Hope

Hope is what keeps us alive on the inside.

The hope for a better future.

The hope that some day, we may just have enough courage to pursue our dreams.

Even if it means letting go of what we have now.

My story unfolds

The story of my life,

It unfolds one day at a time,

In front of my very eyes.

Cinematically, I witness all events in first person narrative.

On a more exciting note,

It's like directing my own screenplay. 

Never knowing what one decision may lead to,

I have a tendency to take the road less traveled.

To take risks in order to broaden my worldview, to perceive from new horizons. 

But I know when I've discovered where I am meant to be. 

Although an adventurer at heart,

there's no place like home.

Home is where the heart is,

to reserve time for the people that mean a lot to me.

Blurred Lines

Are we together or are we not?

My heart skips a beat when you smile at me.

Your radiance lights up the night sky.

Effortlessly, you've become my sweetheart.

Another disappointment

Being a contract worker sucks.

You never know if you will get a job renewal.

You might get demoted, reduced to part-time, or asked to volunteer instead of work.

Of course, it's with the company's best interest in mind to recruit the brightest and most brilliant. 

But do you ever consider the stress you put us under, everytime you interview a possible candidate and ask me to train them?

Along with the fear of replacement comes that jaded spidey-sense. 

That after three jobs, I'vs finally understood what open communication means.

It means that I need to give you appropriate notice when I'm interviewing for my next possible gig, while you try to replace me prior to the end of my contract.

It's time for me to get a better job. One where contracts last at least a year, and may lead to a permanent position. I need a stable income without the constant fear of replacement.

Self-worth

I'm not going to let you determine what I'm worth.

I may not be as pretty, skinny, athletic, or smart as you'd hoped for. 

I'm unashamed of being authentically me, and that's the best you could ever ask for.

If you're not happy with me, that's fine. I mean it.

Just don't waste my time playing mind games. Please let me move on  and live my life. I'm sure there's plenty of people out there who appreciate who I am.

If ever someone makes you feel that you're not good enough, they're not worth your time. Have courage to be who you are.

Enchanted

From a distance, you catch my eye. You're ethereally exquisite. What am I worth in comparison? You're an angel and I'm just a passersby.

Explain to the one you love why you will not be joining them in the afterlife...
Written by Catch_Phrase in portal Poetry & Free Verse

Just Walk Away

In this life, I've loved you more than you deserved.

Prioritized and empathized your whimsies,

but I was never enough.

Not for you anyway.

The day your mistress flaunted your relationship to me,

enough was enough.

Previously, I had turned a blind eye,

but now the truth is blatantly in my face.

I once had a glimmer of hope,

that one day you would realize how valuable I was.

But now I know, it's time for me to walk away.

Visual inspiration! Poetry/Prose: Pick an image, any image, and write a poem about it! It can be distinctly about the image itself, or whatever the image makes you feel/think. Just go with the flow! I'll do one too. Make sure to upload your chosen image as a header and tag me!

Shadow

Everyone has a shadow.

A wounded past with scars to bear,

a darker side than the persona we portray,and self-serving motives unbridled by ambition.

Recently, its' been hard listening to your dark humour.

Your so-called jokes about slashing your wrists,

jumping out the window and off the bridge.

I'm really a nobody to call you out on this.

Honestly, I wouldn't know what to do if I was in your predicament.

I just wish you could lighten up.

Why bother?

A lot of things don't matter.

What are people going to remember about you?

Surely not your titles, awards, nor publications.They're going to cherish the impact you've made on their lives.

Read and ignored? Or unread?

Ever hate waiting for a response via text or email?

I always wonder...

Did you mute my chat?Did my message automatically end up in the junk pile?

Did you read it and decide to hold me in suspense?

Did you have nothing to say in response?

I wish there was a notification sign for muted, trashed, ignored, and understood.

An unanswered message has so many interpretations.

If only I could read your mind.
