i need the original link

Spoken Word Poetry Recs

An updated version of this post that I wrote out for @mythaelogy​ a while back <3 I just need to fan girl about these things (+ I added links)

I have seen the best of you, and the worst of you, and I choose both.

Over and over again (“You are beautiful”)

And when they finally hand you heartache, when they slip war and hatred under your door and offer you handouts on street-corners of cynicism and defeat, you tell them that they really ought to meet your mother.

Still now, I send letters into space. Hoping that some mailman somewhere will track you down and recognize you from the descriptions in my poems.

Once, when you were seven, you came into the kitchen and asked mum: “Does my name begin with the letter P because P is the 16th letter of the alphabet and I was born on June 16th and is Sarah just Sarah because S is 19th letter and she was born on the 19th day of June?”

…father, farther, are little mazes, mouse-traps, cul-de-sacs, this house is amazing, this house is amazing, this house is amazing, this house is amazing, this house is amazing, farther

My mother taught me this trick if you repeat something over and over again it loses its meaning

Electricity bowing to nature / Mind bowing to heartbeat / This is gonna hurt bowing to I love you / I still love you like moons love the planets they circle around

This year has been the hardest of your whole life.
So hard you cannot see a future, most days.

This is my garden song /This is my fist fight / with that bitter frost / Tonight I begged another stage light to become that back alley street lamp that we danced beneath

Watch me tentacles and teeth. Watch me resurrected electric.

Strawberry-cheeked gourmet popsicle ladies who stay out all night drinking midori sours and somersaulting over their polka-pineapple platform heels
Pop goes the world.

Madame Butterfly. Japanese woman falls in love with a white soldier, is abandoned, kills herself.
Miss Saigon. Vietnamese woman falls in love with a white soldier, is abandoned, kills herself.

  • Names” by Rachel Rostad

When you name your daughter, it’s a prayer for everything you want her to be.

What has happened to our conviction?
Where are the limbs out on which we once walked?

you built a cast around your broken heart / and signed it yourself / you signed it “they were wrong”

See, this is from my father. see, this is from my brother. see, this is from that weird girl. see this is from my mother. it took me two days to figure out that
that weird girl, is his sister.

Write me a poem to make me happy. / So I write. / Move pen move,
Write me a bedroom where cures make love to our cancers…

The failing use of my right hand isn’t actually the failing use of my right hand it’s just another way to tell the time


Look :’) how far :’) she’s come since her first appearance :’) So proud of her :’) She’s so much happier :’)

hello! sorry to bother. im not really into kpop but this scene / post / 153009666291 is so pretty could you please link me to the original video? thank you so much

hi!!! you’re not a bother at all, the scene is from the original ‘I NEED U’ mv by bts, linked here. gahh i can’t say enough good things about this mv, but all their mvs are aesthetic af. basically watch bts music videos daily for good health.
just a warning, once you start traveling down the road of kpop, you may never be able to turn back. (which isn’t always a bad thing!)
