I’m sorry this is late in the day.

It’s that time of month again. Creative Writing is Creative Thinking. Every last Wednesday of every month, I’ll be reinstating creative thinking but adding Creative Writing is Creative thinking. Let me explain a little more.

The last Wednesday of every month, I am going to post a picture with no words. I would like you to write a sentence of any form you want. You can write poetry, short stories, Diary entries, Journal Entries or letters. I really don’t care but It has to be ONE sentence of your choice.

The purpose of creative writing is creative thinking for members to create something out of nothing. Because a picture is worth a thousand words. So have fun and create. Please no negative comments. Negative comments will be deleted. Please have fun and happy writing. ⬇️

I’ll start

There is a beautiful sunset breaking through the trees making the sky and water look as if it is on fire.

Now it’s your turn. Don’t be shy. Create. #Writing #poems #shortstories

Isolation

Isolation is a clown’s smile

Painted red

Isolation is a lover

Because its kisses are sweet

Isolation is a tiger’s claw

Extended weapon

Isolation is a cloak

Like nights lure

Isolation is fear

Will you even know?

Isolation is a capturer

Stockholm’s friend

Isolation is mental illness

Because it’s all in your “head”

Isolation is a deadly prison

Like Bethlem screams

Isolation is voices

No one else can hear

Isolation is

Suicide

Sorry I didn't post. The days got away from me. Trying to catch up on homework.

Swing

Swing

Flying through the wind

Curling your legs underneath you

Swing

Head tilted back

Laughing because it’s uphill

Swing

Scraping feet against gravel

Trying to slow the up and down

Swing

Feet hitting the ground

But you can’t even rise from the

Swing

---

Depression and mania

Swings in the middle of the night

It’s creative outbursts

Suicide whispers

The dancing in the living room

Naps throughout the day

But when night hits

Once again

The grinning demon

Swings

Four: Inner Child

You’re four

I can still hear you cry

You almost never laugh

Sometimes you’re angry

Otherwise, desperate

Affection is lost now

Isolation is welcomed

You’re four

Eyes are blue

Hair matted to head

When you smile

It’s snatched away

Like a starving child

Reaching for that bread

You’re four

Never growing

Always stuck

I don’t know

How to heal someone

Who wants everything

And nothing

But you’re still

Four

Someday Again……. #Life #MightyPoets #poems

Someday again I will feel the movement of you inside my womb

Many will say I already have four children

Many will say you will be another blessing

I wanted you for so long, but my womb will not behave

Praying each time I see a positive ➕or a sign of missed periods 🩸but everytime it’s a negative ➖💔….. I cry in silence

If my Ovaries wasn’t so deceiving , I would be carrying you or ready to give birth.

Poor Ovaries screams every time I see a baby

I get so jealous seeing other women being pregnant 🤰🏽 it hurts when they announce 📣 the news on Facebook or Instagram

All i can do is congratulate 🎉them when the truth is I’m hating the fact they get to enjoy that moment

I’m not a jealous person so why do i feel that way all the time?

Even if I was able to conceive another baby , not a single person would be happy

But at that point i wouldn’t give a shit…..

Someday again,

I will be able to experience the pain and joy all over again it’s worth the pain.

I have no other words to say

But i pray one day i will be able to hold you in my arms…..

Someday again.

Don’t Tell Me How! #Depression #poems #depressionexpressions

Don’t tell me how to think, dear,
should ever feel the same
Just because you’re blind to it
isn’t immunity to pain…
Life’s a loop of memories,
existences in different times
all of these accumulate
and all become your mind
So don’t tell me how to feel now
while living in one long play….
It never ends, where’s the end?
Don’t tell me how to feel, dear
til you see all sunlight fade away…
hopelessness evades you now;
I pray it stays the same
If I tell you how to think, dear
just know, it’s ‘cause that’s where I’ve been
all that we can do now, it seems….
is to drag these chains until the end

How Do You...? ....... #MightyPoets

How do you let someone kiss you
When their lips are a nightmare reseen?

How do you let another hold you
When their touch makes you want to just scream?

How do you lay down next to someone
When you feel as rigid as a board?

How do you let another inside
When your heart's padlocked right to the core?

How do you open up to someone
When you can't put to words what you feel?

How do you give another your life
When your life doesn't even seem real?

How do you ground yourself to someone
When your need is to break free and fly?

How do you learn to trust another
When your walls are built up to the sky?

How can you share this time here on earth
When you have not a thing left to give?

How do you turn such pain into gain
When you're too scared to let go and live?

How do you ease the panic inside
When fear is a grip that won't end?

How do you quell the heartache and pain
When you're unsure which wound you should tend?

How do you give your soul up to love
When you still haven't found the right key?

How do you attach yourself to a world
When invisible's how you feel seen?

How do you heal those scars of the past
When bandaids are in short supply?

How do you learn you're more than enough
When tears flow nonstop through your eyes?

How do you fix this pattern of hurt?
Well this I so wish that I knew;
Cause I haven't a clue to the answers we seek
To each question that starts, "How do you…?"

The Struggle .......... #MightyPoets

I know many people who have joined AA
Yet I never stepped foot in that door;
I struggle with other addictions besides
Still I leave myself open for more.

I love how others say my story inspires
Yet I feel like a fake and a fraud;
As I look in the mirror, whom there do I see?
That little girl still hurt and lost.

I wake up each day with the best of intent
Yet fear and doubt usually win;
I force myself to take a shower and dress
But that's where it seems to all end.

My thoughts run away and take me with them
To places I wish were unknown;
Emotions evoked send me spiraling once more
The feelings of which leave me numb.

Depression within is a constant battle
It's heaviness weighs on my chest;
I struggle to breathe or just utter a word
Til the fight leaves me wanting to rest.

Still I pick myself up from one day to the next
Vow somehow I will make it right;
Then self sabotage or draw into my shell
Avoid connection day and night.

I've come to accept that I'll never outrun
Those demons which lead me astray;
At least not until I can handle the truth
I'm the obstacle in my own way.
.
Until then I'll struggle, mind set on unrest
My heart left in want of the key;
For the power to heal lies in but a gesture
Let go and God will set you free.
