    *midnight thoughts*
    …Will it be enough?
    Will they tell your story?
    *looks up at the grey sky*
    Was it not enough?
    I was not enough to tell your story…
    Two halves of the same whole. No room for a third. Pushed out, slowly, until I was but a passing petal in the wind. Were we friends? Are we friends? Can you feel the hole you’ve punched…[Read more]

        Those are some beautiful, very, very poetic thoughts… you are enough, Gingie. You are enough, and I love you so much.

    I can’t choose
    Between the two
    Ends of a spectrum
    Pulling me apart
    Tears like acid
    Pooling at my feet
    Face twisted in agony
    Hands reaching for the frayed end of a rope
    A gray lifeline midst the sea of monochrome
    Sloppy stitches over my breaking heart
    A bandaid holding back the flood
    Soon to break.

    I can’t move
    Through the fog
    Anchored in…[Read more]

        WOAH THIS IS AWESOME. First off, thank you for the warm welcome, and will do the Best Things About People doc! It is.. the same temperature for me as for you, Ginger, probs, and… I CAN”T WAIT TO HAVE TURKEY. Amen, Kira, and we really need to stand for our friends in times of need, and others who might not be our friends anyway. Thank you again!

        Ooh yay Poet Gang! I kind of maybe forgot about this for a few weeks, but I remembered again recently and wondered when the next meeting was going to be.

        Cool! And I can’t wait to eat food. Lots of food, even though it won’t necessarily be turkey. I have a lot of schoolwork so I don’t think I’ll be as active but still will be here. I had pumpkin pie for breakfast today and it was great! Anything I’m thankful for… hm, I’m thankful that I have a home and that can afford to eat three meals a day.…[Read more]

        Thea… We’ll tell your story. Not the one of the great leadership. Not the lies about an icon. We’ll tell the story of a human girl who was bashed down so many times, and has the courage to still live. Breathe. Write. Exist. We’ll tell the story of her kindness, her friendship, but we will always remember that she is human. We’ll tell the story…[Read more]

    There are words I hold upon my tongue
    Unable to set free
    I bite my lip and spout a lie
    Force my lips to stretch up high
    Ink scrawls boldly across my face
    Hidden secrets forever encased
    As teardrops blur the sentences
    I painstakingly wish to say-
    If only my eyes could convey.

    Instead, I continue to waste away
    My silence a tonic I take every…[Read more]

        Again, you astound me. I can’t even explain, but I am literally crying right now, and that was… you have a gift, I”m sure you know that, but I can’t even- these resonate so deep that I can’t- *I hug you super tightly.* I’ll be spoeing you a lot more often.

    Behind her smile
    Her eyes of sky
    There lies a heart of glass
    Cracked and welded many times over
    Beating with a fading light
    Succumbing to sorrow.
    .
    Still, she slides a mask into place
    Week days bleeding in copy paste
    Eventually, a tear slips through the cracks
    Falling in a slow motion play, all black,
    Towards the ground in a thunderclap.…[Read more]

        AUTUMN

        The whisper of the wind,
        The crunch of the leaves,
        The stirring of the animals,
        The happiness in our hearts.

        My favourite thing about Autumn,
        Is the fresh breeze,
        And the crunchy leaves,
        The magical trees.

          beautifulsophie replied 2 months ago

          You should put that on the Google doc

        cocostar replied 2 months ago

        I wrote one a while ago, would that count?

          Thank you for the reminder, Coco. A slight bit late, though.
          It is impressive that you managed to find this. You are a very determined spoe.

          cocostar replied 2 months ago

          You’re welcome and sorry.
          Teehee yes I am.
          Not all that impressive, sadly:(

          effie replied 2 months ago

          How sad.
          You know what would be great?
          If you found the first ever post on this site.

          cocostar replied 2 months ago

          Lol I did Fia. A little while ago, but according to Cats it isn’t the first.

          effie replied 2 months ago

          Yeah, I know that now. You should find a post from . . . when book 2 came out. (And it can’t be from Soman or Jun’s activity.)

          cocostar replied 2 months ago

          Oohhh like a spoe challenge?
          1. Find a post from 9months 3weeks ago
          2. Find a post about fruit.

          effie replied 2 months ago

          Hmm . . . this is going to be difficult. The nine months three weeks ago is no big deal; I can just look through a few older users’ activities. But the fruit . . . hm. Does watery banana sun count?

          I feel like no one ever tells you how empty depression makes you feel 24/7. It’s like trying to spark a fire on wet wood.

          It’s pretty exhausting, but my body is like: sleep? We’ve never heard of her.
          I know you’d take it all away, even bring it onto yourself, but unfortunately, we’ve all got our own weight to bear, and this happens to be part of mine. It’s hard to separate where each stressor comes from, and half the time I’m too tired to…[Read more]

          thecoven4ever replied 3 months ago

          That makes sense in a sucky way. You do therapy right? You could try and pinpoint your triggers with your therapist, although you might already be doing that. If you don’t go to therapy you should! It’s very helpful. Love you Lauren ❤️❤️❤️

          theginger replied 3 months ago

          I do, but sometimes they don’t work.

          theginger replied 3 months ago

          Also, since you were the last Poet of the Month, do you have any activities or closing Remarks you’d like to contribute?

          thecoven4ever replied 3 months ago

          Oh! Hmmm…
          Maybe just something like “love y’all stay safe!” XD idk

          theginger replied 3 months ago

          You can do whatever you want! I’m doing my part of the remarks on John Lewis, but you could do something fun!

          thecoven4ever replied 3 months ago

          I have no idea honestly. Maybe just the quote:
          “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
          I took the toad less traveled by
          And that has made all the difference”
