Everytime you turn around, Your eyes dart to me. Can we break that bound? Which is stopping you to see. Ignorant not I am Of profound mysteries of your heart. Something between you & I You badly want to start. I could feel the depth of your feelings. Trust me, Mine run deeper than yours. I too spend night staring at my ceiling Wearing smile that assures. Our eyes meet sometimes, And my stomach gets fluttering butterflies. It turns hard to resist that blush. My heart and mind break allies. I have never been here before In situation kinda this. Where few teeny-weeny moments, I already conceit. We haven't talked yet You might take some time. I am in no hurry Or may be I am. Because good things never take so much time. . . . #words #poetry #wordstagram #poetsofinsta #writingcommunity #poeticarena #mirakee #writersnetwork #inspiredpostz #wrtingspook #agirlwrites

[5/6] When you're completely taken over by love, every little thing seems like a reminder of the person you adore. Nature, birds, even the air you breathe are somehow linked to the whole feeling of being in love. It consumes you and that's why it's universally known to be so powerful and all-encompassing. I see you in the bright rainbow I hear you in the whistling of the wind, I smell your sweet scent in every lavender, I touch a feather, of you I think. #svpoetry #vintagesapience #poetsofinsta #poetsofig #poetsofindia #poetscorner #writerscorner #writingcommunity #writersofinstagram #writersofindia #igposts #spilledink #mirakee #everything #micropoetry #inspiration #overwhelming #igpoets #myworld #writer #yourquote #happy #forever #lavender #igpoetsociety #spilledink #rainbow #perfectmoment   #feather #lovers

Let the process happen naturally. 🍂 tag someone you know who needs this reminder. I know I need it on a regular basis

a few lines from “goner.” 🌿 after the response to the release of my first book, i felt this immediate permission to “be a writer.” it was as if i had proved something to the voice of doubt in myself - that i wasn’t just a musician, that my words weren’t only lyrics. so, when i began writing the second collection of poems, i questioned myself less. i trusted my gut more and spoke about intimately about the darkest parts of my mind and soul without question. so much so that now that i’m a little fearful of the release of this book, if i’m being honest. i really didn’t hold back whatsoever. this is by far the most revealing and personal thing i’ve ever created. “the hurting” - a collection of poems by richard cortez, illustrated by @michaeljhildebrand - available oct 15th. limited edition. • #authorsofinstagram #bookstagram #poet #poetsofinsta #poets #poem #poems #poetry #poetryinmotion #poetrybook #goodreads #bookworm #bookclub #wordshurt #relationshipquotes #heartbreakquotes #heartbrokenquotes #heartbroken #heartbreak #spilledink #writerslife #writingcommunity #writersoninstagram #writersofig #quotesaboutlove #quotesaboutlife #poetsofig #writer #prose

richardcortez. a few lines from “parts.” - my 2nd book of poetry, the hurting, is now

a few lines from “parts.” - my 2nd book of poetry, the hurting, is now available at the very affordable price of $20. link in bio. it’s a one time run - so, get a copy for yourself if you’re a fan of my work. your support helps me to continue to create. thank you. 🌿 sometimes, as an artist, you have to do what makes you the most uncomfortable. you have to push yourself further - beyond the comfortable spaces you’ve learned to create in. poetry is relatively new to me. it only really became a way with which i could express myself when my mental health got so bad that i couldn’t bring myself to sing. creating and releasing this work has been one of the most challenging experiences in my personal development. i came face to face with monsters and memories i’d been burying for years. i have found there are less boundaries in poetry. i gave the little boy inside me that i tried so desperately to forget a voice. and now, i’m giving these stories to the world because survivors of abuse sometimes need something tangible they can relate to. experiences that remind them they aren’t alone in how their body, mind and spirit remember pain. buy this book for yourself and then give it to someone you know who needs it. my hope is that it becomes one of those books. passed between friends, lovers and survivors as a means to connect and heal. in these poems, i share a lot about how sexual abuse and childhood exploitation impacts me as an adult. these sometimes difficult topics are pristinely illustrated by the very talented @michaeljhildebrand. michael - thank you for doing all the work you did on this project with me. you held the very delicate parts of my trauma and my past and treated them with such care. i love you. this is “the hurting.” • #authorsofinstagram #bookstagram #poet #poetsofinsta #poets #poem #poems #poetry #poetryinmotion #poetrybook #goodreads #bookworm #bookclub #wordshurt #relationshipquotes #heartbreakquotes #heartbrokenquotes #heartbroken #heartbreak #spilledink #writerslife #writingcommunity #writersoninstagram #writersofig #quotesaboutlove #quotesaboutlife #poetsofig #writer #prose #metoo

Crazy days zoomed through my mind like a drone over Clifton. My mind was a maze. I often escaped in the clouds, embracing the beauty of the colours, running wild with my imagination, gazing at its beauty. Dreaming. Doors slammed shut like how the moon pulled the sea, my life tossing and crashing like massive waves in stormy seas. Youth cruised through Clifton croggying each other on handle bars, being overtaken by the moped mad dogs zipping around the road overtaking said youth and generally causing a hazard on the highway. As the sounds of the hairdryers faded into the distance like squibs on mopeds, the night drew in and the sky darkened. Every negative was an opportunity to learn and change. Every positive was an opportunity to grow and develop and find self belief. You only get one life to live and be your majestic god crafted incredible self.

Three things we took with us when we left the tower: 1. 30 years worth of shoes that fit neither of us, making the years between 1972 and 2002 like family albums- those were lost to us. • 2. Binoculars. For seeing ourselves at a distance and blurring the closeness between us into close Impressionism until we couldn’t see anything real at all. • 3. Your mother’s ashes concealed in a potted aloe Vera plant after the urn broke when you remembered that men do in fact know how to cry.

// this is my first attempt at spoken word and the first time i’ve been brave enough to even do it! i’m still feeling super self conscious and trying to talk myself out of deleting this. but hopefully it wasn’t too awful haha ••• this poem was inspired by the myth of The Hanahaki Disease 🥀 swipe to read it + the last few lines that didn’t make it into the video because of instagram video time limits lol (read/like/reblog this on my blog! drunk-on-writing.tumblr.com 🌹) .

Have you heard of love languages? We each have our own, even multiples. I just think our languages were foreign to each other, ♡
