dear me,

you do not have a terrible heart. you do not
have sad eyes and love is not a war you need
to win. sometimes i feel like disappearing, but
remember:

we are never really alone.

dear me,

every now and then, you can close your eyes
and still find your way. remember to breathe
because you did not sink a paper boat and you
are not floating underwater. you already know
the answer to the question you are looking for.

dear me,

remember the small things, like the writing in
the borders of pages. see the things that
everyone else misses. listen to your thoughts
and then lose yourself.

dear me,

laugh until it makes you cry. see things you've
never seen in people before. stop worrying about
your hair and call him just to say i miss you.

dear me,

do something different and you will be surprised.
let yourself enjoy the sunrise. try and say toy-
boats ten times in a row without tangling it up.
have silly conversations about cows eating grass
off your bed in your room.

dear me,

you are never really alone. you do not have sad
eyes. your eyes are

glowing.


sincerely yours,

poem.
and he said to me:

you do not have sad eyes.
your eyes are

glowing.



finally made something from my journal: [link]

Omg. LOVE the fact that the poem can talk back to you. It's really cute and weird, but I sometimes feel like my writing is a part of my soul, and every time I put it down, it just twists into something that isn't entirely part of ME anymore (and yet it is).

Thanks for sharing.

"dear me,

laugh until it makes you cry. see things you've
never seen in people before. stop worrying about
your hair and call him just to say i miss you."

I think that is my favourite section of this poem.
It's something I can really relate to, especially the last line.
I really do worry about my hair too often,
and I really should call him and tell him I miss him.


"do something different and you will be surprised."

This line is also very relatable, because it's something all people should do.


Overall, I really enjoy this poem. The idea is fresh, and your thoughts toward yourself are very honest.

"dear me,

you do not have a terrible heart. you do not
have sad eyes and love is not a war you need
to win. "

You have no idea how these lines struck me. My eyes literally welled with tears and my heart skipped a beat. I can relate to just those phrases so strongly in some recent experience.... The remainder of the poem, the scattered but hopeful phrases were uplifiting.

"dear me,

you are never really alone. you do not have sad
eyes. your eyes are

glowing.


sincerely yours,

poem. "

I really love how human your writing is. I can tell you are very thoughtful and empathetic, just like me, hehe :love:

anyhow! enough rambling. you've inspired me to post some of my poetry, even though my DA is focused on my artwork. :blowkiss: Thank you! :heart:

dear you,

sometimes the things that you write can bring tears to my eyes and a smile to my lips and it is all that i can do not to try and copy what you've said onto my heart for the times when i feel insignificant or lonely, so they can remind me that i am simply human as we all are, and that sometimes, we all need to remind ourselves of that.

sincerely yours,

me

I'm glad I am too. But, after all, life is a learning process, and more importantly: life is what you make of it. If you aren't happy with your life, it's in your power alone to change it so it does make you happy.
