Mithrellas' Musings- Poetry, Stories and Photos . . .

Postby mithrellas » Wed Aug 23, 2017 1:34 pm

I get some comfort from trying to express myself creatively but fear judgement (though I do appreciate constructive criticism) and am always scared of not being good enough so I am hoping this will be a safe place to share some of my attempts; I will start by sharing a poem.


I had a Friend . . .



Someone gave me a chance once.
Then they did it again.
Whilst my faults hung
over me like a cloud,
they saw more.
Tried to see a bigger picture.
Sometimes.
It felt like home.
But my mistakes dangled
like a noose from a tree.

Prediction?
Paranoia?
Panic?

As bricks and mortar crumble
so will trust corrode and perish.
My failings reek of decay
rotting their patient . . . timber.

Disappointed,
frustrated,
by me.

Eventually.
They left me.

Alone.

So did I, Rachael. I like the way you use words. I'd like to read more of your poetry. :)

Thank you! I find it scary to share things I write from quite a personal place but it is lovely to receive positive feedback. I hope you enjoy this next one too.


Potential

I remember when I used to dream,
when hope and promise thrived.

I remember when the world went on forever,
when possibilities were as endless as the stars.

I remember when I spoke my mind,
when trusting myself felt like breathing.

I remember when I smiled on the inside,
when it wasn’t for anyone else but me.

I remember when I felt free,
when me was nothing to hide.


I don’t remember when I lost my way,
when my future passed me by.
