Write a heartfelt poem to someone who doesn’t know they had an impact on you, telling them anonymously how they made a difference in your life.
She says she reads all my posts,
For better or for worse.
So I hope she sees this quickly,
And that she knows who this is about.
Forget the prompt,
I hope she knows exactly how much of an impact she’s made on me.
And I wanted to write this on Daily Prompt,
Because I put so much of myself on this app.
I put every ugly, selfish part of me on here,
And every secret I’d never tell.
And it’s one thing...
I bet you hardly think
Of me; there wouldn’t
Be a fond memory
To call upon, nothing
To call back a sentiment
Resembling my shadow.
Now, when I think
Of this place, I only
Can think of you.
There’s little else
Crossing my mind
Other than your
Positivity, you energy.
I truly felt a synergy
Between us, as if you
Understood my viewpoint
Of life on a fundamental
Alas, there was...
Oft on rainy midnights
I wish that I could sleep
Though you keep my eyes wide open
There’s no point in counting sheep
But the creaking of the rocking chair
Your nightlight’s soft white glow
Has become a welcome ritual
I’ve grown grateful to know
Your fuzzy head against my arm
Your fingers around mine
Those rosy cheeks reminding me
You truly are divine
Your tiny eyes close once more
dying of old age is naive optimism
so wipe your nose and swallow your tears
stand on broken bones, raise bloodied hands
and die young, die screaming, a martyr
they’ll take your name, they’ll take your story,
they’ll write it down, they’ll hold it up,
they’ll turn you into something worthy of glory,
and forget you as someone worthy of love
you were a child, you were a teacher
you were just walkin...
Dedicated to someone who will probably never see this, but who was instrumental in helping me find an outlet through poetry.
To all we’ve written together, and all the lovely discussions we’ve had.
And more than anything: thank you.
Our conversations flow like magic
My thoughts end where yours began
You are brilliant, but you never
Make me feel less than
You always point out your own fla...
he doesn’t know how he lights up my world
he doesn’t know how everything in my life revolves around him nowadays
he doesn’t know how much I wish I were “his girl”
he doesn’t know how I wish this feeling would just go away but at the same time, forever stay
he doesn’t know how the thought of him holds me up, keeps me going through the day
he doesn’t know I see his big blue eyes everywhere I look
The only one who asks about me everyday.
You never cry, you always know what to say.
Though I’ve not seen you since the dawn of May.
I long the night when we shall again sway.
You make me laugh,
more than anyone I’ve known.
And maybe one day,
we could call someplace our home.
For now I’ll guard my heart,
until we aren’t apart.
Sick days and sad days,
we’ll never be too far.
I’ll watch the movie...
When I first met you,
I was stunned.
How could we be so similar?
We shared thoughts,
Perceptions, deep feelings.
Sometimes sugar and vinegar.
As the saying goes,
“Great minds think alike,”
Our minds must’ve been great,
Gears spinning like on a bike.
You talked with me,
Till late at night.
You talked with me,
Till morning light.
When it was time,
You gave me a reminder.
Sternly, you texted:
You were always there for me
Even when I was just a shy, timid little girl
You helped me out of my shell
Your presence was always comforting
Making me feel joyful and happy
Never bringing me down
You lit up the whole room
Wherever or whenever it may have been
Shining brightly like the sun
I wish I could’ve spent more time with you
Before you left me and this world behind
To go rest with the sta...
