After a loss of words for awhile, I found some ink in my veins today.
Text for tired eyes :
42. I hope you find truth at the top of the bottle and not at the bottom of it.
For whatever reason, we will always be a little more honest by moonlight.
I don't know what it is about writing on random papers with coffee stains at one am.
When you reach the point of truth that rings so hard in your veins, you don't want to cover it with the label of drunken honesty so that people won't call you strange.
Like being able to say, 'I love you';
'I miss you.'
Like being able to accept you are wildfire and vanilla twilight at the same time.
Like saying, ' I'm proud of me, of what I've made of my life'.
Like saying, 'I'm proud of you.'
And I am, you know; I am proud of you.
I hope you know that.
Why cant love stories be like hers? I wonder.(sigh).. That girl who stayed at my vicinity was a rape and acid attack victim. Always timid and shy. Sometimes I wondered was the burden more from the society or her past? She was always told how she cant be enough in her life. Living with the fear of being attacked was almost like living with your breast to a knife. It was constantly hanging in her mind, butchering her confidence every day as a result of this laming fear. Then came a prince. To him as she was enough. Enough to be with him in his entire lifetime. N thus began their blissful romance.

@chrisadavey On Dunkirk by Chris A. Davey, November 2015.
I have been thinking about our war vets and fallen soldiers, and the many faces of unknown casualties. Imagining the horrors of trenches and chemical warfare, the blood draining on shores and beaches, hopeless cries sinking into the dark ocean, or the entire villages and cities destroyed by moments of senselessness. The men, women, and children starved, marched, and worked to their graves.
Lost. Scarred. Dehumanised.There are still too many living that hell on Earth today. Young and old people whose entire existences are of struggle and fear. We have sacrificed lives to take lives, depleted ground to gain ground, and destroyed cultures to force their assimilation.
Livelihoods strangled by nooses we've tied and hopes crushed under the boots we've laced. Each blade cuts both ways.Might we have been possessed by the demons of hatred and revenge, or motivated by man-made evils such as greed? Who benefits when we project and protect the ideas that so many are condemned to die for?
Just as the waves will wash corpses away from the beach, the visible marks of war can be erased but the cries still echo.
Many have given their lives so that we could be here to make and guide the right choices for the future – do not lose the gifts and lessons of their sacrifices.#TheLiteralScript#writersofig#writersofinstagram#writingcommunity#writerscommunity#writersblock#writerslife#poem#poems#poet#poets#poetsofig#poetsofinstagram#poetry#poetrycommunity#word#words#love#like#art#quote#quotes#book#books#writersblock#writerslife#story#writer#writing#reading#writings#writers

#igwritersmay revision process: It's not pretty but I usually zig zag moving forward a bit and then going back over and over again with lots of moments of major self-doubt until hopefully I'm done 🌸 #revisionprocess
From hand picked cherries to home made BBQ sauce and ketchup (not in this picture). Mostly because we didn't want to buy products in plastic bottles, but also it's a good way to use up our cherries. It's the joy of farm to fork!
Doodle Art Poetry Truths #1 The phenomenon is sweeping social media poets and even getting published in corporate bookstores (ok there's only one left ) but now for the first time Doodle Art Truths tell the poetic truth and definitely not what they want to hear although deep down they know it's true. Their poetry sucks. So many glancers have fallen under the doodle art spell and just about every other poetess you see even wannabe be milk and honey copy clones are joining the doodle dance poetry party. You're going about it the wrong way first you must post some kind of controversial picture on IG before you show your doodle art poems. That's how doodle poems work lots of blank space or a doodle that distracts. Perhaps, this doodle is too big but the idea the same. Controversial picture then doodle art don't be afraid take a picture of you with snot running out of your mouth and nose in bed. Is that not a natural body fluid we must not be ashamed of our snot both men and women have snot. Let's draw attention to ourselves then you doodle art poem. Happy doodling!
