    Created

    I am
    The smell of old dusty books
    Frantically opened for the millionth time
    By shaking hands that sought escape
    I am
    The heroes and Faeries
    Imaginations that held my hand to sleep
    When my darkest storms sent everyone else running
    I am
    The glow of the moon
    Reminding me that she was there when my suns
    Decided that they needed a break
    I am
    The warriors and queens in my stories
    That taught me more lessons
    Than any textbook ever had

    Nature

    It is nature
    For humans to want things balanced
    The right amount
    The right poignancy
    The right consistency
    From stories of Goldilocks
    To the diffusion taking place between our atoms
    It is nature
    For us to itch to pour our love
    Into voids of people unwilling to give a drop
    And it is nature
    To want to suck the hope and joy
    From those brimming so full of it
    That we seek to right the unbalance
    It is nature
    That even Aristotle declared both too little
    And too much of virtue becomes vice
    It is nature

    My reapers

    Everyday
    I am drowning
    In the wasteland I call my thoughts
    In the tsunami I call my insecurities
    And I am stuck
    In the middle of a whirlpool
    Of people rushing in circles all around
    Still alone
    And I am crushed
    Under the glowing galaxy of my expectations
    Like Atlas beneath the canvas i hold
    But still I live
    Cursed to continue dying
    Until the day I finally succumb
    To the gentle squeeze of my reapers

    Comets

    She tried to squeeze herself
    Into the mould the world gave her
    To pretend that she felt whole
    Without scars and flaws embracing her
    For when the world had cast her aside
    And when those that held her heart left
    When the only homes she had ever known crumbled
    Her wounds stayed
    Her insecurities never disappeared
    And her scars were there to remind her
    That she was still alive
    So darling, when u feel like the world has stolen part of you
    Remember that stars were just pieces of broken comets
    Till they shone and pierced apart their darkness

    Dreams

    She shot spells from her eyes
    Tamed dragons with a murmur
    She sang her demons to sleep
    And turned nectar to poison
    She wore her wounds and scars
    Like wings on her back
    And kept in her pocket
    A sky of all the stars she's mapped
    She braided her hair
    With stems of thorns
    And offered her tears
    To soothe the dwindling fae that mourn
    And every night she returns to the clouds
    When she the first child snores
    So she may teach them through dreams
    That they aren't just children, they're so much more

    Hai I did this poem paying careful attention line length and punctuation to invoke certain connotations

    Not

    I am strong.
    A brick carrying age old palaces
    I am unmoving.
    A rock in a gushing stream
    I am poised.
    A steel pole in a typhoon of emotions
    I am cold.
    a block of ice in a desert meant to destroy
    I am in denial
    Trying to convince myself of invinciblity
    No
    i am as meek soft willed insecure and sensitive as a human was made to be
    And I'm so tired of pretending I'm not

    Of Comets and diamomds

    The night was always told
    To hide it's outbursts of light
    To be content as a calm dark
    Told never to fight
    So it covered its comets
    And diamond knives
    With gray heavy clouds
    And thought that was alright
    But the truth is you can't keep comets
    Encompassed
    And diamonds
    Will always shine
    So the sky gave up
    And then there was light

    #womenempowerment
    #womenrights
    Just felt angry that no matter whether you keep your last name or your husband's your trapped in a make's last name
    And this very essence of tradition all over the world is the reason why gender equality is far from being achieved

    Branded

    They say we are equal in marriage
    Then they stamp our kin
    Force us into the shackles of a man's name
    and we are signed over and dismissed
    Like a newly purchased belonging
    Packaged with a neat and permanent tag
    And women have to fight
    Fight to show that love is not submission
    Fight for a last name that they think is their own
    But they struggle and cry
    Just to keep a name of another man
    A name of males before them
    Never their own
    We beg to escape being encompassed
    In the name of a man we agreed to love
    To keep the name of a man we were birthed to love
    So we are branded in the mother's womb
    And no matter what they say
    My brand will never cease to burn

    Obliterate

    We cut down the trees
    To build huge slabs of concrete
    And call them works of art
    And I can't wait for the day
    Where God obliterates our buildings
    And leaves the sky and ground
    Bare and raw
    The way they should be

    Imprisoned

    I feel imprisoned
    In the slabs of stone
    We built to hold ourselves in
    I feel stuck
    Running a race
    For a prize I don't want
    I feel trapped
    Left on the ground broken
    Watching birds fly far away
    And all I can do is run
    To find more places to lose my heart
