i’m doing a month long exploration into my poetry (this is the 5th instalment, i’ll be uploading them out of order) - thankful.
TELESILLA was a Greek lyric poet who lived in Argos in the fifth century BCE. Along with the famous poet Sappho, Telesilla was named as one of the Nine Female Lyric Poets of Greece, and is known for both her lyric poetry (even though only two lines survive) and for her courage as the defender of Argos against Sparta.
i wonder if he knows that his existence
makes it easier for me to live
it’s not fair to put the warranty
of my life on another human being
so i’ll never tell him this,
but i hope he knows that i adore him
knowing him makes me wish for
the sun never burns when i’m around him

You all forget us.
We see it.
We see it in your flying cars and rovers to Mars.
We see it in your pipelines and how you disregard life signs.
How can you innovate and yet forget who it’s for?
You push us to assimilate.
To embrace your change.
To reshape our lives.
You Persuade us to forgive your mistakes as you try to upgrade and escape.
You leave us
Abandoned on a wasteland you created for profit.
You forget us
As we no longer are apart of your future to build and sell.
You deem us unremarkable.
Our dreams and talents wasted as we are not builders of machines.
Nor laborers for your dreams.
You leave us nothing.
But we are writers
and we have created more from less.
So you forget us.
You will remember soon.
I look at her with so much love
While bright eyes stare right back
A smile pulls at my face
As I think of calling her my wife one day
-Wife- that term and her combined make me giddy
I feel so high, free and alive around her
Every touch sparks a feeling deep within me
I’ve never been so greedy towards someone’s attention but I don’t feel the slightest bit of remorse
She brings me peace
Finally I have a home within my person
My one true
