyone else’s success, and with that your shortcomings stand out to you even more. If this describes you, hang in there and keep moving forward. Not all lights are meant to shine right away and some might take a little more time. Don’t compare yourself to other people, but rather focus on yourself and what you need. One day, you will explode with light like a firework. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Comment how this makes you feel, and tag someone you think needs to see this. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #poe#poeta> #poem #poet #poetsofinstagram #wri#wri#wri#writernstagram #writing #poetsofig #writer #poetrycommunity #poems #wordporn #writersofig #words #spilledink #instapoet #typewriter #prose #poetsunite #poetryisnotdead #instapoem #writers #write #writerscommunity #instapoetry #writingcommunity #quotes #light

Light will always be there for those who choose to look for it, but the question is, will you? During a period of darkness it can be hard to see the light and even harder to believe that it exists. That’s why, during these times, it is important to consciously seek out the light. From small acts of kindness to people asking how you are, light is always in our daily lives. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Comment below something that lights up your life, or a story of you finding light during a dark time. If a person helped you see the light, tag them in the comments to thank them for the help. We all need it sometimes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #poe#poetry #poem #poet #poetsofinstagram #wri#wri#wri#writernstagram #writing #poetsofig #writer #poetrycommunity #poems #wordporn #writersofig #words #spilledink #instapoet #typewriter #prose #poetsunite #poetryisnotdead #instapoem #writers #write #writerscommunity #instapoetry #writingcommunity #quotes #darknessintolight
