Free Poetry Book

This Tuesday February 7th until Saturday February 11th!

This is a collection of poems, thoughts, short stories, and art. I hope you enjoy them.

Many of my poems might be dark and depressing, but writing is how I cope with things life throws at us. When I’m frustrated, hurt, and sad, I write. It helps me cope with my feelings though not every poem will fit this description, most of them will.

I write on a slew of subjects; motherhood, family, miscarriage, children, raising children and many more. Sometimes moms get into a competition of who’s the better mother or who has the best kids, whose job is hard, and that mindset helps no one. I promise to be as real as I can, hoping the things that have challenged me can help someone else.

Ramblings contains poems from the following books:

Ramblings of the Mind
Ramblings of the Soul
Ramblings of the Heart
Ramblings of the Spirit

Wednesday Poetry Prompt #1

Each Wednesday in my Facebook writing group, we do Poetry Prompts. I wanted to start sharing them here as well.

The prompt for this Wednesday: Write a Poem About Jealously.


Jealousy

It boils up in me.
Ready to explode
My heart races and
These thoughts come to me
Making me questions it all.

Jealousy, it's a raging fire.
Jealousy, tearing my heart out.
Jealousy, and I can’t see
Jealousy, Jealousy

I’m ready to explode,
Ready to infinite
The fire building in me.

I can’t think of anything
It doesn't make sense
This feeling inside of me
Making me question,
Making me fear.

Jealousy, it's a raging fire.
Jealousy, tearing my heart out.
Jealousy, and I can’t see
Jealousy, Jealousy

Open Door

Open Door
The door’s always open.
Some will enter,
Others will leave,
But it’s always open.

It’s your choice, 
to enter or not,
But I’m always here.

Your Tears

Your tears break me.
When I see you in pain,
I just want to take it away.
Wipe the tears from your eyes.
Hug all the pain away.

I don’t know how to do that.
And I don’t know what to do.

 Your tears break me.

Did You Hear My Words?

You didn’t say anything.
Did you hear my words?
Do you know?

Did you know that I prayed for you every day?
Did you know you were never far from my thoughts?
My heart ached for I knew you were in pain.

You stopped talking to me.
But I didn’t know.
If you could talk or
Was it just me?

Did I do something wrong?
Did you hear my words, or
Was I a bother to you?

You didn’t say anything.
But I kept praying
And now I am left with wonder.

And now you are gone.
And I will never know.
If you heard my words.

The Things They Say

They say the right things,
Music to your soul.
But it's like a dagger to your heart.
As the words are corrupted. 

Like a slow seeping venom,
It creeps in and infects you.

When you think you are part of their life,
But you realize you are not. 

Like a dagger to the heart, 
Blood flows freely.
The deception is clear,
But the pain seeps into
Every fabric of your being. 

Numbing you,
As your tears dry on your face.

You feel nothing as those words ring in your ears.

When You Hold On

A long time ago someone told me that people give up on them easily.
And I reassured them that I do not give up on people.

People tend to give up on me,
But I would be someone’s friend until the end.
Until they are the ones pushing me out and moving on without me.

When you hold onto friends, 
Sometimes holding on is a good thing. 
Sometimes it makes your bond stronger.
Sometimes they grow tired of you
Sometimes they hate you for it
Sometimes, however, they love that you have not forgotten them.

So, what is the answer?
Do you hold on or let go?

Forgive Me

Forgive me
Maybe I am to blame,
Maybe it was me this time. 

We think about forgiveness and giving it
But how to do forgive yourself?
How to do you heal and seek guidance
From the one you have wronged
How do you both come to terms and move on

Move on to bigger and better.
Move on to things that matter.
And create once again
How do we do this?

I do not Understand Hate.

I do not Understand Hate.
I lost control and I don't know what to do.
Sometimes I feel like my mind is stuck in the past.
I can’t stop thinking about things that happened,
And I know I need to move on but it’s hard. 

Don’t hold grudges.
I know I go out of my way to show people that I 
Don’t hold grudges. 

What do you do when someone
 has hardened their heart to you?
Not much you can do
I still won't hold a grudge
Just pray for them

If they came to me for help,
I would help
But there is a point when you can forgive,
 but not let people go back in the way you did in the past. 

Is it selfish to think someone will come back to you
Realizing that they miss you or need you?
Why was i so easy to write off?
The hatred I do not understand. 



Gone

Gone
 
We used to talk
We used to confide
In each other 
But now that is gone.

Something we loved is gone
Broke and gone
Can we still call each other friends?
Will you still be there for me,
When our craft is gone, can we still be kind?

But you made your mind up.
And now it's over!
Your choice, not mine! 
It's time for me to go.
