Emotions will lie
When you're with someone you know...
by Ben Pickard
always so much brighter when...
Stuck in the eye of the storm.
These walls built from wind keeping me trapped in...
floating through an orchestral valley-
the sun glances over the shoulders...
by Em (marmite)
everything irritates you so easily nowadays
even those that you once found irresistible...
distant noise registers as loudly
as my own thoughts- water running...
The saddest tears are the driest ones seen in the bravest smile.
Don't tell one who writes of grief to rethink their "I" statements. When you know they had tears on their hands as they wrote, don't say the poem could be better. You might as well say their grief could be worse.
If someone shares a poem with you that is meant to help close an open wound, they don't want your opinion. They want your hand on their shoulder, gripping it tight.
