It hurts.

It Hurts.

Shoe laces taken

All you know, shaken

Not  a  razor  or  knife in sight

Still the pain sears through the night.

Corridors full of  eternal walkers

Going  nowhere, watched  by  stalkers.

Screams  erupt  so do  tussles

Held down by  ‘staff ‘ with muscles.

Nothing  stops  the pain  NOTHING

Smile at family don’t let them see the bluffing.

It hurts, it  hurts  you  needs  to  bleed

A sacrifice to the demon’s seed.

Doors  slam, locks  turn

Fears  grow behind  doors  souls burn

Help me  please help me

Blind eyes don’t see…………

Shoe laces taken

All you know,  shaken

Not  a  razor  or  knife in sight

Still  the pain sears  through  the night.

This is for mental health day

The Old Guy … Think Kindly …

from Geezer94

Think Kindly

.

When I am gone,

I hope you think kindly of me.

That there is a memory of us,

That brings a smile …

To your heart.

.

Remember … these old eyes once,

Contained a spark of life,

With all the joy of the young,

With all the hope ..

Of the loved.

.

When I am gone,

Remember our laughter,

The tears we shared,

And how our hearts sang,

From our shared whimsical smiles.

.

Oh when I am long resting in peace,

Put down the words for all to read.

To share once again,

This day and next,

My prayer and smile for all of you.

CANDICE LOUISA DAQUIN

from INDIE BLU(E)

Indie Blu(e) Publishing

candice daquin

Daquin’s own life, traveling from her native France, via England, Canada and finally the US, has brought a myriad of experiences that others have often been able to tap into via her writing. A collection of lives really, and with this, she tries to weave greater meaning through poetry and touch those who experience similar questions, doubts, and hopes. Surely this is what writing attempts in its very human form?

Daquin’s themes include feminism in its complex, everyday form, and the experience of being a woman, a gay woman, a bi-racial woman, a bi-cultural woman and finally, a Jewish woman of Egyptian extraction (Mizrahi) and how this sits with the world’s current revolt between the dominant faiths.

“I have been told from readers of my published and non-published works that reading poetry which resonates with your emotions, helps you see things clearer, assists in remembering what really matters and enables you…
